Harper's Table in Suffolk, Virginia serves up Southern favorites in a contemporary setting with a few modern twists for good measure. There is a complete wine list here to choose from as well as a number of craft beers and other spirits used to make specialty cocktails. To begin your meal at Harper's Table, try the fried liberty duck tongues, roasted Indian rock oysters or the warm olives. The fried oyster taco is also a huge hit.
For your main course at Harper's Table, you can�t go wrong with the jumbo lump blue crab cakes. The baby back ribs and crispy fried flounder will do nicely, too.
The food is excellent, the portions are appropriate and it is not the usual fare you see in many restaurants. Whenever possible ingredients are sourced locally and as a result the menu reflects seasonal changes. Although the meats are great for me the strength in the menu starts with the vegetable preparation. If you like bourbon Harper's Table has an outstanding selection. The service is exceptional. As a local restaurant I am often surprised to see people from outside of the Suffolk area enjoying the dining at Harper's Table. It is worth the travel time!
Really outstanding food and service. Very informal but the food was anything but. Good selection from start to finish with great sides and desserts. We were really surprised to find such a top notch restaurant in old town Suffolk. We'll definitely return.
I like this restaurant very much. I've been there many times & I am never disappointed. Friendly staff. Great food.
A casual place with anything but casual food. Excellent and inventive takes on American cusine
We joined the gang at HT on anther Family Fridays dinner. Christina was wonderful as usual and everyone always has smiles on their faces, creating a great dining experience for everyone. It's so nice to go to Allan's where you're more than just another patron. And Chef Harper always prepares dishes that are to die for! The only problem...it's hard to choose. Anyone that has not dined here is truly missing out on something special!
Great food, great service, great cocktails. Best in the Tidewater.
The food and service was excellent. The noise level is too high for intimate conversation. Next time we will request a booth as our table was a bit tiny as well.
Unique twist on southern food.
This may be the best restaurant in this entire metro area. The food is fabulous, innovative and wonderfully prepared. The wait staff gets the rhythm of showing up just in time; we never felt rushed or neglected. The ambiance is simple but quiet and lovely. It is located in downtown Suffolk, a very old area down on its luck. That wouldn't dissuade me from going. Prices not too bad. My wife and I ate for about $110 including one drink apiece and tip. Well worth it.
Another fabulous night at a great restaurant... Thank you Gary and Chef Harper!
