Booked reservation on New Years eve. Not a lot of patrons in the restaurant. Service was good, but food was not up to expectations and was overpriced. Paid $34 for cool, overcooked filet mignon, 3 cold grilled jumbo shrimp and undercooked asparagus. Hopefully it was just a bad night. We do not plan to back anytime soon.

Disappointing visit !
The food was ok but the service was terrible. The server lacked any experience.
We ordered an appetizer (artichoke dip), two salads, and two dinners along with drinks. After a while, One salad arrived and we had to remind her that we ordered an appetizer. After a while that arrived and immediately afterwards, the second salad arrived. Within 1 minute (no kidding!) the dinners arrived ! There we were with an appetizer, salads, and our dinners all at the same time !

we are frequent customers of Harper's Carolina Place and usually satisfied. we are fans of the thin crust pizzas and the nachos. This time we tried the smoky wings as appetizer and were disappointed. They were quite rubbery and chewy although had a nice sauce. I also noticed the Health Department grade was down to 91.something which is not good compared to others.

We are frequent customers of Harpers at Carolina Place which is superior to South Park Harpers. The pizzas are best in town for thin crust. the nachos are also among the best. the noise level of music was irritating and interfering with conversation but the waitstaff was able to get it turned down. The nachos were good but not great today, kind of a mess rather than more carefully layered. it was difficult to get the chip with the chicken, cheese, guac, and jalapeños all together

There are a few things Harpers at Carolina Place does better than others. The wood fired pizzas with very thin crispy crusts are outstanding. The smoked chicken nachos are outstanding. The pulled pork is excellent

The Hostess was friendly, however, our Waiter, Mark, was not personable at all. Other than the cook, we were the only black party and it appeared that Mark was uncomfortable. He did not give eye contact and he appeared uncomfortable. He gave his spill in a fast manner and there was no rapport. It was definitely routine for him.

WE went during restaurant week in July , and I was disappointed with my
pecan crusted trout....There was not pecan crust...just a piece of fish.
Calamari was well done...My husband's piece of Salmon was super small.
Our friend had the combo ribs and brisket, and he said is was ok.
and the Pasta dish was just ok.
We might give the restaurant another try.

Accolades and applause to our server Hanna!
She was amazing! Hanna was humble, very professional and demonstrated a sincere interest in all of our needs! All dinner selections were superb!
Both my husband and I have patronized Harper's for many years when we lived in NC and now revisit our favorite lunch and dinner spot upon our many return visits to the area! Thanks to all employees who continue to make our visits most memorable!
Our heartfelt thanks again to Hanna! We will return in the Fall!
Not up to Harper's Standards
We have been to Harper's many times...both locations. While this one was "good" overall it was the least enjoyable dining experience we have had at your restaurants. I got one of my usuals (brisket) and the other two in the party got pulled pork and rotisserie chicken. The brisket was very fatty and was dry...almost like leftover from lunch or the day before. The other two entrees were "ok" and their comments left it at that. We don't complain so we didn't mention it to the waitress. I'm not sure it would have made any difference to the waitress as she was not engaged in our service or needs...a first for service. Perhaps just a bad day...it happens to all of us.....though that is not suggest the service was 'bad' but rather to say it was 'adequate in that the waitress took the order, got the food out and brought the check.
While we won't be in a rush to go to Harper's we will not let this experience diminish the long term dining relationship we have had. But, something WAS dramatically different and since you asked in good faith, I have responded in the same spirit.
Great for the Family
I took my wife and pre-teen daughters to Harper's for Mother's Day lunch. We liked the ambiance and smell of the BBQ as we walked. The inside uses reclaimed old brick and has a nice warm feel. We sat down right away thanks to our reservation. My wife and I split two BBQ dishes. The ribs were excellent, super tender, juicy, very flavorful. Possibly the best ribs I have had in Charlotte (and I eat at all of the BBQ places.) We also had the pulled pork. It was very lean, but juicy and tender. Really good. We loved the mac and cheese, too. The kids devoured their cheeseburger sliders and their rabbit food (celery, carrots, peppers, and ranch dressing.) The kids also loved the kids menu which had lots of fun activities on it. We all loved the dessert. The kids got homemade cookies with their meal and we split a dark chocolate flourless cake. We look forward to going back again.
Go to choice.
We love coming to the Carolina Place Harper's and food is consistently good. My husband thinks their pizza is the best in town. We both agree they have the best nachos in town. And I had their guacamole burger last week which was delicious. We also like the key lime pie. Service is always good too. Only reason I did not give 5 stars overall is that the water is undrinkable. Our waitress offers to give us diamond springs from the bar, which is considerate.
Fun night out with friends
We dined out on Sunday evening. The restaurant was active, but not overly so. Our server was very pleasant and professional, not rushing us in any way. The noise level was low, enabling us to converse without raising our voices at all. All in all, an excellent experience.
First time there and I liked the selection of food and pricing. Attractive interior and convenient to the mall for shopping before or after. The food was served in a timely manner and was Hot when delivered. Can't say the food was gourmet, but it was tasty, ample servings and good selection. A good place to eat!
Reminds me of an Applebee's or that type of chain
Food was fine, nothing to write home about, but nothing to complain about either. I got the guacamole burger and it was good. Reasonably priced. Our server was attentive. The feel of the place and the menu remind me of an Applebees, or a TGI Friday's. Something like that. It's fine, and I'd go back if I was in the mall and got hungry or wanted a beer or something, but I wouldn't make a special trip there. Not a date night type of place or special occasion place. Just somewhere to go if you're hungry and close by. One thing I just remembered as I'm typing this, is we ordered wings for an appetizer and the menu just said wings. When we got them they were grilled wings, not fried, and had no sauce on them at all or on the side. Just plain, grilled wings. They actually weren't bad but it wasn't what I was expecting. You'd think it'd describe that somewhere on the menu, or the server would mention it. Maybe it's me but when I get an order of wings, I'm expecting fried wings tossed in buffalo sauce. It's not a huge deal but just something to keep in mind if you plan on ordering wings.

