Very Nice

It was a moderately quiet Wednesday evening. Perfect for a first date. The waitstaff was attentive but didn't hover and also didn't rush us out. My grilled salmon salad was excellent. My date's steak was a bit overcooked, but he enjoyed it.

Tried to make a reservation for 11 at noon on Saturday. Was advised that they would only take a reservation up to 4 people. What a stupid policy. Will never go there again

Once upon a time (nearly 40 yrs ago) my parents occasionally splurged & took the family out for dinner. It was a big deal back then, and sometimes we were forced to "dress nice" so we could go to The Brown Derby. Sometime between then and now The Brown Derby completely fell off my radar. I guess I assumed they'd... More

We make it a regular treat on a Monday it Tuesday night to go and get their T-Bone special! It's grilled to sizzling perfection with their wonderful fresh baked buns and salad! I love the loaded baked potato with it or treat myself to the sweet potato! Best steak deal in Cleveland!

We had dinner here while doing a driving trip of the states. The inside is attractive, and the food was great. My husband had a great steak. He was ordering a different one and the waitress said we have a special on a different one which is even better. She did not have to do that as we would not... More

The hostess was the best thing about this restaurant. Service was slow, food salty and not hot when arrived. Very pricey for the food and service.

We haven't seen the owner lately who used to stop by each table and chat and we think the quality of the food has slipped a bit. Ordered the prime rib special on Sundays and it was dry with little flavor. (This had been my favorite in the past.) My husband's fish was okay but again nothing special. our server... More

We were on the road and stopped off in Medina for the night. Not a lot of places to eat, however Brown Derby was a good choice. Located right next to the Hampton Inn it is great for travelers. Service was good. The steak was cooked exactly as ordered. A nice casual place for a meal when on the road.

We have been to other Brown Derby's with much better selection. The food was good but maybe because I was disappointed in the selection of foods, I didn't think my meal was as good as at other Brown Derby's. My wife felt the same way.
