Walked in yesterday about 10 min to 1 pm. Quickly decided what we wanted to eat - a reuben and a rachel. Order was placed no later than 1:05, yes, it took that long for someone to get us drinks and come back and take the order. Lunch was FINALLY served at 1:27! By that time my soda was half... More

I love this place. And if it's on the menu, order the swordfish tacos. Yum! The staff is always upbeat and up to speed and I've been there when it was crazy busy and not so much.

I work in Harrisburg, and have heard the same story about the Speakeasy as I experienced today; the food is very delicious, but the service is very, very slow. We got in at 11:30 and didn't get to leave until 1:00. Might not seem like long, but it only took us 15 minutes to eat our food. The rest of... More

The menu consist of bar food and burgers mainly. They do have some different burgers you won't find anywhere else. My personal favorite is the PB&J burger. Sounds just like it is. Peanut butter and jelly on a hamburger with bacon, it's actually quite good. Also the Pittsburger is another good burger that's a little different. You can eat inside... More

Eggs Benedict typically is graced with Canadian Bacon, ham etc. A friend of mine suggested we go there for Sunday Morning Breakfast. The first thing I noticed was there may have been 75% of the people in the place drinking Bloody Marys which to me is a real good indicator. I don't drink over Lent but you rest assured I'll...

When entering the restaurant we were not greeted. Once seated the server was not friendly, enthusiastic, and could not pronounce items on the menu. When we asked her for simple requests we were met with resistance and bitter responses. Our steaks were cooked in a sauce that we were unaware of and the server never mentioned that it would be...

Valentines Eve dinner on the second floor of Sturges Speakeasy was perfect. Reservations were easy to secure, and guaranteed us a nice quiet spot in the upstairs dining area. Though music is a very subjective topic, for us, this music was perfect for us. The selections were spot on, the volume was such that you could tune in to the... More

Looked for a "different venue" for husbands birthday while we were in Harrisburg. Wanted somewhere with a good steak, different atmosphere, and new to us. Sturges speakeasy fit the bill. Love the decor---the whiskey barrel based bar, the lighting, etc. Would have loved to have one of the small two people bar tables, but since there was to be several... More

Sturges is conveniently located or any of the large government buildings on Forster Street in Harrisburg. It is a frequent place for an after work happy hour or a group lunch. The beer selection is good, and the food menu has a lot of options, even a good number for a vegetarian like myself. I do not know how often... More
