Best food in the Harrisburg area and beyond! Love the quiet atmosphere and the fact that they allow you time to enjoy each course. And by the way you want to order each course because that are all amazing!! Chefs make delicious flavor combinations!

Service from Danielle was excellent, and everything was attended to very promptly. Everything we ordered was prepared beautifully and tasted wonderful. They were out of my first choice for a main dish, which was a little disappointing. And I was a little surprised that there weren’t some more unique or creative menu options. But again, what we ate was delicious, and we had an amazing evening. An absolutely beautiful restaurant.

Great food, but really unkind staff.. did not acknowledge the birthday at the table, was completely uninterested in having a conversation about the venue, and was unhappy to help when a mistake was made with a drink order... unfortunately as good as the food was, the service will keep us from coming back.

Char's was, even during the pandemic, excellent in service, ambiance and food. Char herself stopped by each of the tables to check out how everyone was doing. The tables were well spaced and we felt comfortable being inside the large dining room. An excellent place to celebrate any occasion!

Everything about Char Tracy Mansion was amazing. We were looking for a romantic location to celebrate our anniversary and this was the most perfect answer. The drinks, food, ambiance...everything was perfect. We decided that we will absolutely go more often and who doesn’t love a great romantic evening?
Just remember to make a reservation and be prepared to enjoy every second.

A beautiful atmosphere for dining, complete with stunning blown glass fixtures. The food is absolutely divine - I have never had a meal I didn't thoroughly enjoy. It is also worth mentioning that the drinks are the best in the area, as well. Everyone from the bartenders to the wait staff are excellent. While expensive, the meals and beverages are worth every penny!

The drinks and the escargots with spinach were excellent. My dining partner's gnocchi with seafood was oversalted. I ordered lamb chops medium rare. Three chops were delivered to the table. The first one I cut into was extremely tough and medium well. The second one was medium and just as tough. The third one was a bit more tender and cooked to the appropriate temperature. Our server inquired about how my entree was and I explained the issue. She offered to have the kitchen prepare me new lamb chops. The replacement lamb chops were cooked medium rare, but my dining partner was nearly finished eating by the time I got my food. Weve had excellent meals at Char's Tracy Mansion in the past, so I was rather disappointed.
