My high school friends and I were there this week. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. Food and drinks were fantastic. Brad was an awesome waiter and answered all of our questions about different drinks. We'll be back!

Was visiting PA, while my husband was stationed there. We wanted to try somewhere local that we couldn’t find else where! This place was perfect! Great food, had a perfect view of the Hershey, PA ambience and great prices! It was just what we were looking for!

Very good meal but the service was not the usual good service we have received there in the past. Waitress kept forgetting things and even served the food without an ingredient we asked for. She said oops, I forgot! She made several mistakes with our order which again is not the usual for this restaurant. Also, a booth was requested & not given.

The food and service were very good. My only issue was that the tables on either side of ours were close and made it uncomfortable.

My wife and I took our son, his wife and two grandchildren here before going to the Giant Center for Disney on Ice. The food was excellent, the service was good and it was a family friendly place. Definitely will be going back next time we go to Hershey.

Friendly and knowledgeable service and a nice menu. Our waitress Olivia was great. My reuben was excellent as was my wife's salad (sorry, can't remember its name, just that it was good). Beer/wine selection was good and prices were reasonable. We'll be back when we visit Hershey again.

Long weekend exploring Hershey from Pittsburgh, this gem was recommended ... atmosphere is that of a repurposed Denny’s or Bob’s Big Boy, but the food bears no parallel at all to such chain basic fare. My osso buco was among the best I’ve ever had, complemented with a red wine mushroom demiglace & plated with a healthy portion of riced garlic potatoes & what seemed like a quarter crown of broccoli. My wife’s coconut fried chicken salad with the House poppy seed dressing was also superb. The peanut butter chocolate cheese cake (shared) was a great denouement to a fine meal. All that and two “call” spirit cocktails for $65 before tip. Exceptional food, great service at an exceptional value.

The food the service and atmosphere are Superbe. Kelsey Was a very attentive and efficient server. Our meals were nicely presented and very tasty with ample food portions. We have eaten 3 times at this location and each time our expectations have been exceeded. The Chocolate Grill is really sweet...

We visited before attending a show at Hershey Theatre. Lots of other people had the same idea, so they were very busy. The waitress told us it was Greek night, so we decided to have that special. We each got a generous Greek salad, scallops over risotto with fresh tomatoes, feta and spinach, and baklava for dessert. A bargain at $29. Our waitress Kelly was very attentive. When I complained about cold decaf coffee she made a fresh pot and took it off our bill.

Love this restaurant! Salads are great! My husband had the portobello burger which was sensational. Service was very good, food came quickly but we did not feel rushed in any way. Walking distance to Hershey Theater and Chocolate Museum. Highly recommend!

Seated very quickly, we were not asked a preference of table or booth even though we had a reservation and there was virtually no one in the restaurant yet. The waitress was attentive but not friendly. She did not sell up appetizers or ask if I wanted more wine. I would have ordered both. She was very curt and short. She did her job well but wasn't overly nice.

Still my go-to for going to when out and about in Hershey. Signature (Jess) salad is always a hit among those to whom I recommend the restaurant when in town - never been able to recreate their incredible poppy dressing!

Good place to eat in Hershey. Independent as opposed to all the chain places around town. The only down note was the Chicken Marsala. It is my favorite and this place made it right. The last two times, however, the chicken was hard to cut and a bit tough. Seemed like the pieces were too thick for this dish. Roasted asparagus was very good. My husband loved his salmon. Service was attentive.

This Pre-Nutcracker matinee lunch was quick, close to Hershey Theater and had good food. I had “Jess’s favorite salad in the world” which was delicious. The lemonade was really too sweet, but everyone ate their lunch and said they enjoyed it. Not much in the ambience department, so go for the fresh food and the Hershey zip code.

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.
