One thing that is lacking at Hollywood Studios is dining options. There are very few table service restaurants and you may find yourself out of luck if you show up at dinner time without a reservation. If you are looking for a great table service restaurant in Hollywood Studios, make a reservation at 50’s Prime Time Cafe. I promise that you will leave the restaurant with a fully belly and a smile on your face!
50’s Prime TIme Cafe at Hollywood Studios takes you back in time. As soon as you walk in the restaurant, you will feel like you have arrived at someone’s home in the 1950’s where everyone is in character! Once you check in, you will be told to wait in living room or bar until mom calls you to dinner.
The waiting area looks just like a typical 1950’s living room with black & white TV and shag carpet. Be ready when mom calls you to dinner because you don’t want to be late!
Each table in this restaurant makes you feel like you are eating in someone’s kitchen. You will find kitchen appliances, decorative wall paper, a countertop and a small black and white TV. You will definitely want to mind your manners because the waitresses are no joke! They will call you out quickly if you mumble or if you put your elbows on the table! Not to worry, though, it is all in good fun.
The menu at 50’s Prime Time Cafe is limited to “Home Cooking.” You’ll find all the family favorites: Grandma’s Chicken Pot Pie, Cousin Megan’s Traditional Meatloaf, Mom’s Old-fashioned Pot Roast and more! There is even a blue plate special! Kids menu is really good too with many of the same selections is smaller portions.
While the menu is pretty limited (think traditional Americana), it certainly is hardy and tasty! Our favorites are the Fried Chicken, Pot Roast (pictured) and Crab Cakes.
Be sure to leave room for dessert. Instead of a traditional paper menu, you will be handed a 50’s View Finder. Thumb through the delicious options like Dad’s Favorite Chocolate-Peanut Butter Layered Cake or Warm Apple Crisp À la Mode.
If the traditional dessert options don’t do it for you, you can always get a Milk Shake. The main dessert that 50’s Prime Time Cafe is known for is the Peanut Butter and Jelly Milk Shake! Talk about yummy! They are big enough to split, so don’t feel like you need to order more than one.
Price-wise, 50’s Prime Time Cafe is a fairly good value. Like all Disney restaurants, portions are pretty large. What you really pay for here is the experience and on that, it delivers!
