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

The Firehouse is one of my favorite restaurants in Harrisburg. I have tried many of the different entrees but my favorite (I always end up going back for) is the steak and calamari salad. It is truly the best salad in the Harrisburg area. Plenty of calamari and tons of juicy steak. You really need to try it next time... More

Stellar setting just a block or so from capital. Cool old firehouse with the pole still in the building. Dark colors create an intimate setting. Have been here for dates, bachelorette parties, and Christmas dinner. They do it all and the building is suitable to accommodate any situation. The food and drink are astonishing. Service is wonderful and timely. Visit... More

Went on 3-12-14 for early dinner with teenage daughter. I got the Backdraft chicken sandwich and my daughter got the Backdraft Filet sandwich (medium rare). Both were cooked excellent and tasty. The establishment was clean and amusing in decor. My daughter thought is was really cool. We will definitely be eating there again when we are in town!

The Firehouse is truly an old fire station in downtown Harrisburg which presents a unique atmosphere. Very busy but good food. I was there recently for a business lunch. The service was "OK" but it was crowded. My dining partner laughed at my choice of their tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich but it was exceptional. Good drinks as well.
