Dinner for six last night. Our waiter Vern was excellent. Attentive and professional! The meats were awesome, but the scampi was over cooked. Classic steakhouse.

Wonderful “old school” find fining restaurant with fantastic service. I’ve been here many times and The Derby never dissapoints. Great prime rib and perfectly cooked salmon. Best cheesecake anywhere for dessert. Highly recommended.
