We went to Thea’s with a friend for dinner. It was her first time there. She was impressed as we are always when we go. I had the salmon de jour which was fresh and bursting with flavor. Their calamari is the best in the area. The service was excellent and atmosphere was pleasant.

Food was very good but the tables are much too close together and do not allow for any intimate conversation between two people.

We made reservations and called ahead to ask for some privacy and a round table because we were celebrating a special occasion with friends. We were seated in a private dining room (very nice) and our only negative comment was we waited for someone to come in to begin service (water, wine glasses, menus,etc). We actually let staff know we had been waiting a long time. Service began immediately and everything was perfect from that moment on. Waitress (Alley) was GREAT! Wonderful personality & service. Food was superb! Great evening!

Food was very fresh and flavorful. We had the calamari for an appetizer. It is by far the best in the area. Nice selection of specials. Great service and ambiance.

Nice place to have dinner. In the summer they serve outside as well as inside and offer live music on Thursday evenings and sometimes on Tuesday evenings. The food is pretty good and there are many options to choose from. The only drawback (for us) is that it is BYOB. I guess many others find this attractive but its just a matter of convenience for us to not have to bring our own wine.

Amazing meal and service. We were traveling through from NC and decided to take a detour for dinner. Wow. Amazing menu and the specials for night were incredible. One problem - could not decide what to order. You will not be disappointed. Remember this is a bring your own wine. Wish this fantastic restaurant was near our home.

Great service. Food needs improvement ( a little too plain) and lacked proper cooking ( the string beans were hard and undercooked and the fried steak was well seasoned it was very dry and needed sauce ( they didn't have natural gravy or any kind of gourmet steak sauce -just maybe A1 . The menu was rather limited particularly the steak options - I think the only choice was the fried steak. Neverthless, this restaurant has great potential and I know they will be one of the best restaurants in Central PA in the near future.

From start to finish a remarkably enjoyable experience. The hostess eagerly accepted my request for a more private table with no hesitation. The service was efficient, friendly, polished and professional. The food was excellent - two appetizers, a salad for two, a shared entree, and two desserts, and every bite was delicious. I will be a regular at Thea from now on and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a terrific dining experience on the West Shore of Harrisburg.

This was my second visit to Thea and it was again a great experience. The menu is ample and there were many choices that appealed to me. There was also a gluten free menu that was larger than usually found. Our only "complaint" was the size of the salad, ordered as the only item for this person, was on the small side. He may have ordered an appetizer as well had he known. Overall, it was a wonderful visit and I look forward to visiting again!

What a wonderful experience! Staff were so friendly. The food was phenomenal. Great for a date night or anniversary. They had a variety of specials on top of their diverse menu. The Brie Brulee appetizer is out of this world. During my dinner, I had the shrimp and crab pasta (pasta was definitely homemade and amazing) and my boyfriend had one of the specials, blackened halibut. Wow! You won't leave this place disappointed. Highly recommend!

This was a great stop for my wife and I. After being seated on the patio, service took a little bit, but once we had their attention, it was great. The portions were larger than I expected them to be, it was a little pricey, but not enough to keep me from coming back. It would be a place I could routinely go on 'date night' or with other couples. The atmosphere on the patio was outstanding, the weather cooperated and being BYOB, we enjoyed a couple beverages with our meal.

I chose from the specials and the food was excellent. The appetizers all sounded delicious and were hard to choose just one. We look forward to returning.

With many chain restaurants in the Mechanicsburg, PA area, I'm very glad I gave Thea a try earlier this week. It's such a cute place, with lovely outdoor seating and live music. I wasn't able to sit outside as the tables were already full on a nice Tuesday night, but seating inside was great too. My server was Dani and she was excellent with her explanations and recommendations. Thank you. The tuna poke appetizer was extremely good, prepared much different than I had expected. I had the salmon du jor for my entree which was good but not wonderful. It could have used a bit more flavor or seasoning but all-in-all, I enjoyed everything about Thea and will be back next time I in the area.
