So is this a dive bar with good food? We live locally and have for years and never ventured in here. You hear both good and just okay comments so we were finally willing to try it for dinner when we saw a parking space available. To me that can be an issue, parking here is limited. You can sit...

I ordered the BBQ Pork sandwich with fries and an order of deep fried pickles. The pickles came out first. Portion was... More

We just stopped by for drinks on a Saturday night so I can't rate the food. The bartender was very attentive and came out from behind the bar to serve us at a table before we could go up and order. It was clean and pleasant inside. It was nicer inside than I expected and had a good mix of... More

Do NOT miss this place if you are in Hershey. The steamed clams are excellent. They have homemade soups and great sandwiches. The staff is pleasant and the service is great. The crabcake sandwich is a great choice. I found this place by accident coming to a seminar in Hershey. I regularly attend the seminar and go to Parkside each... More

The Parkside is a locals' bar in an old historic building, nothing fancy or pretentious. We hadn't been there in quite a while and decided to go the other evening. Friends had told us that they made the best hamburgers, which is the real reason we went. We sat outside and watched traffic as we waited for our burgers and... More

Great bar and restaurant. Very good food, love the crab soup and pit beef sandwich. Fun porch to have a cold one and people/car watch. The Parkside is a landmark for good reason. Very nice staff too. A+++
