Unfortunately I had to return my order because my fish was undercooked but they quick corrected it and brought something else. The manager spoke with me directly and also received a complimentary dessert for our anniversary

I wanted to love this place and was so excited to find something different for our date night. My caesar salad was like a bag salad at Kroger, didn't finish it. My entree was quite good, grilled chicken and yams. My husband batted 0. Got a bowl of crab bisque, it looked like it was poured from a can and literally jiggled, like jello. He ate what he could to not completely waste the money spent. Then his entree, terrible disappointment. He order the veal pasta dish (name I don't recall), but he was excited because it showed as a classic favorite. He literally could only eat 1/3 of the meat. Grissly, overcooked and just didn't taste right. His pasta and sauce was ok, so he was able to eat some of the dish. And paper straws, yuck! Give guests the option, they get soggy and are horrible when your lips touch them. Oh, and the napkins smelled weird...yes, read that right. Not sure if it was the batch of laundry, or just me being hypersensitive to scents, but weird smelling regardless.

Saving grace, prices weren't killer. 100% won't return, even if the chicken and yam dish was quite delish!!

All things considered ; my favorite restaurant in DFW. Just a good, non pretensions place to eat with good food and good atmosphere, all at a reasonable price.

We west for our anniversary, and had our teenage daughter and my MIL, who was visiting, along with us. It wasn't very crowded at the time, so we were able to get a spot with good lighting, which is helpful for my MIL. The music was a bit loud, which is a bit at odds with the furnishings. When you come in, it's subdued lighting, dark furniture, and just feels like it should have softer background music.
Food-we started with the hot crab claws app, which was great. Daughter had the steak small plate and loved it, which I told her she would, as I have had it before. Hubby had the stuffed catfish and really liked it. MIL had the salmon cobb salad. She liked it, but wished she had asked for the salmon to be cooked more done, instead of the usual medium. I had the pecan crusted ricochet catfish, which is always fantastic, although the corn fritters were a little spicy. The green beans were really good. All of us adults had to-go boxes.
Service was pretty good, except he spoke too fast for my MIL, and he would ask us how things were, etc, yet not really listen to the answer.
Before we went, I pulled up the menu for my MIL to go ahead and decide what she wanted, as she has a hard time reading small print menus. She was quite appreciative, and I was really glad that was an option.

We loved the crawfish bread. Service was pleasant but it took far too long to get drinks. Bread pudding was tasty but should have been warmer.

I can not recommend Copelands. I was visiting from out of town. I made a reservation which was confirmed by email. I arrived to a very busy and noisy restaurant to discover that "we don't take reservations on Friday and Saturday". When I told them that it had been confirmed by email, I received a shrug. I was seated 30 minutes later next to the bar. I had to shout to talk to the server who was very good and helpful. Food was ok - not great. Overall, the experience was disappointing.

It was a special birthday for my wife, and, having lived much of her life in Louisiana, Copeland's was her first choice. My first visit, and we were both pleased on all counts. Friendly, courteous, professional people, a very comfortable environment, a menu which was very pleasing, and the food was not only tasty and attractive, but nicely presented. Everything about our visit was first-rate, and we plan to return again son - and often! Highly recommended.

Our meals, service, and the atmosphere were all excellent. It was our Anniversary and we gave them a shot. Very glad we did. The only negative is parking. They are in the Hilton, which I wasn't aware of. Getting close parking to the restaurant was difficult.

We have been coming to Copeland's for July 3rd Stars and Stripes celebration for 10 years. We are never disappointed with the service, the beverages and the food quality. The prices are reasonable and we recommend this restaurant if you are in Southlake Town Square.

Food was mediocre and I would not call it cajun. Prices were high for the quality of food and the fish was "fishy". Music selection blasting in the restaurant was that of a middle school girl and very annoying during dinner.

Went here for Mother’s Day Brunch. I was a little underwhelmed due to the place being a bit unorganized and not prepared for the amount of customers on a special day. Additionally, the food was mediocre in selection, taste and quality.

I think they either didn't plan well enough for Mothers Day Brunch or our waitress was not very responsive. Seemed like we constantly had to flag her down and I'm not one to require much but having to wait to get drinks filled and plates hauled away shouldn't happen for $40 a person

I grew up in the New Orleans area where meals at Copeland's were a regular occurrence. Every few years I make the 45 minute drive to Southlake so that I can enjoy some of the classics. The Bayou Broccoli, Catfish Acadiana, and Red Hot Potatoes were all as delicious as I remembered. The hostess and server were extremely friendly and accommodating. I totally enjoyed the experience!

My wife’s birthday. Steaks tasted like they were frozen before cooked. Sides were cold. Very disappointed in overall food quality. Service was ok. Wife has a bell pepper allergy and server nor cook knew if bell pepper was in several of the dishes. We had a lot of other places to spend $120 at and regret going to Copeland’s.
