Harper House Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
This was a great surprise as I had not heard of Harper House before looking for a place in Hopkinsville. It was about a 40 minute drive and worth it! Very good food, loved the atmosphere. Prices were fair, food was better than goods and service was just OK. In fairness, the server was relatively new to HH.
The bad news is they are moving and will be further away.
I had read positive reviews which prompted my wanting to try this restaurant. We drove an hour to celebrate a friend's birthday. We were not disappointed. The Ahi Tuna appetizer and Roasted Oysters were wonderful. We all had different crafted cocktails which we loved. The Trout and Shrimp and Grits entrees were great. Try this restaurant out before they move to Cadiz to enjoy the current ambience. We will be going back after they move.
Our server, Will, provided outstanding service and is a definite plus to the restaurant. Great food, amazing Old Fashion drink, and good atmosphere. I am definitely returning in the near future. A+ restaurant that is a rarity these days, with the big chain restaurants. Do not change a thing other than give Will a bonus!
The VP of our company came in town from Ohio to present an award at dinner. It was a perfect setting. The table chosen for us could not have been more perfect. I mentioned the purpose of our dinner when I made the reservations and couldn't have been more pleased with the seating, waiter, food, drinks and ambiance.
Harper House staff were fabulous! Very attentive and helpful in every way. It's a fun night out, and easy to access. The filet with mashed potatoes was great, brussels sprouts were too sweet for me to enjoy. My husband had the rack of ribs which has a lot of good meat, but was dry on top. We both liked the tempura roll appetizer. Overall a fun time.
We had dinner at Harper House for Valentine's Day were they had a special 6 course meal. The ambiance downstairs seemed lovely but unfortunately we got seated upstairs where the mood was more conference-like. There was no piano upstairs and the decor was cheap looking. Not worth what we paid.
The restaurant opened at 5pm. We had a 5 pm reservation, arrived a few minutes before and had to wait (approx 10-15 mins) with others that had 5pm reservations. We didn't like the fact that people that arrived after us were seated before us; they had 5 pm reservations as well, one couple had a 515 reservation. The hostesses seemed extremely unprepared to receive guests. Not sure what the issue was but there just seemed to be a disconnect with customer care. This was a pre Valentine date (like most there that night) and if it wasn't for that we probably would've left due to the unwarranted wait.
The waitress was nice and attentive, and the food was great.
Difficult review. Very good food and physical environment. The proprietors have done a great job with the menu, training their staff and dressing up the building.
However, I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone from outside Hopkinsville. The patrons all were clearly from the same economic group of Hopkinsville, and I felt a less than friendly vibe while us "outsiders" were present. But for locals of Hopkinsville, this is a great venue for dinner.
For outsiders of different socio-economic backgrounds, I am sure the restaurant at its new location in Cadiz (not sure when they move) will hold a friendlier vibe. This includes military patrons. The proprietors have a winning menu and restaurant model.
Our choices from the menu were the Burger and Ribs. The meat on the ribs literally fell off the bone;hashbrown casserole,coleslaw and porknbeans were superb. Burger was cooked perfectly; and served with skinny fries. Service was excellent. Very enjoyable dining experience.
The atmosphere was good, a little loud for my taste. Service was excellent! Food was ok, ribeye was tough and bland, appetizers were great just not enough of the brisket. If they had brisket as a meal I would have chosen it over the ribeye. My wife had the fillet and it was not cooked to her liking and her mashed potatoes were not delicious,they tasted sweet to her. Overall it was an ok dinner, but great customer service. I would have rather gone to Longhorns for a better steak dinner.
It was a wonderful family evening. Started with a Hibiscus martini, a pink moscato, and a KY whiskey. We enjoyed sharing our entrees. We had ribeye, shrimp & grits, and a special of smoked prime rib with red potatoes and chimicurri cauliflower... delicious. Just wished the prime rib was more tender. Definitely not cooked properly, yet flavorful! Tasty side shares of hash brown casserole, bacon green beans, and the most delicious Gouda mac'n cheese. Sam was an exceptional server. She was detail and confident in her menu.
We don't go often enough, but enjoy HH every time we go.
You should go also :)
My wife and I made reservations for 20 January at the Harper House based on a recommendation from a friend. This was our first visit and certainly will not be our last. The menu options were plentiful, the portions were gracious and the taste/flavors were truly amazing. When we received the check, my wife and I were reminded that good eateries still exist that that provide great food with great prices. The folks working the front reception desk were absolutely wonderful and very much in tune with good PR. This was evident by the way they interacted with everyone who walked in . Our table was the two person table near the bar. Our waiter, Andrew (Drew), was very helpful and it showed he really knows and enjoys his job. We love the overall atmosphere of the restaurant but understand the location will soon be changing. We do look forward to eating there again
