We've eaten there a number of times and never left disappointed. The food is not fabulous, but it's good. The prices are reasonable too, especially for being located just off I-81. Don't feel like cooking tonight and just need to relax? Hershey Road Family Restaurant is your place to go.

Stopped at the Hershey Road Family Restaurant for some quick lunch as I was headed to the casino at Penn National Race Course. Great cup of seafood chowder coupled with a fresh, hot order of french fries almost filled the bill. Followed that with a wonderful piece of coconut meringue pie. YUMMY

Nice staff, but just cheap diner food. We stopped on a road trip but wish we had gone elsewhere. OK if that's the only choice.

Can't improve on a delicious lunch. Coffee, cottage cheese, cucumber and onion salad, BLT...all great. Server was very pleasant and attentive. Place (including facilities) was clean and neat. Will definitely add to our list of travel stops.

Every time I visit Hershey Family Restaurant, I am greeted with a smile; very nice and friendly staff. I am always seated immediately, and I love the quiet atmosphere. I never like eating in an establishment that plays loud music. Hershey Restaurant appears to be very clean and that I can appreciate. Food is great; doesn't matter what you order.... More

A diner, pure and simple. Staff were exceptionally friendly. More than adequate choice of items on menu. Large servings at a reasonable price. What more can you ask for? Received discount for staying at a local hotel. Look forward to our next meal there.

I was impressed by the quality and portions provided at this restaurant. It's clean and our server was polite and prompt. Great value for your money. This will not break the budget, especially for those families who are traveling. Easy on/off the highway, too.

This a diner so if you're looking for 5 star, farm to table, keep driving. We stayed at the LaQuinta next door and it filled the bill after driving 550 mile & we appreciated the short walk to have dinner. Lots of comfort food - dinner specials at a very reasonable price, friendly wait staff, gluten free options and a... More

I stopped here based on the recommendation of the hotel at which I was staying. Service was prompt and courteous. The menu was standard diner fare (breakfast, sandwiches, and dinners that focused on mainly Italian dishes) However, the daily specials were more PA Dutch/German based. I wasn't sure about ordering something that different from their main menu fare, but I... More
