The What If... of Hershey, is located in the sweetest place on earth, Hershey, Pennsylvania. Make your way down the warmly lit steps to our relaxed menu at the bar, and begin with our famous house infused martini made with fresh squeezed juice. Our eclectic menu is famous for our bountiful crab martini or our collection of beef or seafood sliders. A full service menu is offered in the dining room with an extensive wine list, while you can choose from signature dishes, like pan-seared scallops, and fresh calamari, or our chicken saltimbocca and hand cut filets.

Sweet endings are a ritual of What if…Hershey. All made on premise, including one of Hershey's favorites: our Hot Fudge Peanut Profiterole.

Join us on the avenue for innovative drinks, eclectic food, and genuine Hershey hospitality.

We have eaten at this restaurant before and were not disappointed on our return visit. The service was great, the food delicious and the atmosphere relaxing. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a drink at the bar, a nice dinner, or a party for a larger group.

Dinner was excellent as always--good for special occasions. If the restaurant is busy a little noisy. Wait staff is very good.

This was our firs time there and all the workers were very polite . The bartender actually introduced herself to us since it was our first time and made us feel welcome. Our server was amazing. Very friendly and polite. Will definitely be back and tell people about What If.

This is our annual anniversary “restaurant of choice”. Great food, quiet setting, good service and a good value. Consistently recommend this place to folks who want an elegant meal for a fair price.

Food was excellent; however, service was extremely slow. It took about an hour to receive our salads. Total meal time was two hours for a table of four.

Another great meal at What If. We were only disappointed that the profiterole du jour was s not the peanut butter signature selection. Our server, Bethany, was very attentive and personable. The Sirius 70s station playing was a bit awkward and out of place. We always enjoy What If.

The service on NYE was a little slow, but friendly. My daughters dinner portion of shrimp scampi was extremely small and too “lemony”. The crab cakes were delicious.

Went NEw YEars Eve! The rooms looked festive , warm and inviting. Our waitress was great and the food was great as well. Was a really nice night. It was the first time we were there and I was a little skeptical going into the Howard Johnsons but the place was a great surprise!
Thanks for a really nice night!

The service was outstanding. Great job, Bri! One of my group left their phone behind, and we had a call from the restaurant about the phone before we got home.

Service was slow. We were there nearly two hours. Food was ok. Bread was cold. Soup was lukewarm. Appetizers and entrees were cooked well, but a bit on the bland side. More bold flavors, please!