My husband and I had brunch on Valentine's Day here and it was fantastic. The French toast was amazing and my husband tried the chicken and waffles which were also very good. Each came with cheddar grits that were to die for! Will definitely go back.
Always Hit or Miss here
Harper's overall is not a bad establishment, but I have found their service model to be inconsistent whether at this location, or in Southpark. I get the feeling that Harper's is a J. Alexander's wannabe. The food is consistently pretty good, but on one visit you get good service, and the next visit, your waiter or waitress disappears on you, or seems clueless about what you ordered. Since it would appear that Harper's does a pretty good business, maybe good service is really not a priority to the Management team, and of course most people just seem to be happy to put up with a mediocre experience. So, for mediocre dining, come to Harper's.
The traffic and parking are horrible !!
I hate to say it but as much as we enjoy eating at Harper's this past weekend just turned us off completely. The mall is always crowded. It lacks parking space so to go there just for a restaurant can be a turnoff !! Now they are doing road construction to which it took us over 2 hours to do a normal 1/2 hour drive. There's nothing that makes it worth it to go to Pineville during rush hour or the weekends. I worked in Pineville for almost a year. During rush hour, it took a half hour to drive 4 miles !!! Perhaps if I get a day off during the week, we'll try it again, but it won't be for a long time.
We ate here during the Charlotte feast event. The service was ok. The waitress wasn't very friendly. The asapargus tips didn't appear to be steamed at all...they were raw. My husband's steak he asked for medium well & it was medium rare. I wasn't impressed at all with the food or the service. I wouldn't recommend Harper's to anyone else at this time.
Very nice lunch.
We went for a late lunch/early dinner, following a movie. The mall was very busy. We had reservations and were surprised, even given the odd time, that the place was pretty empty. The food was excellent as well as the draft beer selection. Will certainly go again.
Harpers has best pizza and nachos in town
We are frequent customers of Harpers, Carolina Place, which is consistently better than Harpers at South Park. The wood fired thin crust pizza is outstanding. I request no burned edges and served right from the oven. Wait staff are accommodating. The smoked chicken nachos are the best nachos in the city. Incredible flavor and texture and thin crisp chips.
Please don't eat at Harper for the Holidays.......
On this Day after Christmas the staff made it clear they din't want to be there and they wanted to get us in and out a quickly as possible . I kind of get it but it was still a holiday celebration for us I would encourage them to find other jobs that don't force them to work on weekends and holidays.
