The Millworks - A Midtown Must

When we asked The Millworks owner Josh Kesler to sum up The Millworks Restaurant in Harrisburg’s Midtown neighborhood, he laughed before defaulting to the logo: “ Art. Food. Music .” He laughed because he knows that even though that caption cuts to the heart of it, The Millworks is so much more.
