I've always enjoyed the 50's Prime Time restaurant at Hollywood Studios, so my 17-year-old son and I made reservations for lunch there on our recent visit to WDW. It's not changed much (if at all) since we first visited, maybe fifteen years ago.
The decor is about the same, from the wallpapers to the furnishings and fixtures. Some of it was pretty familiar from when I was a kid.
The little TVs play B&W clips from old TV shows, e.g., The Donna Reed Show, The Real McCoys, Dennis the Menace, etc. Couldn't really hear the dialog, but with TVs all over the restaurant, playing the dialog loud enough to hear it from the next table would have been a bit much (even though the TVs are all in sync),
We both ordered the sampler platter, which had pot roast, meatloaf and fried chicken. It came with collard greens; I'd never had collard greens before, and they were quite tasty. When someone at the next table ordered the same thing, I noticed that the waitress called it "leftovers" when she brought it out - another fun touch.
Our waiter was pretty good; he told my son to set the table ("tables don't set themselves!") and did a pretty good job of walking the line between pseudo-uncle waiter.
Since this was our first sit-down meal of the trip, it struck me as a bit pricey, but after a few days at WDW you start to get used to how quickly the food bill adds up!
