Cooperage Inn Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We went to Sunday Brunch for our first time at the Cooperage Inn and it was beautiful - cozy, warm, nicely decorated with a very friendly staff. We took our time eating from the delicious buffet and never felt rushed.
At $31 + pp I felt it was a little steep, especially because I don't do dairy or eggs, so I don't eat much, but there were lots of choices including meats, salads, and fruits! (That is why I chose it as a "special occasion" place.)
My date tried everything including the omelettes, meats, seafood, and desserts and loved it all.
The atmosphere was very charming!
Brunch on Super Bowl Sunday was kind of quiet. Excellent food (for brunch food). Aside from standard stuff that was all good, they served things like mini chicken pot pies, assorted seafood in a really good red sauce, a nice sliced steak creation, and lots of excellent desserts. I'm not a big brunch guy as I don't like to feel so stuffed, but it really was good and my kids thought they were in heaven!
Décor was kind of old / country. Oh, the bar looked like a nice old school, cozy, copper topped bar.
Lovely dinner, with excellent food, generous portions, and friendly staff. We arrived a little early for our reservation, so had a drink at the bar while waiting for the rest of our party. Drinks were very good and fairly priced. This was our 4th time dining at the Cooperage Inn and we'll definitely be back.
One slight negative was the table setting. Our reservation was for 6 people, but one of our party got sick at the last minute so we were down to 5, which turned out to be a good thing as they'd put two tables together set for 3 on either side. Whoever would've sat in the middle's plate would have been half on one table and half on the other. Since we were one short, the odd man sat at the head end of the table and everyone had plenty of room.
We took advantage of LI Restaurant Week and had Saturday night dinner in a restaurant we've passed a dozen times. It was well worth the wait. Appetizers (baked clams and eggplant fries) were terrific, the entrees (baked Atlantic cod and swordfish) were tasty and the desserts (coconut cream pie and ice cream with fresh fruit) were the perfect finishing touch. When we first sat down the room was loud with only one empty table and a guitar player but the music and conversation balanced out and we never thought it was too loud. We're looking forward to going back for the regular menu.
As usual, the food was excellent, as was the service. When we arrived, the hostess assigned us to a small room with live music so loud that we had to ask for a different table in a different room. It seems that live musicians think we come to a restaurant to hear them play and dining and dinner conversation are incidental to the music rather that the other way around. Perhaps I’m just an old crank, but I don’t want to compete with music to hear a conversation or be heard. In any case once we moved the dinner was very pleasant. Our dinner was during Restaurant Week, so there was a special prix fixe menu that offered a full meal for $29.95. Great food at that price— how could you go wrong?
Everything was fine as we have been here multiple times. My only complaint was when we checked in we were asked if we would like to check our coats, we indicated that we did not want to. We were then made to feel as if this was not acceptable and that because we had winter coats we should check them in. I again stated that we did want to use the coat checkin and we were then told that we will need to "sit on our coats". Very Weird........
The food was exceptional. The service was great.
1- We had a reservation and were promptly seated. The drinks and appetizers came quickly but there was a long delay until our dinner was served. I know this was Restaurant Week and expected some delays but 45 minutes was too much. Since it was My Birthday we had after dinner plans so we took our dessert to go.
2- Our take home desserts were so tiny. It was a quarter the size of a regular slice. It was so disappointing especially because it was my Birthday. The dab of whipped creme was bigger than the square chunk of mousse cake!
Good food,well prepared , competent and friendly service in a nice setting. The menu is varied and you should have no trouble finding something to please you. It is a popular local spot with fair prices for the value you get. Have never been disappointed eating there.
We have been to the "Coop"several times including this past New Year's Eve. We have never been disappointed in the food, have always had friendly, professional servers, and great cocktails. The wine list is more than adequate, and we never felt that we could get a better bang for our buck elsewhere!
We went for Restaurant week, which is always a great way to try new places, so it was our first time there. We went with friends, we all agreed that it was well worth the visit. The food was good, the service excellent. The place is very nice, it was still decorated for Christmas, with a little sprinkling of Valentines day.
Cooperate Inn never disappoints. When for a quiet dinner on a Friday night. Soup of the day, a three potato soup, was delicious and the crispy eggplant fries were awesome. Our specialty martinis were worth the price, and not lacking vodka. My date ordered the crispy calamarie salad and I got the flat iron steak. Both were excellent. Cooperate Inn is our go-to date nite dinner place. We love it!
We waited 25 minutes before a server came to our table and that was after I asked one of the bus boys who our server was. The server that came did a nice job and made the effort to make up for the wait. The food was very good, especially the appetizers ( egg roll and tuna tartare). There was a musician who was way too loud for their smaller (original) room. Couldn’t have a conversation without almost yelling. Once he stopped it was much better.
My husband and I have been going to the cooperage for many years. It is a cozy, country restaurant with delicious comfort food, well at least it was. The prices went up and the food quality down. We were very disappointed. The bill came out to $150 before tip for 3 entrees and 3 glasses of wine. With mediocre food this was robbery! The service was good though.
The food was exquisite. The service was excellent- friendly, prompt, accurate and accommodating. My family came for our annual Christmas lunch with my dad. Cooperage was wheelchair accessible, which made my father feel welcome and at ease. We’ll be coming back frequently!
