Hollywood Brown Derby

Located on Hollywood Blvd. This full-sevice restaurant is a replica of the famous one in Los Angeles. Bring your LA wallet too, this place isn't cheap. While we wish there was, there isn't a bar inside where you can sit and order a drink or food.

Excellent, unique entrees - not a place for picky eaters. The Cobb Salad is said to have been invented at the LA location. View Hollywood Brown Derby's Wine Menu, Lunch/Dinner Menu, Dessert Menu & Tea Menu.

Atmosphere
 
Anywhere else you'd be drastically underdressed in your shorts & flip flops but not here, you're in a theme park. Very classic, upscale decor. Dark wood tables & white walls adorned with drawings of celebrities. Need a dumb fact while you dine? The Cobb Salad was invented at the original Brown Derby in Hollywood.

The Hollywood Brown Derby Restaurant has added a new Lounge section. It's first-come, first-served, with no reservations. Grab a table outside on the patio or from a small section of tables inside the lobby.

There's a walk-up bar in the outdoor area where you can order these fine cocktails, wine or beer to go. The walk-up bar is only able to serve what is on the lounge menu, however, if you get a table, there's no reason you wouldn't be able to order a drink from the standard menu.

Atmosphere 
Just what this park needed - a classy little spot to grab a fancy cocktail & appetizer while enjoying the afternoon. Outside on the patio there's tables with umbrellas and high-tops for seating from 2-5 people. The inside area has a few of their usual wooden tables and chairs. The outside has a much better view and is more fun to kick back and people watch from over the inside area, but once summer rolls around again, we think that outside patio might get very empty.
 
The Lounge menu is likely to change as they adjust to this new addition. We were told if we wanted an item from the regular menu it would be available - we even saw the fanboy favorite Grapefruit Cake pass by on a tray - and it's not on the Lounge menu. If you wanted a cocktail from the regular menu you should be able to order that as well.

We very much like that this is first-come, no reservations. We all know how hard it is to get into a popular restaurant at Disney on a whim. Now you can get in as soon as someone leaves their table. 

We are very happy with this new addition to the park. Heck, it might make us come here more often! File this lounge addition under "why didn't they do this earlier"?

Review
Citizens Take Flight is a tasting of their 3 Margaritas: "Bucky Greenhorn Derby", "Melvin Macheezmo Mango" and "Ready Freddy Fiddlesticks Pomegranate". All are named after Hollywood Studios' Street Performers - the Citizens of Hollywood. These are all handmade, high quality margaritas.

Our favorite 2 are the Classic Lime and the Mango. Light, crisp and refreshing without any heavy artificial flavors. Our least favorite is the Pomegranate, only because of its rather syrupy thick pomegranate flavor - but it's still quite tasty. The glasses are pretty decently sized which makes this a reasonable value for $11.25, plus you get the 3 different flavors. If you love margaritas or just want to try a few new flavors, give this one a try.

We also ordered the Artisanal Cheeses and Charcuterie Board for Two as we're suckers for a fine cheeses and meats. This is one of the most exquisite, diverse and high quality Charcuterie Boards we've ever eaten - anywhere in Orlando. This isn't a dish for non-adventurous eaters. The "faux gras" and duck rillette are not for newbies, but delicious for those willing to take a chance. If you like this kind of funky flavored cheeses and meats like us, we highly recommend it, in fact, we can't wait to order it again.

We're not big fans of spending big bucks on pasta, but this place is slightly more resonable than Tutto Italia in Epcot. View Mama Melrose's Dinner Menu and Dessert Menu.

Atmosphere
 
It has a cheesy, old-world Italian look to the dining room. A fun vibe here, nothing stuffy & fancy, but don't expect to have a seat at the bar for a cocktail and appetizer - it's dining seating only here.

Just Ok

Food
 
American fare here, your typical burgers, chicken, steak etc. Let's face it, you don't eat here for the food (it's just ok) you're here for the atmosphere - which is awesome. View the Sci-Fi Dine In's Lunch/Dinner Menu and Dessert Menu.

Atmosphere
 
For those of us who remember going to drive-in movies, this will bring back memories. You sit in car-shaped tables, with everyone facing forward so you can see the movie. It's dark, with cheesy monster movies playing on screen. If you're lucky, your server might even be sportin' roller skates! A fun place that you won't soon forget. There is a car table out in front of the restaurant entrance for photo-ops as well.

Review 
We were able to get a walk-up reservation one afternoon and decided to grab a couple Cosmic Concoctions and split an appetizer. After hearing so many glowing reviews of the Space Monkey shake, we knew that was one we had to try. A Marsha's Martian cocktail and an order of Buffalo Potato Skins filled the rest of our order. 

Unfortunately, these "Cosmic Concoctions" tasted more like they came out of your mother's kitchen. While tasty, they were lacking any hint of the specialty liqueurs that is supposed to be included. The Space Monkey is simply a chocolate shake with an essence de banana that would be a great deal for less than $9.50, but for that price it's definitely not out-of-this-universe worthy (nor is it pleasing any monkeys). The Marsha's Martian is an equal let-down in the alcohol department. Get a couple NA kid's vanilla & chocolate shakes and mix them yourself and you'll have this "cocktail" for a significantly better deal. Now don't get us wrong - they are delicious shakes, but not worth the nearly $10 price tag. (And yes, they do come with glow cubes.) 

When you think of a typical order of potato skins, how many skins do you picture? 6? At least 4, right? Well, their Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins arrived with a total of 3 - yes, that's right, 3 potato skins for ten bucks! (Where did the other potato half go?) Who's seen a measly 3 skins on an order before? Once we got past the odd number, the dish was unfortunately boring and bland. The redeeming factor is the tangy dribble of chunky blue cheese dressing that was on top, though it could've used a lot more. On the bright side, the three sticks of celery were nice and fresh!
