We just arrived in Harper's Ferry and were looking for a nice restaurant to start off our week. This place hit the spot! Some reviews on Trip Advisor said that there were "no good restaurants in Harper's Ferry." Well maybe that was written before April (when this place opened), because Canal House has food that are creative spins on old favorites and locally sourced to boot! When you walk in, you can even see straight into the kitchen, which I think is a nice touch and a way of displaying transparency about how your food is prepared.
We ate practically everything on the menu. The pimento cheese appetizer was creamy and fresh. If you go, get the "John Brown" entree! Very tender and tasty and clearly made with grass fed beef.
Overall, the food was tastefully presented and not overly heavy. Desserts were even excellent. I could tell the raspberries were fresh and they source ice cream locally.
I don't think they serve alcohol at all, but you can buy beer or wine and bring it with you with a small $5 corking fee. A minor inconvenience, but if you come in on a wait, you can wander down the street and pick up something.
It's a small restaurant run by a couple, I believe and it was a delightful evening and fun to talk to them about how things were going. Only seven tables in the restaurant and I'm told it gets busy on the weekends, so you might have to be ready for a wait!
