About Cooper Pub

Cooper brings European style to a warm, friendly pub with food that is a destination in itself. The menu includes hearty pub classics with and without twists, vegetarian and ethnic specialties, lighter dishes to satisfy wee cravings, and homemade soups and sauces. Our happy hour highlights a round-the-clock sense of value, with a diverse appetizer menu and loads of drink options. Our Wee Lunch, which includes salad, fries and wee sandwich or burger, is perfect if you normally don’t split or share items. We haven’t limited ourselves to traditional Irish fare – healthy choices abound which will satisfy your hard-working appetite any day of the week.

The Pub Life is our heart. Relax with a newspaper and a 2 Gingers Whiskey, invite some friends for stimulating conversation over perfectly poured pints, or engage in some old-world-inspired friendly competition over a game of darts or billiards.

Whichever you choose, come in. Make yourself at home. Stay a while.

Paying homage to our geographical heritage, we have christened our secluded private dining / party space the “Cutting Room”, evoking the activity that ensures perfection and passionate attention to detail. (Just don’t end up on the cutting room floor…)

The Cutting Room features slide-up windows that open onto our main bar, allowing you to control the privacy of your event. Cut your whiskey with ginger ale to enjoy our signature Big Ginger, or with orange juice, lemon and fresh ginger for our O’Ginger. If you prefer your whiskey uncensored, we feature a wide variety of premium and special reserve varieties that perform nicely either neat on the rocks.

Book the Cutting Room for your meeting, cocktail party, special dinner, or the big game – a 50” flat-screen plasma television, slyly masked in the beautiful mill-work and laptop-compatible, will facilitate all your audiovisual needs.

Love the atmosphere of Coopers. The food however was not that great. My husband and a friend had the fish and chips and the breeding was very heavy. My other friend and I had the sea bass and mine was bland and dry. We may go back but we wouldn't rush to do so.

Our server was really slow and then forgot to put our food order in. It was very slow and I'm not sure why everything took so long. We were also not impressed that there was no happy hour. We only ended up having 1 drink here and left for Craves Happy Hour.

First time visit. Good food. Centrally located in the West End. A tad noisy due to being happy hour. Impressive looking. Would go again, but not during happy hour, just to see if is quieter.

We were going to Cooper's Pub for the first time for pre-movie dinner with friends. I was not expecting much....thinking chain food....but all of us were pleasantly surprised and would definitely go there again. Food was very good. Everyone liked their dishes. Dishes were pleasing to eye. Service was good....could have been just a bit more engaging. Would recommend it!

Menu is great, lots of variety and interesting things. Prices are very reasonable. Service was very slow. They must have been short two waiters. We waited to give our order, waited 45 minutes for food. Food came all mixed up. One person's potatoes with another person's eggs, etc. They were gracious about correcting.

We went to Coopers to have the Vincent burger - never had it at the actual Vincent's so nothing to compare it to, but the burger was very good. Stuffed with cheese and pulled short rib. I have to say neither I nor my husband noticed any short rib, but the burger was good anyway. Very good service, waiter had the bartender make a special cocktail that wasn't on their cocktail list. The manager came around to most tables, if not all, to see how the dinner was. This is a bit of a drive for us, so may not come back until the weather is better. Parking in this area is pretty bad, especially on a cold January night. There are ramps but it's a walk and the traffic flow is not well layed out.

Six of us ate here before seeing a movie at the Ion theater. It was a much bigger restaurant than I expected and didn't really have much of a "pub" atmosphere., but otherwise a nice ambience. Regardless, they had an extensive menu, good HH menu and the staff were friendly and efficient. They had a good stout on tap!! Noise level was good--could converse easily. The parking ramp was full and that presented a problem, but that's not the restaurant's fault.

We had a delightful dinner with friends that we hadn't seen for a while. Morgan our waitperson was very understanding and did not rush us. Her suggestions for dinner were excellent. We ordered. meatloaf, fish and chips, steak and mushroom pie , and all of them were very good. The friendly atmosphere, excellent service, an outstanding waitperson and the varied menu would certainly make us return.

We had a very nice dinner at Coopers. Our waitress was outstanding. Easy and fun to talk to. She made some great recommendations. We sat off to the back slightly and it was easy to hear each other. Fun atmosphere, easy to see a game on tv do some people watching. We really like that area. I had the Mac and cheese with bangers and she had the Reuben. Nicely done.
