located at the Disney-MGM Studios
at Walt Disney World
. The atmosphere
is a largely successful attempt at evoking the stereotypical television family
of the 50s
). There are small televisions throughout the restaurant showing short clips from a variety
of 50s and early 60s TV show
Your server takes the role of a family member, such as Mom or Grandma or, for the younger ones, Sis, Brother, or some long-lost cousin. It's almost painful to watch sometimes, but at least they're cheerful about it. And why not? They get to tease and have fun with the guests; it's the guests who are forced to eat their vegetables!
The food is not served family-style, but it is, for the most part, good, and consists of standard home-cooked-type fare. And of course, you still get served with a bill, but sometimes reality takes a back seat, even to Disney magic.
