Six of us went before a show in Harrisburg and enjoyed The Firehouse. The service was very good. It was hopping there and the manager stopped by our table asking how everything was. I had the Phoenician Baked Trout for $22.99. It was a farm raised rainbow trout in kosher salt. It's an ancient and natural cooking method and was... More

We made reservations for lunch - a group of 8 - on a Tuesday afternoon. Typical lunch time - just after 12. They seated us immediately but then sat two additional large groups upstairs with us. From there the service went downhill. There was not enough wait staff to handle three large groups, took a long time to order and... More

I loved Firehouse. It was one of my fave downtown spots to eat in Harrisburg. Until new management supposedly took over. Everything went downhill. The service was awful. The wait for the food to arrive at our table was ridiculous (it was lunchtime and not crowded.) And when the food arrived, it was cold. Unfortunately, I refuse to go back.... More

We've been to the Firehouse several times, and it's always been a great experience. They have a very interesting and diverse menu, with entrees in the $10-20 range. Food is always hot and made to order. Service is prompt and very friendly. The atmosphere is active, but not too noisy for intimate conversation. They have a full bar. I always... More

Had dinner here with my wife early on a Monday night. Since it was Monday it was a pretty quiet night there, a few people at the bar and a few diners. Nice atmosphere, old firehouse with original tin ceilings and unique tin walls. Upon entering there is a triangular bar against the front window that was the front garage... More

I would eat a steak there as much as possible. Excellent service, and their other dishes are excellent too but it will be hard for me to divert.

While driving across the state we were in need of a good meal and had not eaten all day. It was 4pm and we were ready for dinner. We ordered the calamari which was tender and served with a typical marinara sauce that was just okay, but worked. We ordered the filet mignon topped with crab cakes in a hollandaise... More

Keeping with my theme of trying non-chain restaurants and supporting SMB friends recommended Firehouse and I thoroughly did enjoy my meal. It's not super fancy or pretentious. They just provide very decent food and a fun environment to meet, eat, drink and be merry. I looked that this and about (4) other places to decide on dinner but I can... More

I went to the Firehouse this past Saturday for a date. The food was great. I had the scallops and my date had the crab cakes. We were both very pleased with our selections. Our server was quite another story. Every time she came to the table she referred to us as "you guys" which got annoying very quickly. We... More

I've eaten here several times through the years and I can't remember ever having a bad meal. Interesting atmosphere. Apparently it was an old fire station and is themed that way. Good meals I've had are the Cajun pasta, steak and calamari salad, sea bass, and trout. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant.
