The Mill in Hershey – Hershey, PA
Dining here is a unique and memorable experience that combines the charm of the past with the pleasures of a modern dining setting. The architectural beauty of the space adds to the overall dining experience, transporting you back in time and providing a visually captivating backdrop for your meal. The experience was nice and a decent meal. I had pan seared scallops with creamy polenta, sauteed wild mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, leek and onion jam, Smoked Pork Belly, Brussel Slaw, Walnuts, and crispy calamari with Banana Peppers, Shaved Shallots, and Citrus Aioli.
Milton’s Ice Cream Parlor – Hershey, PA
The secret here is freshly made ice cream from local milk that is a delightful treat that offers a unique and delicious experience. I really enjoyed the vanilla bean and milk chocolate with superior creaminess and flavor. Nice experience here and prices reasonable for the quality.
Official BBQ & Burgers/Official Brewing Co. – Harrisburg, PA
Official BBQ & Burgers/Official Brewing Co. is a combined restaurant and brewery that offers a unique dining experience by combining the art of barbecuing and brewing with a rustic and casual atmosphere. It was a nice touch to have the Nintendo available for anyone to play and listening to Greta Van Fleet the entire time I was dining there was fabulous. The barbecue sauces which are many to choose from, rubs, and seasonings you can tell are carefully crafted to enhance the taste of the meats, creating a truly satisfying dining experience. The wings were hands down amazing, mac & cheese was really good and creamy, the black label burger topped with brisket was wonderful and the fries perfect, and the ribs and brisket nachos hit the spot.
Ninh Kieu Restaurant – Annville, Pa
Ninh Kieu Restaurant offers an authentic Vietnamese dining experience, featuring traditional cuisine, a welcoming atmosphere, and a cultural touch. It is a place where guests can savor the flavors of Vietnam, discover new dishes, and appreciate the rich culinary heritage of the country. You can feel the love here and the owners are welcoming you into their life and family with all of the pictures showing you their life around the restaurant. The food here was amazing as well. This place is a gem! I enjoyed every bite of the meal. I had the Goi Cuon Thjt Nuong and Bun Bo with a fresh passion fruit drink. If you are around this area at all you should really try them out.
3B Ice Cream (Derry St.) – Harrisburg, PA
This is a neighborhood ice cream parlor with outdoor seating arrangements and a friendly staff that greets customers with a smile allowing you to relax and enjoy your ice cream. I had the peaches and cream milk shake. They have lots of different flavors and choices to make everyone happy at reasonable prices.
