Undoubtedly, one of the highlights of a Walt Disney World vacation is the food.
Of course, EPCOT is widely known for its culinary delights. Animal Kingdom is a sleeper foodie park, at least in my humble opinion. Magic Kingdom offers a great selection of food and dining options, too.
But what about Hollywood Studios?
With two major park expansions in recent years, Hollywood Studios has become home to several truly excellent new dining options. So, let’s take a look at the best restaurants in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

1. The Hollywood Brown Derby
This signature table service restaurant offers guests a chance to dine in a replica of the famous Brown Derby.
The original restaurant is a symbol of the Golden Age of Hollywood glamour. The restaurant is known for its famous Cobb Salad and Greenlight the Grapefruit Cake.
2. 50’s Prime Time Café
Prepare to be on your best behavior at this retro table service restaurant.
The servers will absolutely roast guests with the audacity to put their elbows on the table or have their phones out. The menu is full of classic comfort foods like Aunt Liz’s Golden Fried Chicken and Mom’s Old-fashioned Beef Pot Roast.
Note: While this restaurant has a similarly themed lounge, Tune-in Lounge only serves beverages. The menu does not include any food items.
3. Docking Bay 7
This quick service restaurant goes way beyond your basic burgers and fries typical of theme park fare.
Notably, the menu items are unique and highly themed. As a result, you’ll likely need to read the detailed description to understand what you’re ordering.
I love the Roasted Endorian Chicken Salad and the Peka Tuna Poke Bowl. Both are light and refreshing yet packed with protein. Specifically, it’s the perfect combination to keep you fueled at a theme park without weighing you down.
And also, my kids love the Fried Chicken Tip Yip Youngling Meal. It’s served with macaroni and cheese plus roasted veggies.
Can you mobile order at Docking Bay 7?
Yes, the good news is you can place a mobile order at Docking Bay 7. In fact, this popular quick service restaurant was designed with mobile ordering in mind.
Unlike many other quick service restaurants, Docking Bay 7 opened after mobile ordering was already a thing. Whereas other locations had to be retrofitted to accommodate this service model, Docking Bay 7 was set up for it from day one.
Given the detailed menu and popularity of the restaurant, I would strongly recommend mobile ordering.
4. Ronto Roasters
Another excellent dining option for Star Wars fans, Ronto Roasters is open for breakfast and lunch.
The staple item on their menu is the Ronto Wrap. The morning wrap comes with eggs, cheese and breakfast sausage wrapped in warm pita bread. The lunch/dinner version has grilled pork sausage, tangy slaw and peppercorn sauce.
That said, one of my all-time favorite Disney breakfast items is the Rising Moon Overnight Oats. It is beautiful, delicious and also filling.
5. Woody’s Lunch Box
This is one of Hollywood Studios’ best quick service restaurants for picky eaters. In the morning, they serve breakfast bowls which consist of potato barrels topped with scrambled eggs and brisket gravy.
Later, on the lunch and dinner menu, you’ll find a selection of sandwiches. These include grilled cheese, smoked turkey, BBQ brisket melt or chicken salad.
Another unique offering is the Totchos (think “tot nachos”). It’s essentially a bed of potato barrels covered with chili, cheese and other garnishes. There’s a plant-based version, too.
Woody’s Lunch Box is also known for its Lunch Box Tarts. These gourmet Pop-Tarts come in flavors like chocolate hazelnut or raspberry.
6. Hollywood & Vine
Located near the park entrance, Hollywood & Vine offers a buffet-style character dining experience.
During breakfast hours, guests will have a chance to meet some of their favorite Disney Junior characters. For lunch and dinner, Minnie and friends like Mickey, Goofy and Pluto will also greet guests at their tables.
7. The Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge
Sharing a kitchen with the primary restaurant, this lounge offers a selection of menu items including the Cobb Salad, BLT sliders, shrimp cocktail and a charcuterie board.
8. Roundup Rodeo BBQ
This western-themed table service restaurant is the newest addition to Hollywood Studios. In keeping with the rest of Toy Story Land, the dining room is filled with gigantic vintage toys.
The family-style menu starts with bread service and a selection of salads.
Then, you’ll choose between a platter of traditional BBQ favorites like ribs and brisket or a plant-based trio of items like the Combat Carloflower. You’ll also choose from a selection of sides for the table and desserts.
