Very good value for the money...no complaints here!

I have to make a small comparison to the Harvest restaurant in the Hotel Hershey. Food not quite as good, but let's be honest...it was very good and 30-40% less than the Harvest Restaurant we ate at the night before. Wife had the "down home Angus pot roast"...excellent.$14.50. I had the small... read more

Went for Mother's Day about mid-afternoon and we were able to sit outside which was nice. Not sure I'd want to sit there alongside Chocolate Avenue on a really busy traffic day though. Large and very nice atmosphere inside. Service was friendly and fast. Nice sized servings and our food looked good but was lacking in flavor. The salsa that... More

We had dinner here after visiting hershey park. Got seated right away no wait. Waitress was friendly and attentive. Food was just ok. Portions small and prices were higher end. Wouldn't recommend for big family's on a budget.

Have to try the Flight of mini martinis, 3 for $10. And the berry dinner salad and buffalo chicken salad. All plates were completely clear when taken away!

Saturday, May 2nd was the first time I had visited here and boy, was the food really good!!! The Veggie Burger Slider that I had was the best I've ever tasted! For us it was a big group and I was impressed that we didn't have to wait so long to get a table...only 1/2 hour. We were waited on... More

This restaurant offers a broad menu that promises more than it delivers. After waiting 25 minutes (no call ahead is available) my party ordered a varied array of items. The shrooms were the best. Entrees were mediocre in taste and size. The waitress was very difficult to get in touch with, and we had to chase her down. I thought... More

Their menu is different which isn't a bad thing but it's not varied enough. Atmosphere is bar although the actual bar is in the middle of the floor and tables are all around it. They do NOT take reservations at all ever. Nice touch is their adjacent parking lot. Servers are very nice and helpful. Portions were good size. Their... More

While visiting Hershey, PA my two brothers and I went to dinner at Houlihan's. We were immediately seated, as my brother made a reservation. The waitress was WONDERFUL ... She couldn't have been better, but I was a little disappointed with the food/menu. The appetizers were very good, but when I asked for marinara sauce for the fried calamari, someone... More

I had dinner at Houlihan's, Hershey, PA, on Saturday, April 25, 2015. The server did an excellent job of waiting on our table. I had the tomato soup as an appetizer. It was very tasty. For my entree, I had Salmon. It was small but good. Instead of the mashed potatoes, I had the asparagus. My other vegetable was green... More

My family and I use to really enjoy this place. The menu had a great selection and the food was prepared well. Now things are much different. I was with a party of 7 and I believe one of the seven meals was enjoyed. The one and only burger on the menu that I had tasted like nothing but charcoal.... More
