Taking over the spot that was once known for Ol’ West BBQ on Route 31 in Clinton, NJ is Harper’s Table Restaurant and Bar.

We have a hunch they’ll be around for a long time to come.

Harper’s Table appears to understand the fundamentals

While we have not even visited Harper’s Table yet – we already know that they’re a winner.

From the constantly full parking lot, to the fairly priced menu, and the overwhelmingly positive reviews, it’s clear that they hit the spot.

Also, it appears they’ve cleaned up the place quite a bit. The layout is the same, but “renewed” with re-purposed materials from Hunterdon County, NJ barns! How cool is that?

[A little background – we don’t eat out much. Home cooks here. We also are the types that rarely drink alcohol outside. Our bar-drinking days are behind us. But if and when we do decide to hit up a restaurant – Harper’s Table will be the next on the list!]

What Harper’s Table says

Here’s how they present themselves:

“Harper’s Table is a family business that was borne of the idea of bringing a community together through food, drink and friendly service. We offer simple, quality American cuisine along with a full bar in the quaint setting of Annandale, NJ.

Our family renovated the property with nearly 100% recycled materials from old barns in Hunterdon County. The result is an experience that feels warm, unpretentious and comfortable. So bring your family and friends and join us in our cozy little spot. We hope to see you soon!”
