Other reviewers have stated that the food is creative, etc.... I have to agree that there are some good ideas when you look at the seasonal specials menu - and maybe we should have only ordered from that menu.

But we mostly ordered appetizers and they were disappointing. We had the Rhino Tour (would not order again), the Philly cheeseteak flatbread (the best of what we ordered), Nachos (forgettable); and Baked Tomato Soup (did not like).

Frankly, I don't understand how this place is always so busy. This trip, the food was so poor, we actually thought another local restaurant (that we have tried multiple times and want to like but don't) had better food.

Not an epic fail, but a fail all the same. Won't hurry back.

horrible burgers - cold and tasteless. Bun was stale. Burger was frozen patty, not sure even real hamburger. tasted real bad. Soup in a bowl was horrible, like eating muddy water. Stay away!

First, kudos to the owners. They had a benefit night for a person seriously injured in an auto accident - donated 10% of the receipts (of guests with a coupon) to the injured family's fund!! Great work.
The crowd was BIG, but we got seated at pre-arranged tables. Service staff were excellent, though they were overrun by the nymbers and everything moved slowly. That's OK, because the cause was right!
Very nice selection of meals - and rave reviews about quality. Unfortunately, my Fish 'n Chips was moderate in quality. Portions were big and other guests were satisfied. Be sure to order the rhino-fries as an appentizer!

We visit here every October during the Hershey car show. The place is very busy, but the wait staff is on the ball and helpful. Plenty of seating, extensive menu with great, tasty food...and lots of it! We always hit this place during our Hershey stay. A bit out of the way, but well worth the trip! My friends and I love the place.
