Good for locals too.

I live near this location. In the off-season when Hershey isn't too busy we will stop by the Bears Den a few times for dinner. The chocolate martinis are great, all 6 kinds. The food is good and in generous portions.

Great quick dinner after a busy day in town. Stayed at the Lodge so just had to go downstairs. Lots of TV's, all with sports channels on - good choices on the menu. Didn't get any dessert (still too full from all the chocolate at Chocolate World) but saw some desserts being delivered to a table nearby - HUGE!!!

We ate here while visiting Hershey. There was 8 people within our party. The food that came out correctly was ok. However, two of our meals came out incorrect. It took over 15 minutes to bring a plain roast beef sandwich out after speaking to two waitress asking for our waiter. Our waiter was not attentive at all. The service... More

So we will be coming back to... More

Reasonably priced. Food was good, decent selection. I have a gluten allergy and they were very accommodating. Definitely would recommend this restaurant.

I thought the burgers and food was very good, especially the onion rings. Beer was perfectly chilled and tasted great after an exhausting day of fun at the park. The service was also very good and friendly. The restaurant itself is really a combination of sports bar and cafeteria.

Another of must do places for any of our annual two or three trips to Hershey is the Bears Den in the Hershey Lodge. From start to finish a great experience including both visits this past weekend. One of the key factors Saturday? Their kitchen stays open until midnight. We sat at 11:40PM, close to closing time, but we were... More

Salad was excellent!!!service was quick. I was there on business and needed to be in and out. It was very busy, but I was well taken care of. I don't remember name of salad but it had chicken and fruit with a maple vinaigrette dressing- really good.
