WDW Brown Derby vs. NY Brown Derby

Me at WDW Brown Derby this past November

I've had the pleasure of dining at both Brown Derby restaurants. This past Month I was in Albany,NY to discover the restaurant was next to our hotel! It is much smaller than the wdw restaurant but still very nice. The waiter overheard my hubby& I guessing who was on the wall so he dropped off a chart for the wall.

WDW PeachTree is AMAZING!
I remembered an amazing peach drink I had at the WDW B.D. & was disappointed that the NY one didn't have it so we looked up the drink recipe & gave it to the waiter & I had it with no problems. It is called a Peachtree. If you like peach drinks you will LOVE this one! The one at WDW is huge & so worth it. By far my favorite alcohol drink anywhere on the planet!

The food is different but both are excellent. I had the filet mignon at both restaurants. The NY one was encrusted on the sides & had blue cheese on the top while the wdw one was cooked in a wine sauce. Both very good but I think the wdw wins by a hair. The service was good in NY but our waiter at WDW was by far superior. He was very attentive and very professional & funny. We didn't see our waiter too much in NY but I think he might have been only one of two waiters there. I was disappointed w/ the creme brulee @ NY. It had little to no vanilla flavor but the strawberry sauce on the plate as a garnish was amazing.               I didn't have dessert at the WDW one to compare. My hubby got tea in NY and it was quite a production! HA. All in all both places are great but WDW is slightly better. If you cannot make it to the FL one the NY one is a great alternative!

  1. Oh how I dislike these industrial tea pots. How difficult is it to have a proper tea pot on a beautifully layed out table.
    We absolutely love the service, embience and, of course, the food and drinks at BD at Hollywood Studios.
    Love your report,
