such a disappointment the food was not good at all. My husband had hair in his soup. Our friends crabcakes looked like pancakes and so fishy. Our server Micheal was good and no it was not his fault. spent so much money for nothing! Won’t...ever eat here again. No management stopped by our table, you would think someone would check on us? disappointingMore

Love the Circular, especially breakfast! However, the cutoff time should be 11:30 instead of 10:30 because people don’t want to rush on vacation, especially on the weekend.

Enjoyed out visit to the Circular. The staff was excellent and the restaurant was well prepared for guests. Very clean and spread out. The food was great as was the service. I could not have asked for more.

Spent two nights at the Hotel recently and had breakfast at the Circular both mornings to minimize exposure. They did a very good job of sanitizing between guests and socially distancing tables. Breakfast was only a la carte; and the menu was somewhat limited. We...have dined there many times over many years. Although the room is truly lovely, the service and food quality has really declined. The room was freezing and the service excruciatingly slow and inattentive. One anticipates an overpriced resort breakfast but not with burnt toast and tepid tea...More

We had breakfast there everyday that we stayed at the hotel. The omlet station was awesome and the staff was all outstanding and ready to help with anything needed. I would highly recommend eating there.

Great breakfast in a lovely setting! We passed on the breakfast buffet and opted to order a la carte. Everything was tasty and perfectly prepared. We particularly enjoyed the omelet and the fruit plate with delicious banana bread. Service was great and all of staff...were friendly and welcoming. A bit on the pricey side, but to be expected for the location.More

What a disappointment. Our cocktail order was incorrect- had to remake. The bread basket was pathetic- small slice of multigrain was so thin- see through. Really? Our chateaubriand was ordered medium and arrived “red”. We were still hungry after our $40 - 6oz chateaubriand, so...we ordered an appetizer. The wrong order arrived!! A flatbread when a “ tater tot “ was ordered. The flat bread was taken back after we each had a slice- then the “tatertot arrived. It was awful. They need to take off the menu. We wished we had requested to keep flatbread. I have been going to Hershey Hotel and spa for years- what a disappointment!!! I was accompanied by a friend who had never been there and was excited to experience. What a let down. Maybe just a bad night.More

We dine at The Circular a few times a year. We have been there for dinner as well as their Sunday Brunch. Tue food preparation and level of service at s what you would expect from the premier Hershey property. You can’t go wrong with...any of the steaks offered on the dinner menu. Not hungry enough to eat a steak, try the burger. I uave never had a bad meal. Need a wine suggestion, ask for Ray, he will not steer you wrong.More

Service was excellent, menu choice for breakfast adequate. The eggs Benedict were delicious but the portion size was underwhelming and I had to order some toast to have a 'real' breakfast. Coffee was very good.

I'm sorry I don't know what the answer to your question. I haven't been to Hershey Park for several years. I recommend restaurants in downtown Hershey.

No, anyone can eat here, as is the case with all the restaurants in the hotel and lodge.
