HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — A popular restaurant in the Harrisburg area is set to reopen this month following a December disaster that shut them down.
abc27 reported back in February that The Greystone Public House Restaurant closed in December due to an unforeseen water pipe burst, which damaged large sections of the restaurant from drywall to the ceiling.
Since shutting down, Greystone has been working on renovations to the damaged space, while also taking the opportunity to make previously planned upgrades as well. According to the restaurant’s Facebook, they are aiming to reopen on May 30 with a new menu.
Prior to reopening, Greystone will need to pass a food inspection and pass a Liquor Control Board inspection – this is because Greystone’s liquor license hasn’t been in use for over 90 days, due to their closure.
Greystone’s general manager Bill Collier told abc27 in April that aside from inspections, Greystone still has a bit of work to finish on the inside of the establishment, such as finishing repairs on the drywall. Once the drywall installation is completed, Collier says the rest of the renovations should move quickly.

“People are dying to come back,” Collier stated. “We get calls, emails, and Facebook messages of people asking and saying ‘they can’t wait for us to reopen’ – this community has just been so supportive.”
Guests that are looking to drop by for a visit upon Greystone’s reopening can expect the following changes to the restaurant:
- New pizza oven (new pizza additions to the menu will follow)
- New look for the ceiling
- New lighting fixtures and decor
- Updated floor plan layout
“We do have our old favorites, brussels sprouts, that’s not going anywhere,” owner Jason Viscount said. “We did add pizzas. That was actually finished right before the flooding.”
Viscount says they’ve also added some new pasta options to the menu.
“[These changes] will ‘WOW’ people once they see what we have been doing here!” Collier added.
Upon Greystone’s reopening, their hours of operation are expected to be modified for the first couple of weeks. More information and updates regarding Greystone’s hours of operation will be announced on their Facebook page.
