Best - wonderful omelet station, homemade granola, hot chocolate, friendly service Could have been better - traditional bacon was undercooked, turkey bacon looked inedible So I enjoyed it on the first morning and chose to look for an alternative the next day.

The food at the Circular's Sunday breakfast buffet was fresh and delicious and the wait-staff was top notch. The price was a little salty but worth it.

Hi the reviews seemed so mixed that for the price we almost chose somewhere else, however, everything was delicious and we are really glad we went. We each had a drink, I had two appetizers for dinner, my husband ordered a $40 ribeye and we had 4 sides, but skipped dessert. Our bill was about $115, but we felt super... More

The Hershey Hotel is a special place and The Circular is no exception. This type of exceptional fine dining is harder and harder to find in America. This place harkens to a time when people would slow down, dress up, and enjoy a fine bottle of wine and a great meal. We enjoyed our food and the staff. Joseph and... More

The Circular in the Hotel Hershey is one of our favorite places to eat in Hershey. I recommend the lunch which is buffet style with an enormous variety of foods. We will go there to celebrate because it is rather pricey. Call ahead for a reservation and ask for a window seat. The atmosphere and views are so beautiful.

We were seated at 830pm. The restaurant was not full. Maybe 60%. It took an hour to get our soup. We almost cancelled the next app we we're splitting, since it was another 15 mins later. Our main courses arrived well after 10pm. My wife's steak was luke warm. We were too tired and hungry to send it back. The... More
