Was there on Easter in the evening. Much quieter than when I have been there previously. Server was outstanding and food was good. My guest and I were able to sit a visit for 2 hours.

Great Place to Eat
Very good service, food and general atmosphere. We went early evening so the seating was quick, food was superb and the noise level on the east side dining area was reasonable enough for a good table discussion.

I enjoyed the interior of the restaurant and the appetizers were delicious but the selection of beer was not what I expected. I knew this was an Irish Pub but figured they would have a few more domestic beers on tap for people who love beer just not the ales and dark beers that Cooper's offers. If you like specialty beers and dark ales this is the place for you!

Great for breakfast/brunch
Cooper is our neighborhood pub - this was our first time having breakfast there however. We arrived when they open at 10am and sat at the bar. The bar side filled up soon but was not overcrowded. The breakfast menu is hearty and satisfying. Great options for everyone. Coffee is good and strong too. The bar tender was our server - which was a nice change from someone coming to your table. We'll be back again for another morning repast.

A great brunch!
First time for me and will be heading back! Brought family for a birthday brunch and had great food, great service and a wonderful time! Our server went above and beyond what we have experienced with servers at other restaurants recently. One of the best brunches in town; perfect for families with "little ones"; and, priced right!

Great food. I had the corned beef and cabbage. It was really good and a good sized portion. My wife had the hanger steak which was also very good. We started with the artichoke dip which came with garlic bread and pita crackers. It was good, although I really wanted to try the rueben spring rolls. Saw several sandwiches that were huge and looked really good as well.
For my birthday, they gave me a complimentary piece of cake. No singing which I appreciated.

Service was great, food was good. We will be back for sure.

An Irish Pub for Eating
A beautiful setting, but not just an Irish pub.The food is great and varied. I have had half a dozen different entrees, ranging from pan-fried walleye to meatloaf to vegetable curry, and they have all been delicious. Prices are very reasonable, with most dinners in the $10-15 range. Try the pan-fried walleye for the closest thing you've had to a shore lunch. The deep-fried walleye in the fish and chips is not as good, so get the cod.The curry is surprisingly good, with condiments to adjust the heat on the side. All the vegetable sides are fresh and not just potatoes -- braised kale the other night. Desserts are sized for one, but then again they are only $3. Fast becoming our favorite restaurant.

Tables are spaced far enough apart to allow for a quiet lunch meeting. Excellent service. Convenient free underground parking.

Great Happy Hour! We went for dinner, but ended up ordering off the HH menu. Made for a very affordable dinner.

We had a group of 6, everyone found something on the menu that they really enjoyed. The service was terrific and we really had a great time!!

Our party of 6 ate at Cooper
Our party of 6 ate at Cooper Pub on a busy Friday evening. We were ushered quickly to our reserved table. The server was excellent, he was attentive and prompt, he made good suggestions concerning drinks and menu items and had a great sense of humor which kept us laughing. The food was excellent, everyone in our party enjoyed their entrees. We'll be going back to Cooper Pub again!
5/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my first time here. A few friends recommended it, and now I'll be recommending it to other friends!
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
as always, we received prompt and excellent service at Coopers, very accomodating for groups!

Sunday brunch w/extended "fam"
I found the actual breakfast items offered for brunch were not that plentiful. Also, I need to eat gluten-free and there were definitely not many options for me. What I did have was good, and I believe the other diners were happy with their food, just not quite the brunch menu we had hoped for.

Old Guys Birthday Party
Four of us celebrate our birthdays together each year and this is the first time we did so at Coopers. At first our table was in an area that made it hard for us to hear each other and we talked to the waitress and she checked and we were able to move to a back room which was very quiet and we had a wonderful time. The service was great, the food excellent, and all was very good.
5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
It is rare these days to find a restaurant where the food is good the ambience is pleasant and a conversation is possible . We will be back to enjoy Cooper Pub .
5/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had brought a birthday
We had brought a birthday cake with to have at the end of our meal, but were told at the very end that there was a 20.00 fee to have our own cake on the property. I completely agree with having a cake fee, but I wish they would have told us this right away.

