After a 30 months minute wait at Hollywood Studios, we finally got a table (should have made reservations). My filet was very good as was my wife's grouper. Our waiter was very good and the atmosphere was old Hollywood.

We first ate at this restaurant a couple of years ago. We loved it, amazing food, first class service, so we definitely wanted to eat here again. We were not on the dining plan for this meal and the food here is not cheap. Service this time was slow. It took awhile after we were seated for our server to... More

Surprised to see negative reviews for this resturant. Our experience was quite different. We opted to use some of our dining plan allotments to eat here and it was definitely worth it. We were seated quickly and the staff was very kind. We had a show to catch so we were on a bit of a schedule and they made... More

My wife and I ate lunch here and it was a very relaxing meal. I had read from earlier reviews that the meal service could be slow. This may be because the Brown Derby is a signature restaurant, so if you want a quick meal, do not eat here. If you want to relax from the hustle and bustle of... More

The service was so slow it was painful. I wasn't aware the soft drinks were refillable as I sat with an empty glass for twenty minutes and it wasn't topped up. Then after I came back from the restroom to my surprise the glass was full. There was still appetiser dishes on the table during dessert. Talking of dessert we... More

We did the meal plan at Disney and this restaurant was one of our favorites. Because of the quality of food you use double points but it was worth it. Steak dinners were delicious. Seafood was excellent. Decor was spot on. I felt like we were in the original Brown Derby in Los Angeles. We really enjoyed our visit., make... More

We enjoyed our lunch here in September. It was a nice place for delicious sandwiches. It was so hot outside and this cool retreat was heavenly. The food was outstanding. You can't go wrong with the Grilled Wagyu Beef Burger or the Andouille-crusted chicken breast. The service was slow. But, once the food was received; the aggravation of slow service... More

I expected great food and service. The service was poor, everything took a long time and there were several mistakes in the charge on the bill. The pasta for one of the kids tasted really weird, we gave it back to the waiter. They still charged for it. Very expensive, very little food, not so good...would not go back.

We did the Brown Derby as our special night out dinner for family birthday celebration while attending WDW for 4 days. Service rock start 5 stars ! Super alert to all food sensitivities --- understood the menu and the options without hesitation. Food and service was fast --- even with a packed out we waited about 8 mins for appetizers... More

Went for lunch with my 18 month old grandson. He had fallen asleep in his stroller and the staff was very helpful. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. It was a very relaxing experience.
