Went here with family for lunch and I had the Apple Harvest Salad and a small sundae - they have a combo deal with certain items. Food and service was good, would come back in the future.

Don’t pay for the over priced breakfast at Hershey Lodge - Friendly‘s is tight across the secret, and is delicious! We were in and out in 45 minutes with full tummies (and happy wallets). The wait staff is quick and get your food fast -...More
