From the service to the atmosphere, the Brown Derby was well worth the 2-meals from our dining plan. I was pleasantly surprised just how delicious was my entire meal. It would definitely compete with any fine dining restaurant anywhere. I highly recommend it...especially for an...More

Sadly rather than evoking a feeling of a bygone time it just felt dated. The food (overpriced) and service was ok but was ultimately disappointing.
