All three of us enjoyed our stop over meal. They know how to treat the seniors. There is a great selection of main course and desserts. Too bad it was just a town we drove through.

We stopped for lunch while headed to Lemoyne. Unfortunately the Hershey Park Zoo had a free visit day so it was quite full especially with kids. They seemed to be a bit understaffed as there were many open tables but slow to seat people. They had one young lady taking the names, seating people and helping to clean tables.The food... More

My daughter and I decided to have lunch here. When the waitress came over I immediately informed her of my daughters black pepper allergy and I asked what on the menu doesn't have pepper. She checked with the cook. We ordered the reuben. Again we told the waitress and verified the cook knows of the allergy. When my daughter got... More

The service is usually slow to get food, but when they are busy....just don't go! You can make you own food faster! Sometimes the restaurant is clean and sometimes not! You never quite know what you'll find!

We recently ate at the Friendly's restaurant near the Reese's factory in Hershey, PA. Usually we enjoy eating at Friendly's and we were all excited to eat here. But our excitement soon soured.

This Friendlys as others has definitely taken a step down. How lame that by 9:30 at night you are told one of their soups is all sold out. It was much better in the past. We come here every year and we could see the change. And not for the better.
