Best hamburgers in town! Wife always get the Ahi Tuna stack as a meal. We have had several meals here, bacon cheeseburger and a blue moon is very hard to beat.

Although I overly emphasized I wanted my burger juicy (greasy even) and cooked medium rare, it came out medium-well. The spider on flies were a bit much. The choc fudge desert & artichoke dip appetizer were amazing and so was the service from Michael. Since I've been to Copper River several times before, I'll consider this an outlier.

Great food and good service. The back room was a little noisy, but the adjacent table left part way through and it quieted down.

We made reservations and our table was given to someone else. We had to backtrack through the restaurant and then got scolded by a different hostess for standing in the wrong place. She spoke to us like we were in kindergarten. Our waiter was GREAT! He made the entire evening worthwhile. My husband got the filet mignon and took two bites and was not impressed whatsoever. It came with very dry mashed potatoes. I ordered the stuffed salmon and it was very good. My daughter and daughter-in-law got the spicy mac and cheese, and French dip and they were both pleased. My son got the orange chicken, which he enjoyed but the serving size was shockingly small. Overall, 4 out of 5 meals were good. The serving sizes have gotten significantly smaller than they used to be, and it seems the prices went up as well. Since everything is due to Covid, we will wait to return until the pandemic has long passed. It's disappointing because we have been here so many times, and this is our first visit since Covid hit. We had been missing the food and couldn't wait to go back.

Very disappointed in the ribeye that we ordered. I could’ve ordered the same thing for a lot less given the quality of the meat they chose to serve I don’t think we will be eating steak there again

Great food. Great atmosphere to hang with friends and family for a drink or appetizers during happy hour. service is usually on point. We go often. one of our favorite restaurants, but service was slow this time. maybe wait staff was short on people, it really doesnt matter because customer service is always excellent. try the creme brûlée or doughnuts! a must.

My favorite place for lunch. I took two friends who, due to pandemic haven't been able to eat out (who has?) It was their birthday week and they were impressed. They are already asking when we can go back.
Thank you.

We have visited Copper River a number of times, this particular visit we were seated in the back by the door that exits to the outdoor dining, normally this may not have bothered us however it was 45 degrees and people were coming and going and we froze.

Also, service to our table seemed to be lacking as it took a longer than normal amount of time to get a second drink and even our check.

I asked for warm water and the waiter confirmed "warm?" "Yes, please" I replied.
He brought me ice cold water with ice cubes.

I ordered the grilled salmon.
They were all out of salmon, and offered me a menu to find something else.

They must have had a different type of salmon for my friend's salmon fish tacos. Might have been nice to have been offered that salmon for a discounted price.

Oh well. I didn't complain and I didn't question. But since this prompt came in my email inbox, I'm responding. I'm sure it's a nice restaurant. I just don't feel like returning at this point.
