Description: 50's Prime Time Café serves classic American comfort food in a TV-themed setting. The restaurant sits across from Echo Lake in Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park.The 50's Prime Time Café menu includes family favorites like golden fried chicken, traditional meatloaf and pot roast, cooked the way Mom used to make it—that is, if Mom were a 1950s sitcom star.Be welcomed into Mom's family and feel at home in her kitchenette. But Mom expects you to mind your manners, so don't be surprised if she tells you to keep your elbows off the table. It's all part of the old-fashioned fun and gentle ribbing that's served up along with the food.TV Tables and Tune-In LoungeFor a special treat at 50's Prime Time Café, grab a "TV Table" that seats up to 4 diners and has a television next to the table that broadcasts clips from popular prime time sitcoms circa 1955 including "Father Knows Best" and the original "Mickey Mouse Club."Bop into 50's Prime Time Café for lunch or dinner. Cocktails, wines by the glass and frosty beers are available from Mom for Guests 21 years of age and older, or relax in the Tune-In Lounge full-service bar and sip Dad's Electric Lemonade or Grandma's Picnic Punch.From the mid-50s knick-knacks and memorabilia that decorate this restaurant to the dessert menu displayed through viewfinder toys, nostalgia is the main ingredient at 50's Prime Time Café.

“Tune In Lounge a great "hidden" spot!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

We came across the Tune In Lounge (adjacent to the 50s Prime Cafe) in December, and had it on the agenda for this trip as a great place to stop in for a drink and bite while at HS. Worked out perfectly for us. Although the lounge was pretty busy with guests waiting for tables, we lucked up and were able to grab a spot at the bar when we walked in. They were very busy but were with us as quickly as possible. We both had drinks (a generous wine pour, FYI) and just wanted to split a salad and entree. Food came out so fast we almost weren't even ready!!!!! We had the veg lasagna, which was really quite good! Caesar salad was lightly dressed (our preference) and fresh. We were able to order a second drink to take with us t walk around the parks. A great time and a definite for places to stop at HS!!!

“Food was good, not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Had lunch here during our day at Hollywood Studios and while the service was outstanding and the atmosphere very cool, the food was just average. Wouldn't go back. I had the pot roast and my wife had the pot pie. Again good, but not great.

“Fun restaurant with very good food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

This is a must visit restaurant on any trip to Disney World. The waitstaff all treat you like family (really!). The food is just like home cooked; the meatloaf and fried chicken are excellent. the entire restaurant has a 1950's kitchen theme with b&w TV's all around playing clips from old TV shows. Great experience!

“Great Dinner and hilarious service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

I want to start that we still talk about "Uncle" Dale! He was excellent and hilarious. My daughter says she misses uncle Dale, and we will be returning for the great food and milkshakes!
