While I really wanted to give this place more stars I found my experience mixed. The atmosphere is very nice and you don't feel like you are dining in a theme park. The waitress we had was good but not great. She did not check on us for drinks while waiting for our meal. We ordered the chopped salad minus... More

Very disappointing for a Disney restaurant. Even though we had a reservation we had to wait a long time to be actually seated, this did not happen at Ny of the other places we ate. Food was mediocre at best. Table was really uneven. Server was very slow and forgot our drinks. Way better places to eat at Hollywood studios.

It is a restaurant set in the golden age of Hollywood, it is elegant and it eats very well. It has a very varied menu, and the service is first class.

You don't expect an elegant dining experience in a theme park, but dinner at the Briwn Derby was a wonderful experience. The service is friendly and relaxed and professional. cocktails were old school and strong. Appetizers were great, as were entrees. Dessert was old school but good. Overall an evening we will long remember.

We spent 11 days at Disney World and this was our favorite meal of the entire trip! The experience, food quality, choices and entire experience were out of this world. Easy to forget you were in a theme park.

I highly recommend catching lunch or dinner at the Brown Derby! This is one of our favorite restaurants at Disney; it is a mix of good food with a Hollywood feel! The food is delicious and it is easy to forget you're in the middle of the park. Make reservations! It is very hard to get a table without one.... More

We love the Hollywood Brown Derby and it is our favorite restaurant at Disney's Hollywood Studios. We dined there the week of Christmas after making reservations for dinner. As usual, the service was on point. Angelo from Morocco was our server (we requested him from our prior visit) and he was outstanding! We sat in a corner booth and dined... More

Best dinner I've had at Hollywood Studios. The service was excellent. After going to Disney for years had never tried this restaurant, from now on will definitely be one of my favorites.

$46.00 for Black grouper and lobster tail. Hmmmm. 2 ounces of Black grouper and the smallest lobster tail I have ever seen. I don't think so. Overpriced and overrated is the nicest thing I can say. The appetizers were just as disappointing. A fresh seasonal salad came with fresh berries and pear says the waitress....FOUR blueberries and no pear, only... More
