Disney World's Hollywood Brown Derby, located in The Hollywood Studios theme park, is based on the Original Brown Derby, in Hollywood.

Whether you're dining outside or inside, you get the feel of what it was like at the Original Brown Derby. I prefer inside dining myself (you know, the air conditioning, etc.), where I can look around at all the caricatures on the wall, the class and ambiance of the 1920s and 30s, when the stars of that era frequented the restaurant.

Cindy and I first dined there in December of 2008. Being almost two years ago, I can't remember what appetizers we had, or what my entree was, but Cindy is positive that she had the Spit-roasted Half Chicken.

I do remember that I tried the Grapefruit Cake for dessert. It is a Brown Derby Original, and although it was decent, I can say I was overwhelmed with delight over it.

Overall, our experience at The Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant was really nice. Cindy gave it a 5-star rating, and I gave it a 4-star rating. We're going again this July (2010), and I'll put an update of that experience here then.

UPDATED July 5, 2010

First off, I have to change my rating after this visit, to a 5-star rating...

Ti Ti At The Hollwood Brown Derby  Takes A Moment To Pose With My Mom This visit was AWESOME... Our group had a wonderful time, and our server, Ti Ti (pronounced tee-tee) was great! She was extremely professional in her duties, but oh, so very socialable. There wasn't a dull moment around the table when she was there, and she was a wealth of knowledge on the history of The Brown Derby.

There were six of us this time around, and all of us agreed that we had a very nice experience, and this time around, I, for one, really enjoyed my food.

Since I'm writing this the night I had the food, I can remember what I had this time. :-)

For the appetizer, I had the Cremini Mushroom Chevre Tortelloni with Tomato-Fennel Sauce and Shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano, and it was just as Ti Ti described... Delicious!

I had their signature Char-grilled Filet of Beef..., but this time I really enjoyed it. I don't remember enjoying it that much in 2008, which was the last time I went.

I didn't ask if there was a new chef, so that may have been the reason, but the food was definitely much better this time around.

My Dessert was a very tasty Warm Seasonal Fruit Cobbler with Creme Fraiche and Orange Blossom Honey.

Since the group was all adults, I decided to treat us all to a Grand Marnier Flight, and it was appreciated. I don't drink much at all, and neither did anyone else, so this was truly a different experience.
