    NOT CELIAC FRIENDLY!!! We decided to try this place based on the positive reviews, boy was that a big mistake!! Never again!!! My daughter is a Celiac and has been for 7 years, we spoke to the chef prior to ordering and explained everything. About 1hr after she ate her meal she showed major signs of being glutened!! My poor child was in pain for 4 days!!!

    Ordered a grilled cheese with french fries and loaded nachos for the table! The nachos were super yummy! Everything was really good and the decor was pretty awesome as well! I felt completely safe about not getting sick and the staff was very informed and willing to help. The grilled cheese wasn't my personal favorite making it a 4/5 but I'd definitely go again!

    Absolute best Gluten Free dinning experience ever. The chef came out to speak with us and he was so nice. We were visiting Hershey and I saw the other reviews on this site so we had to check it out. These other reviews were right on and I wish I lived closer and wasn't just on vacation. The Gluten Free fryer where my kids could get chicken fingers and French fries made them so happy!!!! My husband & I had burgers the buns were so I delicious I had to ask the chef what company they were so I could try to find them online. Hoping we get to go back before the weekend ends. Definitely worth trying when you are in the area.

    I recently stayed at the Hershey Lodge for a conference. We were free on Saturday afternoon to do lunch on our own and a group of us chose the Bears Den. I asked the waitress about GF options, she pleasantly replied "no problem, we've got you covered! We have bread, rolls, and can even do GF chicken fingers and our fries are done in a dedicated fryer, so pretty much any sandwich and burger can be done!" I ordered a grilled cheese with fresh mozzarella, basil and tomato and fries, DELICIOUS! All others in our group enjoyed their lunch as well.

    As others have described, a great and comforting experience. The waitress was knowledgeable, but as matter of course they bring out the chef to discuss GF options with you. We shared loaded nachos, and then had a burger and fries from a dedicated fryer. We were very pleased with the experience!

    Felt as safe here as at Disney. Chef came out to table to speak with us. Dedicated fryer. Sports themed bar setting with amazing burgers, fries, chicken tenders, nachos, etc. we had burger on amazing GF bun, daughter had gF chicken tenders, we loved the GF fries. Home made salad dressings so she could get a Dairy Free dressing option.. Great spot.

    The staff takes great precautions, and the chef comes out to speak with you when you mention gluten free/celiac. My kids were thrilled to have a hamburger on an actual bun.