Flash mob evening!
It was noisier than I would have liked but we got used to it pretty quickly. People were having a good time all around the place and when the Flash Mob started their dance, the place was crazy! All in all it was a really fun experience but I wouldn't go there again during dinner hour on the weekends if I wanted to have a nice conversation, it's just too noisy.
6/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved the atmosphere, high ceilings, big windows, privacy and space between tables. The reuben was excellent as was the quinoa salad that the sever suggested. Never had a salad like it- fresh, light, colorful and full of flavor. Portion size was perfect. Service was friendly and attentive. Also great prices for the quality of food.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
The best Reuben Sandwich I've ever eaten!! That bread was fabulous! Loved the summer sangria too.

Irish Pub Feel
Cooper is a lovely place for lunch. It is definitely more casual at lunch than in the evening. Reasonably priced and very delicious food.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
So comfortable we stayed too long!
It was only suppose to be a lunch break, but we were so comfortable we stayed too long. Our server Steve was not one of those pushy servers who try to get the table cleared, so we just relaxed and didnt notice the time pass. I've already suggested I meet there again with a different group of friends.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I don't like chain restaurants but we had a cmte mtg here & ordered a few appetizers off the happy hour menu - they were yummy.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lunch at Cooper's
Our servers' were very good and attentive. My walleye was lightly breaded and had and excellent flavor. The tartar sauce was light instead of the usual heavy, flat-tasting kind. The French fries were tasty, but alas, not crispy. My friend had a quinoa salad with salmon that she enjoyed. Our summer cocktails had great flavor. I would definitely go there again!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Lunch Spot
I've been to Coopers for lunch and dinner several times. The wait staff is always pleasant and attentive, and the food is great.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I really enjoyed sitting at the restaurant. It was my first time, there and my first time at the Westend ( except the movie theater) I loved the area, the food, the restaurant, everything. The deserts were wonderful

Perfect Evening Outside
The weather was just perfect to sit outside, and we did just that. Service was good and the food was average.

Great Pub Food!
The place has a terrific look, but it's quite noisy. The service was excellent and they had a nice selection of beers. The steak and mushroom pie was delicious. The fish and chips (walleye) was excellent. The biggest disappointment was that the kids macaroni and cheese was a box variety, yet they had homemade on the regular menu. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys the pub type fare.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We liked everything about the restaurant and food except for one thing. One person in our party expressly asked for his poached eggs to be very soft - runny- but they were served very hard. He did not ask to have them replaced as if would have delayed him being able to eat at the same time as the rest of us. I, personally, would have asked for fresh eggs.
The server was very knowledgeable and pleasant. We here checked on and got refills of water and coffee, as needed.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great like always!
Coopers Pub has consistently given us high quality food and service. This time, the Breakfast Hamberger was really really good (with a Stela Artois).
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Their quinoa salad with salmon was glorious! We both had it and it was delicious, my guest asked if I was going to lick the plate because I was trying to get every last bit.

Service and Food were excellent, including suggesting that my parents split there dish instead of ordering two. It was still plenty of food for them. My only complaint would be that the noise level in the restaurant did make it hard to carry on a conversation.

Department work lunch. The food and service were good. The noise level (there were five of us) was way too loud. Difficulty hearing the person next to me. I would not bring my mother (despite the good food) as should would not be able to hear anything over the noise.

Great last minute change in plans!
My wife and I had originally planned on going to a neighboring bar and grill for food and music. We decided at the hour before leaving our hotel room to check out the Cooper Pub. What an excellent idea! Great ambience, the food was excellent - well above our expectations, and free music to top the night off. And if that wasn't enough, we were pleasantly surprised with a bill that was much lower than we had expected. We will definitely be visiting again and would recommend to others.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Surprisingly good food
The corned beef and cabbage was very tasty...with carrots and red potatoes too. Another at my table got a curry dish that was fantastic. We didn't expect that one to be on the menu. It was a little dark starting at 7pm...and quite noisy. But it IS a pub, so that wasn't too unexpected. I'd go back for the food for sure.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun Evening Out
I booked this restaurant to surprise my husband - we've been to Ireland a few times and I was really craving some good ol' Irish food. We were ten minutes late for our reservation (tried to call but no one picked up), but they still had a table waiting for us. I requested either a booth or high-top and they had both readily available. :) I was very impressed with that, even after we were late (shame on us!).
If you're looking for the low-ceiling, small-town pub feel, this is not your place.
Our food was varied. My walleye sandwich was bland - I ended up putting my salad on my sandwich for more taste/texture. However, my husband's corned beef and cabbage was outstanding. The meat was very tender.
Overall, we had a great night.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service
Went for brunch with girlfriends. We were promptly seated and served right away. The food definitely delivered! We will be returning to check-out their happy hour.

