My friend and I were celebrating a birthday lunch. From the pictures on line we weren't expecting it to be so much like a diner. Nice place for families, but not for a special occasion lunch . Service was very good. Food was good, but a little pricy for the type of venue.

Food selection was great and quality was outstanding. The Hershey theme was apparent with the chocolate brown napkins and Kisses which were given at the end of the meal. The atmosphere is very casual, and many families were dining with young children.

The ingredients used were fresh and of high quality. However, the final product was very bland. I couldn't believe how tasteless the orecchiette and steak were. When my wife has to put salt on a dish, that's a problem. Also, kind of expensive for what you get. Service was very good.

Disappointing. We reserved the Grill for Thanksgiving day dinner for the family. On entry to the restaurant, was surprised it seemed more like a diner than a formal restaurant. The advertisement was a bit misleading. The menu did have a Thanksgiving option; which was decent in presentation and flavor. Salmon salad was well presented and prepared. Servers were nice, but did not seem well trained, as they struggled a bit greeting and checking back with our table. Ambiance was noisy, and was surprised to find diners in jeans, t-shirts and sweats. Not what we expected for a holiday dining experience. Will not ever return, nor would I recommend the Grill.

Enjoyed Thanksgiving Dinner while visiting Hershey Lodge. We made a Noon Reservation and were taken immediately. Our waitress was very professional and welcoming. We enjoyed a so-so Turkey Dinner. I personally thought the potatoes, stuffing, gravy and root vegetables were not great. The turkey was cooked to my liking and the Chocolate Martini was the highlight of our meal. I might go back for another meal if I wanted to drive 5 hours through 4 states in the future.

We stayed at the Hershey Lodge for a few days vacation and ate at the Hershey Grill for convenience but ended up really enjoying it. Wouldn't hesitate to go back there if were ever in the area again.

This was our first time here, but not our last. We'll return next time in the area. Everything was delicious. I had tossed salad with sherry vinaigrette and pork schnitzel. My husband had the mushroom Brie soup and the butternut squash orecchiette. Big portions....we each took some home.. Dessert was pumpkin maple creme brûlée and bananas foster bread pudding. Amazing! Great service too.

Looking for a good meal while attending the Hershey antique car meet. This is nothing more than a hotel diner, no bar, limited alcohol selection, few beer choices, and a menu the equivalent of a best western hotel cafe. So for a thin over cooked New York strip and French fries, with a glass of water, it will do just fine.

We were on our way to Hershey theater and made reservations to get dinner before the show. We were seated beside the restrooms behind the bar and it was extremely noisy. The food was OK , The added steak I had ordered for my vegetarian meal was not prepared as I had ordered it was overdone. Everything else was just fine and tasty. There appeared to be not enough wait staff as we were not attended to In a very timely manner. I would probably go back but hope that some of these things could be looked at and made a serious attempt at rectify.

Hello

We were 4 for dinner and all meals were very good. However one meal needed to be sent back. It was made with soy sauce which made the meal very salty. My guest ordered something else.
A little embarrassing since they were my guests, but they seemed to be good sports about it.
Thanks

We had a party of 6 and all enjoyed our dinner at the Hershey Grille very much. Two of us got the pork loin, two got the seafood mac and cheese, one got the grouper special of the day , and one got the beef stroganoff and noodles. It was my father's birthday and he and his wife frequent the Grille because the food is always delicious, the portions are generous, and the prices are reasonable. The service is very good and the hostess and servers are all very friendly. We will go back again.

It was our first time at this restaurant, it was a lot smaller than expected and our table was located in a very awkward spot in the middle of the entranceway the servers and other families had to practically lift things over our heads to get to their tables and we were constantly dodging people walking by. Having a reservation scheduled for at least a week in advance should give us a better table than that. Other than that everything was wonderful!

The food options may be a little pricey for the atmosphere; however the quality is remarkable. The seafood Mac and cheese was enjoyed by my husband. The scallops were great along with the shrimp and crabmeat. The serving could be minimized and still be enjoyed.

I got the vegetable risotto and added the shrimp. It was terrific as well. The squash, Brussels sprouts, mushrooms and leeks were quite plentiful. Again serving could be minimized. We have eaten at home for 2 meals as a side.

This restaurant is listed as "upscale" and fine dining… in my opinion it is not. We waited two hour for our "meals" we didn't even order main meals- we ordered appetizers, salads and two kids meals- they couldn't figure out the timing- the kids steak came completely burnt on the outside and bloody red on the inside- we ordered them well done. The hostess was SO friendly and very nice… the waitress did her best with what she had…. food average- decor- nothing like the website describes… very disappointed!

The food is very good. We had the Sunday special of Prime Rib and it was served as we ordered, medium rare.Mashed potatoes and fresh veggies completed the meal. Unfortunately , we cannot have chocolate after 3pm so we decided on the warm fig apple strudel with ice cream which was a delightful ending . We took our Hershey Kisses along for the next day. Our waitress, Kirsten was very efficient and attentive. Great place to dine before going to the Hershey Theatre .

Hershey week restaurant menu was awesome, more interesting than regular menu.
The creamed artichoke soup, scallops entree & the almond torte with fresh fruit were delicious and beautifully presented. My husband enjoyed his fennel crusted lamb.
They should add the restaurant week items to the regular menu.
Service very good.

Great food, very pleasant service, good drinks, an all around great option in the Hershey area! Check the menu online to make sure it is within the price range you wish to spend, and if so, we definitely recommend this restaurant. The seafood mac and cheese had huge, delicious chucks of a variety of seafood, from large, perfectly cooked scallops, to lobster. Crabcakes were delicious, as was the crab and corn chowder.
