We went to lunch here while visiting the park. It was such a disappointment in both service and food. We had a very inattentive waiter and mediocre food. I would not recommend this restaurant as there are better alternative eating places.

Atmosphere: lots of brown wood paneling. Clean, neat, somewhat vaguely period like the Golden Age of Hollywood. Tons of portraits of celebrities (I didn't take the time to view them close up, sorry.) Theming: nostalgically inspired by and an homage to a Brown Derby restaurant...More

No, there is no dress code. Whatever you are wearing in the park is appropriate to wear in the restaurant. It may seem weird to wear shorts and a t-shirt to a restaurant, but rest assured, that everyone else in there will... More

Great work kids-it's Disney. I think they only have a service bar inside. They do have a bar on the surrounding porch with an abbreviated menu, but you can order from the main menu if you ask.
