I have been a customer for many years and have eaten here dozens of times. The food quality last night was the poorest I have see and our server was never to be found. I did not receive my coleslaw with my ribs and didn’t get them until the end of the meal when the server asked if we were ready for dessert when we were still eating. May have to find a new place.

Food took forever to get, and was cold when we received it. Server apologized for delay stated it was due to a 30 top table clogging the kitchen. My salad was missing the tomato’s and cheese. Husbands steak medallions had no flavor. Service was good, food was not.

Our booth provided a quiet spot for a meeting. Our food was fine, but not terribly exciting. I wish there were a few more salads available. It’s a solid restaurant, however, and I’ll be back.

Food was decent. Service was so-so. When you have guests, they come before the game that’s on tv. Being that we were from our of town, we had expectations of quality service.

They give us a very good table with the reservation even when the restaurants is super busy. We have a 3 months old with us and the table we got is perfect

This restaurant really knocked it out of the park. Great food, friendly service, and a ton of beers on tap. The wedge salads were fresh and large although the dressing was slightly too watery. The king salmon dishes were superb. Especially the miso bowl with sticky rice and glazed carrots. It was really a work of art. We will be back, especially since they have a gluten free menu.

Delicious food, but noisy at lunch time. I wish they offered espresso drinks; the server said they do but they aren't good as their machine often burns the coffee. I appreciated the tip. I personally don't like dining in a place with TVs playing in the background so downgraded for that. I made reservations noting it was a birthday for my 93-year-old mother, yet no table was reserved with good access for their elderly (had to step up into a booth or sit next to a very large party).

We were seated immediately, our waitress appeared promptly, and our food was delicious! My daughter had the stuffed salmon and thought it was delicious. Ample serving sizes. A very enjoyable dinner!

The food was excellent. Highly recommend Copper River Restaurant. The Brussel sprouts that came with my steak salad were the best I’ve ever had.

We’ve been twice, already a positive indicator. I never really thought about this, while evaluating a restaurant, but both times we’ve been to Copper River, everyone just seems to be having a great time. Even outside the bar, LOL. The wait staff are both professional, and casual, a tough combo to pull off. It seems to me that we get an extra 15-30 seconds of attention as they come by to check on us...at some places, it’s more like 2 seconds (which may have to do with staffing). Anyway, we’ve had two good experiences now. We now think about Copper River not just as a place to get good food, but a place that’s kust plain fun to go! Good job to Mgt and Staff. Thanks.

Always noisy and sometimes hard to carry on conversations. Frequently there are large groups. Food is good but descriptions don’t always match food (example shrimp ceviche special is more of a cocktail- is dry, no lime, not spicy, contains a few shrimp but is mostly fake krab). Some foods are very spicy with no reason. This place is sister to Oswego Grill, wish the food were the same.

Love all the delicious choices offered at Copper River! You can't go wrong with any food selection you make. The food is amazing and 5-stars in my book.
Only thing I would fault the restaurant on is the seating is too close and thus too noisy. No real quiet spots in the restaurant for a quiet meal with a friend or loved one.

My husband had the chicken marsala and he said it's good but he had better. As for myself I had the king salmon and it was good but Ive had better. We tried fried Brussels sprouts and it's was okay. It's was a lol expensive just to be okay.

I just have a question for u. When u make on your reservations that it’s for a birthday does the restaurant see this? We went for a birthday and we marked it on the reservation but nothing was down at the restaurant. So do I need to tell the hostess we r celebrating a birthday?

Solid food but the service was very slow and we were one of only a handful of diners. Many tables hadn’t been bussed and it was unappetizing eating surrounded by dirty dishes.

Got there when it opened as we had a planed even after, server was awesome! Never had to ask for a drink refill. We had the Brussel sprout app, Wife had a salmon salad, I had a bison burger just like my son but protein style(lettuce wrapped with a salad), and my daughter had a cheese burger with the gluten free bun. All the said food was excellent, and anyone that’s gluten free knows how difficult it is for them to find a decent bun that’s gluten free. Me and my wife are keto, the French fries were so good she broke and ate some. I don’t recall the server’s name but she was fantastic. Price doesn’t matter when the kids actually eat all their food. Highly recommended!!!! Burgers were about $15 with a side, not bad. Very similar to a Outback Steakhouse or other pub style restaurants.
