As a family, we have gone to a lot of different Friendly's restaurants. Near home. On the road. Wherever we can find one. The prices aren't too high and everyone likes the food. This particular Friendly's is very near Hersheypark and the Hershey Lodge. It doesn't HAVE to be good, since it's mostly for tourists who will only come once....yet... More

We arrived late (a bit before 10p) for dinner after the park, and though the restaurant was not crowded, the staff could not keep up with demand in a timely manner, though they sure did try. This seems to be a management issue, not a staff one. Staff was super-friendly and food was typical Friendly's. We chose to eat outside... More

This was hard to rate. The food was very good, however going by the overall experience it was poor. I felt sorry for our server, she seemed to be trying hard and was frustrated by things, such as we were never given cutlery when seated, our order took very long to come out and apparently another server took our appetizer....

As we walked in I noticed that it just wasn't bright and inviting as it had been three years ago when I was there. My husband said he thought it smelled like sour milk. I did notice it didn't smell like good fresh cooking. But then we got a menu to look at while waiting to be seated and it... More

Well, food is good, as it always has been. Not great. Service very slow, intermittent. Which is strange. Late afternoon with wait staff of 3 and a manager.

Had an good meal here the last day we were in Hershey. Quick, efficient service and hot, tasty food. The place was clean and even though it was very busy [it was a Sunday and there was a huge after-church crowd there] we had excellent and very friendly service. I would eat there again if I was ever in Hershey.
