The breakfast buffet was really good and service was good too. We did not have to wait. They offered "fake" eggs like most continental breakfasts, sausage, bacon, gravy, cereal, fruit, etc. Conveniently located next to the banquet halls if you are there for a meeting or conference.

The kids really enjoyed having lunch here with the tv's in the booths and authentic Hershey Bears/hockey paraphernalia. The food was very good. I really enjoyed the fish tacos. Uniquely prepared. Great choices for the kids to eat!

My wife and I tried this restaurant because it was so convenient - we were staying in the hotel for the weekend. But we were disappointed with our experience here. The wait time for two subs was at least 20 min, and they were overpriced for frankly average quality. The best part about the experience was the friendliness of the... More

Food was good. Friendly staff. Fast service. A little pricey especially for breakfast. The highlight was the brownie at the end.

This has a great hockey/ sports bar feel to it! The art and decorations give the feel of being at a hockey game. The food and service are excellent.

OK. It's not REALLY a hockey arena, but they've done the best they could to give you that feel, from the markings on the ice, er, floor to the signage and hockey stick counter supports. The restaurant contains many tributes to various teams and eras of the Hershey Bears, and is lined by TVs in the manner of a sports... More

Very large screen when you enter in the place. Greeted by server Samantha, she seemed to be tired, really wanted me to order then move on. As a first timer, as felt rushed to the order. The burger was good, and the selection of craft beers was low.

We have been going to Hershey Lodge and eating at the Bears Den for seven years now and it never ceases to be a great place to meet, great food and friendly servers. There is a good variety of food and we always like to try the new offerings every year!

As locals, we stay away from the lodge for most of the year because of the volume of people But January and February are the exception. We took a family trip to the Den and while the prices went up, the food quality was very good and quantity was generous. Burgers, fish/chips, salad and quesadilla were all very good Service... More

Pros: superb service, super quick (10-15 minutes from order to served), good option for take out if room service is busy Cons: limited selections, mostly unhealthy American style
