This is a decent spot for some pub food and craft beer on tap. The staff is a bit flaky more interested in chatting with themselves instead providing great service for their customers, although those working the bar do a great job. Their wings are spot on perfect, nice and meaty and lots of heat or non heat to pick... More

Arooga's is a sports bar notoriously known for bad service. On our most recent visit, we had surprisingly good service. We were seated quickly, had our drink order taken and were able to order within a very reasonable period of time. Time lapse from placing our order and getting our food was good. The menu is extensive, wings are their... More

We’ve been here in past years with no issues, but maybe because we had eaten only after quite a few beers... This time, we ordered takeout potato soup and tater tots. Gross, I know, but sometimes you’re just hungry for something... There were two long dark hairs in my soup. Ugh. Talk about stomach turning. The food was mediocre anyway,... More

I stopped in today to have a snack and drink. I left early becuase the music was loud - and annoying. Whoever managed this place should not be in the business of driving customer's away. I am disappointed.

Place has TVs everywhere; big ones hanging from the walls and a small one on each table. I guess they want to let people watch what they really want vs having to be stuck with whatever is up on the big screens but one TV at each table is a bit too much, don't you think??? Plus you can only... More

So me and my boyfriend ordered the app sampler for 2 for $14 and there was barely anything on it. Very little fries, and they were cold at that. Then we ordered the party bowl shakrita... It was $26!!!! It definitely wasnt worth $26, maybe $12 but not $26. For $26 I was expecting one and done, but that surely... More

On July 27, 2016 I took my family to Hershey Park for vacation. We stayed at the Best Western located on Allentown Rd. in Harrisburg, PA. The attendant at the hotel told us Arooga's had good food. We were hungry after travelling from N.Carolina. It was late so we stopped into this place. First, it took forever to get someone... More

Recently I was in Harrisburg for a 5 day convention, and on this trip my wife and daughter came along. Each day we would go out for lunch or dinner, and try a different restaurant near the State Capital. In this case, one night went to Arooga's, which is about 2 blocks from the Capital. Arooga's in part bills itself... More

There are only a few restaurants near our Best Western Hotel, so we chose this one and were very pleased. It is a sports bar and restaurant, so it is a bit noisy, but we were able to converse with no problem. Our bartender/waitress was very personable and helpful. She told us about the Happy Hour specials, and gave us... More

Description
There’s never been a place quite like Arooga’s before. How do we know? Spies. That, and because we’re not just some average, run-of-the-mill, sports bar. Nope. We’re a slightly above average grille house and sports bar. That’s right. Our housemade food is prepared by chefs instead of factory workers — it’s better. The housemade bread, wings sauces, salad dressings, the housemade soups. All better. The beer is colder. The TVs, TV-er. You can see every game from every seat. And we mean every game, because we have every sports package available all 365 days of the year on 100's of flat screen tv's between all of our locations. We've got free wi-fi, Golden Tee, Buzztime trivia, and NTN Texas Hold 'em. We've got over 80 menu items under $8.99. And several other items priced over $8.99 for the rich folks. So if you're looking for great food prepared and served by above-average people that prepare and serve great food, you'll find it at Arooga's. If you're looking for fun, you'll find that, too. If you're looking for your boyfriend and/or girlfriend, we haven't seen him and/or her. So there you go, the proof's in the pudding here at Arooga's.
