The food was bland, boring, and nothing special; absolutely or worth the price! Couple that with the fact that the service stank (1.5 hours for lunch on a weekday ... ridiculous) ... I would not recommend this "trendy" spot.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Harrisburg. The food is a little eclectic, but definitely "farm to table" & the menu changes monthly (maybe more often). Its located in an old inner city home/store & has an urban vibe. There's also a nice patio/courtyard area in the back thats great in warm weather. They have a small lot,... More

Busy place but they respected our reservation and even found an outdoor table for us. Unfortunately there were several bees that kept landing on our food and drinks :( Service was slow. Food was good but none of us were wowed by what we had except the hash browns were fantastic. However one of found a hair in her hash... More

It's the last night of Harrisburg Restaurant Week, we just got home from dinner at Home 231, and all we can do is shake our heads & ask why. Why does this place have so many shining 4 & 5 star reviews when the service, food, & ambience we experienced tonight was completely lackluster? Home 231 earns a single star... More

Friends took us here, saying it was their favorite "date night" restaurant in Harrisburg. We were amazed at the variety and quality of the food we enjoyed. Octopus! Skate wing! the steak was grass-fed! All this in a town that has seen better days... Well, any day that includes a visit to 231 House is a good day.

My wife and I went there for dinner and were extremely pleased. The setting is intimate (great for a date, not so much for kids) and the waitstaff was very courteous and attentive. From the eclectic cocktails through delicious entrées and the enjoyable deserts, I highly recommend this restaurant as it's one of our favorites in Harrisburg.

Wonderful selection of sandwiches and freshly made chips for lunch. The portions were outstanding and the service was prompt and courteous. Very good value. If I return to Harrisburg, I'll be back.

Delicious skillet corn bread. Good food but a couple of the dishes were a little heavy on the salt. Small but acceptable wine list. Beer brined pork tenderloin with an apple bacon jam was juicy and delicious. The duck breast was very tender. Excellent service.

My husband found this quirky little place -- a nice change from the chains we usually wind up at during kids' sporting events. The craft cocktails were delicious and they even whipped up a fresh strawberry lemonade for my son. We shared some small plates -- the chili-dusted octopus was the best octopus I've eaten. Tender and not rubbery at... More
