We loved our food at the 50's Prime Time Cafe, but i was disappointed that there were none of the theatrics that we were excited to experience. Our server was very nice, but she was just a server, not our "mom" like we were expecting....More

Really enjoyed this retro style diner, it was fun in design and food was really good, even if there was loads of it. The serving staff were fun and this added to the ambiance of the place.

Hollywood Studios may be experiencing a period of change with the Star Wars area being built, BUT 50s Prime Time Cafe is worth a trip there if for no other reason than to eat some old fashioned home cooked food and enjoy an amazing milkshake....More

If I personally had to choose, I'd choose Teppan Edo. Mostly because I've never been there and would like to try something different. The point is, I HAVE been to the 50s Prime Time - several times - and it's always been... More

50's Prime Time Café serves classic American comfort food in a TV-themed setting. The restaurant sits across from Echo Lake in Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park.The 50's Prime Time Café menu includes family favorites like golden fried chicken, traditional meatloaf and pot roast, cooked the way Mom used to make it—that is, if Mom were a 1950s sitcom star.Be welcomed into Mom's family and feel at home in her kitchenette. But Mom expects you to mind your manners, so don't be surprised if she tells you to keep your elbows off the table. It's all part of the old-fashioned fun and gentle ribbing that's served up along with the food.TV Tables and Tune-In LoungeFor a special treat at 50's Prime Time Café, grab a "TV Table" that seats up to 4 diners and has a television next to the table that broadcasts clips from popular prime time sitcoms circa 1955 including "Father Knows Best" and the original "Mickey Mouse Club."Bop into 50's Prime Time Café for lunch or dinner. Cocktails, wines by the glass and frosty beers are available from Mom for Guests 21 years of age and older, or relax in the Tune-In Lounge full-service bar and sip Dad's Electric Lemonade or Grandma's Picnic Punch.From the mid-50s knick-knacks and memorabilia that decorate this restaurant to the dessert menu displayed through viewfinder toys, nostalgia is the main ingredient at 50's Prime Time Café.
