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.

Food selection was very good. Everything was fresh and tasty. Service was very attentive and fast. Prices tended to be a little high, but this a tourist area. Busy location in the heart of everything. As a result parking might be difficult. Overall very enjoyable.

Excellent selection of menu items. Dinner specials always great. Fresh ingredients used and always cooked to perfection. Been going here for 10 years and never had a bad meal. Outdoor seating available. Highly recommend reservations. Gets very busy.

Great food and great service. Menu offers a great variety to fit any budget. Ambiance appears like a renovated fast-food restaurant. Well kept and clean but oddly laid out. Read that they are renovating in Fall 2019 so that may improve the overall look.

We were greeted warmly when we arrived. We were seated at a table between the back area and the front area. Our server Naomi was very attentive. We started with the garlic bread and calamari which were delicious but we also ordered the meatballs were unfortunately not very good. They were reheated which was obvious, and not freshly made. They were noticeably hard and lacking in flavor. I would highly recommend that this eatery explore another meatball recipe and make them fresh on a daily basis. We also ordered the Delmonico steak, the traditional burger and the lobster risotto which were all fantastic. Stuffed as we were, we then ordered the key lime pie, the brownie sundae, and the Oreo cheesecake which were also phenomenal. Overall, it was a very nice dinner with great tasting food. The ambiance needs some improvement as well as the meatball appetizer, therefore I gave it a 4/5.

Unique menu with lots of options! Appropriate for anyone - including kids. We went there around 8:30 on a Thursday night and it was still pretty crowded. We are from out of town and would recommend this restaurant.

I did some research and so glad I made a reservation! By the time we started down the wait was up to 45 minutes and with good reason. The staff was incredible, especially our server. The food was even more impressive, I'll go back every time I'm near Hershey!

A huge disappointment. The front and back of the house were in disarray. The food was mediocre at best. The waitress did her best to accommodate but she had no chance with the kitchen being out of sync.

While we were seated very quickly, service was extremely slow. Two people in our party ordered chicken dishes and the chicken was rubbery and very undercooked. The manager replaced and refunded one of the meals. Burgers are not grilled, but rather fried or cooked on a griddle, leaving the end result extremely greasy and fatty. When you pay, you do so on an iPad while the waitress/waiter waits for you. You don’t have an option to give anything other than 18, 20, or 22% for a tip. We found that to be very presumptuous.
Women’s bathrooms was dirty and one toilet was overflowing. For the prices they charge, go elsewhere.

I got fish and French fries. Had I realized you sold sweet potato fries I would've switched them out BUT the spicy fries were amazing none the less and I'm not a fry lover. The fish was wonderful. Both of my friends got salads they loved also. Prices here are a wee bit on the steep side. (For the dinners) We sat outside which was fun. Very nice place. My first time there.

Waitress was very polite. Food was delicious. Portions were large. I’m a very picky eater. Shrimp and corn soup was very good. Chicken Alfredo, spaghetti and meatballs, and chicken Marsala were all delicious. Very flavorful. I would definitely go back again and try something new.

A very nice dining experience! Great location right in the heart of the downtown Hershey area w/ the kiss streetlamps. Our server was very nice and helpful. The food was delicious however the options were limited. There were very few vegan and non-dairy options. They didn't even have almond milk for my coffee. But other than that, it was great and everyone really enjoyed their food and the whole experience!
