We had reservations at 8 for 6 people. At 8:15 we were still not seated and told we could be seated at 2 different tables in different rooms of the restaurant. We were told the people sitting at the table where we were supposed to sit were finished but weren’t leaving. Thankfully we were able to ask another waitress (not the host/hostesss) if it was possible to combine two 4 top tables that were open and next to each other. The host must have missed this because she never removed her aviators. The restaurant wasn’t crowded. This wasn’t a difficult problem. The food was fine- pub fare. The wait staff was fine. But the interaction when we first arrived won’t have me coming back.

This place transitioned to new owners a while back. In its former incarnation as Irv's Pub it was one of our favorites. After they were sold we had two very bad experiences (poor service, cold food) and had removed this from our list of places to eat.
Well last week some friends of ours convinced us to give it another shot and we were glad we did. The service was very good. Our food was good and well prepared. The portions are very significant, close to being too big! The beer selection was wide and the beers we tried were all very good.
This visit has moved the RBP back into our good graces.

We have always loved Irv's burgers, until now. My husband and I ordered the regular Irv's burger and a Southwestern burger. Both were dry and they were cool when the cheese was put on because it didn't melt at all on either one. Also, we ordered them to be cooked at medium and they were both well-done. Our guest's salmon was a tad overcooked and the PoBoy was nothing special.
The menu has been changed, and the Korean chicken from a few menus ago that we came for was not on the menu at all. There is nothing on this menu that appeals to me, so we may give it a try again when a new menu is instituted.

This local establishment has gone down hill. Food was cold, and just mediocre. My pork tacos tasted like reheated meat.

The food was innovative, well prepared and very flavorful. The menu is original and changes seasonally; there was something for everyone. The decor was subdued and tasteful. The noise level was low and the bar area was separated from the dining area. This was our third visit and it will not be our last; we took friends with us and they also enjoyed it.

Everything about this restaurant is great except that they lack access for people who are disabled. They have handicap spots in the parking lot but you have to walk up quite a few stairs to get in which many disabled people cannot do. This place is not wheelchair accessible. They should really have a wheelchair ramp or turn the stairs into a ramp. Really disappointing.

Brussel sprouts were good. Irv's burger was good, fries were cold. There was a fly in the restaurant near the table/window that I had to keep swatting. Limited dessert options. The bar area was really loud, so it took away from the dining experience.

It was our first time dining at Irv’s Pub. It’s a very nice restaurant and our food was delicious. Our server, Leah, was fantastic. She made sure we had a good experience. The only thing I didn’t like about the whole experience was the noise level. It was extremely loud and made it difficult to carry on a conversation within our small party of four.

Menu interesting. Ordered the shrimp paella- extremely overspiced and hot. Waitress had to recommend putting sour cream on dish to cut the heat. Generous portion however. Rice good. Very noisy. Waitress very good.

Visited for the 1st time on Sunday for brunch with my sister. I made a reservation but it wasn't necessary since there weren't many people in the restaurant during the hour and a half we were there. The restaurant is small but cozy, well decorated, comfortable and quiet (a little too quiet for some perhaps). We were greeted and seated immediately, the waitress Olivia was very friendly and attentive. Would have appreciated a run through of daily food and drink specials but Olivia was only 18 and not familiar with alcoholic beverage selections. The music playlist was very nice and relaxed. The food menu was short and simple but the craft beer/wine/drinks menu was very extensive (bonus)! We ordered the eggs benedict florentine which was unique and excellent. The portion sizes are very large and two adults can share one dish. The egg was perfectly poached, the hollandaise sauce tasted fresh made and it was served with a dressed salad mix, grilled chicken on a beefsteak tomato slice and artisan toast with a creamy and slightly spicy chipotle or siracha sauce between. It was a nice offset to the mild hollandaise and salad dressing flavors. Excellent! The bloody mary was epic-perfectly mixed and spice with a spice rim and garnished with a gourmet deviled egg, grilled shrimp, pepperoncini and a cheese stuffed olive (a drink and meal in one). I had the Rotunda craft beer called Mango Citrass Down....it was delightful.-light and citrusy but full bodied and with a subtle mango finish. We were hoping to move to the bar area to watch the Eagles opening game but there were only 2 people at the bar so the ambiance wasn't what we were hoping for. For brunch it was a nice quiet place for conversation. We are looking forward to coming back for dinner on a weekend evening to try some other menu selections and drink specials. Hopefully the ambience will be a bit more upbeat and lively. A wonderful, but hidden gem close to home!

My husband and I his sister who was in town from Florida, enjoyed a delicious meal there. Although my husband said the fries were mushy. He had fish and chips but said fries were not good. Me and Susie had salmon and that was very good. Peach cobbler was tooooo sweet. Great service though

This is one of the best kept secrets in the Hershey area! To increase our dining options my friend and i shared everything. The Brussels sprouts were yummy and large enough to share. The fried oysters (tho not usually a fan) with the deviled eggs were also good.

For our entrees, we ordered the Irv's burger (so amazing!) with homemade chips and the fish (2 large fillets, light and crispy) and chips (fresh cut fries, lightly seasoned)

We ended the meal with the seasonal sorbet (not much flavor) and creme brulee which was a perfect ending to a wonderful meal.

The selection of craft beers were also good. The Rotunda Brewing Company's peach melba was very fruity, tart and refreshing. I even got a crowler of it to go.

Irv's just isn't what it used to be. Although food is still arguably good, the service has really decreased. Our server never even offered water refills. She rarely came to the table. Irv's started as an upscale pub and now loud music is played and cheap flowers have been added as decoration, which doesn't match at all. Used to be a favorite date night place, but my husband and I couldn't even hear each other at our 2 top. Disappointing for sure. Worth the food? Maybe, just don't expect what the atmosphere used to be.
