Things Have Changed

It's been many years since last visiting Hershey Farm. The restaurant underwent a major overhaul in that time. It is very pretty looking how they have the stations set up and the stone facades. Good atmosphere and I enjoy the frontier-like music that plays around the place. The soups and... read more

Poor quality, few choices, old recycled sides, dishes, pastries...the price charged for breakfast is very expensive, you better off eating somewhere else. Their smorgasbord buffet was terrible last year and did not improve this year either.

We chose to eat here because they served a buffet breakfast until 10:30 (we got a late start) and are very glad we did. The inside of the restaurant has a lot a charm and the breakfast selections were very good. Children 12 and under eat free which was a bonus. The grounds are also nice to explore they have... More

Had lunch here after the show at Sight & Sound. There were eight of us in the group, with one couple (my wife and I) ordering off the menu and the rest of the folks choosing the buffet. Food was at the high end of average, but the prices were rather high for the quality. Ample portions. You won't leave... More

What a great place for food. The smorgasbord was amazing and the staff very friendly. 3 of us had the full buffet and 2 had the light buffet and we were all pleased with it.

My room was not ready at a local hotel here so I went for breakfast. My hotel suggested to eat here. Dry eggs. Sour chocolate milk. Fatty bacon. It was still oinking. Not alot of options. Paid 11.99 a person. I am not cheap but I expect decent food. Server was nice. I would go else where. Thanks for reading... More

I stayed in the Carriage house for two nights while we explored the area and had a great time! The restaurant and Inn are in a great location for tourists. Everything I wanted to see was with in a15 minutes or less driving distance. I didn't end up going to the restaurant for dinner or lunch but I would love... More

This is a good place to try near to Sight & Sound theatre. You have an option of ordering from menu and buffet. Not lot of varieties compared to buffets around the area. Food is good. Locals have a discount dining in this place.

Last year I only gave 3 stars and I think it has improved since last year. I have been coming here for dinner for years. While I think the prices have gotten a little high the food is good. If the place was not so expensive I might have given it 5 instead of 4 stars. My family and I... More
