Restaurants in Pennsylvania

Visit Pennsylvania and experience Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine. According to one writer, "If you had to make a short list of regions in the United States where regional food is actually consumed on a daily basis, the land of the Pennsylvania Dutch—in and around Lancaster County, Pennsylvania—would be at or near the top of that list," mainly because the area is a cultural enclave of Pennsylvania Dutch culture. Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine reflects influences of the Pennsylvania Dutch's German heritage, agrarian society, and rejection of rapid change. Restaurants in Pennsylvania reflect this cultural heritage.

Harrisburg's hottest restaurant is aptly named The Fire House. It is located in The Hope Station building, the oldest standing firehouse in the city of Harrisburg. Signature dishes include spicy chicken, crab and duck with lots of German-style beer choices. This is one of the best restaurants in Pennsylvania.

At Pavone's you can dine at the Garden Room or sit in Ruby's Lounge and sample delicious and authentic cuisine from Mexico and Italy. If you have trouble deciding, try the diverse buffet or one of the healthy desserts like frozen yogurt.

Established in 1997, Appalachian Brewing Company restaurant and brewery serves its own ales and lagers, craft sodas in a warm and friendly setting.
