“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We stopped in Harrisburg, PA for the night on our way to NYC. We came to Firehouse for dinner that night. My husband and I split a couple appetizers and found the food and service were great! I would definitely recommend Firehouse to those visiting Harrisburg. I love that they refurbished the old firehouse into a restaurant.

“Firehouse is Five-Alarm Good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Firehouse is a must-try.

First, it's in a great location: a real former fire station. The decor is a bit intense at first, but fascinating once you realize it's all genuine. Then, there's the great service: attentive and knowledgeable. Finally, there's the food. Excellent pricing (the prime rib at $21 was a genuine bargain) and tasty. The cranberry walnut salad with chicken was well-prepared, which was welcome since salad entrees sometimes don't receive a lot of attention from the kitchen.

So - delicious, value-rich food, in a great location with knowledgeable, attentive service: Firehouse is a five-alarm must-try dining experience!

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Had the cedar plank salmon, garlic filet mignon, seafood linguine, and prime rib. Started with the crab fondue which was gone in seconds! My teenagers loved it and they aren't seafood lovers. Everything we had was very good. The servers were attentive and quick and remembered our order perfectly without writing it down. Atmosphere was very cool!

“Reviews were right on!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

We went to the Firehouse Restaurant based on their past reviews on tripadvisor. Everything that was mentioned was right on. We ordered the sea salt encrusted trout (one of their signature dish) and stayed away from the steaks. The ribs were fantastic - not too dry and not too sloppy. My friend wanted a full rack of rib instead of the rib and jumbo shrimp combo and they were able to accommodate him. The portion for the fried calamari is one of the biggest I have seen. The muchroom escargot portion was a bit small -- definitely one serving size. The drunken mussels were just ok. The crabcakes were almost as good as homemade - jumbo crabmeat! My daughter had the firehouse pasta and that was a bit too spicy for her.

We were a little late getting there for our reservation so we didn't have much time to fully appreciate the decor. Definitely worth going back if we were in the neighborhood.
