Harper House Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

We love the Harper House!!! The only thing remotely negative in my response to the questionnaire.... Was noise level. It is rather noisy in there, but where there are people there is noise. It is easy to over look when the food is that good!

First, this was very good. I don't pass out 5's lightly, so my scoring could probably be higher.
We ate there for the first time with friends this week. My wife and I are from Louisville, a foodie town. This was on par with what we find at upscale casual restaurants at home and I thought the prices were inline.
My wife had the chicken piccata. It was pleasantly filling with the right balance of cream and lemon. It was a big hit, including the left overs the next day.
I ordered the shrimp and grits. This was very filling with lots of bacon hunks and mushrooms to round out the flavors. This is more of a cajun preparation , so it may be a bit spicy for those who gravitate to the county ham/red-eye gravy based recipes. I liked it.
The other couple ordered the chicken ( a big hit for them too) and the salmon. The salmon was cooked perfectly. Good manners kept my friend from licking the plate.
The bartender gives a reasonable pour, which increased our enjoyment of the evening.
Hated to learn that they're moving, but if they keep up this good experience, it will be worth the extra drive.

I lived In the area in highschool but, not being back for over 6 years I didn't know what was around. I didn't want your avaerage dinner at your franchise restaurants because there noisy and obnoxious when your trying to have a great night with your significant other. Recommended this place and was reserved walking in but I can tell you immediately you felt the romantic atmosphere and the dim lighting really set the mood. The food was amazing and there was a lot to choose from. The Harper house is famous for there Brussels sprouts.......try them! Even if you don't like them , my wife hates them and she fell in love. The wine selection is very diverse. Waitress was amazing and due to my wife being pregnant was very flexible. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family. Truly a great experience and I will be going again!

My 4 sisters, sister-in-law, and Mom had our annual Christmas gift giving and fellowship together ( half come from out of town). This was a perfect evening! Piano playing Christmas songs, our waitress, Sam, was excellent!
Sam was very attentive and made the evening so pleasurable. Food was excellent . Great atmosphere. Love this place. So nice to have reservations for a month, come from out of town ,and have such a perfect experience. Thanks for the excellent customer service. A lost art most anywhere else.

We were visiting my sister-in-law and she highly recommended the restaurant. Upon entering you are greeted in a warm welcoming atmosphere. Our waiter was excellent and very helpful. The food is outstanding. We have lived in the Bay Area of Florida, Denver and Florida and this chef is top-notch. We heard you are leaving that location and what a shame.

Only complaint was the guy who sat people. I walked in told him I had a reservation along with my last name and he acted as if my reservation was bogus and I had no idea what I was doing. I showed him my phone along with confirmation and he continued to show his level of douchebaggery with his p-coat over a t-shirt and his attitude about my reservation. Also the waitress was pushing her new business on me because Harper house is moving to Cadiz KY

What can I say about the Harper House? It consistently has fine food, excellent service, extensive wine list.
One would expect to find a restaurant of this quality in Louisville or Nashville, but quite a surprise in Hopkinsville. Can't wait for their move to Cadiz!

Atmosphere was fantastic. Enjoyed the live music and silent film. Our food was okay, however when I went to eat my leftover chicken the next day, I discovered the chicken was raw next to the bone. Cornbread they served with dinner was dry.

Our special seating request was honored with no issue. Our server was excellent, with just the right amount of attention. He was very helpful and knew the menu well. The food was delicious as always. Will definitely return again and again.

What a little gem this place is! Ribs were amazing! Ribeye was perfectly cooked. The ham and bean soup was deliciously spicy. Service could be picked up a touch but everyone was very nice. Really enjoyed our experience.

As always, we had a lovely dinner at Harper House. The food was excellent. The atmosphere was fun and relaxing. It was a good mixture of seeing some people we knew and saying hi but also being able to have a private conversation between the four of us. The drinks were also fun and varied. I literally do not think I have ever had a bad meal at Harper House.

Food was really delicious, service friendly. Loved the smokey pork in the Asian pork buns and the taste and quality of the beef locally sourced was outstanding. Homemade pumpkin ice cream was a big hit and Graham at the bar made some enjoyable recommendations for bourbon sampling.

Super experience on a Saturday night 10/15/16. Try the cheese curds as an appetizer. The pork chop was massive and wonderfully cooked. The cajun pasta was smokey without ruining your tongue. Great date night place with excellent service. I am just sad they are moving from Hoptown to Cadiz.

We live in Clarksville and made the drive and it was well worth it. This place was recommended to us and we make time to have a date night once a month and chose to try Harper House. We are so glad we did. We will be returning soon as it was such a joy to find a place where we felt relaxed and that had such wonderful food. The atmosphere was wonderful and we really enjoyed the pianist as well. Thank you again for a great evening.

We visited Harper House for our wedding anniversary. It was a great visit overall. The only negative was that the baby back ribs were just okay. I would not recommend them, but the RIBEYE was SUPERB!! It is seasoned all the way through and every bite was tender- no steak sauce required. I love the atmosphere. I would definitely come back again.
