Our son is a freshman at a nearby college, so we are trying some of the local restaurants during our campus visits. Harper's Tavern is very good. Our appetizers and entrees were served hot, and we particularly enjoyed the Swatty Fries. Service was attentive and prompt. We will be back!

I stopped here for dinner and enjoyed learning on the history of the building. The service was quick. The decor was intriguing. The filet was cooked to order and tasty.

Favorite hideaway! Love this local tavern to get away without going far! Relaxing atmosphere, great drinks and something on the menu for everyone. Every time I've been here, the service has been exceptional. I had the crab scampi that was among the best I've ever had! My husband had the New York Strip medallion which he thought was only average... More

We do Harpers Tavern on special occasions, birthdays or anniversaries. Quiet atmosphere, quality food, pleasant but not overbearing servers.

This restaurant is a survivor of floods and fires. It is amazing that the owners have brought it back from devastation. But it could use updating of decor and furnishings. There is a very loyal local following and I'm sure in part it is due to very reasonable prices and substantial portions. We were there with friends for an evening... More

Truly impressed the look and décor of this place. A true hidden gem. Food was amazing. I ate here several times while out this way for over a month. Everything was incredible from the wings to the filet. Beer was always cold. The place was extremely clean and the staff was incredibly nice and polite. They were all friendly and... More
