GREAT food - a bit pricey, but so well worth it to celebrate special occasions. Atmosphere and ways building was preserved to resemble original use was well done.

Set in an authentic firehouse which operated for over 100 years, this restaurant has a great selection of appetizers, soups, salads, burgers or main entrees. Also has a fine selection of alcoholic beverages. Our waitress was very pleasant and kind - offering suggestions on the menu, but not in a pushy way. If you go for dinner, know you can... More

We stopped for lunch, so I can't comment about the bar options. This was our best choice of the day! We feasted on fresh salads served to us by our friendly server Nicole. My friend had the steak and calamari which was perfectly prepared with peppercorn dressing. I feasted on the Bella mushroom salad with mixed greens, goat cheese, dried... More

There are too many other options to settle for this one. I think the prices are too high and the food is mediocre.

We decided to have our anniversary dinner at one of the restaurants in downtown Harrisburg, PA. We had been in this restaurant only once, many years ago. But because we remembered great food and outstanding service, we wanted to try it again. We were not disappointed! We started with a Gin and Tonic from the bar...and they did not skimp... More

We were upstairs in the banquet area for a dinner. The food was very good and they did have a Gluten Free menu.

The food is excellent; the staff is excellent; but the FIREBREAD is the reason to stop in and relax. Yes, you can get a beer (craft or other) or a nice mixed drink....but when you are ordering, DO NOT skip over the firebread! This concoction is better than advertised (it's not) and should be on EVERY table EVERY day! It... More

We were there around 1:00 on a Monday afternoon. The restaurant did not seem crowded, though I don't know how many people, if any, were in the upstairs area. The food was very good, but the service was slow. Once we were seated, it was almost ten minutes before someone came to take our drink order (by that time, we... More

Don't bother getting the Seared Dayboat Scallops. The service and atmosphere were great. Our waitress did a wonderful job. However, the food was mediocre and overpriced. 3 of us ordered the Dayboat Scallops and all 3 of us were disappointed. For $30 you get 4 small (I mean one bite small) overcooked scallops (fishy tasting/salty) thrown on a $1.00 worth... More

This is a great restaurant for folks that like to eat in a "recycled" facility; this one obviously being an old firehouse. Excellent "upscale" bar food. I had their homemade chili and homemade gumbo - - both were EXCELLENT. A LOT of firemen paraphernalia all around the restaurant.
