Who says you can't go home again? If you grew up in middle America in the 1950s, just step inside. While I Love Lucy and The Donna Reed Show clips play on a television screen, you can feast on meat loaf, pot roast, or fried chicken, all served on a Formica tabletop. At $16, the meat loaf is one of the best inexpensive, filling dinners in any local theme park. Enjoy it with a malted-milk shake or root-beer float (or a bottle of wine). The place offers some fancier dishes, like the olive oil–poached salmon, which is a good choice for lighter eaters. If you're not feeling totally wholesome, go for Dad's Electric Lemonade (rum, vodka, blue curaçao, sweet-and-sour mix, and Sprite), which is worth every bit of the $10.75 price tag. Just like Mother, the menu admonishes, "Keep your elbows off the table."

The first sit down restaraunt we ate at after our arrival at WDW. Attempted to reserve at the Drive-In but was booked solid when we started looking for eating options at MGM. Reserved at the'50s Prime Time Café but still had a 45 minute wait. Was seated and instantly we were transported back to the white bread 1950's complete with tables, decor and appliances right out of that time. The service was very friendly and made up for the long wait.
Menu is very similar to Black-eyed Pea. If not on the meal plan this is a good deal for a family.
