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.

This was a very nice experience. after a full day of traveling my wife and I need to relax to a nice meal. I had the Sea bass (minus the sauce) and my wife the Filet Mignon cooked just right as ordered. For starters I had the Mushroom soup and my wife had the shrimp cocktail Both well done. We... More

Ate dinner here...good portion, great service. My seafood pasta was fabulous--homemade pasta and generous portion of seafood. My friend has steak--it was great portion, but just ok...not much seasoning. We shared the crab/avocado salad appetizer which was nice. Their signature chocolate molten cake was just ok...I definitely expected more. We sat outside which was nice. Nice hotel on property, but... More

I had gotten a coupon for a free birthday entree that was good at 6 different restaurants and I chose this place, which was a good choice! We were able to sit outside on the patio and enjoy an excellent meal. We mostly had the patio to ourselves for most of the meal. Service was excellent and the food was... More

Discovered Forebay as a last minute reservation after spending the day at Hershey Park with two families with children. What was interesting was that we had two reservations: one for our family at 6:00 and another for the second family at 7:00. In all, four children aged 3 to 6 and six adults. I was not expecting anything special, but... More

My husband took me here for an early valentines dinner, it was pouring outside but was so cosy inside. Had the special and was amazing, the chef can sure cook a mean piece of fish. My husband and I actually hate this meal so slow, cause we didn't want it to be gone!! And service was great!!

Took our family of five out to dinner while visiting Hershey for the weekend. Although we made a reservation we ended up being considerably later than planned; however we were still seated right away. It was a warm friendly atmosphere. We felt comfortable bringing our teenagers. They have a wonderful menu; something for everyone and our waitress was very helpful... More

We had a very good dining experience. My fiancé had New York Strip Steak and I had Crab Stuffed Flounder, both were excellent. We were very pleased with the service, atmosphere and food.

My boyfriend and I came here for New Year's Eve...After being seated for ten minutes, a manager came over to our table and asked if the waitress had been over yet and she hadn't... Once she took our drink order, we waited another ten minutes before she came back and told us she forgot what we ordered! Overall, the food... More
