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.

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.

Private Party Facilities:
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.

Cooper Pub Ratings and Reviews
The wine was great, service was good. Not alot of personality but did exactly what we needed her to do. The food however was not great. The duck seemed more like pork. very firm/fatty/honestly it was a little cold and very chewy? It was a very bizarre version of duck if it was truely duck at all. The chili that my date had before the meal was also luke warm. I was very underwhelmed by the food at this establishment which is a disappointment because the atmosphere and drink were great.
Overall a two-star rating based on poor service and mixed quality of the food.
We frequent Went End regularly and hadn't been to Cooper in well over a year, partly due to their limited menu. Multiple previous experiences were positive with excellent preparation of food and good service, After viewing the current menu online, we were looking forward to returning.
Service was initially slow--no waitperson to take our drink order for 10 minutes. Nice beer selection. After ordering food, service was prompt.
The calamari appetizer was disappointing, an obviously frozen preparation of heavily battered processed strips of seafood in contrast to the lightly battered, fresh-tasting rings Cooper previously offered. The side salads were crisp, and two of our four entrees were well-prepared, the American burger and the fish and chips.
The walleye entree was an unusual preparation, pan seared and served on top of a broccoli puree and diced beets, the juice of the beets giving a strange, bloody appearance to the fish (apologies to the squeamish), and topped with what tasted like canned mushrooms--they likely weren't, they just tasted canned. The fish was unseasoned on one half and overly salty on the other.
The chef's special of halibut arrived extremely overcooked. When I told the waitress , she said she would talk to the kitchen and notify the manager. The waitress did not initiate a replacement entree to correct the kitchen's error, and the manager did not come to our table until 20 minutes later, after our table was done eating. He asked if he could bring anything else--far too late to replace the uneaten entree--so he offered a free desert, which we didn't want and declined. The manager seemed indifferent and offer no other solution to satisfy us. Afterwards, the waitress did take the fish off the bill.
We won't return until somethings changes at Cooper--too many other very good options nearby.
Cooper Pub was a great place to catch up with two old friends. Location great with free parking and convenient for shopping after. Had the Reuben, beef pie from Wee Menu. Tasty and attractive presentation on an rectangular plate wth greens, potato wedges. Good service and decor. Brought back memories of the Cooper Theater.
The experience at Cooper is always a good one and this weekend we celebrated my birthday with Sunday brunch. The Benedict Hash was inventively prepared and super delicious and the Fish and Chips were amazing as usual. Don't miss a chance to eat there because the service is always as great as the food is.
Loved this place, everyone's food was delicious from the Monte Christo to the Fish n Chips. I also had the Bacon Bloody Mary. The piece of bacon was still warm and was about a 1/2 inch think--delicious! One of my new favorite places, I can't wait to go back and try something else on the menu.
We were at the Cooper for a birthday lunch for our employees. We were seated right away but it took over 5 minutes to be greeted by our server. She seemed to be overwhelmed with tables. She was pleasant and took our orders down properly. Someone else delivered our food. We asked for sweetener for our tea and one of us ended up going to another table to get some. We also waited a long time to be asked for a dessert order. We would of ordered dessert but we ended up on a time crunch and left to get DQ dessert to take back to the office. Part of the group stayed behind and waited for the check. They came back to the office a good 10 minutes after we came back with DQ! I would not recommend this place for a business luncheon. It was not busy but it did not appear to have enough staff for the tables that were there.
We went to cooper's for our anniversary, the waiter was great lots of great suggestions, I like my burgers MR, most places either won't do that or they send it to you MW. Mine was perfect! ! Everything hot and fresh, they didn't serve the appetizers, soup and entree all at the same time like most restaurants. Every thing was timed perfectly.
I loved the ambiance in Cooper, beautiful and spacious. What I would like to
see change is having softer music plying during the lunch hour when there are
fewer people there. Instrumentals would be nice and classier than pop music.
It was to loud and distracting for conversation since there was a light crowd.
Food was great and service was good at first. But then the server cleared our table and drinks without offering refills (we weren't drinking alcohol). She made it clear we had overstayed our welcome chatting at the table even though there were open tables and no wait.
Great pub in the west end. The pressure to perform is high for an Irish pub to serve awesome fish and chips. Cooper does not disappoint! Huge slab of hot, crunchy, perfectly fried fish, and big planks of crisp chips. Their tomato soup is my fave, topped with Cooper's toasty cheddar crouton.
And Irish whiskey, too!!
Decent food. Went with a steak pie. Good taste and portion. Also had soup and chicken shots, were good. Nothing popped out as being special and Malbec was really bad. Only being $7.50 a glass I wasn't expecting much but after looking up the brand, I saw it is a $6.00 bottle. Tasted like a sweaty pair of socks...I assume. Stay away!
I really enjoy Cooper's Pub. They have updated their menu recently and now it's even better. Great happy hour prices and items and a fun environment. This most recent visit our waitress was great. Always checking in on us. Didn't hesitate to tell us the specials and what was going on that day.
