Casual Dining at Hoss's Steak and Sea House Restaurant

Hoss's Steak and Sea House Restaurant in Hummlestown, Pennsylvania
Visiting the Harrisburg or Hershey area? Looking for a casual dining restaurant that's affordable and kid-friendly? If so, we recommend Hoss's Steak and Sea House Restaurant located in Hummelstown. If you're unfamiliar with the area, it's about a 10 minute drive from downtown Hershey and a 20 minute drive from downtown Harrisburg.

One of the things we really like about this restaurant is that they're rarely crowded. You can typically get seated as soon as you walk in the door and within minutes beverages are on your table with the wait-staff waiting to take your order. Next, they offer a lot of different menu items including: steaks, chicken, pasta dishes, fish, seafood, appetizers, hamburgers, and more.

They're one of a few restaurants that are left that still offer an all-you-can-eat salad bar that's complete with a variety of soups, salads, breads, and desserts. The salad bar is included with your entree meal price or you can order it separately. Plus, they keep their salad bar well-stocked and extremely clean.

We quickly placed our order and within 20 minutes it was on our table. The steaks that we ordered were perfectly grilled to our specifications and were delicious! Everything that we tried from the salad bar was good too! All hot food items were hot and all of the cold food items were cold. Our server was attentive and friendly. A perfect dining experience.

During our most recent visit to the Anglesea Pub we enjoyed some great food! My wife ordered chicken fingers & french fries. I enjoyed a Philly cheesesteak and french fries, along with a delicious Rootbeer Float cocktail. Our order was on our table within 20 minutes of placing it. Everything was delicious! Our waitress was very nice and friendly. Refills on beverages were offered in a timely manner and the food wasn't overly expensive.

They offer a full array of domestic and imported beer and wine. If you have small children traveling with you, you'll find a small kid's menu too. If you have any dietary concerns...let the wait staff know before placing your order. They're happy to adjust things to accommodate your needs.

One thing that we really enjoyed about the pub is that it wasn't overly noisy or crowded when we were there. We sat in a booth and enjoyed a good meal. The atmosphere was great!

Thrush's Christmas and Holiday Lights in Harrisburg

Thrush's Christmas Lights in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
During the holiday season our family gets together and goes out to see the Christmas and holiday lights in the central Pennsylvania area. Part of our family tradition is to visit Thrush's Christmas and Holiday Lights in Harrisburg and on a different night we will head down to Hershey Sweet Lights in Hershey. In between those two main attractions we drive around the area just checking out the holiday lights in various neighborhoods that we know have good displays.

If you're unfamiliar with the area you'll find Thrush's Christmas Lights located at 4104 Lisa Drive in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Every year the home owner puts out a huge display of Christmas lights all throughout his property. It's totally FREE to visit and you can visit as often as you would like. You can visit their Facebook page for driving directions and up-to-date attraction information.

As grandparents we like to take our grandchildren out to see the Christmas light displays and always plan ahead for them. I like to pack up snack bags of cookies, popcorn, candies, etc. along with thermal cups of freshly made hot cocoa. We take along a few throw blankets to keep them warm as we often roll down the windows to see the displays. To enhance the mood I recommend turning on some holiday music too!

When visiting Thrush's Christmas Lights, I recommend that you go during a weeknight evening whenever possible. They can get busy during the weekends. You'll want to park on the side of the street and enter the display through their front yard. This is a self-guided walking tour, so feel free to take your time as you walk through.

You'll see all kinds of different holiday displays and twinkling lights! You can tell this home owner really enjoys outdoor inflatables and has a ton of them for you to see! I really like that he's created special "theme" areas as you go along. I adore snowman displays, so I was really excited to see that there were plenty of Snowmen for me to enjoy.

We met the home owner during our tour last year and spent a few minutes chatting with him. You could really tell that he loves Christmas and all of the meaning that goes along with it. On the night that we were there he was outside handing out candy canes to all of the visitors who had stopped by and he (and we) really enjoyed it.

For first time visitors who are bringing children along with them I recommend that you plan on spending at least 30 minutes of time while there. This will allow you all to walk through the displays and take photographs along the way. There is no need for you to rush and there are no set time limits. As a family we enjoy visiting Thrush's Christmas Lights year, after year and it has become an annual holiday tradition.
