I've always heard about the great reputation that this restaurant has and now I know why. The food was excellent. Service was equally as good. Our server was prompt and attentive - we never had to wait for a thing. Food was ordered and delivered hot within 20 minutes. This was probably the best service I ever experienced in Harrisburg!...

We have been going to this restaurant for many years and still look forward to going there. The seafood is excellent and the prime rib is out of this world. My husband's cousin eats prime rib regularly in the states and central America and always wants to go to Progress Grill when he visits us. The food is consistantly very... More

Have been there twice now. Nice variety of food choices with good price/value. Service very good as well. Decor could be updated but very clean, well run restaurant.

We were planning on having dinner in downtown Harrisburg with an old friend, and a traffic accident on I-83 necessitated a change in plans. I recalled reading about the Progress Grill, and my wife used her smartphone to get us there. Good choice! The service was prompt and attentive, and the atmosphere was free of televisions in the dining room,... More

I like taking family and friends here on special occasions. The staff is great and the food is always delicious. It's been around for a while and can get very busy on weeknights.

Four of us were at the Progress Grill on Sept. 25 for dinner. I was the first one to place my order...filet mignon, medium well. The waitress told me the steak would be 'butterflied'. I said I didn't want it butterflied and she replied that the chef won't prepare a medium well or well done steak any other way. I'd... More

Every restaurant claims they offer "famous" crabcakes. But they can't hold a candle to those at the Progress Grill. The Progress Grill doesn't even claim theirs to be famous. But if you eat them, you'll know they are the best you've ever had. All lump crabmeat. No filler. Meaty. Broiled to perfection. I can't rave enough about them. Had a... More

I was very disappointed with the food at this restaurant. My seafood as well as my wife's seafood were not fresh. The price did reflect fresh. The service was good, however there was a very miserable old man as a host. With all the great places to eat in Harrisburg I would skip this one.
