  • "There is very good variety in this restaurant with an open kitchen where you see the cooks doing what they do. Our server, Clark, was especially attentive and made the occasion that much more enjoyable. You can pick from southern fare all the way to a great veggie burger which is based on beats as opposed to the typical bean burger. Pizzas are great and they make a cookie which comes in a cast iron pan. Easy place to take picky guests and great for kids..."

  • "The waiter was extremely rude as soon as we sat down. He never introduced himself or said hello. He just walk over to table and said "What are you drinking". When he refilled the drinks he slid the glasses across the table. He constantly reached across the guests in an abrupt manner. There were 10 guests at our table and they all agreed that it was a terrible experience. To add insult to injury, we complained to the manager twice before the git a new waiter/waitress. We waited over an hour for our food because the original waiter either never put the ticket in or held it on his pocket while he waited in other tables. No compensation or apologies were ever made to our groupm I was very disappointed in Harpers."

  • "The food was delicious, and I appreciate the efforts to provide a Gluten Free menu. Service was great, food and drinks were served promptly. My husband's steak was done perfectly and the brisket tacos were great. We will definitely be going back and can't believe we hadn't been before."

  • "Our server was very helpful . Unfortunately, they were trying to fix a door to the outside right as lunchtime started and we had to move to another booth but was still cold so it took away from our dining experience. The food was delicious and the seating allows for more privacy"

  • "We had reservations for over a week in advance and was seated at the worse table in the restaurant. Bar table, in the corner at the server check out computer . Was non- stop traffic jam in front on out table. Also a server had place a serving tray on the brick wall that was separating out booth and the computer. It was hanging over so far, that my wife could not sit back in her seat without knocking it off or had to crouch in the corner to allow room. It stayed there the whole meal When the food arrived the potatoes where piping hot, while both of our meats were cold( room temp at best)"

  • "We have always gotten the chicken supremes platter. We use to get a big plate full of chicken, now we only get 6-7 fingers. It use to come with any two sides, now it only comes with slaw and one side. The slaw use to be in a larger bowl with big hefty pieces of slaw. Now it comes in a small little cup and the slaw is finely chopped up. We use to get a big helping of freshly cooked and hot fries. I was disappointed in the fries on Saturday night. The chicken fingers themselves are still fantastic; we just barely get enough to fill us now. I am not sure what has happened; was it a change in management or cooks? With all the competition, especially Cheesecake Factory with their Large portions, you might want to revisit some of these issues."

  • "Valentine's day special we were sold on didn't meet our standards. I believe if you are presenting a special then it should be emaculant, to where you would want to return and try more item's. But no, I usually have a steak and potato and it really satisfies my taste, now your 2 dishes we tried has me hesitant to try anything new. And then the sparkling Champaign was not presented as part of our meal and the table next to us it was. I was highly dissatisfied with my service and choice for such a wonderful evening."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Aaron was very attentive and rolled with our sense of humor and needs. He really helped make a good dining experience great. We split the Ahi dinner as an appetizer. It was perfect for that. The Asian pasta salad that came with the Ahi was really quite good. My wife got the rotisserie half chicken and enjoyed it thoroughly. I got the tilapia fish tacos, opting for the lettuce wrap instead of tortillas. Excellent. The Tuxedo Cake was delicious, though we did have to take it, and half our dinner, home because we couldn't finish it all. Definitely use Open Table to make reservations at this restaurant, especially on special occasions, or you'll be waiting at the door forever. We came in on time and were seated immediately. We'll e back!"

  • "We live close by and always enjoy spending time at Harper's. Consistently good food and service!!"
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "The menu was not very diverse. I couldn't find anything from their limited selection and ended up choosing a salad. There isn't much to choose from if you're wanting something lighter (pasta, chicken, seafood, etc) or that isn't red meat. They had to "special" prepare a salad for me to substitute grilled chicken (which I thought was a staple at most restaurants) instead of their standard Angus flank. The chicken was overcooked and laying atop a bowl of shredded, wilted iceberg lettuce. Considering the surrounding competition. In the South Park area, they should consider a menu overhaul. I likely will not go back."

