Went with the kids for a bite to eat and some ice cream. The service was excellent and the food was great. Hot or cold sandwiches, made to order and hot, crispy fries (our side of choice) hit the spot after a long day. I loved that there were healthy options too that did not sound or taste boring. Ice...

I grab lunch here roughly once a week (the one day I don't pack my own). The new menu is great, and the staff is incredible. The female manager is always friendly and accommodating and Pat always takes great care in creating whatever sandwich tends to roll off my tongue that day. Try the Salmon Panini! And you can't beat... More

Visited with family of 4...awesome food. Philly Steak....2 huge slices....gigantic meatball Bolli and chicken fingers with fries with 4 drinks under $25. Many short order delicious options...took a while to decide because it all looked good. Server Pat was so accommodating and wanted the best experience for us and others in restaurant. Met a few locals including the owner that... More

First off, this is a nice (if small) deli-pizza-ice cream place in the heart of things in Hershey. While their website wants to push an image of being really high end ("Phillip Arthur's Cafe has redefinded Fast Casual. Call us Fast Elegant.") that's a big step from the reality of the place. It's a limited deli that also does pizza... More

We were here for lunch with our three kids and LOVED the place. Trip advisor rating is spot on for this place. Fantastic and creative salads for me and the hubby and the girls loved the pizza. Cute bay window to sit in suited our family of 5 perfectly.

While visiting Hershey we were looking for a local place with fresh food. This place sure delivered. There were so many options to choose from on the chalkboard menu, it was tough to choose. We opted for the butcher block pizza, and my daughter watched as the pizza maker hand sliced all of the delicious meats that covered the pie.... More

We saw the rave reviews for Phillip Arthur's and just had to stop for lunch on our way home from a Hershey Park weekend. The pizza smelled so good, but my boys wanted to have panninis and I wanted to try their cheesesteak. Even though the place was not crowded, it took a while to get our food. This was... More

I wanted something local before our family returned home from Hershey Park. In short, we did a little research and happened Phillip Arthur's. We ordered Chicken wings, which were done to perfection, Pizza slices which were generously portion and two sandwiched Rueben and Turkey Rueben. Fantastic and very reasonable. The fountain drinks came with the slices with free refill were... More

Not sure why we are # 1 with so many great places out there and more fancy etc including my own Feniccis of Hershey since 1935 but i guess when it comes down to it, in a town like this people want nostalgia, creative healthy menus a kind staff, kid friendly and good prices, and I put all my bets...
