The Hollywood Brown Derby

There is one place we always try to visit when in Walt Disney World – The Hollywood Brown Derby.

The décor is comprised mainly of ornate molding and dark wood. Illustrations of famous Hollywood patrons adorn the walls.

Our three-course prix-fixe menu began with: lobster bisque for mom, cobb salad for myself (they have one of the best I’ve ever had) and a crab cake for dad.

Next we chose our entrees. Mom and dad both went with the steak and I went with a noodle dish topped with coconut encrusted tofu.

Check out the presentation on that steak! It was delicious too… each bite melted in my mouth (because of course I had to try it… a few times).

My noodle bowl was so good. It was chock full of bokchoy, edamame, snow peas and mushrooms. The coconut encrusted tofu was out-of-this-world good.

We finished up the meal with the dessert course. Mom went with the decadent chocolate cake, dad went with the grapefruit cake (one of the Brown Derby’s specialties) and I went with a caramelized apple cheesecake.

Check out that slice of dried grapefruit! It was huge and super-thin.

The Hollywood Brown Derby did not disappoint. Not only were our meals delicious but it was apparent that a lot of attention went into the composition of each dish.

The prix-fixe menu set us back $60/person plus tax & gratuity. It included our choices for each course and non-alcoholic drinks. Not only that but it also afforded us priority seating for Disney’s Hollywood Studios Fireworks Show, Fantasmic. Unfortunately the show was rained out but we did get to enjoy it later in the week.

Do you have any spots you must-dine at when on vacation? Or do you like to try new things every time?

I like to think we did a combination of tried & true and new on this vacation. The Hollywood Brown Derby is one we’ve been to many times but we tried a new one that I can’t wait to tell you about in a future post!

  1. food looks awesome! Wish I knew about this place when I was in Disney last November! Although I did get to partake in the Epcot Food & Wine Fest so I can’t complain.
