The day I went to the Firehouse, the carnivore in me was calling the shots. I started off with chili and give it props, although I'd be open to other appetizers next time. For the main, the prime rib won out, although the rib-eye looked tempting. Cooked at a perfect medium rare, I had no complaints. The au jus was... More

We spent a wonderful evening at Firehouse. The menu was broken down into "Alarms". "1st Alarm" was appetizers moving all the way to "5Alarm" which were your entrees. The menu has a nice variety...really something for everyone. Barbara, our server, was appropriately attentive, clearly loved her clientele, and made good suggestions. You get a loaf of freshly made bread with... More

This is the second year my family and I had dinner here for my birthday. Last year I ate meat and I loved the food so much that I went back for my birthday this year. I no longer eat meat and wasn't sure if I'd love it just as much as last year and I did. I was not... More

Fun environment in former firehouse. Decorated in "firefighting decor". We had salads. Very good and large portions. Service was very good. Good value. Street parking (metered).

Went here with 20 friends for dinner. They were very nice. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food although my Prime Rib was more rare than the medium I asked for. But I think the size of our group was too much for them as they seemed understaffed. Other than that the experience was good.

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
