HERSHEY, PENNSYLVANIA was originally built for workers in the Hershey chocolate factory, and it’s now frequented by flocks of families visiting the amusement park or by spa-goers looking for specialty treatments. But there’s more to Hershey than roller coasters and chocolate mud wraps.
Inside Hershey Lodge, the interior of the restaurant features exposed wood beams in the high loft ceiling, and there’s a prix-fixe menu with an appetizer, entrée, and dessert for $25. I skipped over the main dishes and went straight for the dessert – chocolate mousse parfait and lemon ricotta cheesecake – since if you skip the entrée, you have to get two desserts, right?
The wine list is fairly extensive with options by the glass and by the bottle, so if you want a $265 bottle of Opus One Meritage from Napa Valley or a $7 glass of Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais from France or something in between, you’re set.
During the summer, you can dine outside on the patio.
