Where to drink and dine outside in Harrisburg & Hershey

Remember when it snowed a lot this past winter? Yeah, that sucked. If you’re like us, you probably thought to yourself with each thrust of the shovel, “Why can’t it just be summer already?” (And if you’re like us, there were probably a few expletives peppered in there, too…) Well it isn’t summer quite yet, but, darn it, it’s close enough, meaning it’s time to put your money where your inner dialogue was and get you outside!

As in years past, we’ve done our due diligence in calling up every bar and restaurant in the region with a deck, patio, rooftop, biergarten, sidewalk seating – anything that allows you to eat and drink under the sun, moon and stars. See below for details on where to dine and drink outside in the Harrisburg / Hershey region.
