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

Met friends traveling from NC to RI. Picked Home 231 based on Trip Advisor reviews. WOW! Ordered too many appetizers. Not only did they disappear but they were so good we couldn't say one was better than the other they were all spectacular. We had focaccia with goat cheese and prosciutto, octopus, deviled eggs and lamb meatballs. For entrees we... More

Started with a melon sangria and cucumber/mint lemonade that were both refreshing. Beautiful wedge salad then chef's choice 6oz filet with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled fresh veggies. Great service and really great place to have dinner.

From the drinks at the bar to the meal to the dessert, everything was wonderful. The bartender was friendly and made great cocktails. The waitress was friendly and well versed in the food and wine choices. We thoroughly enjoyed everything, even the corn ice cream with crumbled bacon!
