Wonderful “old school” find fining restaurant with fantastic service. I’ve been here many times and The Derby never dissapoints. Great prime rib and perfectly cooked salmon. Best cheesecake anywhere for dessert. Highly recommended.

The Derby has great ambience and outstanding food. All the steaks that were consumed that night were able to be cut with a fork. The wine selection is also fantastic. It is a bit pricey but well worth the money.

The dining room had little children running between tables so we asked to sit in the bar. We were told that the parents were "good customers." Okay. Service in the bar was very slow and the food - when it came - was disappointing. I...More
