Loved the atmosphere, but both my husband and I agreed our split chicken breast had no flavor. We didn’t think it was a good piece of chicken either. Maybe try something else on the menu.

We were very upset to find that the "special" which was a grass fed steak, was more than DOUBLE the price of the regular "substantial" or main course items on the menu. We are not people who are typically concerned with price when we dine out, but we were shocked when the bill came with $64 steaks our children ordered. Moreover, there are a total of four scallops on the Pan Seared Scallop dish, and the pours on the glasses of wine were small. The food was well prepared and the service was good, but the place was noisy (it's a bar) and we will not be returning.

Seriously overpriced! 14 for a mixed drink that looked like it came in a shot glass. I couldn't bring myself to pay 42 for a steak in what they tout as a "swanky tavern" so we settled on 19 hamburgers. Now mind you they were very good but seriously overpriced. The music is too loud and it seems like they cater to out of state skiers who are used to paying exhorbanent amounts for "swanky tavern" fare. I wouldn't go back

We visited the Copper Grouse on a Friday night at the end of the holiday week in late February. As we entered through the hotel reception we noticed children running everywhere and in the restaurant there were initially a large number of children eating, which made the restaurant quite noisy initially.

Food very good, with 3 sharing plates enough for a main meal for two people. Drinks good but expensive.

Sadly our waitress was very busy because of the number of people in the restaurant and therefore service was slow with a drink and food item being forgotten ( this was discounted from the bill).

Would visit again but not on a weekend.

We had a great experience! The food was outstanding and I was so pleased to have my gluten free needs met when ordering the special of the evening. The warm gluten free rolls were an added treat. Each meal was cooked to perfection and the portions were more than filling. Tom was attentive as our server checking back often but was not intrusive. He took care in explaining options and answering our questions. This was our first visit but we will be back when we are in town next time

Warm, inviting ambience, spot-on service (thank you, Janet!), and fan-friggin-tastic food made for a wonderful night out. From drinks through dessert (and every step in between—try the steak!), this was an experience to remember. Thank you!

We tried to walk in over the Presidents’ Day vacation but had no luck. We did get a Rez for our last night. Our waitress was just lovely and attentive even though it was a busy night. The food was really delicious. We enjoyed both our salads and our main courses. My daughter got the mussels and I had the burger with truffle fries. We were too stuffed for dessert but I would go again and know that I need a reservation.

We have been coming to this restaurant for years and this time the food was disappointing, the salad was not fresh, the fries were soggy and overly salty and the wait for each item to come out was much longer than expected.

Everything was very nice, except that we were freezing!!! The air conditioning was blowing right on us and it was about 28 degrees outside. We complained and was told it was just the “air circulating” and that the air conditioning wasn’t on. Whatever the case, we ate with our jackets on!!!

Overall, we really enjoyed our dinner at Copper Grouse. The food and ambiance are top notch. The service, however, was quite poor. While our waitress was super nice, it was a scattered experience from the moment we sat down. It took a while for someone to come to our table, our drinks took a while, a salad order was never placed, meals came and we couldn’t get a drink to accompany it... nonetheless, we laughed it off and enjoyed a fun Friday night.

Overall, my wife and I enjoyed our experience. We had a reservation, and were seated as soon as we arrived. We were happy to have a small table in the corner, away from the noisy bar (choose a "regular table" instead of "high top" to increase the chances of this). There were many kids present, as we had an early reservation (it was that or an 8:45 p.m. one). Many of the kids continually wandered to their parents' table and out somewhere and then back. The server was nice. The appetizer options were fairly limited. A couple next to us seemed to have ordered a salmon entree to share as an appetizer. We had the Spiced Popcorn. It was fairly basic but only $5 and tasty. My wife really enjoyed her salmon. I really enjoyed my strip steak, although it seemed pricey ($52) compared to the other menu options (e.g. $32 for a flat iron steak and $29 for salmon). I chose their normal fries as my side, and thought they were excellent. The wine we had was good, if a little expensive (most glasses were $12-$16). If my wife and I were to eat there again, we would choose a later reservation to avoid the noisier families with kids. If you are staying in the hotel, it is obviously very convenient.

Four of us on an annual ski trip diner here as we have for the last few years. Food and ambiance both really good. The server could have been a bit more interested and a little less informal. Just a little more training and she would have been excellent.

Love this place. My second time going. Only thing I would suggest is take it easy on the salt & the wine list this time around wasn’t as good. Last time is was fantastic but didn’t really favor any of the whites I tried.

Still looking forward to going back the next time in Manchester!
