Had a quick dinner here while in Hershey. Menu choices are extensive, food was excellent, service was prompt and friendly and you can't beat the prices. Ice cream really good. Would go back again.

We had a fantastic milk shake. Ice cream is home made and very delicious. Try the turkey club sandwich. Our server was very friendly and accommodating.