Saturday Night Social Dinner
The pub was very busy, but we were seated very promptly at our reservation time. Service was terrific and friendly. Food was pub food (what would you expect?) but was good. The atmosphere was busy and noisy, but not so much that you couldn't have a conversation at your table.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went there before seeing Wicked. We were all dressed up and celebrating my 10 year olds birthday. The waitress was fabulous and the food was great--cheese plate, hamburger, walleye! The waitress even brought out a divine piece of chocolate cake for my daughter's birthday with a candle on it! The only thing that was sort of bothersome was the noise level, very loud, sometimes we couldn't even hear each other talk. Also it was very beautiful!
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time at Coopers and we had a wonderful time. We had a small wait so we were able to enjoy the huge bar. the bar tender was alot of fun and our drinks were made quickly. Our waitress was wonderful. She was in a great mood and we had alot of fun with her as well. I had her check something for me on the menu and she was prompt in getting my answer! The food was excellent and we really enjoyed the variety on the menu. It arrived hot and we were impressed with the food runner. He got all of our orders correct when giving us our meals! This was really a wonderful experience and we will definatly come back. Probably with a larger group!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food. We had the fish
Good food. We had the fish and chips (above average) and their lobster-shrimp pasta special (excellent). Perfect place if you want to eat before a movie. Good vibe, efficient service, clean and good range of menu items.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went here on 10/26/13 for dinner to celebrate wedding anniversary. Cooper Pub was close to Toby Keith's in West End which is where we were headed after dinner. I had been to Cooper before but just for drinks. The food was good, in general. However, my wife had the chicken salad and the chicken was dry and flavorless. She did not like it. I had the walleye sandwich-it was good. The other party we were with had the fish and chips and they said it was good also. Good irish whiskey and beer selection.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really like the Cooper
We've been here many times. Food is always great and the service quick. Main dining area can get pretty loud. We were in the smaller room off the main this time and it was much easier to talk with each other.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
An overall excellent experience on all fronts. Will be meeting people for lunch at Cooper's twice this week.

Co-Worker Happy Hour
Booked reservation through Open Table about a week in advance for a group of 10. We arrived on time and our table was ready. Great atmosphere however it can get rather loud at time and it is difficult when in a larger group to carry on conversations from one end of the table to another. The variety and price of the appetizers was great, and the taste of the food was fantastic. We do plan on having a happy hour there again!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was not my first time at Cooper's Pub, but what made it special was the tremendous service by Jessica, our waitstaff. Her friendliness, and right amount of attentiveness, is what should be the norm everywhere, but unfortunately is not always found. The food was good - had the fish and chips, of course - but I have come to expect that level of quality here. Typically enjoy the "wee lunch," which provides a smaller portion of many of the favorites, but opted for the full portion this time, which still was a reasonable sized portion. Nice pieces of cod, with minimal breading. So, good food, great help - what more can you want?!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, good service, good atmosphere, decent prices. Love this place, and we will be back.

A Wee Lunch
An Irish Pub and restaurant that offers a good selection of menu items and a comfortable atmosphere. I especially appreciated the Wee lunch choices, a smaller version of 5 of their main entree items including fries and a salad. I had the fish and chips and it was excellent, tender fish, not over cooked with a crunchy batter, not heavy like so many I've tried.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great happy hour!
Cute, corner place! We loved the Reuben rolls (like egg rolls) and thought the $1 hamburgers were as good as any we've had off a regular menu.
