Loved It!

Been here for a business dinner, Appetizer was ok, but the crab cakes were delish, so is the crème brulee. Service was fast and good, Food tastes wonderful, good atmosphere.

This was the best meal we had at Hershey! (except for the two couples ranting about their medical care and how they know more than the dumb doctors who cared for them! It was amusing at first because my husband is a physician, but got old after and hour of their loud rant!) not the fault of the restaurant but... More

I ordered the warm asparagus salad. They forgot to put the asparagus on. The waitress noticed and brought some. Unfortunately they had not washed the greens very well as they were gritty. My table mates had the ribs and steak which they loved. The waitress did a good job. The atmosphere was nice.

My husband and I dined at the Forebay. The staff were attentive, the food was delicious and well prepared. The menu is basic American with some nice touches.

Great place for dinner while staying at Hershey Lodge. A step up from eating burgers, sandwiches, and other basics around the lodge.

Quiet, nice bar area and the food was good! We ate at the bar as you needed reservations, so make one if you plan on eating here. The food is creative. Prices were reasonable.

This restaurant is over priced and the food is not that wonderful. I had ordered a salad and when it came out there was a hair in it and when I brought it to our servers attention he all but said I was not telling the truth. He took it back but I don't think he did anything to it.... More

It is a nice restaurant with a nice patio setting to enjoy a good meal. Unfortunately they don't seem to care about the guests experience. I guess they are so busy they don't care about repeat business? The waiter was very nice, but not into customer service. A third of my filet mignon was fat and the rest had a... More
