We arrived around 10:00 pm when the restaurant was supposed to be closing. I believe her name was Samantha, said we could still eat since they did take out til 10:30. We had just driven in from NJ that day, then went straight to Hershey Park, so we were very tired and hungry.She was very courteous and efficient without making... More

Quick service - bar type fast menu - nice atmosphere - can get a bit crowded - better than most "hotel bars"

Had a great dinner here with the kids the night before my wedding. Staff was very pleasant and accomodating. Prices were reasonable and if you stay at the hotel, kids under 12 eat free! Can't beat that :)

Even though most of the staff was transferred to the big Easter Brunch of 500, one young man stood out...Richard...and the food was good

The atmosphere of the restaurant was nice but food wasnt good at all. We had the Belgian waffle and it was so hard we had to cut it like a steak and the pancakes were terrible. So if you go there don't buy there breakfast.

We stayed at this hotel and ate at this restaurant 4 times. We had the breakfast buffet twice. This is a buffet that you would typically find at a Homewood suites where they offer the same breakfast for free. However, the buffet was inexpensive so I can't complain. There was a wide variety of breakfast foods and liked the hot... More

It was my mother's birthday and she wanted to go to this restaurant, because she and my father would frequent it after church on Sundays. I thought ok, it's her choice, but told my kids not to expect a great meal. I was pleasantly surprised!!!! I was really hungry for seafood, realizing a hotel chain is not the place to... More
