Crab cakes were not fresh and mostly filler. Lima beans came to table mixed with peas. Disappointing. Too expensive for the quality.

This restaurant is consistently rated a top destination-but I just can't see it. We go back periodically just to make sure we aren't being unfair in our judgement and it is always the same. If you aren't a regular-on a first name basis with the waitresses, who have been there for decades-you will get short shrift and little attention. Food... More

The Progress Grille has been named to the best restaurant list in Harrisburg for many years. It's a traditional menu with excellent quality. Its been a place where we go for special occasions. We have never been disappointed. Nice atmosphere and good service. Go, you won't be disappointed!

Progress Grill has been in business for years. It is one of the most consistent restaurants in the area. The food is always freshly prepared and excellent. The menu is mostly American, but includes several Greek items since the owners are Greek. For dessert, don't miss the Baklava which is to die for. The restaurant is dimly lit and cozy.... More

Have been here on many occasions both for business and family . Never have had a bad meal . I like the seafood best but never had a complaint from anyone on anything else either . Nice atmosphere , great service . Parking is in the back with many stairs . The prices are above average but not too much... More

People rave about the Progress Grill, and I really don't get it. The food is ok, but nothing that you couldn't get in 10 other restaurants in the Harrisburg area. When the original owners, Chuck and Evie Schmidt owned this bar/restaurant, the food was fantastic. The ambience is very nice, but frankly the food is just run of the mill.

I love this restaurant. The steaks are great and the service is friendly. You can dress up or dress casual. The food is worth the price.

We have enjoyed the delicious cuisine here for more years than I care to say, lol. We have our favorite dishes, of course, and are never disappointed . Progress Grill is simply one of those places not to be missed when dining in Harrisburg.

The Progress Grill has been a favorite of ours for decades. They are an upscale fine dining establishment and are known far and wide for their crab cakes. They are a favorite place for special occasions as my wife and I are both hooked on their crab cakes as I mentioned. Their service is impeccable and the atmosphere is friendly.... More
