Our server Kim was really nice and attentive. She asked for feedback and was fast on refills etc…Good things were the prices, friendly staff and roomy dining area. The Turkey breast is real, and sliced and she says everything is made in house, but I have my doubts on the mashed potatoes, which were good but no lumps. The potato filling is tasty and cucumber salad pretty good too, even though I normally don’t like the creamier style, so good job.. Cream of asparagus soup, not so great, but I did eat it since I was hungry from a long hike. Overall, it was pretty decent and we left with a $32 bill, so not bad at all. I couldn’t finish it all. Good place for comfort food and typical diner menu. Desserts looked great but was too full to try any. I’d definitely go back.

Great efficient waitstaff and the best breakfast- available all day! Daily specials are delicious. Stop to enjoy the old steam engine pictures! Oh, and bakery!

We stopped here for breakfast. We found the diner was clean and dividers between each booth.We were seated promptly and our server came directly to our table for our drink order. I had a mushroom omelet with cheddar cheese (an additional charge) home fries and raisin toast. This is the only diner we've been to that serves raisin toast. My partner had eggs,bacon and toast. Everything was quickly served and as ordered. Good coffee. Daily specials. Breakfast served all day. We will definitely be back to try some of their other menu choices.

Great American diner. The food is great and so are the prices. It may have dated decor but the food is very good.

This is not one of my go to restaurants! I went because friends of mine invited me, they love this restaurant. The restaurant is clean and the staff is very friendly and engaging. I find that the food is tolerable but not the best tasting. The prices are reasonable and there's plenty of parking.


My friend and I decided to stop here for a quick bite. The salmon was great, as was the veggie and rice. We topped our meal off with cheesecake topped with both cherries and blueberries. The staff were professional and attentive. This is a place I will go to again.

Let me tell you, we had a not so pleasant experience at an Airbnb, so when we got to Front Street Diner in the morning…it was exactly what we needed! The whole experience was amazing! We were seated quickly…our waitress was fantabulous, the food came out quickly and was so good! We loved how our waitress got our sense of humor and played along with us! Mentally and emotionally…it really was what we needed to get our spirits back on high!

I had breakfast with a friend I hadn't seen for almost 50 years, when our server (Ashley) found this out...she said take as long as you like. Great server, checked on us MANY times.The reason I gave a 4 instead of 5 was the "home fries" were just like sliced, boiled potatoes?!

A buddy of mine and I ate at the front street diner lately. It is a no frills great place to get a simple meal. I had broiled crab cakes and my friend had fried flounder. I guess I should have known better than to order seafood so far inland! But actually, it wasn't too bad. The meals came with two sides and a salad and rolls. Lots of food for a very reasonable price. I noticed that this place serves breakfast all day. The service was adequate.

Good food, friendly staff, fast service. Place was packed at 8AM on a Saturday. Got the last open table and expected to wait for the food - eggs Benedict and French toast meals came out in 15 minutes and done perfectly. Grabbed some cinnamon rolls to go on my way out too. Will be coming back here again!

Ok we've returned! Must say this place does impress. Nice size portions and the quality of the food is good & it's served hot! My wife heard their crab cakes were delicious so she decided to try them with a baked potato and some coke slaw. The only negative she said was she didn't care for their tartar sauce! Everything else was tasty. She even shared a piece with me. The crab cake does contain a little filler which is norm since it was deep fried still had a lot of crab in it and it was tasty! I had the Butterflied Shrimp and some fries! It was a great meal for the price! FYI I had coffee with my meal and the coffee was hot and good! Servers are great and pleasant and always willing to make suggestions on the specials. We'll return again to sample more!

Delicious...especially their chicken rice soup and desserts. The staff worked hard to make sure we were taken care of. Tables were spaced nicely so that we did not feel crowded. An overall good experience.

I wouldn't disagree with some reviews of the upkeep, there are good and bad days. However the food is tasty, there are large portions, the price is unbelievable, the staff is super friendly and there is ample parking for Front Street. I recommend the Tom Turkey with potato stuffing. And any cake you see!


A fabulous place to eat in Harrisburg. The only problem is if you don't have a car it's very difficult to visit! Delicious breakfast (served all day), lunch, and dinner. Italian, Greek, seafood, Pennsylvania Dutch always on the menu. Used to be open 24/7, but one of the victims of COVID. It's like Harrisburg used to be in the 60's and 70's. You almost forget you're in Harrisburg in 2022. Plenty of free safe parking.
