No review ! Business is closed evidently. Went on Friday 3-30-18 around 6:30 . Doors all locked , no lights on inside , neon open sign not lit up . Sooo disappointed ! Used to enjoy going almost every weekend before it changed ownership.

It's great to have the Brown Derby back. The new derby's been updated. The food is fantastic and price reasonably. They do have a daily happy hour with drink and appetizer specials.

So happy they have reopened. My husband truly enjoyed his crab imperial stuffed lobster tail. I enjoyed my chicken parm. The staff was very attentive. Our water glasses were never empty.

Visited for first time. Plenty of parking in the back lot. Wasn't sure what to expect, as place appears small from the front. But plenty of room inside. Restaurant was full with a number of families with young kids. Started out eating as a couple,...More
