The first few times I visited it was for business dinners. I thought that it was an all-around nice place. Then one night I ordered the ribs - they are the real deal! This last time, we went with another couple and their 10 yo daughter. We were promptly seated and served by a nice waitress. We started off with... More

My husband and I had brunch at Harper's yesterday and it was absolutely wonderful. Service was fast and friendly and the food was great. My husband had the Chicken and Waffles and I had the Crab Cakes Benedict. Both were delicious.

My husband was happy with his meal, he ordered the combo plate which was ribs and pulled pork.The only thing I didn't like was my husband ordered a Arnold Palmer and he was... More

Me and a group of 4 friends went to Harper's for brunch on Sunday 6/28/15. First when I walked up to the host she was complaining to another host about another customer. I asked to be seated outside and she stated that it would be 10 minutes. However, there were 6 tables outside that were open. No worries, so we... More

I think it's a management issue because I've eaten here about 3 times over the past couple of years and I always get the feeling that they try to hire hostesses based on their looks rather than their ability to service the guests. They always seem clueless about seating and other basic hosting duties. The overall quality of the food... More

We stopped at this restaurant on our way back from Myrtle Beach. Walking up to the place I was thinking maybe we were a little under dressed but once we got inside I felt very comfortable the staff was very welcoming as well. Our server was very nice, patient and attentive with our children and us . The food and... More

I have eaten here many times and have always liked it. However, I had a very unpleasant and hurtful experience this weekend and will NEVER return. I took my mother to lunch. She has a disability and uses a wheelchair for mobility. Upon arriving, I awkwardly maneuvered through the entrance. An older gentleman saw us and got up to assist...thank... More
