Outdoor Eateries in Hershey, PA

Today marks “National Picnic Day” but if you’re not one for picnic baskets and checkerboard blankets, you can still enjoy outdoor dining! Six of our Hershey, PA eateries have patios and are open through the end of the summer season. Bonus: Devon Seafood + Steak is wrapping up construction and will soon have a patio as well! Click here for more details.

Do you have tickets to see a show at Hershey Theatre? Dine at Houlihan’s beforehand and share a few apps on the patio. Complimentary parking is available in the garage in downtown Hershey, PA. Leave your car and walk across Chocolate Avenue – the Theatre is just a five-minute walk away!


For a quick stop, visit the Cocoa Beanery on Research Boulevard. Grab an iced coffee and breakfast or light lunch fare and relax. Pro tip: the patio at The Cocoa Beanery is dog-friendly, so you can bring your furry friend after a walk on the nearby trails.

To the side of The Hotel Hershey’s Veranda is Trevi 5. Sip on an Italian Manhattan and enjoy house-made pasta on the patio. On Fridays in the summer, pop over to Jazz on the Veranda for a fun evening with local musicians.

Another option at The Hotel Hershey is Harvest, our farm-to-fork restaurant featuring local and regional ingredients. After you dine on the patio, work on your short game at the Hotel’s 18-hole grass putting course.


Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner al fresco at Hershey Grill, located at Hershey Lodge. It won’t take much convincing make breakfast plans for the Grill once you see the below picture. Three words: S’mores French Toast.

Located above the main lobby at Hershey Lodge is The Forebay, a dinner-only restaurant serving creative and regionally inspired comfort food. Sip on a Hershey’s Kisses Signature Chocolate Martini while enjoying the secluded patio. Chocolate isn’t just for cocktails and desserts in Hershey, PA. Try the Cocoa and Coffee Rubbed Smoked Short Rib.
