A rather dull evening in a Sports Bar

Went here after an opening reception at a conference. Although it was a Sunday night, the place was quiet. Not sure what it would be like on a busy night. The food was passable, as the gyro was the typical commercial sliced meat, not off the large roll (the slices were too uniform). For bar fare... read more

A great family restaurant We eat here on every visit and we are never disappointed ! The food is great and the service is excellent. Many TVs make it easy for you to follow all the games you want. The only negative is that sometimes it gets a bit loud!

I had lunch at this restaurant while attending a conference at the Hershey Lodge. The young lady who waited on me was very friendly and accommodating and the bartender got me may meal for take out. He was very friendly and he got me my meal fast. The food was very tasting and prepared to my liking.

What to expect? Great burgers, lots of beer on tap and Massive TV screens. The crowd was a bit on the older side for my young family, but still a very cool place.

It's a sports bar to be sure so I guess you can expect some noise but it wasn't even that crowded and we could barely hear each other. The food, honestly, was just average. My daughter had chicken tenders and my husband and I had salads which were just ok. Don't get me wrong, it's fine in a pinch but... More

I had a burger and fries and it was very tasty. Wait staff were very good and the food was prepared as ordered. Prices were reasonable and service was fast.

Being a huge hockey fan, I loved the atmosphere. However, I found the food to be average at best. The price reflects the atmosphere, but not food quality. Both times we dined there, the food was heavily seasoned with salt and/or MSG. I expected more from a "resort" restaurant.

Great atmosphere. Loved the huge big screen. I really like the Greek Gyro Salad. My tip is just to cut everything up, take a little tzatziki dressing then fork of salad. I enjoyed my 2 visits there so far. Will be back next time I stay at the Hershey Lodge

Friends stopped here for a few appetizers and drinks. Nice place to sit and talk with friend. We had the Onion Rings and Nachos with beer and cider.

I wish I had noted our waitresses name because she was very nice and friendly and she deserves to be recognized. While there our 6 yr old son wasn't feeling well and rested his head on my lap for the entire meal. The waitress was very nice to him and kept checking on him and offering him water. He smiled...
