Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Hershey & Hummelstown

Fenicci’s of Hershey is a downtown Hershey tradition for generations of families looking for comforting and hearty Italian food in a family-friendly atmosphere.

Enjoy a quick breakfast or lunch at Phillip Arthur’s Café, whose menu includes sandwiches, pizza, and old-fashioned ice cream. Immerse the family in Hershey Bears® ice hockey at The Bears’ DenSM, a casual restaurant styled to resemble a hockey arena! When in Hershey, you must always save room for dessert!

Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Harrisburg


Harrisburg has an assortment of upscale restaurants for date night, but also plenty of places for the family to enjoy a meal. The Millworks, a farm-to-table restaurant in Midtown, provides kids with a small tub of molding dough to keep them occupied until the food arrives. At this sustainable restaurant, you’ll find healthy options for children, including free-range chicken nuggets and grilled cheese made with wheat bread and local cheese. If you’re visiting City Island, choose a deli sandwich and fries at Café Huey with some hand-dipped Turkey Hill Ice Cream over at the Water Golf course.
