Wonderful dinner with friends. Service was awesome and the food was outstanding. If the Brussels spouts are on the menu, you must order. We all agreed they were the best we’ve ever had. Fabulous wines and cocktails. Stayed at the Inn at Manchester so we actually walked while it was snowing.

The food was excellent. The only reason why I didn't give it five stars all around was a strange interaction with host, and my partner's omlet came out wrong. However, brunch was terrific even with all that being said.

Honestly my wife and I enjoyed everything that was brought to the table aside from the Table Bread option. 2 pieces of bread cut in half for 6 dollars is a little much. Will return again for the brussel sprouts alone!

Thank you, everybody.

Was really looking forward to Thanksgiving at the Copper Grouse. We arrived on time, actually a few minutes early, and were escorted to a lovely seat by a door/window. As soon as I sat down I felt a cold breeze surrounding me. I mentioned to the server how cold I was and she completely ignored/dismissed my comments. Now mind you there were plenty of empty tables in the restaurant, which primarily remained empty our entire meal. The soup and kale salad were excellent. My turkey entree was plentiful but unfortunately served luke warm which quickly became cold due to the cold air by our table. I spoke with the manager who apologized but really didn’t do anything either. I’m sorry to say I would not eat here again.

Good Evening, we'd like apologize for the AC disrupting your dining experience. Our server informed us of the issue, and we adjusted the temperatures immediately. However, as we are currently waiting for parts to fix the mechanism we are frustratingly experiencing temperature fluctuations in our restaurant. We are deeply sorry that this effected your dining experience, as we will implement better communication with our team to avoid experiences such as yours.

Our experience at the Copper Grouse was sublime. The food was outstanding, all fresh with wonderful flavor. We started with the cauliflower and the beet and pears and they could not have been better. Our main course was strip steak and sea scallops. The steak was seared to perfection and just melted in your mouth and the scallops were equally spectacular. I am not sure which was better the food or the service. Molly was simply incredible, there when we needed her, excellent suggestions and very helpful and knowledgeable. Just a wonderful experience all around

Drinks were expensive $12-15 range, asked for a pumpkin martini and bartender said he could make one but then sent waitress over to ask if I just want pumpkin vodka or mix with something and if something what? Think he needed to go back to bartending school. Went in November and it was very cold in dining room. Felt like air conditioning was blowing on us. We got the wagyu burger and fries for $32. We asked for it medium but it was red and bloody inside. Most expensive burger but nothing about it was worth $32.

Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your dining experience with us. Our pricing is competitive with our market, and we apologize regarding your cocktail. Our server inquired to the specifics of your drink request as it is something we do not make typically, as well as many of the ingredients we do not carry. This is common practice for our steps of service, our servers generally ask follow up questions if we have an unique request. Please reach out with the phone number provided.

The only thing I didn’t like was my cocktail, but I think it was because I tried something new. The service was great and the servers were friendly and the waygu burger was amazing!

The food is generally prepared well but portions are modest and quality has been inconsistent, especially at lunch. The lunch menu is significantly limited with a small range of dishes. Service was not attentive. Long wait to check in at the door to the restaurant, even with only one party ahead of mine. The host was missing in action for 15 minutes and seemed to be working double duty cleaning tables. Lots of open tables but limited reservation slots due to limited staff. The only major draw is the beautiful outdoor patio and view.

It took 20 minutes for the waitress to acknowledge us. I had to ask for water 3 times. I was about to get up and get it myself. It was a long wait for everything. Waitress kept disappearing. My husband ordered another cocktail. Waitress said, “I’ll put it right in”. Again we waited and I just asked for our check as soon as I seen her (of course she didn’t have his cocktail) 10-15 minutes later. His cocktail wasn’t even on the check. She never put it in. The food was amazing. Next time we will sit inside. Maybe the service will be better.

Overdone and understaffed. Unfortunately the kitchen was unable to deliver on the promising and creative menu. Extremely over-salted dinner. Inedible entree, and many tables were complaining. Maybe just a bad night. Overcooked and stale breakfast plates, thought. Excellent clam chowder. Decent French toast. Proceed w caution.

At 7 pm , all daily specials were sold out. The famous chicken entree had so much salt on it, we had to send back. Terrible. The maple carrots were ok. The steak was cooked well. The cocktails were adequate but nothing special for $15 each. Service was poor. Never checked on how our meal was etc which made the whole experience not good. Do not reccomend. Skip and go to Barrows restaurant in Dorsett for much better food
