First time there and I loved it. My friend and I came from opposite directions and met there before going to Hershey Theatre.
The food was great and we were able to take our time before the show.
Friendly, helpful staff directed us to the Theatre which is easy to find two blocks away. We will definitely set this as our pre-theatre stop.

As always, the food was excellent, the service fine and the over all experience verym, very good.
Several years ago I ordered a meal I did not care for, and passed it over to my friend to eat. The owner/manager took note, had a different choice provided, and did not charge for either meal. We found that to be an exercise in premiere customer relations and frequent the resturant often, due in part to his professional and concerned attention. Thank you! MB

Mediocre at best. Wings were tasty, but drenched in oil in a basket. Our entrees were bland (although chicken breast in my chix parm was good quality), the red sauce tasted like it was from a can. Our server was snippy as well, and acted as if she wanted to be elsewhere. Disappointed in our experience overall.

 (Phoenix)·Dined on October 25, 2017

My friend and I took each other to lunch for our birthdays! We both ordered salads and they were large, delicious and filling. We each took a leftover salad container. Our server was very efficient and not overly hovering. The salads were accompanied by 2 rolls which looked great but were very dry and tasteless. Also, my friend said she was Gluten Free so a different option should have been offered to her instead of the roll. The iced tea was refreshing and delicious. It tasted freshly brewed.
We realized it had been more than a year since our last lunch at the Chocolate Ave. Grill. We decided that we would be back there much sooner!

Menu was great and all of our meals came out quick and tasted great. Service was fast but not pushy and best part is the gave fun triangle crayons (so they do not roll off the table) and wicky sticks. Highly recommend for family’s and the menu is not just burgers or bar food.

My fish and chips was very good. My sister had the salmon with the lemon risotto. She thought the risotto was too lemony and they made her a new batch which she loved. My sister loved the pomegranate drink that she had.

We had a great experience there. I took my son for his 10th Birthday for a late dinner after being at Hershey Park all day. Even with a hiccup with the food, everything was taken care of and the service was great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Hershey.

Love this place! We visit every time we see a show at the Hershey Theatre. It's right down the street and has wonderful menu options from salads and sandwiches to entrees and desserts. I always think I know what I want before arriving and then there is some fabulous special to change my mind! I haven't gotten bored and there are numerous things on the menu that I haven't tried yet, but one of my favorites is "Jess's Favorite Salad in the Whole World"........mixed greens with strawberries, almonds and coconut breaded chicken topped off with homemade poppy seed dressing......yum!

Has gone down hill a little since i was there. Food was sloppy and a little overcooked. They did forget a portion of my meal but brought it when i pointed it out. Ask for extra salad dressing as what they give you is not enough. Server was friendly. Interior needs updating.

This is the third time I have been to this restaurant. Love the food and the service. I live a healthy lifestyle and they have so many choices that fit the bill. They also have things for people that want to indulge so best of both worlds. The waitress was quick, efficient and so very friendly. The only problem we had was a table behind us was so animated that it was hard to hear each other.
