So disappointed in the lunch selection at The Brown Derby. They are supposed to be known for their cobb salad... Thankfully, I only ordered a half order with the dressing on the side. It was chopped so fine you couldn't identify the chicken... and it was wet. The only thing good about the meal was the roll and butter. Would... More

Our extended family dined here, and had one of the best meals in Disney. Drinks were great, our waitress gave our 4 year old grandson a neon cube in his drink that made his day. Everyone enjoyed their food, cooked to perfection. A bit pricey, but other than that had no negative complaints. Would definitely recommend.

It lived up to all of my expectations. I had the Cobb Salad and the wagyu burger sandwich with the sunny side up egg on top. A meal I will not soon forget. If you are looking for an experience and not just something to eat, this is a must go.

We were a little nervous to take our 15 month old twins to a "nice" restaurant but there were tons of other kids there too since it is Disney and the food was excellent for all of us.

I really liked the Cobb salad, that's it. They have no lunch menu, not even half portions at reduced prices which would amount to a joke considering the pittance they give you. Pork chops were 2 3oz. Chops on top of a showing of potato puree at $42. The only good sized portions were the dining plan options. The wagyu... More

Food was unremarkable as was the restaurant. We were seated in a corner table and it was so cold my husband had to walk out early and I'm the 'cold blooded' one. We were miserable! Wish I had not wasted our menu plan with this place.

This is one of the upmarket restuarants in Disney Hollywood Studios and it is one of the best. We thought the food was excellent --- the only drawback was the speed of service. It was just too quick so you couldn't enjoy the quality of the food. Now I do appreciate that most people eating in a park want to... More

this themed restaurant was fun to try. We sat on the patio (which is first come first serve) and enjoyed people watching! My husband and I both had the Derby Classic cocktail with the floating florescent ice cube in it! Hubby had the cobb salad while I had the sliders - both were fabulous! Just right for a light afternoon... More

The hubby and I just got back from our anniversary trip without kiddos last week and this is one of our new favorites!! LOVE the atmosphere and setting, the crab cakes and Cobb salad was delish! My husband bragged on the primer in for 3 days and they even had a heart on the table and little glasses of champagne... More

My boyfriend works on Valentines Day so we had ours early. We are passholders but have never been here before. The dinner was perfect. Our server, Remy, was amazing--always anticipating what we would need and he was very knowledgeable about the menu. We did a dinner package for the Fantasmic show so we each received an appetizer, entree and dessert... More
