Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fun place to eat. We had dinner there. Lots of selections on the menu at reasonable prices. Waitress was fun and efficient. It was clean and popular. Bathrooms were clean. Don't get the sundaes unless you are hungry! 3 huge scoops with all kinds of...toppings. Our burgers and fries were yummy.More

April 30, 2010 was our last visit to this Diner, also after visiting the Hershey Park Gift Shop. This time I got Breaded Veal Parmigiana, salad with Russian Dressing, bread and a sweetened tea, as we drove South to bring my Granddaughter to visit her...Great Grandfather in Florida. The diner has a fun atmosphere, even without waiters dancing on the tables like at Johnny Rocket's.More

We visited this location twice on our trip to Hershey. We came here five years ago and had an okay experience but this time was far better. Both times, we had Tammy as a server. She was very friendly, hospitable, and attentive. Tammy provides an...excellent experience which makes her an asset to this business. For breakfast, my daughter and I split a Banana Nutella French Toast. It was amazing! The French Toast was made on a Challah bread just like the old school diners in New York. It was amazing! I also had sausage which was top quality breakfast sausage and the corned beef hash was a traditional recipe, which I love. Diners in NY usually do not have great coffee but this place has great coffee, I had three cups. The prices are very reasonable and the place is very clean. I recommend The Soda Jerk to anyone looking for a great meal at a great price.More

I found the Soda Jerk Diner on my maps app after our hotel announced a 30+ minute wait for breakfast. I am so happy that we ventured out of the hotel, because the breakfast at the Soda Jerk was amazing. There was no wait, and...we had our food within 10 minutes of walking in the door. The portions are huge, and everything is fantastic. From the sausage gravy to the fluffy French toast to the perfectly crispy bacon, it was all delicious. The menu has a good variety, too; they have five or six different Benedict dishes alone. Best of all, they serve fountain Pepsi products! The wait staff was lovely and the restaurant has a cute 50's vibe. Definitely give this one a try if in the Hershey area, I hope to be able to visit again someday and try the milkshakes.More

This is a great spot for a casual dinner. Hubby had a salmon burger and I had a cheeseburger. Both were delicious! Fries were very good, with unique seasoning. The cheese sticks were great. Cherry pie for dessert, and the black raspberry ice cream was...amazing! It's a must try! The diner is decorated in typical 50's diner style. The menu is varied enough to please most anyone. Highly recommend.More

If you like a nostalgic looking diner this is it. Family stopped in for early lunch and we had great service and food. Typical diner menu with variety of choices listed. For our family of 5 everyone could chose from a breakfast item to dinner...choices. Great place for children too. We did not have milkshakes or desserts but they looked delicious going to different tables. Would highly recommend for families on vacation to Hershey.More
