We've been to the Firehouse a handful of times since we've been in Harrisburg this past year. All of those times the food has been consistently good. There isn't an entree we've tried that was not tasty. However, the last 2 visits, both this month and at lunch time, are what prompted the review. Our service has not only been... More

While staying and working in Harrisburg for several weeks, I was underwhelmed by the myriad of mediocrity in the restaurant choices. Firehouse rescued me with a refreshing menu that included unique appetizers, a wide selection of fresh fish and seafood dishes and well as some land lover's choices of beef, chicken, and pasta dishes. The meals were well presented and... More

We stopped in Harrisburg, PA for the night on our way to NYC. We came to Firehouse for dinner that night. My husband and I split a couple appetizers and found the food and service were great! I would definitely recommend Firehouse to those visiting Harrisburg. I love that they refurbished the old firehouse into a restaurant.

Firehouse is a must-try. First, it's in a great location: a real former fire station. The decor is a bit intense at first, but fascinating once you realize it's all genuine. Then, there's the great service: attentive and knowledgeable. Finally, there's the food. Excellent pricing (the prime rib at $21 was a genuine bargain) and tasty. The cranberry walnut salad... More

Had the cedar plank salmon, garlic filet mignon, seafood linguine, and prime rib. Started with the crab fondue which was gone in seconds! My teenagers loved it and they aren't seafood lovers. Everything we had was very good. The servers were attentive and quick and remembered our order perfectly without writing it down. Atmosphere was very cool!

We went to the Firehouse Restaurant based on their past reviews on tripadvisor. Everything that was mentioned was right on. We ordered the sea salt encrusted trout (one of their signature dish) and stayed away from the steaks. The ribs were fantastic - not too dry and not too sloppy. My friend wanted a full rack of rib instead of... More

This was one of our favorite places. We had to move away, so we had the chance to return this past week. The owners have changed hands now, and the quality of food has gone downhill along with the service!! The calamari was breaded nicely, but was tasteless and over cooked. Then I ordered my absolute FAVORITE entree, the Phoenician... More

First of all the decor is awesome....very elaborate tin designs. Second of all, the staff was great. Our waiter put up with our multitude of questions because we could not decide...everything sounded so good. I finally decided on the Firehouse Melt and it was one of the best sandwiches I have ever had! Roasted turkey, provolone and cheddar cheese, bacon,... More

We had a really great meal at this restaurant. Wonderful service, quiet atmosphere (5pm on a Saturday) and gorgeous food. I ordered the sea salt encrusted rainbow trout, not knowing it was one of their most popular dishes. When it came out I was blown away- it really was covered in salt! The waitress opened up the crust for me... More
