    Our reservation was at 7:45 but we did not receive our food until 9. There were multiple groups that were seated after us, received their food and finished before we received our food. Our waiter, True, was amazing, but the timing of everything was not good. We were starving by the time we got our food.

    The food was not great. The house salad was weird, especially the dressing. The GF flatbread pizza was terrible. It was a quarter of a tomato sliced on top of cardboard, with tiny dollops of cheese. The service was good though

    Food prices are similar to what you would pay at the amusement park. We’ve been here so we expect it. Food was good, service was good. Value is good, not great. Overall it’s always a treat to eat here and my family always enjoys it!

    Arguably the best restaurant at Hersheypark. The food was decent although the gimmick of putting chocolate on the food does little to hide the fact that it is generic park fare, and the service was also pretty good. The theming is top notch especially for a place like Hersheypark.

    Prices are high and service is slow… the food wasn’t all that great. The atmosphere is really nice. We asked for a booth when we booked the reservation a week in advance. They didn’t want to give us one. Probably won’t go back.

    The chocolatier was amazing last night. The decor was like I was in a chocolate factory. The environment is so unique. I could never find another restaurant that would ever see it. The food was outstanding. I order the coco rub pork short ribs. Given that it was a chocolate signature dish, it was exceptional and out of this world. The service was the best I have ever experienced. The waiter service men and my friend took our order right away and checked on us to see how we are doing and continually offered us drink refills. He was so accommodating and caring of our experience and time. Overall, the chocolatier was the best dining experience I have seen in Hershey.

    Food and service were just fine. My complaint is about having to pay $35 just to go to the restaurant and eat dinner. This definitely kept our spending in line when picking food. I skipped several items knowing I just paid to park. Please figure out a way to have locals enjoy this place without the ridiculously high parking fee.

    Undercooked Macaronis, overpriced, the crust on the flatbread was old, to much cheese on my fries, but we did get the macaroni taken off our bill so the service was good.

    We had the crispy chicken sandwich and the cuban sandwich. Phenomenal. The signature chocolate martini left something to be desired. Tasted like fake chocolate and water. Overall would recommend the food, nothing else.

    We stopped by to grab some appetizers and light food after spending the day in the park. My one daughter got the chicken and waffles and said it was amazing! It was a little spicy, but she liked it. She only wish that it came with pancake syrup. I highly recommend getting the chocolate barbecue wings. And also the nachos were very filling.

    Great mac & cheese...son (12 y/o) ate adult portion and both my wife and I were able to have a few bites...was told the chicken sandwich was the best seller, but chicken & pork was dry...thankfully I asked for a side of BBQ sauce (originally requested it for my fries) which is what it needed. Wife had shrimp tacos which she enjoyed. Overall, good food...just ask for extra sauce if you get that chicken sandwich. 🙂

    If you’re just wanting the experience order the milkshakes and or the Ferris Wheel appetizer. The waffle that comes with the chicken was very dry and chicken was not very flavorful. Burger was ok but so many other places near with better burgers. Milkshakes are over priced $18.75!!!

    Our waitress was great, you can tell she was hustling, but she was very attentive. The food though wasn’t great. My sweet potato fries were HARD and lukewarm on arrival. My daughter got the chicken Alfredo and the sauce was flavorless. I’m not sure we’ll dine there again, if they can’t get it right in a random Wednesday out of season then I’m afraid to see what it like when it’s the middle of summer.

    Nice dinner with family. They were able to accommodate our reservation request to sit in one of the themed booths, which made my preschooler very happy! Service was relatively slow, as it’s been every time we go. From seated to bill we were there 2hrs with lengthy wait for each course to arrive.

    This was my 2nd time there. Most of the food was good. The PB crunch burger was very salty. I ordered it to be cooked medium. It came out well done. 2 of us got this burger and both had the same result. I just wouldn't recommend this burger unless you like salty things. I will go back again.

    First let me say it’s a cool place to eat. I think this is geared to people that have kids that want to eat on property with a bit higher caliber of price with projection of being better. We got to park in the season pass parking lot due to the park being closed. It was pouring. We had the Ferris wheel appetizer. It’s expensive but you get a nice selection of average appetizers except the wings which are very good. The food was not hot but warm. I ordered a short rib dinner and I found it very good. It needed a bit more gravy which the provided. Our waiter was very good. I believe the prices on some of the items are outrageous. $19 for a milkshake. Let me say that people have no lack of money as we saw many large families eating lots of food. I feel like the appetizer though expensive was worth it kind of. My short ribs was good for the price. Is it better than houlihans around the corner. No. It is cool place to impress your kids. Yes. My favorite restaurant is the circular at Hotel Hershey it has has no competition in town. Expensive but elegant and great food.
