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.

We stopped after a day/evening at Hershey Park, wanting to eat before our long drive home. For a diner, the menu was not up to par. I ordered the roast beef club, it was not up to an acceptable standard. The tomato's were anemic having...no color and tasteless. The roast beef had no flavor and was stringy. I was very disappointed in the sandwich. We also ordered the "senior" turkey dinner with stuffing, mashed potatoes, and salad. The turkey was tasteless. Appeared to not be a fresh made oven roasted turkey. Asked for a little extra gravy for the mashed potatoes, which did not come. The gravy tasted like a canned product. We were very disappointed in both meals. When paying the gentleman at the register, did not engage in any conversation: he did not ask about the meal or service. Just took the cash and made change. We will not return. On a positive note the waitress was nice and friendly.More

I had planned to eat at a Chinese buffet or restaurant after leaving Hershey Park, but one had gone out of business and the other was a small take out place. I stopped here after seeing it earlier and it turned out to be a...very good restaurant. My first impression when walking in was it was more of a typical family style restaurant like Shoney's, but it is much more upscale with a good variety of reasonable priced steaks and seafood. I had the crab cakes which were OK but a bit dry and didn't have much crab in them. The dinner salad was huge and the baked potato with butter and sour cream was good. There were lots of people eating around 8pm on a Wednesday and the menu was extensive. The one thing that was a bit of a turn off was the elderly person at the register. When a couple was leaving and paid their check, he asked them about leaving a tip. The couple said they had left it on the table. I guess now days it's part of your bill to pick the amount you want to leave as a tip when paying, but it seemed a bit tacky to me to ask your patrons for a tip. Tips are based on the service you receive (mine was excellent and the young waiter was hard working), but people will tip if they choose to, I don't think they should be asked if they tipped or how much.More

We stopped on our way to Hershey park. The food was alright. The service was quite deplorable. We waited forever for food and then watched employees stand around and chat while we waited for our check.

The waitress saved this from being a one-star review. While she was attentive, polite, and professional, everything else was not. Grumpy hostess was neither polite welcoming us or upon leaving. Breakfast bacon was barely cooked and the eggs and toast were mildly warm. Better experience...down the road at the Soda Jerk Diner.More

On a recent family trip to Hershey park we stopped by this diner for dinner. The wide selection of food on the menu is amazing - Italian, Greek, Seafood , 24 hr breakfast - you name it! I had the chili and Greek salad -...both were great. My wife had their eggs Benedict, and my kids had chicken fingers and cheeseburger. The food was served very promptly - everyone was happy. We tried another diner in the area on our trip but returned here for a second visit as we loved it so much. Their chili was the best!More

Went for breakfast before visiting Hersheypark. Average diner with yummy food! I ordered Eggs Benedict (delicious) and a side of Biscuits and Gravy (different but good). My boyfriend ordered an omelette which he enjoyed.

Heard of something called scrapple that people in this area like, well I tried it, NOT SO MUCH. It was tasteless and the texture was gross. LOL But the rest of our breakfast was hot and delicious. Our young waitress was a delight. She had...a great sense of humor.More

Beware of price add-ons! Disappointed in the lack of transparency in prices on the menu. My husband and I ordered omelets, and they asked for type of cheese. We each gave our choices, got our bill, and found they charge an extra $1.50 for it....We were asked if we'd like onions with our home fries. Thinking they'd be sauteed in, we said yes. They came with a HUGE pile just sitting on top. The kids ordered juice; there was no indication of size, but we were charged for a large even though they were in small Styrofoam cups. We know things are tight, and because of that, we enjoy patronizing locally owned restaurants. I just wish they'd have been straightforward in their pricing on their menus or upon ordering. The food was ok. I think we'll choose other diners in the area the next time we visit.More

The Cocoa Diner is conveniently located minutes away from many of the highlights in Hershey, PA. The menu offers a lot of variety for a fair price. Upon our arrival, we were promptly seated and given a menu. It did not take long for the...hot food to be served. When in the area again, we shall return. The desserts looked delicious.More
