The Derby has been around for a very long time and they still pack people in on a nightly basis. I have not been there for almost five years but that has now been corrected. The Derby Ground Steak is their signature entrée and for good reason. It is just plain delicious. Add some creamed corn and rice pilaf and you've got a fantastic meal. And the service? Excellent! I wandered in without a reservation and got lucky. I strongly suggest making reservations. While the Derby is not cheap, it is well worth every penny.

Went to a rehearsal and out-of-towners dinner here the night prior to a family wedding. The food was beautifully prepared and the fact that were about 30 people at the table didn't seem to phase the waitstaff at all. No mix-ups, no hurry, no errors - complete pros and I approve! Complimentary valet parking and a friendly and gracious hostess rounded out the evening. The bread pudding is not to be missed for dessert and the baked Alaska was thrillingly presented and flambeed table-side. All in all a fun and superior upscale evening.

This wonderful establishment has been around for many years. Many film stars from years past frequented The Derby. There is horse racing memorabilia tracing the history of this sport. The shrimp and crab salads are exquisite. There is also a full bar which serves cocktails, wine and other beverages. There is valet and street parking.

We went for lunch, which has its own menu, so that's all I can comment on. First, complimentary valet parking. Then you walk into the waiting area which is full of historic horse racing memorabilia. The booths are that tufted, old, red leather, quite comfortable. Varied menu of tasty dishes. I had the ground sirloin for $17. It came with french fries and really wonderful, garlicky broccoli, and cheese toast. I ordered the side French Onion Soup for $5. My friend had the Prime Rib French DIp for $19. It came with garlic mashed potatoes. We looked at the dessert menu, and would have ordered because it was divine, but we were too full. It's nice to go to a restaurant where the servers are a little older and wiser.
