The gift shop is very interesting to walk through and has a wide variety of products. However, the buffet is average at best which makes the nearly $30 per person way overpriced.

After reading several reviews, I decided to give the restaurant a try for my "birthday dinner". We had excellent service, the wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Although I wasn't as impressed with the entire buffet, we still had an enjoyable dinner. The rolls were extremely fresh, good salad bar and we had plenty to eat. If visiting the... More

Unless you want to pay too much for more than food than you can humanely eat, buy al la carte. All of their entrees are fun. Service is good.

The food is local and very good. It can get a little crowed because bus trips stop there for the Sight and Sound theater. They also have good baked items and gifts for sale and a nice little produce and flower section outdoors. They have a few goats and chickens that the kids can feed. Very nice.

The hostesses were very nice (they had several bus groups they were seating) and the server was very nice as well. We did however, have an issue...she was... More

We ate dinner here recently while vacationing in the area. The employees were very pleasant, the food was great and the price was very reasonable. Senior discounts.

We have eaten here at least 2 times prior and had a much better experience. My husband ordered a la cart and the food was cold as if they took it from the buffet instead of making it fresh. Very disappointing and we will not return.

We came back to Hershey Farm Restaurant because we had a good experience last time, and I wanted to introduce some of my family to the Amish smorgasbord. We came when the restaurant opened for lunch, and we got first dip into everything and we found out that they are having a promotion and kids can eat free! The food... More

Have been eating here for several years now. The best thing about the place is the consistency. From the first time we started to go here till now the quality of the food has always been great. There is a large variety to choose from so everyone can always find something they like. We also like they have different special... More
