While staying at the Hershey Lodge for two nights last weekend, we had the opportunity to dine in two of their restaurants. We had breakfast at Lebbie Lebkicher's right off the lobby, and the chef came out to tell us what was gluten free. They made our son gluten free chocolate chip pancakes that looked almost identical to the "regular" chocolate chip pancakes (so much so that we kept verifying they were GF!). Their hash browns and breakfast meats are gluten free, and they also have omelettes, eggs, and fruit. There is no gluten free menu, per se, but it's high-service (like Disney World), where they come to talk to you before you place your order and are very careful about the needs of their gluten free diners. Our son loved his pancakes -- and loved being able to eat (nearly) the same thing as his ice hockey teammates at his table!

We also found out that the Cocoa Beanery cafe in the lobby had gluten free bread for sandwiches, and two days in a row we ordered our son a turkey sandwich for lunch. We personally witnessed the care they took to prepare it in an area free from cross contamination (they cleaned ever surface of the counter first, wore gloves, etc.). Very impressive -- and a sign of good training. These were the two most casual restaurants at the hotel, so you can bet their other three restaurants (The Hershey Grill, The Forebay, and The Bears' Den) would take their gluten free diners' needs just as seriously.

The Cocoa Beanery also had the best hot cocoa (also gluten free) that I've ever had (go figure!).

The lodge dining room was great. I made a reservation in person the night before and the Host even recalled my G-F request the next night when we arrived for dinner. The Sous Chef prepared a non- menu item for me, Shrimp over sauted rice. Thanks to those at Hershey resorts my visit was diet friendly.
