The Hollywood Brown Derby is the only Signature Restaurant in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It’s high prices, even during the lunch meals (only one lunch/dinner menu) means that you can usually get reservations on short notice. They carry forward some of the Hollywood Brown Derby’s signature items such as the Cobb Salad and Grapefruit cake on a varied menu that includes seafood, duck, chicken, pork, beef, and vegetarian options .

Only WDWorld Overall Rating: 3.5 (out of 5)


Snapshot:
The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant is the best Hollywood Studios’ Table Service Restaurant to check out. It gives a truly Disney Dining Experience that you won’t get at home. The atmosphere is fun, as you dine in special cars and get to watch clips from Sci-Fi Movies and 50’s era commercials. You may even recognize some famous actors in their not so famous roles. The food is good, but not the reason to dine here.
