Cooperage Inn Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Never having been there before, I was pleasantly surprised. The decor is welcoming, the service top notch, and the food was delicious. My friend and I had the pan seared cod and as much as I like it, and have it often, I have to say that that cod was the best I have ever had. It was cooked to perfection. After we finished our meal we did not get the impression that we needed to "move on" so that the table could be occupied again. All in all it was a very enjoyable experience.
This was my fourth visit to this establishment. The food is homey overall with some variations to keep things interesting. The prix fixe lunch is a good value with almost no upcharge (just one or two exceptions).
I started with the eggplant fries, sticks of eggplant nicely breaded and seasoned, and deep fried. They were addictive. They were served with a fresh tomato sauce for dipping. My friend ordered the soup of the day, a shrimp gumbo; she was very disappointed. It was watery and not very flavorful. The shrimp were minuscule. The first bread basket brought to the table held two stale rolls. We were hungry, so we asked for a refill when they were gone. This time, the bread basket held four rolls and were fresh. It's a small point, but restaurants should pride themselves on serving the best of everything, always.
I ordered the classic chicken pot pie, a generous dish chock full of chicken pieces, a few veggies, and topped with a delicious crust. My friend ordered the roast salmon, also a very generous dish, and she was not disappointed. We both went home with leftovers. Coffee and dessert are included in the prix fixe offering. I opted for the apple bread pudding, as comforting as it sounds. It was delicious, the well-spiced apples tender, and the bread had turned into a fabulous, custardy base. My friend ordered the coconut cream pie, a wedge that would have been enough for two. It, too, was delicious.
Service was professional but not once did the waitress ask how our meals were. It's a small quibble but it is indicative of a certain lack of interest for feedback to the kitchen.
I went to the Cooperage Inn with about 24 other ladies...the entire staff was efficient, friendly, very accommodating. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was cozy and very decorative. A very pleasant experience was had by all. Would definitely recommend this place for a great place to dine.
Beautifully decorated venue. we went on ladies "Wednesday" night and they had a price fix meal for $22. found it strange that all you received was an appetizer and entree. if you wanted a dessert it was $3-$5 extra. I ordered the fried calamari on salad for entree. calamari was delicious, the salad, which i didn't touch at restaurant and was wrapped - had to be tossed before i arrived home for it smelled awful in car. friend received a raw pork chop after she was told that their pork chops are cooked to perfection when she inquired when ordering - she had to send back and was munching on my calamari waiting on its return (Hey what are friends for). A manager , i believe that's who he was, kept hovering around our table at the end of the night.............got the impression that they were trying to close.
My party of 6 was happy we had gotten together for dinner. Food was, for the most part delicious. not sure if i would return.
Went for birthday celebration; had reservation for 7 people but table wasn’t ready. Hostess was unfriendly and went back to dining room to request table for 7 set up. The whole point of making a reservation is to have those details prearranged. Once seated the experience was fine; waitress very nice and accommodating, food good for prix fix, and ambiance lovely.
The Cooperage Inn is a true gem! I have been going there for many years, always a pleasure. Not only for dinner with friends, celebrations are handled perfectly. I have celebrated many birthdays there with large groups. The staff from the moment you walk in the door to leaving is on top of their game. The wait and bus staff are always a pleasure.
We really liked this place. We've drove past many times driving out on the North Fork but never stopped in. That will happen no more! We has 2 excellently prepared meals today for lunch, the Salmon & the Flat Iron steak. Both had excellent eye appeal and tasted great. The waiter and staff were all very cordial. The interior was well appointed. Prices were reasonable especially the Prix Fixe lunches, wines were also priced well (l recommend the Wolffer Cab Franc). The restaurant inside and out was nicely decorated for Fall. Well done!
We have been here 2 other times for dinner/lunch. We arrived early on Saturday night and gave our name as we had a 7:15 reservation. We went to the bar which we had fun; the bartender was great. 7:30 came and went at 7:45 she came to sit us at a table that was empty by the bar for the past hour. I was very upset. If you were going to give us this lousy table, why didn't you give it to us when we arrived. Will not be coming back.
Met a few friends there for a dinner get together. Food was good and so were the appetizers. The bar can get a bit noisy and crowded but that's the type of atmosphere I is. Sit further back into the dining area to be away from bar crowd. Pretzels are awesome and salads are delicious if you're watching your diet. Great get together with friends. Service was a little slow with asking if we needed another refill on drinks but we weren't in a rush and we didn't feel rushed so that was fine.
