Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it had no ill effects on the fox.
That’s because the fox has a more tasteful form of curiosity- one that is smart and selective. It is a sentiment that inspired everything on our menu, from our craveable food to our signature copper-mug cocktails.
So, go ahead. Be curious. Try something new. There’s a bit of refined curiosity
in everything we serve; a pinch in every dish, a dash in every drink, from creative dishes to crafted cocktails.
That’s the curious formula for a unique gastropub experience.

This is my first visit to the hidden in plain view location. It was 130 so after the lunch rush and quiet. We had a comfy booth with little pillows. The service was attentive and quick. The crab hush puppies were right out of the oil hot and delirious. Tasty with or without the doing dipping sauce. The 7 layer sale looked great in a jar and formed a generous serving. I was not a fan of the spicy ranch dressing and the spicy chicken breast but I know a few people would enjoy the flavor. It was a comfortable and pleasant lunch.

Nice place for a quiet meal and good conversation. Brussels sprouts were a revelation, best I've ever had by far. Rigatoni was pretty good, and satisfying, creamy etc. But in 5 years I might have forgotten about it. The sprouts, I won't have. Very attentive waitstaff, good recommendations. Would definitely go again.

It was easy to get a table on Saturday morning for brunch. The menu offers a decent amount of options. The food was mostly good. The famous biscuits were delicious as were the breakfast burrito and the egg white frittata. We weren't so impressed with the toast or hashbrowns but those are really secondary anyway. The star of the experience was our server, Juan. He has been working here for almost 11 years and on this block for over 20 years. Talk about a professional!! It just doesn't get any better!

The happy hour menu was good - prices were good, but small quantity. Drinks offered for happy hour were specialty 'mules'. I did not particularly like them; however, I was glad to try them at the special 'happy hour' price.

This was my first visit to Copper Fox Gastropub. I had both heard and read positive attributes to the restaurant. While it was St. Patrick’s Day, the venue was initially busy but tapered not long after my party of three was seated. Our order was fairly simply dish-wise. Largely things were positive on the experience. However, our food took an overly abundant time to be delivered. We engaged three servers relative to the status of our food order. Over forty-five minutes after placing our food order, we finally were served food. I will say another server noticed us looking for our server and became an advocate for us (for as much as she could). Likely without her intervention, we would have waited longer. Our foot order was accurate but just warm. Having said that, the second server helped push a partial comp of our bill for which we appreciated. Overall though, I cannot say my experience will bring me back any time soon.

Came here with a friend and sat at a table for 2 next to a chained aluminum curtain. The place was quiet and I got the sense that they haven't been open for very long. Our server was pretty enthusiastic about the menu. We shared a bottle of a nice red (The Prisoner) that my friend was familiar with. We shared the brussel sprouts, after the waiter was really selling it, and I ordered the fish tacos. My friend got the burger with a side of fried avocado salad. For desert we shared the chocolate mousse cake. Everything tasted great and the waiter made us feel extra special by giving us Copper Fox keychains. I would come back.

I was overall disappointment in our experience. I found this restaurant so I felt a bit responsible that everyone in our group like it. They had a decent dish but I ordered the fried avocado salad based on the reviews and it was not very good at all. It was overdressed, so sweet and a bizarre combination of ingredients. Hot picked jalapeños, sweet picked beets and tomatoes with sweet dressing. The fried avocados were bland although fried nicely. I ordered a hand crafted cocktail, the “smell the roses” and again it was super sweet and most of the drink was this giant lavender ice ball. The waitress told us the dessert was enough for 4 of us to share but it was tiny. Good thing I ate appetizers before I got to the restaurant because it was kind of a disappointment. The staff was kind but food was really the downfall.

I was looking for brunch downtown for a sizeable group of 10. They sat us in an open, private dining room. It was still morning so the restaurant was not too busy yet. The decor seems upscale but the vibe I would say is more casual. They graciously accommodated the 2 kids in the group and the servers were very attentive. Overall the restaurant is a good value as the food was better than expected for the price. A day earlier we ate breakfast at a really crappy diner nearby and basically paid the same price. So again, really good value for brunch downtown.

Evening started out good with attentive server but they got “hit” early on during our dinner and then we were forgotten. However the food was good, adequate portions and tasty. The manager did excellent with service recovery which makes me want to go back and give them another chance.

In town on vacation with my husband and six year old. We had dinner at 5.30 and requested a booth which we received. Our son was super thirsty and told the hostess and we had a drink about 1 minute later - big win! They brought out some free fruit for him and brought his entree asap which is what we asked. The whole time our sever was highly attentive and very helpful.

We had the free biscuits (from yelp coupon check in) which were a little too dry for me. Also had the pork belly app (yum!) followed up with a seven layer salad (huge) and flat iron steak (delightful). I sipped several “one flew south” drinks which were a cherry delight. My husband had the pecan old fashioned which he really enjoyed. In all, a great dining experience close to the Mile and they were on it serving our son which is highly appreciated as parents. When restaurants do that, parents can actually enjoy their meal.

In town for convention and was trying to find a place within an easy walk from our hotel. Our server, Lindsay, was great at explaining what was in the menu, steering us towards popular items and giving her own favorites. We both had the crispy chicken sandwich, shared a starter of the bisquits (free by checking in on Yelp) and had a local brew. We were there before 6:30 on a Wednesday, so we actually got our entree, beer and a bartender’s choice shot as a combined deal on the happy hour menu for just $18. Probably the best chicken sandwich I have had that I can recall. The “twist” they put on the recipes as a “gastropub” definitely added some flavors that set the items apart. Would definitely go back.

Nice spot for a nice lunch. Reasonable prices. Modern look, not really a "cozy romantic" feel but OK. Mac and Cheese ok but maybe a little bland. Brussel Sprouts were awesome. House Mule with tequila was very good. Great waitress.

Food was overcooked and underseasoned today. The waiter was great and accomdating, but for 3 out of the 4 dishes to come out badly was disappointing. The calamari fries were good as usual. The biscuits were dense and almost hard bc they were so overcooked. The crispy chicken sandwich did have any seasoning in the breading and all of the condiments were concentrated in the middle. The steak sandwich was dry - the steak was well done and there wasn't any sauce so biting into it was really dry - disappointing for $17. And the fries seemed like the frozen kind. Been here a few times and never left as disappointed as today..

I can only speak for Thanksgiving day but the food was awesome and the service was fantastic.

The turkey was some of the best I've ever had as was all of the sides except perhaps the green beans (ordinary). One of the most exceptional experiences was the #16 biscuits. They are sooo good.
