“Surprised us..in a good way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2010

OK...we really did not expect anything great when we came here. We needed to eat something fast and this restaurant was at the Hershey Lodge, where we had just checked in. Well, the hamburger turned out to be surprisingly good, sandwiches were large, special kids drinks not overpriced and service was extremely pleasant and fast. Would we go out of our way to come here? No. But, if you're staying at the Lodge and need a place to eat, this is one of the better places.

“Horrible, slow service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2010

The food was O.K. at best. The service was terrible. After we finished our meal, it took 30 minutes to get the bill AND it was the wrong bill!

“Great with kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2010

The restaurant looks like an ice hockey rink, which kept our 2 year old and 5 year old entertained looking at thing while we waited for our food. Service was good and the food was even better. Can not wait to go back this year.

“Good food and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2010

Went to the Bear's Den after a Hershey Bears game for some late night food. The atmosphere is really interesting, especially if your any type of a ice hockey fan. The restaurant is set up as a sports bar and the menu reflects this. I started off with the hot wings as an appetizer. They were very good, and were heavy, not light like some restaurants. I was a little concerned with the prices. Most items were between $12 - $20. Not even a burger was under $10. I did end up getting a cheeseburger with friend and my girlfriend got a club sandwich. The servings were huge, so I would say you get your money's worth. Overall the food was tasty and the atmosphere was also good.
I would go back again.
