    We had a family (10 of us) dinner here and everybody was very happy with all aspects. The service was excellent and the food was interesting and very good. The pot roast nachos were a big hit. Formerly the Merchant House, which we also enjoyed many times, it still an imaginative and reasonably priced menu. Would gladly recommend this restaurant.

    Never been there but decided to eat there last minute, glad we did. We ate in the dining area but there was also an interesting bar area. My wife had the steak and I had a burger- both very good - tasty and presented well. Service was fast and friendly. We would go back anytime.

    This was my second visit and I was eager to return as I remember the food being delicious on my initial visit. My dining companion and I shared a salad and it was very good. The waitress was kind enough to divide it into 2, without us asking her, and bring us our own plates. I ordered the duck carbonara and was disappointed. Several pieces of duck were hard and "crunchy" and the dish in general was too bland for my taste. Service was excellent and I would have expected this as the restaurant was not crowded. Maybe she was new to the restaurant but The waitress could not answer some questions we had about 2 of the dishes on the menu.

    We have dined here many times and keep going back. We are demanding and enjoy trying out new restaurants, so the fact that we go back again and again speaks volumes. Scallops with mushroom risotto is a favorite.

    Very nice restaurant. Onion soup was a miss. Bland. Salad was tasty. Watermelon needs to hibernate from the menu for the season. Time for an updated fall/winter menu in my opinion. Owners are very attentive and professional. I will be back for another try.

    Love the food and decor of Tierneys copperhouse. Brought our son and future daughter in law for dinner. They loved it too, especially the seasonal beer choices. My husband had the swordfish special and it was cooked to perfection. All entrees were delicious and beautifully printed, dessert was delicious as well.

    We have been to Tierney's Copperhouse 6-7 times this year. It has become our go to place. We have brought several friends here who have also enjoyed their experience as well. The food is great and we have never experienced a bad meal here. Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed. The scallops and risotto dish should not be missed.

    I love everything I ordered. This was my 4th time dinning. And once was for a private party. Each time me and the other patrons enjoyed every part of our meal. The beet salad, scallops w/ mushroom risotto, pot roast nachos and roasted veggie quinoa are my favorites. The portions are generous and priced fairly. The gluten free and vegetarian options makes it the perfect choice for group dinning. The wine selection doesn't disappoint. Top shelf liquor too. If you haven't tried it yet definitely go. You won't be disappointed.

    Restaurant was okay - service was attentive but food was nothing special. Desserts were only fair - carrot cake was really like spice cake. Menu was a mish mash = heavy on burgers and then heavy on pricey drinks. Nothing really bad but nothing to recommend returning either.

    The place is a total gem. The food is excellent and the selection of IPAs on draft make beer lovers very happy. I loved everything from the oysters to the pork chop to the vibe to the waitress service... I was also able to eat high quality food while watching the Yankees' game. That's a rare combination.

We all had something different and we all cleaned out plates and I am looking forward to going back. The service was pleasant and timely and the atmosphere very comfortable.

    Great decor but that's where it ends. The food was lack luster to say least, I ordered crab cakes which were nothing special and my husband order some sort of pot roast nacho which was soggy and tasteless. Crowd was older and no vibe to speak of; to be honest I would not even go back for drinks. I will say bartenders and other employees extremely nice and welcoming.

    My husband ordered a steak medium well, it came out raw.... my husband has NEVER sent food back but couldn't eat itthis way. By the time the 2nd steak came out our table of 11 ppl was finished eating. The 2nd steak came out RARE again. My husband sent it back & declined anything else, the owner apologized & took that off the bill (he didnt eat it so he shouldnt be charged anyway) and took off 2 glasses of house pinot noir. The bill was over $550... you should have done MUCH more. My baby shower was held here here & we've sent friends here too...sadly we will NEVER return... word of mouth can be a blessing or a curse...treat your patrons exceptional each dining experience.

    On a Friday night the place was not that filled. But that made the dining room very quiet and comfortable to talk to my friends. The service was great. The 3 of us each got a salad and we split 2 pizzas. The salads are quite big and delicious. Very fresh ingredients. The heirloom tomatoes were outstanding. The veggie pizza and mushroom pizza were both good. But the crusts were a little overdone. It is thin crust pizza so I am sure that is hard to get just right. Still delish and ate every piece. I wish they had a dipping sauce for the crusts. Creme brulee was delish as was the coffee. We had a great time there, not rushed.

    We have dined at Tierney's several times and have never been disappointed. This time my husband loved the Blue Point Oysters, we shared crab stuffed mushrooms, the crispy topping was perfect. We both ordered the special red snapper with a citrus glaze, excellent. Our waiter recommended a wine that was great. Looking forward to our next visit.

    We were pleasantly surprised upon walking in to Tierney's. We sat in the bar area and it had a nice ambience. Our server was prompt and courteous. The food however, was fair. We both had a salad and the greens on both were wilted and soggy. My husband had to send his back to have his shrimp cooked more. In addition, the avocado on my salad was quite brown. Will not return.

    Have been here a couple of times and it is consistently good. A little pricey, but not ridiculously so. The food is great and always fresh. The service is excellent. Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming. From the warm welcome when you enter, to the very accommodating server, to the kitchen staff, right up to the good-byes as you leave, every person you come into contact with is pleasant and helpful. Must add that I'm gluten-free and they are always more than willing to work with me and answer all of my questions. My only suggestion would be to add a gluten free baked item as a dessert option, like a GF version of their apple donut.would be amazing!! Bring your wallet, but definitely go enjoy a great dinner at Tierney's!
