Food was average. No gluten free choices except for salads. If you're a hockey fan, there's lots of hockey memorabilia. Lots of big tv's to watch sports on.

I had read the reviews and wanted to go someplace "different" than we could go to back home in NY. We passed a Friendly's on the way in and I wish we went there instead. We are a sports family. We like sports bar food. But this place let us down. It was a lot smaller than I thought it... More

There are several good things about The Bear's Den. We liked the fact that it was open late. We got back from the Hershey Park late and was looking for dinner, so we stopped by here. They have a great kids menu, especially for picky eaters. The regular menu is very good too. It's your typical bar & grill type... More

This restaurant is located in Hershey lodge. There are a lot of TV screens with local sports but surprising the noise level is good and able to have a conversation. We arrived at 5pm and there were 6 open table and told 20 minute wait: told "we have people on call for the tables"; no one shown up and we... More

I was here a few times during a week long conference. The lunch was better than I expected (grilled chicken salad) and the service was good. It is a very bright restaurant, which I don't love, but it definitely suffices for a quick lunch or would be fun for a sporting event.

If you like sports, the Bears Den offers large screen tv's and has a different game on almost every screen. Also tv's located at the booths as well. Food is a bit on the expensive side. Portions are large though. Atmosphere is great. Staff seem a bit discomboulated at times. But overall, I enjoyed being there. Worth a hang out!

We stayed at the Hershey Lodge and ate at the Bears Den twice for dinner. The restaurant is very clean and great for family dining. Many options, prices were reasonable, and it had a great atmosphere.
