On the outside, the Glass Lounge Restaurant may look like just another bar and grill, but don't let it's unassuming exterior and slightly crowded, informal interior fool you. Once you get a look at the menu, and taste the food, you'll look around you and wonder if somehow you landed at a fancy upscale restaurant. They have a steak there that's big enough to feed a small family of 10 (and that's not including the salad and sides)! If you order the pasta and scallops, make sure you REALLY want scallops (you're not gonna get a measly 3 or 4 of them)! I ordered the seafood platter, and I thought for sure I must have stepped into a seaside restaurant instead of one along the banks of the Susquehanna River! I hadn't had seafood that good since I ate a seafood restaurant near Daytona Beach! The scallops were melt-in-your-mouth good and didn't have that tinny taste that scallops sometimes have when they're not quite fresh. Unfortunately, I can't say anything about the desserts there, because I didn't have room for any, nor did anyone else in our party! The service was friendly and welcoming, even though we came in as a large group with no reservations. They were very accomodating and especially patient with the special-needs young adults in our party. We couldn't have asked for more gracious wait staff. The prices were, I'd say, in the moderate to expensive range, but you truly get what you pay for, not to mention a wonderful meal for Fido when you get home, because you definitely won't be leaving without a doggie bag! I was so impressed with the Glass Lounge Restaurant that, after just a few bites of my dinner, I was making plans to return and trying to think of all the people I knew that I could recommend it to.
When I walked in with my party I was shocked!! The decor took my breath away. The design is like no other. I love the look and the layout. We were greeted right away. The hostess let us know where our party was and got the elevator for us. (Yes I said elevator.... They have a third floor with a private FULL bar.) The event was great the food was too much to imagine. They had a full buffet and throughout the night the servers were right there to get drinks and take our empty plates for us. I had my youngest with me and she is a picky eater. The server talked to the chef and had a plate made just for her. What a friendly and wonderful place to go. Staff is the best compared to other harrisburg restaurants by far!!!
You've got to check out what the Firehouse is all about!!! The Food is amazing!! The filet I ordered was great and my girlfriends crabcakes were out of this world. I was impressed with the portion sizes of the meals compared to the price of the food. For all that food I just couldn't believe it. I give the Food an A++++! The server we had was one of the best I've ever had. I believe her name was Shelley. She was very attentive. She answered all of our questions and gave us advice on what to order. I give the Service an A++++! Thank you Firehouse for a wonderful evening out with my girlfriend! We will be back!
