Crab cakes were not fresh and mostly filler. Lima beans came to table mixed with peas. Disappointing. Too expensive for the quality.

This restaurant is consistently rated a top destination-but I just can't see it. We go back periodically just to make sure we aren't being unfair in our judgement and it is always the same. If you aren't a regular-on a first name basis with the waitresses, who have been there for decades-you will get short shrift and little attention. Food is OK but doesn't deserve the raves it seems to get from the regulars. The crab cakes are far from the best in the area and a steak ordered medium, seems to always be served a bit too well done. Carpeting has needed to be replaced for years and the decor can't even be called "deco". Parking is always an adventure and prices are a bit north of good value.

The Progress Grille has been named to the best restaurant list in Harrisburg for many years. It's a traditional menu with excellent quality. Its been a place where we go for special occasions. We have never been disappointed. Nice atmosphere and good service. Go, you won't be disappointed!

Progress Grill has been in business for years. It is one of the most consistent restaurants in the area. The food is always freshly prepared and excellent. The menu is mostly American, but includes several Greek items since the owners are Greek. For dessert, don't miss the Baklava which is to die for. The restaurant is dimly lit and cozy. The staff is well trained and polite. The location is easy accessible. The parking lot is a little cumbersome, but not unmanageable. As mentioned in the title, this restaurant doesn't need to make any progress. As the old adage says "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" Enjoy!!!!

My husband and I go to Progress Grill a couple of times a year. We love the steaks and crabcakes. The service is always really good and the staff are very polite. you never have to wait long for your food. Must try the PB pie. Yummy!! The restaurant is very clean and ample parking. We also have a lot friends who like it there also. The only thing I would suggest is to modernize it a little. Not bad now.
