Our second time around was even better than the first. Waitress Danielle was great: personable and on top of service. The menu was on the innovative side and delicious. Setting is cozy/smalllish, but comfortable and private. It's a noisy house on a weekend night, but...More

231 is close to home and one of our favorites to take guests. The drinks are delicious. It's upscale and the menu has something for all palates.

I’ve had brunch at 231 several times. The Salmon and Crab Benedict is phenomenal, and the potato cakes are very tasty. Their menu offers a number of delicious options and it changes weekly. The service is extremely good.

Home 231 is my one must-visit restaurant during my annual family visits in Harrisburg. The bloody marys alone will keep me returning. Food-wise, I have only been for lunch, but I've never had a disappointing meal after at least 3 times eating there. The butternut...More

In our opinion, the new bartender that has only been doing bartending for three weeks had some customer service issues, there were four of us sitting at the bar for drinks and dinner, he only addressed by eye contact one person every time, literally only...More

I enjoy this restaurant and would say it is one of my top 5 favorites in Harrisburg. It's a small place, which is great for conversation. You get a surprising amount of food for the price. The food is well-made and the drinks are good...More

We go to Harrisburg specifically for this restaurant. The roasted turkey sandwich is absolutely amazing. The staff has always been extremely friendly. Can't wait until the next time we pass through

I don't believe they have a separate menu, I think it is more of an adult atmosphere, but that is just my opinion.
