Chocolate Avenue Grill
After reading overall positive reviews of this establishment and wanting to experience something different than our usual Hershey go-tos, I decided to make a reservation to celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday. There were a total of four of us and upon entering the Chocolate Avenue Grill, I was somewhat disappointed by the diner-type atmosphere. I just had not expected this based on the reviews I read and looking at the menu. In hindsight, however, the variety of the menu should have tipped me off that this was more of a casual restaurant. Our group decided to give it a chance and we were so glad we did! We all started with a round of Yuengling Hershey Chocolate Porters, which were delicious! Two of us ordered the Tuscan Tuna, one ordered Mrs. D's Lasagna, and another ordered Land and Lobster. We were all very satisfied with our meals. The one slice of key lime pie that we all had bites of was a great top-off. Jake, our server, was attentive and patient with us, and made excellent recommendations. Consider this family-friendly location in downtown Hershey!
Don’t remember the exact name but the burger with sautéed onions and bacon, I substituted Gouda for Swiss, was the best burger I’ve ever had!! Cooked perfectly!
Overall good. Food was very good. Rather noisy though. Service was good but not exceptional.
My husband and I enjoyed the osso bucco very much. It was delicious, the service was great. We will definitely be returning.
Thought a burger for $14 was very expensive. It was good but not that good. Service ya always been great.
Birthday dinner for just two of us. Wonderful food and very quiet.
The food is Excellent. I always eat here when in Hershey. They have a great menu and the portions are large.
Great food! We had dinner with our daughter (2) and both sets of grandparents. Perfect environment for all!
Nice place, but small. It looks like theyll be enlarging the property- building it up, since theres no other place to build out. I'd recommend making a reservation.
While the food is prepared to order, I think it's a bit overpriced. They are known for their scallops, but none of our party tried them. The service was good.
Impossible Breakfast Burger
Entree portions are huge - easily enough for 3 adult servings. After having appetizers, bread and salad (which was included with entree), honestly we were stuffed and could barely touch our main courses (rissotos). While the food quality was very good, I would prefer that the portion size be reduced so 1. You have a chance to eat a good bit of it and 2. You don't feel bad leaving so much on the plate as it appears you didn't like the food. We were there from out of town so we really couldnt bring home leftovers for a 2 hour car ride as the food would have spoiled. Other than this we had a very positive experience, our server was very attentive and the ambiance was pleasant, albeit a little crowded in the dining room.
Great food but noisy. Good service. Food is always top drawer.
They ran out of a speciality appetizer yet advertised it to us when they sat us down. Attempted to order a Rose cocktail only to be told later sorry we are out of that as well. I ordered a steak, medium, it was near well done. Would not recommend this restaurant and would not eat here again. The waitress was the only positive thing here, super nice and offered to make a cocktail not on the menu.
Already told our family to go to on their next visit to Hershey. Jake was great. He was busy but was attentive to us and all of his other tables. The entree special was pasta and it was so freaking delicious. I will probably crave that pasta for the rest of my life.
Great every time we go!!!!
Outdoor seating was full, too sunny, noisy with traffic, so we chose to sit indoors - a good decision. Inside was quiet. Server was very attentive. I chose the steak & cake, my wife chose the bistro tender. Both arrived quickly and were both excellent.
Sat outside for lunch and ray took great care of us!!! My favorite lunch spot!
Shrimp, scallop pasta special was outstanding. The filet medalions were not really medalions. They were end pieces. These call for a different kind of cooking to get red m eat with a change of texture (cook longer). Medalions can be fast cooked to get the right texture without being raw.
Service was great, but the maitre de did not communicate to open table that we were there. We got a "missed you" email which we corrected with them. Otherwise great. We will be back
Burger was very good. So are the soups and salads.
Fantastic food. Sat out on the terrace. Our server was great. Will definitely be back.
The crab cakes were the best I have ever had! No bread crumbs. Sautéed with lump crab meat and little filler, so delicious. Coconut risotto was out of this world And Brussels sprouts with pancetta roasted perfectly. Such a great meal. What a terrific chef!
WE had a great waitress that made the night. WE were in the back room and that does not have much ambience, especially in the corner- I did make reservations in advance but saw walk ins get better tables than us four.
Nice you can order your wine by 3 different pours.
Always a good experience. Nice to sit outdoors and enjoy a good meal at a decent price.
I have not been to this restaurant in a number of years, but I remember a more refined menu than what we saw on this trip. There seemed to be more creative offerings in the past, and this time there was an abundance of burgers, wraps and basic sandwiches, with only one special being offered on the night that we were there. My burger was fine (although I asked for a toasted roll and I think they grilled in butter, which I did not care for). The wrap that my co-worker ordered was also fine, but it just was not what we had expected.
Service was fantastic! Our waiter Jake was pleasant, cheerful, informative, and prompt! Food was delicious! We will definitely be coming back!
Food selection was very good. Everything was fresh and tasty. Service was very attentive and fast. Prices tended to be a little high, but this a tourist area. Busy location in the heart of everything. As a result parking might be difficult. Overall very enjoyable.
Excellent food and service. Great menu choices, too.
Always enjoy the Chocolate Avenue Grill. The white chocolate scallops are superb.
Everything was wonderful! Great food and service!
Excellent selection of menu items. Dinner specials always great. Fresh ingredients used and always cooked to perfection. Been going here for 10 years and never had a bad meal. Outdoor seating available. Highly recommend reservations. Gets very busy.
Great service and excellent food.
Enjoyed our dinner so much, went back for lunch next day. Excellent food and nice ambiance inside and on patio. Friendly, efficient waitstaff.
Great food and great service. Menu offers a great variety to fit any budget. Ambiance appears like a renovated fast-food restaurant. Well kept and clean but oddly laid out. Read that they are renovating in Fall 2019 so that may improve the overall look.
Ate outside on a perfect night.... had Salmon and it was delicious.
Delicious food and staff was happy to accommodate special needs.
We were greeted warmly when we arrived. We were seated at a table between the back area and the front area. Our server Naomi was very attentive. We started with the garlic bread and calamari which were delicious but we also ordered the meatballs were unfortunately not very good. They were reheated which was obvious, and not freshly made. They were noticeably hard and lacking in flavor. I would highly recommend that this eatery explore another meatball recipe and make them fresh on a daily basis. We also ordered the Delmonico steak, the traditional burger and the lobster risotto which were all fantastic. Stuffed as we were, we then ordered the key lime pie, the brownie sundae, and the Oreo cheesecake which were also phenomenal. Overall, it was a very nice dinner with great tasting food. The ambiance needs some improvement as well as the meatball appetizer, therefore I gave it a 4/5.
What a wonderful spot. Not only in beautiful Hershey downtown area, but the food was fantastic and the service was the best! Nothing bad to report here 🤙🏻
Waiter was very attentive and pleasant. Food was excellent. The kids menu also offered plenty of healthy options besides chicken fingers!
The food is wonderful. Some very different salads that are amazing! Sandwich with good mixtures of different kinds of condiments. Totally enjoy the food and will be back when I'm in town again.
had a group of 7.. service o.k. but food was not very warm.. no server asked either about the food temp.
