Wonderful place to eat Fresh Cut French Fries! Home made , fresh broiled fish, home cooked style meals in a historic setting. Owner is stellar about requests. Favorite for the soldiers, the locals, the better place to have a Christmas party!

Just a few seconds off the exits of Route 81 and Route 22 on Route 934 near Indiantown Gap National Cemetary, is Harper's Tavern. The location is so convenient for travelers going between Harrisburg and Allentown, and the food and service totally worth an exit...More

We stopped here with a few friends, the original building has been on site since the 1700s. The filet was excellent, my wife had the crab cakes, decent but not great. We loved the atmosphere, will go back

This is one of my favorite stops across PA. The service is great and the atmosphere is excellent. It was a quiet and relaxing environment. The original building is 100+ years old but by no means run down. You can read the history of the...More
