Made a reservation for Saturday March 21, 2015 on Open Table for a party of 5 at 7:00pm. Arrived at the restaurant at 6:55pm, after numerous delays, excuses and at times rude comments from someone who identified herself as the owner, we were finally seated at 7:55pm, 55 minutes after our reservation. The 'owner' claimed there no tables available in... More

We decided to have our small wedding and reception in their beautiful room with a fireplace and stained glass windows they closed the set of barn doors for our service adding to the atmosphere, perfect venue for a small wedding! The chef and owner worked on the perfect set menu choices for our group. Everything was perfect and we are... More

I'm not really sure what these other 5 star reviewers are smoking (or maybe who they are working for??) but this place was dirty, felt very outdated and the food was quite poor and that is putting it mildly. My salad greens were wilted and rotten (a particular pet peeve of mine) and my wife's entree was cold and way... More

We have not been to this restaurant since before the flood. I was holding my breath to see if it was still the same. It was not - it was fantastic. We were here last weekend with my college age daughter and two of her friends. The girls loved everything they ordered and my husband and I thought the food... More

Went on a Saturday night to celebrate a birthday. Was greeted by owner and given our choice of tables - not corwded at 630pm. Waiter immediately offered water and drinks. We had wine and a martini, both very good. We tried the potato soup as an appetizer and it was v good. I 'pre-ordered' the duck, which is required and... More

The best Calamari we ever had. Caesar salad and clams casino was also great. Strip Steak and Pan seared scallops were outstanding. Our server Jessica was great. We definitely return when we are in this area.

We had the steak dinners and they were fantastic. This is a fantastic place to enjoy. We are very glad our family took us here. Highly recommend this establishment. Even grabbed a gift card for a gift.

My husband and I have always loved the Union Canal House, even after the devastating flood forced its closure and rebuild. The owners seem to want to build on its capital from before, and the food, quality and prices are worthy of its reputation. Tip: If you want separate checks, ask for them. Otherwise, we encountered quite a bit of... More

While we enjoyed our entrees, the selections were overpriced. Portions were skimpy as well. Also not much privacy for diners as the tables are close together. Would not recommend to couples looking for a romantic meal.

The food is so good...we ate there two nights in a row, during our stay in Hershey. Steak perfect...we had the filet mignon and the delmonico. Service was very good. The whole feel of the place is just great. The owner took us of a full tour of the historic areas of the canal house and got to see the... More
