Published: July 25, 2013 at 8:58 AMI was wondering if the place was gutted and given a new look or if the name and menu were the only things changed. When we visited the old resturant it was a little dated. Also how was the service?
Published: July 25, 2013 at 9:08 AMThe food looks a little underwhelming for a table service restaurant. If I'm ordering a sandwich from a table service menu, I would at least expect it to be served with fries or a hot side that requires a fork, not potato chips.
We typically eat at the kosher stand in the park or just go out to Red Robin (less than a mile away) when we're at Hersheypark. I know some people really like the food here (lots of diversity), but I've just rarely find myself eating in this park. Perhaps it's the seemingly unending choices and the indecision that they invoke. Perhaps it's the proximity of restaurants to the park's front gate. You can be riding Skyrush one minute, and 15 minutes later can be sitting down at a restaurant outside the park.

I don't like the traditional American/Cheez Wiz. I prefer mozzarella, or provolone if the mozzarella is not available. I also don't get peppers, onions, or anything else (yeah, I'm weird..I don't even put anything on hot dogs.) When I got it, I asked for mozzarella and was accommodated. It really was a terrific sandwich, one of the better cheesesteaks I've had, and one of the better sandwiches I've had at a park.
Published: July 25, 2013 at 8:58 PMThe fried chips were the "House Signature"-designated side, so I selected them over the French fries, cole slaw or onion rings also presented as options. I found it a little curious that none of the chocolate items, such as the salad or burger, were listed as Signature choices. Anyway, we ended up going to that Red Robin across the street for dinner, and everyone enjoyed it. Ultimately, if I were to do lunch at Hersheypark again, I'd probably opt for the food court at Hershey's Chocolate World instead.
