The Forebay has been at the Lodge forever, and unfortunately, this is reflected in the decor and menu. It's a bit pricy for what you get, and if they just did an update, they could justify the prices. It's clean, and the service is great, but the menu was blah and mediocre. The pretzel sticks are good, but a bit... More

The food was overall average, and honestly over priced. Our serve was a little slow, but very nice. The restaurant is located inside a hotel, which at this time of the year was very busy.

Selected this restaurant for our anniversary since we were staying at Hershey Lodge. The pretzel bread served while you wait for your food is quite yummy! My husband and I both ordered garden salads which were large and very fresh. For our entrees, I selected the chicken, which was good, but had too many carbs involved as sides (mushroom stuffing,bread... More

We've lived in Hummelstown for 2 years and finally decided to give this restaurant a shot last night. I guess I'd been overlooking it due to the reservations always being available on open table and I took that as a sign it may not be as good as Devon or the Circular Dining Room, Trevi V, etc. Lo and behold,...

Everything on the menu was spot on. All the staff were professional and attentive. A little pricey but well worth it given the other choices on site.

My family and I were on a family vacation, and we wanted to take her to the one of the Hershey restaurants. We had an enjoyable dinner the food was excellent. They even sang Happy Birthday to my mom. It was perfect. The staff was very nice. We will be going back again. I would definitely recommend this place.

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.
