Our family has been here many times in the past, so we were surprised that this visit was so bad. The French Onion Soup was practically tasteless. The chili was cold. The server was not very friendly. It will probably be a while before we...give them another try, but someday we will, to see if they've improved.More

The restaurant has free parking. It is a family style diner. When I visited they were very busy. In spite of that I received excellent service and my bacon, eggs, and home fries breakfast was delicious and at a low price. COVID-19: Employees were not...very consistent about wearing masks. Customers were also not very good about being masked when away from their tables which were spaced for social distancing and cleaned quickly after the departure of a group.More

My husband and I had breakfast here at 8am on Sunday morning. We have been here many times before and always a good meal; however, after seeing a sign on the door advertising the needs for cooks, we should have left. Our potatoes were literally...straight out of the fridge (cold) and the onions were raw and sprinkled on top. The bacon and toasted muffin was fine, but the chicken was bathed in basil and not edible. The cream provided for the coffee was spoiled. I'm hoping that once the pandemic has passed, this restaurant can get back to being the best diner around - but for now, I'll pass. PS. The desserts were fantastic - hence 2 stars.More

We visited as a family group of 10 to remember our mother who passed away 6 years ago. Front Street Diner was one of her favorite places. The food was plentiful and tasted great. Our server was Amber. She was very attentive to all of...needs/ wants. Drinks were never empty and she made sure we had everything. We can't thank her enough for the generous service.More

My wife and I were passing through Harrisburg en route to Ohio and were hoping to have a solid breakfast. Servings are hardy here but 6 days removed from going here and I can't remember anything standing out, except the service. We had an omelette...and a bendedict. Neither were done especially well. The place is busy and a great way to get a feel for Harrisburg but this is the same style of diner you will find anywhere with a menu to large to deliver anything great.More

The outside is a bit plain, but don’t let that fool you. The restaurant was clean, the staff was very friendly, service was prompt and the food was very good. I would definitely go back

None of our party had every had greek food, so we chose several different greek dishes, which we enjoyed. Careful - huge servings! Our server was excellent! This was a nice little stop on our way through Pennsylvania.

Excellent food, staff, coffee. Clean and delicious. Ask for Ruth if you go. About the cutest and sweetest waitress I’ve ever met.