9. Fairfax Fare
This is one of three quick service restaurants clustered together at the end of Sunset Boulevard near the Tower of Terror.
I’m a fan of this area when touring the parks with large groups. Certainly, between the three restaurants, there will be something for everyone.
Plus, they all offer mobile ordering so you can skip the line and grab a table in the shady outdoor dining area.
10. Catalina Eddie’s
For the pizza lovers in your group, Catalina Eddie’s is a great choice. In addition to personal-sized cheese or pepperoni pizza, they have breadsticks served with marinara and a Caesar salad with chicken.
11. Rosie’s All-American Café
Rosie’s serves theme park staples like hot dogs, burgers and chicken nuggets with French fries. They also offer a plant-based lobster roll.
12. Dockside Diner
When you really want a hot dog, check out Dockside Diner in Echo Lake.
In addition to classic hot dogs, they serve pretzel dogs, a California BLTA Dog and a Bacon Mac & Cheese Hot Dog. Finish it off with a Banana Split Parfait.
Muppet fans will delight in this quick service pizzeria.
In addition to various pizzas, they also offer hot submarine sandwiches and fresh Italian-inspired salads.
14. Backlot Express
You’ll find this quick service restaurant near Star Tours. Because of its location, you’ll find several nods to Star Wars on the dessert menu.
Most notably, the Backlot Express is the home of the Wookiee Cookie. In addition, they have a dangerously-named chocolate dessert: the Darth Vader Chocolate Cupcake.
15. ABC Commissary
Centrally located and often overlooked, this quick-service restaurant has an expansive indoor dining area. It’s a great place to sit and enjoy some air conditioning over lunch or dinner.
Menu highlights include shrimp tacos, the Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich and the Mediterranean Salad.
16. Oga’s Cantina
Although known for its wide variety of Star Wars-themed beverages, Oga’s Cantina also has a snack menu. Offerings include the Happabore Sampler, which is a shareable charcuterie board.
It is sometimes possible to join a walk-up list for Oga’s Cantina. However, advanced dining reservations are strongly recommended for Star Wars fans who really want to visit Oga’s. That being said, it offers more of a snack than a whole meal.
Fortunately, Disney recently updated their dining reservation cancellation policy. Guests can now cancel without penalty up to three hours before the reservation.
As a result, more last-minute, same-day reservations are showing up in the My Disney Experience app.
17. Sci-Fi Dine-in Theater Restaurant
At this unique table service restaurant, guests can watch classic science fiction movie clips.
Enjoy a drive-in style meal from the comfort of the front or back seats of a vintage car. Popular menu items include the Drive-in BBQ Burger and the Pan-Seared Salmon Pasta.
18. Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano
This table service restaurant serves classic Italian favorites like Oven-baked Chicken alla Parmigiana and Spaghetti and Meatballs.
19. Kat Saka’s Kettle
You’ll find this snack spot near Ronto Roasters in the Black Spire market.
They also recently added a popular specialty beverage you may have seen making the rounds on social media. The Cold Brew Black Caf is Joffrey’s cold brew coffee with sweet cream cheese topping sprinkled with chocolate cereal puffs.
What is the name of the popcorn in Galaxy’s Edge?
Kat Saka’s Kettle is your go-to for specialty popcorn in Galaxy’s Edge. Their menu offers Buttered Blue Grains, basically just classic Disney World popcorn with a dusting of blue coloring.
For those with more adventurous taste buds, they also have an Outpost Mix popcorn. It’s a blend of colorful popcorn that is both sweet and spicy. The purple-coated kernels are sweet and the red-coated ones are spicy.
20. Milk Stand
Choose between Blue Milk or Green Milk at Milk Stand in Galaxy’s Edge or try both!
21. Trolley Car Café
Located near the park entrance, this coffee shop is Hollywood Studios’ Starbucks in disguise. Obviously, guests will find familiar favorite craft beverages, pastries and breakfast sandwiches on the menu.
However, one item unique to this location is the Carrot Cake Whoopie Pie. Formerly known as the Carrot Cake Cookie, this is a long-beloved snack of Disney fans.
22. Baseline Tap House
This lounge offers an impressive selection of craft beer, hard cider, wine and cocktails. Their food menu includes small plates like spiced almonds, a Bavarian pretzel and also a cheese plate.
