OpenTable Diner (New York Area)

The Chocolate Avenue show and dinner was very festive. It was labeled for children also but the production could of been more kid friendly with some audience interaction. The show was very long and children were getting bored with just singing. The service was fast, more than accommodating. Food was delicious including my vegetarian meal.
I canceled one of my tickets the day after they charged my card and after 4 phone calls have been unsuccessful in getting a $55 refund.

The Chocolate Christmas show and dinner were both very enjoyable. The Ballroom was decorated tastefully and the show on stage with the singers and dancers was first rate.
The staff were friendly and professional.

Definitely a great venue with great entertainment.

We attended the Dinner and Christmas Show at the Hershey Lodge with friends. The food was very good and the service was excellent at Table #2. The show was outstanding!!! Such energy and talent! We heard rumor that it might be the last year for the dinner and show which would be a shame. But the Red Ballroom was practically empty and there were probably only about 55 people at the event. What a shame because it was so good!

The restaurant and very neat and clean. We were welcome by a courteous staff. My husband
requested a gluten-free menu and the waiter was very pleasant and knowledgeable.
He ordered the chocolate barbecue shrimp which was simply delicious. The waiter was terrific. The lodge and restaurant looked so eloquent at Christmas. Great job everybody-highly recommended!

Room was decorated nicely for Christmas. Performers came out a sang various Christmas Songs as we ate our appetizers. Appetizers were a variety of cheeses, meats, etc. There was a cash bar. Drink prices were reasonable. Overall value of the dinner was low for the $55 per person charge. Portion sizes were small - Baked Stuffed chicken - especially the desert. Family sitting at our table had 3 children. Each child's meal cost $30 and was chicken tenders with mac and cheese. Same meal at Chocolate World cost less than $10. Show was dancing and singing and was done well.

The show and dinner were both fantastic, the staff was also fantastic they can't go enough out of there way for there guests. I asked a young lady, that I guess was the supervisor of the dinner and show a question, she answered right away and seen that everything run smoothly, I sorry I don't get her name, but was trying to get the sweet light s in that night too. one of the best staff that a place can have. that makes people come back and tell friends. every business I went to in Hershey were friendly and the town and everything was clean. you can tell people takes pride in Hershey.

The Christmas dinner show at Hershey Lodge was excellent in every way. The 4 course meal was delicious, the service phenomenal, and the show was comparable to Broadway. I could do it year after year! It was a great way to kick off the holiday season!

This was an enjoyable Holiday Experience that the children loved. The show was really geared towards children. I did however feel that choosing the only person of color as both the Candyman and Dominic The Donkey, was truly a faux pas, that I would appreciate the director correcting in the future.

The chef went out of his way to accommodate dietary allergies.

The Christmas show was very entertaining and the food was very good. Our waiter was exceptional. The one issue I have with all of this was we reserved through OpenTable for 2 people. Once the tickets were paid for and received it was then stated that it was a table of 10 and we may be sitting with people we don't know. This should have been advertised prior to the booking being made and the tickets being paid for, especially when there could be some not so well behaved children at the table.

Way too expensive for what it was ... Food was fair ... Stuffing was laden with salt , salad and dessert was great .. Service was great. Show was kinda cheesey with poor sound system ... Lower the price and you might get more business

This was our 4th time to be at Hershey's Christmas Dinner show. We always have a wonderful time there but this time, we didn't like the show as much as used be. It was more like a Christmas Singing show. We expected like a musical style show instead...
The foods was o.k. Their cake was much better than last year!!!

Took my family for a show and a meal. They were able to accommodate our 94 year old hard of hearing grandmother as well as my 10 month old grandson. It was a wonderful experience for all ages and the dinner was delicious.

The table was over-crowded and the gentleman sitting next to me had an overwhelming stench of cigarette smoke embedded in his clothing, which interfered with the enjoyment of the meal. There was also a high chair for the small child sitting at our table which force us to cram are seats closer together to make room for this extra seat. Never again.

Food was very good, variety OK except that there were 4 slices of chicken breast, the one on top and bottom were tender and the two in the middle were tough.

Great dessert.

Very hospitable server!
