About

Home 231 creates a comfortable yet stylish restaurant that offers contemporary home-style cuisine, service and atmosphere.

Our food is described as simple and approachable American food with a modern touch. Join us indoors or outdoors on our courtyard and allow our servers to create a dining experience you will remember.



Our outside patio is booked on a first come first serve basis. Making a reservation for the courtyard does not guarantee the courtyard seating, but we do our very best to accommodate all requests. Private parties in the courtyard will move all requests for outside to our indoor dining room.

This is the 3rd time I have been here but first time for dinner. I can say, for the prices, I expected not to be hungry but I was when I left. I got the duck which was great but it wasn't enough. When I drop $30 for a plate, I expect to have more. That's all. Besides that, it was great. I'll stick to brunch there next time, more food for the money.

We went to Home 231 for New Years Eve brunch. The cocktails were fabulous. I had a Cranberry Orange Margarita and my husband went for the Maple Brown Sugar Manhattan which is garnished with a generous piece of candied bacon. Both were excellent.
I had the quiche of the day - very good, served in a small iron skillet with puffy pastry, husband had the shrimp and grits - EXCELLENT! We decided to end the meal with coffee and their home made donuts with three dipping sauces. We will definitely be back for lunch and dinner in the future. Don't miss this true neighborhood gem!

Great brunch....as usual. One of our favorite go-to places on the weekend. The crab Eggs Benedict are exceptional. And don’t miss the donuts (even if you usually don’t like donuts).

We’ve never been disappointed by Home. Christmas Eve brunch had a nice menu selection including some all time favorites. The Eggs Benedict and Fried Oyster Omelette we’re both delicious. Nice size portions and side dishes. Good ambience and service.

I live out of town and was visiting family for the holidays. This is the second time my fiancé and I have been here. Without a doubt, one best experience I’ve had dining! The food was absolutely amazing, the service gave you a feeling of genuine hospitality and warmth, and it’s not crazy pricey! Highly recommend coming here

Driving home from a business meeting in Phila and was able to stop in at this exceptional food spot in Harrisburg. Wish there was something on this place's level in my current home ( State College), but alas nothing comes close so the 100 mile drive is worth the effort to dine in this restaurant

A really special neighborhood restaurant that has to be tried to be fully appreciated. Five family members enjoyed a wonderful, eclectic Sunday brunch at Home 231 yesterday. Everyone ordered something different and the unusual and creative menu choices were both attractive and appetizing. This restaurant is a fantastic find on a side street near the heart of downtown Harrisburg and the Capitol Building. Service was friendly and attentive as well. All in all, a great experience!

A quaint location and setting with a creative menu. It is a small restaurant, so be prepared to sit on top of another table. The food is good but overpriced for what you get.

We had our first date here at Home 231. Made a reservation a week in advance, upon arrival we were seated in under 5 minutes. The atmosphere was relaxing and exactly what i was looking for, for a fancy night out. Our server was pleasant and attentive, the food was phenomenal, the drinks were tasty. Well worth the price, and i will definitely be returning. Id also like to try the brunch menu.

Took friends for brunch. Great meal. Had Southern Fried Chicken. Ordered side of the house sausage-which had great flavor but a little dry in the middle. Our guests enjoyed their French toast and pumpkin pancake selections. Very polite and friendly server although a slower pace than I would have preferred. Two hours from start to finish.

We are new to the area, and we came across Home 231 on this app. We were delightfully surprised. From the amazing cocktails, to the perfectly composed entrees, and finishing with delicious ice cream we were WOWed. We will be back and we are looking forward to trying brunch. Our server Mike made the experience all the more wonderful, and he managed to keep the timing of our courses even after the restaurant filled up. Food was to die for, and I can’t wait to go back.
