Since the prior topic was 2006 and closed I wanted to pose a new question. We are thinking about going to PA, Lancaster, Reading, Hershey area and wanted to get an update on possible places to make reservations for Thanksgiving Dinner. The old topic listed Willow Valley, Eden Resort, Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre, are these still good choices, any others? - Mark

We visited Hershey, PA duirng Thanksgiving week four years ago. We found very little available for a nice Thanksgiving dinner (other than the expensive, elaborate Hershey resort style). It seems like many of the restuarants in the city are family owned and close for the holiday. I would be very much interested in learning of any open for the Thanksgiving meal in 2010.
