The food here is very good. This place use to be a blast. They would embarrass you in front of the kids (great memories for the family). For some reason, they stopped it.

We were able to get a last minute reservation for the Prime Time Cafe. It was so much fun! The pot roast was AMAZING! Our waiter, Mark, was so much fun. And...we share a birthday! January 11th.

The food was excellent but their was not one happy smiling cast member in the restaurant. Every cast member was grumpy and had an attitude. The attitude was what made my review a 3 star instead of a 5.

Good food, always fresh, hot and fast! Fun times to have your server scold you for having your elbows on the table! Try it at least once.

Yes they can, when I was in 50 Prime Time Cafe in November this year, there was a table of 16! Just book in advance to get the table as you got a large party.

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.