  • "Met some friends here for Dinner; it's a great half way spot. The menu is a little vague - but the choices are good. Our server (his name I did not get --- male, blond, glasses -- I think that describes a couple of serveres there) was friendly but felt the need to pre-bus just about everything off our table while we were still visiting with friends - I mean right down to the napkins. There were only our beverage glasses on the table when we left... it was almost like he was trying to get us to leave.. Kind of annoying. So that was the only negative thing about the night."

  • "Not being from the Charlotte area, I needed to book a restaurant for a large group of people. I remembered dining at Harper's a few years back and enjoyed the experience. The Harper's of today is not the Harper's I remember. The service was extremely slow - we waited for almost 45 minutes for food at lunch. The server appeared harried and overwhelmed. The food quality was sub-par. I was disappointed and even more so because I disappointed colleagues."

  • "Got together with my girl friends at Harper's Friday night (a Southpark staple) - it is a great place for our Christmas celebreation. It would also be a great place for a lunch or dinner date. Really enjoyed the food and company."

  • "Harper's near South Park Mall is a perfect place to meet family and friends for an enjoyable meal. The staff is welcoming and attentive. If you like to tweak your menu choices a bit for dietary reasons they accommodate without hesitation."

  • "Based on the write up for the meal Harper's was serving Thanksgiving Day, it sounded like a great place to take my father and brother. The food was disappointing despite waiting a long time to be served. 3 meats were offered and the total weight was not more than 3 - 4 oz. The prime rib was tough and not something my 93 year old father could chew. We had asked for just turkey for him but were told that wasn't an option. Probably just as well since the turkey appeared to be prepackaged breast meat. Based on what we paid, Harper's was the winner for this meal. We have eaten at this Harper's in the past - not a special occasion and the food and service was fine so this was not expected. Definitely won't go on any Holiday in the future."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Enjoyed Thanksgiving there. It was very crowded but we had reservations. We arrived early and were seated early. I didn't realize when I made the reservation that it was the latest time accepted. Had I known that I might have made it a little earlier. The website didn't specify that the full menu wouldn't be available and some in my party didn't want typical Thanksgiving food which varied from excellent meat to average sides. They ran out of a popular desert in the prix fixe, but the replacement was fabulous - and I'm not a desert lover. The server was very attentive and made sure we had what we wanted. It is difficult to rate a restaurant on a day that isn't typical, but all things considered, it made for a pleasant meal."

  • "Always a great choice. Consistently very, very good. It was great to have 50% off a glass of wine on Tuesday!"
    Dined on 11/26/2013
  • "Our dining experience at Harper's was not a great one. The menu is not deep enough to suit our tastes, the atmosphere was extremely loud and the food was average at best. Don't think this is a place I care to return to again."
    Dined on 11/4/2013
  • "Had a family reunion here. Food was excellent. Had excellent service on a Saturday night. Nothing but great things to say about this place. Come from Minnesota and have been here every time I visit Charlotte. Look forward to eating here always because the menu is varied and always reliable, service is friendly and prices are reasonable!"

  • "I had the pulled pork, she had the pimento steak, we had the skillet cookie; everything was decent but not great. The service was nothing to complain about."
    Dined on 10/9/2013
  • "The food was superb, and our waiter was attentive and helped as we have a disabled family member. I asked for a table that was readily wheelchair accessible and they had a table that was picked out for us specifically and perfect to keep us out of the way of others! Couldn' t have asked for anything better. Also this is one of the only restaurants I know of that keeps prime rib on the menu year round. What's not to like about that?"
    Dined on 9/14/2013
  • "they have recently added flat bread pizza to the menu. Last week I dined here and had a special pizza. They were able to create it for me again even though it was not on the regular menu. pepperoni & Italian sausage. OMG...it's as good as flat bread I've had in Ft Lauderdale. I also had a glass of Clos Du Bois wine and a small side salad. That salad is anything but small. My guest had the bar-b-q platter with fries and cole slaw. Why didn't I give it a perfect score? It's not a bad restaurant. It just seems to now have a more senior clientele. With the exception of the flat bread, the menu has not changed in all the yrs I've eaten off and on here (min of 15 yrs). It no longer has the annoying wait it did years ago."
