Not sure what were we getting into. The menu looked a little complicated but everything we ordered was very good. A bit pricey. Italian wedding soup, Caesar salad, calamari, chicken, steak, rice, chocolate cake all was very good. Looked like a very nice bar/lounge being enjoyed by lots of different folks.

When you walk into a dirty outdated Howard Johnson the least thing you expect is good quality food.

Yet this place proves you wrong. Food is unbelievably delicious. Tuna tartar and cheese platter is amazing. Even fried calamari are soft and tender.

Staff is courteous and friendly.
Highly recommend

Really enjoyed the food at What If. While it is the basement of a Howard Johnsons, the restaurant/bar are worth the visit. Nice bar to enjoy drinks and dinner, lollypop lamb chops were amazing.....wife had linguine with clams, I had chicken parm......delicious, definitely worth check out.

Awesome happy hour - drinks and menu! Bartender Sean is the best - everything you’d want in a bartender...friendly, welcoming and genuine!

This restaurant is located in the basement of the Howard Johnsons Motor Lodge reception building. Walking in, all I could smell was that nasty cleaning fluid in the main lobby. Head down the stairs and behind the doors, and you enter an entirely new world - one with linen white table clothes, cool vibe decorations, and a very good service staff. We needed to be in and out in an hour - and our server made sure that happened! Chicken dishes were both well presented and tasty. Salads were fresh and looked amazing. Quantity of food was appropriate for the pricing. Overall, a very wonderful dinner out. I strongly recommend What If of Hershey!
