Copper River Fish & Chop House
We tried the Ivory salmonWe tried the Ivory salmon and it was amazing. We love how Copper River keeps their menu fresh by consistently adding new features.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good Food in the SuburbsOur group of 4 (60+) ate here on June 1, 2013. We enjoyed the starter on the table of hummus and cheese to spread on warm tortillas.
We each had a cocktail and they arrived properly created.
The dinners we enjoyed were the Ono Wahoo/grilled, Canadian Walleye/grilled, Ahi Tuna steak /seared rare to perfection and the special of the night a small Filet Mignon stuffed with crab and mushrooms/medium rare.
Each of us was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food, presentation and quantity. Each entree came with it's own sides and one Caesar salad was ordered . We all commented that a nice salad bar would have been perfect in this restaurant.
We did not order dessert or wine.
Our server was knowledgeable and we would all dine here again.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMScallops and salmon were reallyScallops and salmon were really good. It is pretty spendy - $100 for two of us and all we had was our entrée and one glass of house wine. Modern, nice décor.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding dining experienceThe Copper River Fish & Chop House is a GEM!! The menu is extensive and our waiter was attentive and answered all questions, in detail, about the fish we were interested in. As a result, the fish we selected was prepared exactly as we wanted it and the entire meal was excellent.The restaurant is beautiful, the food was outstanding, and the service was the best we have had in a long time.I highly recommend this restaurant - it is well worth the drive to Lakeville. We will be back with other friends for sure.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly surprisedDue to a busy holiday weekend night, we couldn't get a reservation at a local restaurant.
We took a chance on Copper River and it was excellent. Fantastic dinner, nice wine choices, and excellent service.
We ordered two different types of fish and both were outstanding.
Next time, Copper River will be our first choice.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBacon jam!!They have made jam using bacon! Is any more information really needed??
Very friendly staff for our special occasion. All staff was aware of our anniversary which was a very nice touch. My wife had halibut that was very good. The bacon jam was the star of the dish! I enjoyed a flavorful bone in rib eye that was done to my order. The pre meal hummus was very good but awkward to eat with the portions of grilled tortilla wrap. Would have been more enjoyable on a toasted bread of some sort we felt. Both of our martinis were great also.
We'll be back to try more martinis and some of the appetizers!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMKeep Copper River in the hoodEach time I have been to Copper River over the past few months it has gotten better. We always have great service and excellent food! This is a gem in an unlikely location and needs to be kept in the neighborhood.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food and great service.We had great service and food. The early dinner menu was great!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day BrunchGood in the buffet was very good but would have liked more options. They are known for their seafood and fish and there weren't many options there. Everything tasted great though. The server was super friendly and very helpful. We will definitely be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch: What an excellent surprise!Great food, great atmosphere for Mother's day, great service equals an overall excellent experience. I can't wait to try lunch and dinner! Highly recommended!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPlus...I don't like buffetsThe plan was for my parents to drive up from Waseca Mn so I was to find a place between there and Eden Prairie. I tried making reservations for brunch on Mothers Day to Porterhouse in Lakeville. When they were booked, I searched for what was near. My parents and I were very impressed on how they greeted us, served us and continued to come by and ask how our experience was. Not only our waitress but also the "table cleaning guy" would ask. I believe the manager even came by to ask us how we enjoyed our meal. The buffet was AWESOME! It was a select amount of breakfast and lunch options. It was not overwhelming. The walleye was the best and I also enjoyed green beans. The deserts were awesome too. Thank you! Awesome job!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb brunch!Went for Mother's Day. There was a nice variety of breakfast and lunch choices. Everything was displayed beautifully and looked and tasted delicious. The buffet was kept clean and restocked often. Service was exceptional. This was one of the best brunches I have ever been to, and I have been to many!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit toThis was our first visit to Copper River Fish and Chop House. It was a mothers day brunch. We will dine at regular time in the near future to see what the restaurant is like. Everything for the brunch was good to very good and our server was excellent.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Brunch @ Copper Riverselection of items from the buffet was great, both breakfast & lunch items. Staff was very good @ keeping buffet stocked. Food quality was good overall w/some exceptions; noticed several slices of burnt french toast. Green beans had excellent flavor but should have cooked just a little longer. Flank Steak also had good flavor but should have been sliced much more thinly, like London Broil. The thicker slices resulted in meat being chewy. Walleye was great provided you got it hot & fresh; got real greasy after sitting for a while. Ham @ carving station was excellent!
Some drink specials would have been appreciated; $8 for Bloody Mary's & Cosmos was steep on top of $24 brunch price.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMYummyWe had the best time and loved the visual design of the place. They were very accomodating, I had goofed on our reservatation time and they still squeezed us in! We had a wonderful meal and prepared perfectly, my daughter loved the green flat bread. My MIL was able to substitute green beans for asparagus and we finished our meal with the best cheese cake. We all agreed we want to go back, I wish this restaurant was in our neighborhood instead of over an hour away. I know we will be back there again, its worth the drive!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMParty of 8. 2 of us orderedParty of 8. 2 of us ordered the tuna. Came without the sauce and was bland. Server fixed it promptly and we ordered something else. Manager check in to ask for suggestions. Nice job on the recovery!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AM1st timeMy wife and I loved it. Go eat there! We will definitely go again.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood gemCopper River is beautifully designed, surprisingly in fact. Filet was perfect, scallops and lamb chops were delicious.
Drinks are fun, wine is good, food is really good. great happy hour and a great outdoor patio!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful FindThe servers were quick to answer your questions, even if they did not know they found out quickly. The fish tacos we had were excellent. The sauce, the pico de gallo, the guacamole and the fresh veggies that accompanied were wonderful. The menu had many selections, and the kitchen was open to substitutions. Try their green beans almondine, the light dressing and grilled beans were surprising as they were fantastic! The steak I had was awesome, done perfectly(ribeye bone in). A great salad needs great bread. The humus(again a wonderful surprise) was complex and flavorful, but the flat bread(think manufactured tortillias) was unable to provide the proper support for such deliciousness. Leave room for dessert, the creme brulee was great.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service. DeliciousExcellent service. Delicious food. Great ambience. Only item I would pass on next time is the edamame served complimentary with flat bread.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!I enjoyed a most delectable sea bass. The menu was wonderful and I actually had trouble making my choice (trouble I like to have).
The service was impeccable and the Old Fashioned was the best I've had outside of home.
Great place! Will return often.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyable, great wine,Really enjoyable, great wine, appetizers, and food, it was a perfect pick for our date night!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFound new Favorite food stopFood was fantastic!! We were looking for someplace that offered seafood options and we tried Copper River and we couldn't be happier about the food. One opportunity for improvement was the waiter left us a little too long between taking appetizer order and taking main course order, we had appetizers half eaten before he was back. Result was a little too long between app and main courses. However the food was SO dang good it is easy to overlook that part.
This is on our list to eat here again soon.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressive gem in south metroThis was our first time dining at the restaurant. We loved the design of the space and are hoping we can come back and dine on the patio when it's nicer outside. Our food was pretty good. Our appetizers and wine came in good time; main course was held up in the kitchen for a while. Also a bit disappointed that many fish selections were already sold out before we ordered. We ordered filet medium rare, and it came out just a touch rarer. All in all, the staff were polite, the food was impressive considering this was Lakeville-- not eat street in Minneapolis. We will recommend and we will come again!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCopper River is a fabulousCopper River is a fabulous restaurant.

