Wonderful Neighborhood Spot
We went there to take a cocktail class from Jerry Slater, the owner, and expected to stay an hour or so. We liked it so much, we ended up eating dinner & staying for 6 more hours! The cocktails and beautifully laid-out bar can't be beat. The food is really good, consisting of locally-sourced, delicious but uncomplicated snacks, veg and bigger plates. Sarah, our server, was perfect. We will definitely be back and will try the outside seating now that spring is here!

We sampled from the menu. The shrimp and grits were awesome and we also enjoyed the gnudi. The mussels really didn't have a lot of flavor, unfortunately, but we were glad of our other picks.

H Harper Station has been
H Harper Station has been a tremendous addition to the neighborhood. The bar is first rate and the food is always well prepared and delicious. This was our second time for Sunday brunch. Brunch has been equally as good as the dinners we've had there. They've got a great range of dishes for brunch and they are all accessible, but a bit eclectic. The Rabbit and Waffles I had for Easter Brunch was a great take on chicken and waffles. The Engineer's Breakfast and Cathead Biscuits w/ gravy were also great. The chef's take on French Toast, to me, epitomizes the menu. Its a standard brunch item but done in the Chef's way and definitely not like you would do at home (which is the point of going out right?). We will be back for brunch (and dinner).

Harper Station Special Events
Harper Station is always a good experience. This visit was for the Rhum Clement tasting in which dinner and rum cocktails were the focus. The food and drinks were stellar as always. The service was also great. We always enjoy hanging out with Tim the Enchanter (our waiter) and it was nice to meet some of the other staff during this event. Great food. Great drinks. Can't recommend Harper Station enough.

Brought my friend out to celebrate her graduation from her Master's program. Absolutely loved the Augusta Green Jacket cocktail (me) and the Bee's Elbow (her). I had the pork loin, and she had the burger--the food was excellent.
I recommend this place over H&F. The drinks are just as well thought out, and the place isn't absolutely packed with rude Buckhead yuppies. Definitely order the tots; they're some of the best I've had. I think they fry them in duck fat.

A must go
Awesome does not give it justice, It is a quaint restaurant set up in an old train station. This was my second time eating here and each time I am left wanting more. I have no complaints, only praise, for the food, service, and atmosphere.

great neighborhood gem
in an old train depot, this vibrant bar and local - somewhat farm-to-table provider - is a great addition to the Grant Park / Glenwood Park area.

The staff is knowledgeable, professional, and eager to please. The special cocktails are more than you could hope for. The mixture of fresh ingredients, with premium liquor are made to tantalize your taste buds. The drinks are not some run of the mill tonics that they just decided to add fresh fruit to make the drinks look pretty. They are crafted with unique flavors, such as ginger, honey, orgeat, and white mint. The food is delicious tease your taste-buds with the garlic-herb tater tots!

I love H Harper Station!
I am always happy to come back to H. Harper and realize that I can get an interesting well mixed cocktail and great meal of small plates of tasty beautifully plated food. It makes me sad when I realize I have wasted money trying other restaurants that don't measured up to this standard.

Burger was fantastic!
I am still having dreams about how awesome my burger was! Nice small bun, double patty cooked to perfection, with cheese and bacon sent straight from heaven. And the rosemary tots were amazing, not overly fried or seasoned.

Thank you for the vegan options
Has fantastic crafted cocktails and the staff is very knowledgeable in explaining all the ingredients and offering recommendations. They offer a great vegetable plate that can be done vegan, and I was thrilled to see that they've now added a vegan option on the dessert list. And not simply a bowl of fruit. When I was there it was a chocolate ganache tart, and it was great.

great service & vegetarian friendly
The waiter was wonderful--very knowledgeable about the menu and veggie options, very friendly but not too much so. My cocktail (special of the night) was delicious--hopefully they will add it to the menu--it was a local award winning concoction made with fresh peach, tequila, and some other yummies.
My salad was great; but a little pricey at $8. My veggie plate was very tasty, but two slices of fresh tomato does not qualify as one of four sides chosen by the chef, to make up a $17 plate. Cook me something. My husband really enjoyed his meat something or other.
All in all I really like H.Harper a lot, would definitely recommend it, and will return!

Former Train Depot Serving Classic
I went for my birthday with three girlfriends. We split one of the punch bowls ($40 and serves 4-6) and found this to be a reasonable value. I ordered the Reuben, which was fantastic. The desserts are where they really shine, particularly with the doughnuts with coffee ice cream. Overall it's great for late night drinks and dessert or a date.

