The food and service were wonderful! At first, I was concerned about lack of vegetables on the menu. When we ordered the crabcakes, our waitress gave us a tempting selection of vegetables. We both enjoyed the Greek salad and the delicious lima beans and agreed that the crabcakes were perhaps the best ever tasted. We also enjoyed the key lime... More

My wife ordered Halibut, but it didn't look like any Halibut I ever had. The prime rib was very fatty.

Maybe the menu has barely changed in years but why? It's always good. Excellent steaks and seafood. Had the crab cakes - yummy. Service friendly and helpful.

Bring your appetite because the portions are mammoth. Besides that, the quality is outstanding. It's not much to look at from outside or inside (but that pretty much sums up all of Harrisburg) but we were very impressed with the food. This place has been here for generations and to be honest, it's just as good today as it was... More

From the moment you enter the establishment, you feel like you stepped back into the 1970s. In fact you can see photographs of the original interior in the basement that looks identical to what is today, fast forwarding to 2016. With that being stated, it's extraordinary dark and it's very very hard to see anything inside. The lighting and the... More

Service was good. They also understand the difference of rare and medium rare, a plus. Crab cake was good, steak done perfectly. Sea bass was a disappointment swimming in lemon butter. Entrees were expensive. $29 for sea bass. Rolls were soft deli type rolls, not the hard baguette style I would expect and prefer. I have looked forward to trying... More

Don't know what's up with the HATERS {reviews} My wife and I have been going to this restaurant for over thirty years. I always have the crab cakes, filet mignon & there world famous peanut butter pie. The food is always great and the servers are all seasoned professionals. I know many criticize the decor, what's up with that? Not... More