Fish entree was good. We made an early reservation, and things were quiet until an extremely loud group was seated behind us.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBig city restaurant in the suburbsExcellent food. Large portions. Reasonably priced wine. My son said that the crab legs were better than what he had last time at Oceanaire.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Dining ExperienceThis was our first dining experience at Cooper River and we were highly impressed. The food was excellent and the service was exemplary. My wife and I were celebrating an Anniversary dinner and the personal touch of adding a message to our menu was a nice romantic gesture. We enjoyed ourselves so much we will be going back for Mothers Day dinner as well. Kelvin Greene and his staff are doing an excellent job!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went here for the firstWe went here for the first time for Easter Brunch.

Alex was our server and she was OUTSTANDING!!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI recommend this spot!It's still cold out so I can't comment on the outdoor dining or even the view. But the food was very very tasty. I had the pepper crusted swordfish with cognac and mushroom sauce and horseradish mashed potatoes topped with fried onion strings. DELISH. My comrades had the filet mignon (cooked exactly as ordered), the ribeye (nice but nothing special) and we had the surf and turf and the jalepeno hushpuppies for starters. Those were very nice. Jay, our server, was perfect. He is very helpful and knowledgeable about the food and the bar. He was perfectly attentive and friendly. We'll be back for sure.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis beautiful structure hasThis beautiful structure has gone through 2 other owners.....I truly hope this one survives.

Our waitor was suberb, friendly and attentive!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the hush puppiesExcellent ambiance with a good view of the fireplace flickering in the patio. Large patio would be fun to try during the warmer months. I would like to try the “early supper” option sometime, I think it was from 4-6 but I could be wrong. We had complementary grill warmed tortillas with a snow pea hummus while we were deciding on what to order. We decided on bacon and crab hush puppies for an appetizer which were melt in your mouth excellent. The wait staff was attentive.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delivered veryThe food was delivered very quickly and was excellent. My mother is 91.