Funky Spot Good Food
After reading reviews for H. Harper we went with the expectation that the good would be okay and the drinks fabulous. We found both to be terrific. Loved the smoked pimento cheese appetizer and our entrees (steak and pork loin offerings) were delicious. Our waitress was attentive, patient with our questions, and well-informed. We will definitely return to work our way through the menu.

I chose H. Harper Station for my birthday celebration with my family. The food was spectacular. The drinks were over-the-top sensational, And Melanie, our server, was not only friendly and attentive, but also extremely knowledgeable regarding even the most esoteric of food and drink ingredients. It's cool without being trendy. It's exciting without being clubby. It's adventurous without being unapproachable.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Started to hear all of the buzz about H. Harper then decided to try it out. It did not disappoint. Everything we had was made with care and was just wonderful. This place will become a regular stop for sure.

Great Neighborhood Destination
Located in a great old train depot building, Harper Station has a great neighborhood ambience: cozy, comfy, not too big, with a farm-to-table meal that's just great. The Memorial Drive address initially made me wonder about going - but I'm sold. It exudes the friendliness of "Cheers", with a good bar as well for those who are interested, but i really appreciated the fine menu. My friend had a tasty catfish dish, with collards and other beautifully prepared veggies, and my pork tenderloin was superb.

Great food, good price
I have been to Harper Station a number of times, and always enjoy the food and drink a good bit. The servers also know their stuff and do their jobs well. While prices are not horrible, I do wish they were a little lower.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Harper Station is a great place to go on a Friday night - have a great cocktail and some good small plates.

Great Southern Food, Cocktails
Had an incredible date here. Everything was wonderful, most notably our waitress who was as knowledgable about the food as she was about the spirits. Can't imagine having been treated better by a server. So attentive, without being annoying. We will be back.
The restaurant, a renovated train depot, is charming- dark, romantic, and beautiful on the inside. The outdoor patio looked inviting, but not in August heat. The fall though, is approaching.
Ate every bite of my pork loin and summer vegetable hash. The waitress' drink recommendation was perfect. For me the prices make this a special occasion place, but I do like that I feel that I got more than I paid for.

Went for Sunday brunch and
Went for Sunday brunch and it was great! No wait, though we went with a reservation. Got to sit outside, where there is a nice little patch of grass and a balcony. No long wait with food or drinks and with the food being so fresh it was delicious! I have and definitely will continue to recommend H. Harper Station to others. Can't wait to come back for dinner and definitely try the old fashioned doughnut holes!

This is a great place for a late night drink with excellent food. The wait staff was superb. The drinks were innovative and tasty. The food was very good. I will be back.

Great For Groups
I had to add to my group and though the manager on duty explained there were two other large groups so they couldn't move mine, the owner called me the next day to say he moved some things around to accommodate our change of group size. He was very gracious and I appreciated the effort and excellent customer service. The overall atmosphere was lively, warm and inviting. We had a great time. The food was delicious, we all sampled several of the small plates and got entrees. We almost all ordered desserts, good idea. One of the ladies didn't care for her cake at all, they took it back and didn't charge her for it. They also accommodated our request for separate checks happily. One of the group recommended the place and I know I'll be back!

one of the best
Friday night was definitely one of the best experiences I've had at a restaurant in apng time. Our server was AMAZING, the food was OUTSTANDING, and the bartender was INCREDIBLE. It's the first time I've ever been and not ordered the burger, which I felt very uneasy about at first. But the spring chicken with cornbread dressing and pan gravy was a hand's down winner. H Harper is by far one of the best restaurants in Atlanta. Thank you again for everything.

Pappy on shelf
Great staff and food. We went there to sample Pappy Van Winkle bourbon. They had 10, 15, 20, and 23 years!

Wow ! The drink names alone....
When you walk in you are taken in by the exposed brick fancy grandma-chic chandeliers and attentive wait staff.
My friends and I travel for work to ATL once a year and wanted a non-chain spot so we ended up here and couldn't be happier .
All the drinks are prepared prohibition style = quality liquor , ice cubes that melt slowly and infused syrups . Even the virgin drinks are prepared with ingredients that make your palate dance !
All the entrees were great -- Baloney sandwich, scallops , Cracker Jack with bacon pair well with the funky drink menu .
I hope more people support this place , we went for an early dinner but they do serve brunch and Sunday dinner .
