Steakhouse
The Derby is more than a restaurant. Established in 1922, it has been family owned and operated since 1951. It is a grand museum showcasing some of horse racing’s greatest moments. Diners are invited to take a break from the rush of modern life and travel back to the time of George Woolf, Seabiscuit, and relive the excitement of “The Race of the Century”. We excel in offering the best meat and fresh seafood hand selected by our longtime executive chef that would delight even the most discriminating of taste. Some of the menu highlights include the Bacon Wrapped Filet, Delmonico New York, Prime Rib and Shrimp Scampi. We offer a wide selection of wines by the bottle and by the glass. Relax and enjoy a delicious meal in one of our iconic red leather booths, take in a beautiful evening on our terrace, or watch a sporting event in our bar and lounge. Dining at The Derby can only be compared to the feeling of holding the winning ticket when you smile and know that you made the right choice!

    The Derby is a tradition and always sets a high bar. Service was great and food was delivered promptly. Waitress was very busy covering more tables than she should have but was able to handle it fairly well. Only a slight wait for desert and bill when finished. For a change I ordered the rack of lamb instead of the prime rib or rib eye. Big mistake. The rack of lamb was smothered with a sauce that killed the taste of the lamb.

    Tremendous old school vibe and the food was just as good. Will make this a staple when visiting Santa Anita.

    I heard they were moving and had to visit before they did. There's just so much nostalgia here. I love the ambiance. I haven't been in over 20 years and the food did not disappoint! From the garlic cheese toast, the drinks to our main course ... everything was fantastic. I ordered the bacon wrapped filet and my husband ordered the bone in ribeye. Both were cooked and seasoned to perfection. Not sure when they are moving as I forgot to ask, but I'm glad we got to stop in just to check out the memorabilia. I hope they don't change too much in their new location!!

    The server was kind and very attentive. I made a reservation and we got seated within five minutes. Food and drinks were delicious. About $120 per person with tax and tip and no appetizers.

    I don’t typically leave a review but felt compelled to do so today. We had a lovely meal with excellent service. My husband had the boneless ribeye and I had the prime rib. Cooked perfectly at medium rare. We have dined here many times. Always yummy. Today Bobby, our server made our dining experience enjoyable. He made our Easter holiday special. I hope he knows his nice personality truly makes his customers happy. Thanks Bobby
