Turn back the clock to the era of the 50’s… when meals revolved around family and Mom’s home cooking. 50’s Prime Time Café at Hollywood Studios… rated by Eater as “The Single Best Restaurant at Disney World”… offers throwback comfort food in a setting of yesteryear.

Step inside this nostalgic eatery and enter a 1950’s sitcom. Think… “I Love Lucy”“Father Knows Best”“Leave It to Beaver”. Disney has paid meticulous attention to every detail in this authentic vintage restaurant.

Retro abounds here… Formica tables, linoleum floors, kitschy decor. Yet the star at each table is the beloved black & white TV. TV’s were a novelty back in the 50’s and families watched TV together… especially at dinnertime.

Mom’s home cooking is the theme here… hearty comfort food that is also surprisingly tasty.
