Locally owned and operated in downtown historic Hershey. We take pride in serving a variety of freshly prepared dishes including salads, wraps, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, seafood, risotto, pasta and more. Our cuisine consists of the finest ingredients paired with professional friendly staff and a clean slightly retro/modern, casual atmosphere, making it a great choice for any occasion. Our meals are prepared to order therefore we can accommodate special dietary needs. Seasonally our outdoor patio offers a great view of Hershey Park and Chocolate Avenue with the faint sounds of roller coaster enjoyment in the background.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "In a town where chocolate reigns supreme Chocolate Avenue Grill fits right in. Overall a great experience from menu options to the great service to the food! Entrees were refined and well priced (oh yea and they tasted great!!). While you will likely be full after appetizers and entrees, dessert is a nice way to end off the meal with a variety of chocolate and non-chocolate options. We split the Chocolate Avenue Brownie Sundae between three people and it was a perfect sweet ending to a great meal."

  • "Service was great, food was great only reason I didn't give it five stars is while sitting outside you are subject to possible train, truck noise. Otherwise, go!"

  • "We visited Hershey for a couple of days and wanted a nice restaraunt that was unique to The city. The menu had a wide variety of options and price points. The service was a bit slow but our waitress was fantastic! I will certainly dine here again!"

  • "upon entering, the host did not even make eye contact and acknowledge when I told him we had open table reservations......my burger was very blah.....seemed pre-cooked and I thought I was in a lower class Dennys or Eat n' Park........our waitress was upbeat and good."

  • "We looked forward to a return visit after exceptional experience earlier in the year. Most recent experience was not the same at all. Server was overwhelmed with large party and food came well under expectations. Steak had a significant taste almost like lighter fluid. I was a real disappointment. Not sure that we would care to return."

  • "We ate at The Chocolate Avenue Grill for my mom's 71st birthday. Our server was great, very friendly with good personality. Our food was somewhat slow to get to us; we we're told a big party had just gotten an order in before us. (It happens) The wine list was not great but adequate. The Almond Encrusted Flounder was delicious! (It was about $18. The reviewer that claimed this restaurant is expensive should go back to McDonald's) My mother enjoyed the lasagne. I'd recommend The Chocolate Avenue Grilll and plan to return someday."

  • "Food was very pricey and not good. We had the "special" and tasted like it had been in a microwave. Expected a lot more from all the reviews. Maybe we just had a bad experience."

  • "We enjoyed our eating experience. Reason of choice because of rating on tripadvisor dot com. Want more reason, check there, they will give you all reasons as to why this restaurant rated 2 out of 61 in the city."

  • "The crab cakes, though mostly crab meat, were bland very little flavor. The lava cake had no lava, just a blob of fudge on top. And not served with ice cream."

  • "The food was fantastic. We share the Noah Sandwich and a tasty salad. Plenty for both of us. We sat at a table by the windows by the parking lot. They were way to close together. You couldn't move. I got up to go to the restroom and had trouble getting by the person sitting next to me even though no one was at the next table. One less table in that section would be great."

  • "Food was yummy and reasonably priced, but the service was slow (we are used to New York City pace), and our drinks had very little alcohol. We will probably go somewhere else to eat in the future."

  • "This was my first time there. There were 4 at our table. We felt there was too much lemon on the resoto. The rockfish was over seasoned as were the scallops. The service was good. The bathroom for the men was unable to deal with the crowd. The floor around the staff area was very slippery and probably needed washed better. The overall experience was fair. I also felt things were overpriced."

  • "My husband and I dine at the Chocolate Avenue Grill several times during the season that the patio is open. It never disappoints. The outdoor dining area has a great view of Hershey, and we love the ambiance of the patio. The food is always excellent, and the seasonal drink selections are fun. We definitely recommend."

  • "Dined at Choc. Ave Grill for lunch on May 1st. There were four of us and we sat out on the patio. The seating even without the cushions was comfortable. The cushions were soaked from the rain storms earlier in the week. The service was good. We could have used drink refills but that was the only downside to our experience. The food was very delicious. I had the burger with bacon and balsamic carnelized onions. Two of the diners had the Pittsburgh Salad and there special requests were honored. It was a very large salad with lots of other veggies too. The fourth diner had the brisket sandwich, which was good too. The French fries were delicious and the portions were generous. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Good food. Excellent kid menu. Food a little pricey for the physical appearance of the place. Seems like the food which is very good with an interesting menu should be served in a place that is more refined. Make a reservation as it was very crowded when we arrived"

  • "This was our second visit and everything was absolutely amazing once again! An absolute must are the baby bucos for an appetizer. The lemon berry marscopone cake for dessert was so good! Plus you get a view of the roller coasters at Hershey, what more could you ask for?"

  • "My friend and I went to Chocolate Avenue Grill and were very happy with our food. It was delicious and expertly presented. The evening was quite enjoyable and they never made us feel that we were being rushed to make room for other diners. We both appreciated this as we were having a wonderful discussion. As well, they checked frequently to make sure we were still happy...just a great place!!"

  • "We drove to Hershey. Pa 2 hrs for an event and decided to have lunch at The Chocolate Ave Grill. When we arrived, it was packed & had a lot of people waiting for tables. Luckily, I had the foresight to make a reservation! I to;d the host we had a reservation & we were immediately taken to our table-the only table available in the place! Our server was very personable & pleasant. The food was delicious. Two of our party had martinis & thought they could have been colder & one of them had a lot of olive juice in it. (She did not order a dirty martini) The was the only slightly "off" thing about our experience. Wonder ful food & service. I would recommend this restaurant."

  • "Always enjoy the Grill for lunch or dinner. No bar per se but alcoholic beverages are served. Large portions, in fact, too large like in most restaurants today. I took half my salad home -- way too much after a cup of yummy butternut squash soup. Not a lot of ambience but pleasant. We'll keep going back."
