“Good for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

The place has plenty of parking. The breakfast was good and the price very reasonable. Would definitely come again if in the Hershey area.

“Family-Friendly, Cute, Local Place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

We stopped in for lunch after visiting the Indian Echo Caverns because we were looking for a family friendly local place that didn't break the budget -- we were traveling with four kids (mine two and two of their friends, ages 8-10).

We ate on the back deck because it was a beautiful day. The kids' meals offered a variety of choices and all came with ice cream for dessert -- a hit with our group.

The menu had a wide variety of food. I went with the chicken cordon bleu wrap based on the waitress' recommendation and was not disappointed.

“cute diner, always good for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

I have noticed living in PA for several years that diners are very popular here. The Soda Jerk is a cute, local place. I have only tried their breakfast, which was delicious!

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

This restaurant was located near our hotel so we decided to try it. Our chicken and seafood dishes were tasty but the steak had no seasoning. Portions were diner sized and prices made this place a good value. The disappointment came at the end when we asked for a small sippy cup of milk for our daughter - it was priced at $3.17. Wouldn't come here again.
