This is a more formal alternative to the Hershey Grill. The food is great and the dark chocolate martini was to die for. The waitress was most enjoyable, allowing us to slowly savor a variety of appetizers and drinks while we waited for two others to join us after meetings. I think we were there for two hours before the... More

Good place for unique food. A bit pricey, but worth it. We left with food both times we at there because the servings are more than adequate.

Accommodating and pleasant place to get dinner or just some snacks. Very friendly staff who worked hard to meet the special dietary needs one of us had (no pepper in the preparation, and no fresh fruit, vegetables, or nuts/seeds). We had a nice meal at a moderate price-point.

The chocolate martini and the chocolate cake were very good but everything in between was overpriced and average. We had the mussels which were small but the biggest issue was that they were in a bland anemic tomato sauce. The potato crusted rockfish was bland and a little overcooked and the smokey flavored mashed potatoes overpowered the whole dish. We... More

Best meal by far of our short family vacation at Hershey, Pa. Chef Ryan made a wonderful fish special that was so fabulous, it took my taste buds on an adventure. My wife ordered the filet and that was seasoned well and was so tender!!!! Also, meal drinks and desert for around a hundred!!!! A visit well deserved!!! Enjoy!

We ate here with our 2 1/2 year old grandson. The waitress was the best! The food was very good along with the friendly service. It is very convenient being located on the 2nd floor. A little pricey but worth it!

Fabulous meal with great pacing. We didn't feel rushed, but our 2 year old could easily make it through the meal. The pretzel bread to start the meal was an unexpected treat. We can recommend the mushroom soup, wedge salad ( beautiful presentation that made it much easier to enjoy), and the filet. The bartender at the Forebay had the... More
