We have eaten at Harrisburg Family for years and are always disappointed that they seem to "pre-close" their kitchen starting about an hour before closing time. In order to do that, the french fries, fried squash. Basically anything fried tastes like it has been sitting under a warming light so it is greasy and only warm. It should be their... More

I'm so glad Harrisburg Family has recovered from their fire; the food is just as good as ever! Brought my daughter & my picky nephew here for lunch over the holidays; both were very happy with their meals. Chicken & rice soup very good, along with the shrimp & fries. Glad it's back open!

Was a decent visit. Have lived in the area many years and had never been so we gave it a try. Tons of options. Decent portion sizes and decent service. Overall not too bad of a stop. Was very busy when we went. Waited over 30 minutes. Honestly didn't feel it deserved that much of a wait.

Popular - Had to wait about 10 mins to be seated at 1:30. Food and service are both good and prices very reasonable. I will return when passing.

After 5 months of being closed due to a devastating fire, our favorite restaurant is open once again. Not only are they in business again but re-opened with a beautiful remodel into a more stylish and classy restaurant both inside and out. They have not missed a beat as most of the staff has returned and the food as good... More

I've been going to Harrisburg Family House over the past year and it continues to be one of my go-to lunch break spots during the work week. They have a pretty good lunch selection and even better desert options on display that taunt customers as soon as they walk in. The Family House has been conducting renovations lately and the...

Being originally from New York I was unprepared for the lack of diner options her in Charlotte. Not sure if the Harrisburg family restaurant but it does have the refrigerator with the revolving cakes and the huge and varied menu. I won't say it's the best food I've ever tasted but it is really good. The portions are very generous... More

They had a very good breakfast special with coffee 2 eggs, a meat, grits, toast for less than $5. Also the cornbread and greens,... More
