  • Decent Local Spot

    The Harper House is a decent local spot for a drink and something at the bar. My wife and I ate there for dinner and it was good but nothibg particularly special or creative. The Fish Tacos were tasty but would have been better enjoyed on the bar side rather than a dark, secluded dinning area. The price is fair for what you are served. The service is friendly and timely. Overall, it is a great lunch spot or game day hideaway.

    We loved the shrimp and grits that carried a little heat and included juicy shrimp. The homemade coconut bread pudding was sensational. Service was exemplary throughout the meal. If you need a good meal in Hoptown, this is the place to be.

    Always great food and great service. Cooked to perfection. I end up trying new things I normally wouldn't have just because of their specials. Hometown dining where they know you by name.

    The maple bacon brussels sprouts lived up to their reputation. I ordered the Low Country shrimp and grits which were quite spicy and soupy as described by our waiter but nonetheless delicious. My daughter chose the fried pickles and lettuce wraps. Both earned high marks from her. We will definitely go back. Service was attentive but not overbearing. We sat at a table that butted to the bar so the bartender was our waiter. Very nice.

    From the cocktails to the service, Harper House is the best. The servers are always quick with a recommendation and they are spot on. I have been here several times and have tried many items on the menu--nothing has disappointed. Well done!

    Harper House is like going to a bigger city. They change their menu twice a year, serving all fresh entrees. You are allowed to enter change any side dish with any entrée any time you choose. If you have any kind of gluten or food allergies they are very happy to accommodate you in anyway. Their flat breads are delicious and have different toppings each week. They have a fish special each week with wonderful sides, so be sure and ask about it, if fish is one of your favorites, as it is brought in fresh each week. The help are all friendly and very much on the ball. And you don't have to spend a lot on gas to get there.

    We have eaten at this restaurant many times. It was my husband's birthday and this is where he wanted to go. They serve their Ribeye and Filet steaks with a demi-glaze that is very delicious. My brother-in-law always gets the shrimp and grits and says it is so good he can't try anything new. Never had a bad meal or service here.

    My husban and I have been there twice now, the first time being an event upstairs with appetizers. We went downstairs to eat afterwards. When we left, my husband couldn't quit talking about how great his steak was and he is picky about that! We both loved the atmosphere and all of the food was great! We went back for our anniversary and had just as great an experience.

    Harper House is the best in the area. For people who truly appreciate unique and delicious food with superb ambiance. The drinks are perfect, the food is comparable to what you'd find at a nice Nashville restaurant. This place is better than anything in Clarksville and I can't wait to go back.

    My husband and I were visiting from out of town and thought we would check it out. The whole experience was awesome! The tenderloin appetizers were so delicious we had trouble sharing :). The Salmon was cooked perfectly. The atmosphere was comfortable and the staff were ready to help with any request. The owner was happy to fill us in on the history of the unique building. We will definately go out of our way to return when we are in that part of the state again !

    I highly recommend Harper house. It was the best meal we have had in a long time. A little more expensive than your normal restraint but worth it. Our steak, asparagus and potatoe casserole were superb! Staff was very friendly and on top of our needs. I give it a 100% a+++

    We arrived and were able to be seated at a nice table that was great for our group of five. The service was great and all the food from the cheese curds to the ribs and Key Lime pie was excellent. The owner Chris came by the table and spent some time with us. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    This was my second time dining at Harper House and it was just as great as the first time. Our waitress was very attentive and kept water glasses filled but also respected that it looked like our group was busy catching up. I ordered the filet and it was cooked to a perfect medium rare, with the asparagus and maple bacon brussel sprouts for sides. I wish I had gotten a double order of the brussel sprouts-SO GOOD. Another friend ordered the pork belly and the other the crab stuffed tilapia. It was the only time the table was quiet-when we were eating. St. Elmo's punch was a fave cocktail and the creme brulee cheesecake was perfect to share. Girls night, date night, any night, this is a great place!
