Great food

Great food. Great atmosphere. I enjoy the season changing menu and the fact that it is farm to table.

The food was excellent! A wonderful treat for a special meal. Only problem is the lack of space. You are dining with everyone else, it is very crowded.

My wife and I were recently in Harrisburg on business and decided to try Home 231 for dinner. The restaurant was not crowded on a Thursday evening and we were quickly seated and found the restaurant nicely decorated and quite comfortable. Our server was attentive and we quickly had drinks on the way and found the menu eclectic and broad... More

Home 231 does one thing very well, they know how to consistently exceed your expectations. From using quality ingredients to infusing inspiring flavors, you will be taken for an amazing ride. The soups are excellent, all the main plates that I have tried are delicious. Had the braised short ribs on my last visit which was cooked to perfection. My... More

After decades of dining in the Harrisburg/Hershey area, I find Home 231 consistently one of the best restaurants in the Harrisburg/Hershey area..... I'm particularly impressed with the beet salad with grilled chicken. Staff is profession and appropriately attentive, not too much, just right. Parking used to be challenging but even that is easy-as-pie now.

From the moment we drove past this gem while looking for another recommendation, we were hooked. Friendly, accommodating staff, a wonderful patio with ample space to unwind, take a drink, enjoy a meal... a fantastic meal. Service was outstanding, every course had ample selections of fresh, locally sourced options. The dessert was amazing, but we couldn't finish it... too big!... More

Excellent for dinner or brunch. We have been here many times and selections are always changing. The service is always good and informative. If you like to do Sunday brunch this is the place.

Absolutely loved Home 231! Quaint set up, small restaurant. The cast iron cornbread is a must! Grilled octopus was delicious! Tempura vegetables were out of this world!!! I would eat here again in a heartbeat!!!

Fun place to go, particularly in the warmer months when you can sit outside in the courtyard. From there you can look up at the dome of the cathedral. No, it's not Florence, but with the brick patio, brick wall, a view of the dome, and a nice glass of wine with a small plate, you can let your mind... More
