This is a typical meat-and-three type family restaurant that dots the south. The food was good and the portions were generous. I had the sirloin and my wife had the sirloin tips and both were very good . They were very tender but could have used a little more seasoning. The service was a bit slow and the staff bussing...

You know it's a good sign when there's a wait to be seated for lunch! I had the pork tips with green peppers and onions over rice and fried squash. Absolutely delish! Reasonably priced and good service!

While staying in the area I drove past the Harrisburg Family House on several occasions. Each time the parking lot was full. In my experience, this usually is indicative of a very good restaurant. So I looked it up on TA and reading the many glowing reviews -- I decided to try it. What a disappointment! I ordered the turkey... More

While visiting family here, we went for breakfast on Saturday morning. I ordered the 2-egg breakfast with bacon, hash browns and biscuit with added gravy. The eggs, hash browns were cooked just the way I like, the biscuit was the best I've ever had in a restaurant. The sausage gravy was also very good.

Awesome food and plenty of it. I always end up taking home a to go box. Lots to choose from on the menu and I must mention how friendly the staff is. Highly recommended. Check it out for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

My wife and I, along with a couple of friends had supper here tonight. We were seated quickly, but from what I am told, you can expect a wait on busy nights. All the food was good with large portions at a decent price.

When you walk through the door, you'll start to get an impression of why I wrote this review. The place is ALWAYS PACKED with locals. There's nothing fancy about the restaurant, it's nice - don't get me wrong - but what sets this place apart is that they excel at food and service. If you've read my other reviews, you... More

Today we visited this restaurant for an early dinner. The menu was so large that we had a hard time deciding what to eat. They offer about a dozen daily specials, sandwiches, Italian and Greek dishes and seafood. We have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. My husband chose the half rack of ribs. The serving was huge... More

My daughter drove in from Raleigh to go to a concert at the PNC Pavilion with my wife and I, and as she was coming down 49, we selected the Harrisburg Family House Restaurant as the place to meet and have dinner before the concert. The extensive menu and large number of diners at 4:30 in the afternoon speaks of... More
