About Copper Fox Gastropub

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.

 (Grand Rapids)·Dined 2 days ago

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.

 (Indiana)·Dined on December 29, 2017

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.

My mother was in town for a business trip and we chose this location due to walking distance of her hotel. I'm glad we did. We found a great hidden gem for breakfast/brunch. The pricing was very reasonable, and the food was excellent.

I'd highly recommend this to anyone. The staff were incredibly friendly as well.

We have dined at the Gastropub several times when staying at the attached Courtyard hotel because of the convenience for my handicapped wife. The food is above average. The service is good. The calamari fries were good, but lacked the flavor and tenderness of calamari rings. The fish tacos were delicious, but contained only tiny pieces of fish. The shrimp and crab roll with rosemary potato chips was also delicious and of ample size for my wife. The wine list has good selections, but be prepared to pay 4-5 times the retail store price for a bottle. The strawberry shortcake disappointed because the biscuits (a stated house specialty) were apparently left over and very dry and tough. The restaurant was quite noisy due to a very active happy hour in the adjoining bar. Will we return? Yes, with a choice of other menu items. Breakfast at this restaurant is always enjoyable.

You can’t go wrong here, but we really enjoyed the Herb Roasted Chicken! Will be back again!

Gave Cooper Fox Gastropub a try based upon Yelp reviews...and it did not disappoint! Of course we had the biscuits (Free w Yelp check-in) and they were fluffy, flakey and tasty, but we also opted for the lump crab hush puppies w jalapeño, scallion, citrus aioli. Wonderful! In truth, it was too much appetizer to be able to finish our entrées. We selected the gulf shrimp and lump crab roll and the herb roasted chicken. Both dishes were very good. Special thanks to staff members Kerry and Lindsey who were so attentive to our needs. The warmth of reception and quality of foods made for the kind of evening that one could simply sit back, relax, and ENJOY.
