Good happy hour or lunch spot

Sturges is conveniently located or any of the large government buildings on Forster Street in Harrisburg. It is a frequent place for an after work happy hour or a group lunch. The beer selection is good, and the food menu has a lot of options, even a good number for a vegetarian like myself. I... read more

The Sturges Speakeasy Lots of wood floors, walls, black drunk rails. More of a tavern feel than a speakeasy. Music fits--jazz. Great crowd even on a weekday. Several tvs tuned to sports. I took a seat in cozy far back of the dining area where I could get in a little people watching. The Sturges Speakeasy is generally younger crowd,... More

We were a group of 10 (made reservations in advance), meeting here a day after Christmas. The restaurant made the entire upstairs room available for our group so we had lots of room to move around and socialize during our family reunion. Our waitperson was very patient and attentive and gave us lots of time for our celebration. Sturges' has... More

Nice enough but lacking in details and quality. Went on weekday at lunch. Slow service led to cold entrees and cold fries and long waits. Food was too salted. Maybe better in evening?

I've eaten here twice and both times the food was very good. I think they even have a rooftop bar! The seating on the 2nd floor can be a little tight, but the food made up for it!

After moving from New England 15 years ago, I have been on a NATIONWIDE quest for the New England Fish & Chips I grew up on. Who knew I would find it in Harrisburg, Pa. at a Pub? I checked the menu before going and saw a low key menu choice of Cod and House cut fries. I have been... More

Nice selection on the menu. When you consider the location, quality and quantity of the food, I would consider it a reasonable value. I definitely will visit again when in town. Although the downstairs is close quarters, the general atmosphere was very comfortable.

Came in for a late dinner a few weeks back. Bar staff and waiter were prompt to help me out. Friendly and ontop during the whole visit. Ordered a Manhattan Speak Easy Style. Asked for suggestions and ended up with the peanut butter, bacon, and grape jelly brisket burger (PBBJ) served with a side of choice. Drink was stiff like... More
