Great staff and delicious burgers! You can build your burger yourself from the menu or just choose one from the menu. Lettuce, pickle etc. is served on the side of the burger so you can choose yourself how much you want in your burger or if you choose to leave it out. We ended up visiting Harper's twice for a...

Is a nice place to eat a burger and drink a beer, you can choose a burguer between the different options they have ou choose each ingredient to prepare your own burguer.

Went to Harper's for lunch with family. I had the sliders platter for $15.50. 3 little specialty burgers #6,7,10. First bite was good - mushroom and beef. Meat was a little dry - too well done and not very juicy. The other two sliders were similar in taste. Had a bite of the basic burger- good size burger but again... More

Liked the simplicity of the menu and speed of service. You can pick your own burger, size, bun, toppings and sides. Waitress was quick and efficient, yet friendly. The waffle fries and burgers are super tasty.

We were taken to Harpers Burger Bar by a good friend while visiting Kingston. It was busy on a Saturday night and the restaurant seems to be popular with the Queen's University crowd. We lucked out and only had to wait a few minutes for a table in the busy restaurant. Our server was very friendly and suggested the Smokehouse... More

Had the Lala Turkey burger. If you are in Kingston and like burgers, do yourself a favor and stop in. If the mood strikes, try a local beer with your choice, I had the McKinnon Brothers - 8 man, went well with my burger meal choices. You wont be disappointed
