A table-service restaurant themed to an American home in the 1950s, where the family (in other words, you and your group) gathers in the kitchen to watch TV as Mom serves lunch or dinner. The menu includes pork chops, fried chicken, meatloaf, pot roast, and a pot pie, but be warned. "Mom" (your waitress) has a mouth on her, and will put you in your place if she think's you're out of line. If you've been to Chicago's Ed Devebic's, you'll recognize the motif — sarcastically abusive servers and '50s schtick all around.

One of the best restaurants in all of Disney World. Love the 50's theme and the old school home cooking is outstanding... Meatloaf, Pot Roast and biscuits are amazing... - Eric Stankovitz

The food is mediocre but the theme and service (can) be good. - O T

A fun restaurant with a good time, depending on the server. The portions are large, so we either share or just eat appetizers. A great break in the day, don't forget to make reservations. 8/13 - Mitchell Botwin

SO much fun. One of my top two favorite theme park restaurants ever. I keep going back, and it's always great. - Heather Olson

Great food and a fun atmosphere. The only draw back is that it can be a crap shoot as to whether or not you'll get a fun server - Tom Rigg

Prime Time Cafe is probably the best, most reasonable full service joint at DHS. And the food is very good. Fried chicken, meatloaf, and chicken noodle soup are all recommended. Also, the desserts are great, especially the PB&J shake which is worth every calorie. - James Rao
