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

I will confess that on our way out to the safety location, I asked if I could take my Manhattan that I had just ordered. I was able to take it with me, (thank you bartender) which made the thought of being in a basement with all the other hotel guests just a much more festive possibility! It is easy... More

Great place right in the Hershey lodge. Tasty food. Cool atmosphere and even a decent place to bring the kids. They have a bar in the restaurant and outside rooftop dining. Nice combo of classy spot and old barn style decorating. Service was good and we didn't have to wait long for a table

Great food and atmosphere. I thought pricing was perfect for selection offered. Enjoyed being able to eat adult food in an adult atmosphere while still pleasing the kids with a great kids menu that complimented your meal.

We waited 45 minutes to be seated, which was not the problem...After being seated we ordered pretty quickly and then we waited and waited. We waited over 1 hour for our food, fish was still raw. We wind up not eating anything there. Go to the Hershey Grill you wont be disappointed.

Our business group of 12 had a good dinner at Forebay. For the most part, people seemed happy with their meals, and there is a good variety on the menu. I ordered the wedge salad and the potato encrusted rockfish. The wedge salad was delightfully presented with four little wedges sprinkled with blue cheese, bacon and fresh cherry tomatoes. The...

Service was excellent at the beginning of the meal quickly taking our order and bringing drinks and appetizers. It took over 30 minutes to get our entrees. Kids entrees were good but stay away from the shrimp entree (almost inedible ) and the salad was good but the accompanying grilled chicken was very dry. Not worth the money.

After a long day at Hershey Park a Chocolate Martini, Pretzel Bread and Seared Rock a Fish was most welcome. Our meal was delicious. They were great with kids. Excellent. Worth the price.
