I have been here a few times -- I don't find the menu particularly interested and my food has been served cold at least twice. I only go if I can't get in somewhere else.

Having an early dinner, we opted for something light and ordered farm fresh salads with grilled shrimp. Everyone enjoyed the generous beautifully presented salads - since it was St.. Patricks weekend, my husband had the Irish stew special which was quite tasty down to the last droplet!

Great waiter who explained the history of the pub and the artifacts on the wall ---

Highly recommend. Wine pours generous. Free popcorn for table - set the right tone.....

This was my first time at Copperwood and I was pleasantly surprised. Food was awesome and I really loved the décor, especially all of the candid pet pics that line the hallway at the restrooms. I felt it was a little pricey, but not crazy and in the end, worth it. It was a great night out, and we'll definitely go back.

Our food was good but not great. The French Toast sticks (appetizer) were very oily but my omelet was perfect. The restaurant is very loud and the table are close together so you hear several conversations at once.

Copperwood Tavern is my go to restaurant when entertaining out of town guests. The food is on point as are the cocktails. We had side of the truffle Mac n cheese and Brussel sprouts to share. Great quality rib eye cooked perfect and to top it off cheese cake for dessert!

While my porkchop tasted fine (not great, not good - fine), I'm still stumped as to why Copperwood, alone among restaurants as near as I can determine, doesn't serve a side or two with a $26 entree. That needs to change. Drinks were ok. Service good. Really loud inside the restaurant - difficult to hold a conversation. I just think I can get far better value for my money at one of four or five other much better restaurants a stone's throw away in Shirlington.

Recently moved to Shirlington from Clarendon and went here after dropping off the Uhaul for brunch. What a difference compared the rowdy drunk crowds in Clarendon. Noise volume was really really good for a brunch crowd and seemed a lot more family friendly than I’m used to which is a welcome change. Loved that they had a glass of brut on the brunch menu beyond the typical bloodies and mimosas. My food was fine, but my partners food was FIRE.

I wish that I had got the short rib grilled cheese like he did- next time!

Copperwood is good. It’s a bit on the pricier side but it has a nice ambiance. Our server was good but could have been more friendly. Not sure how I feel about the setup of their meals. I enjoy my food with a side but you have to order the side extra. Overall, I’ll go back, but not my first choice in dining!

We enjoyed the brunch very much. I had the biscuits and gravy, which were really good. The gravy was very creamy. My girlfriend had the pulled pork sandwich and she enjoyed it. The avocado toast appetizer was awesome too. This place is pretty packed on the weekends and it was loud enough that we had trouble hearing the waitress. But it was a good time and we will be back.

My wife and I had brunch with reservations as soon as they opened. The hostess was ready to go an opened the door to the restaurant for us as soon as we arrive (we were a bit early). We sat, were waited on almost immediately, and proceeded to share a couple appetizers (scotch egg and avocado toast) and an entree (chicken and waffles). Both of the apps were good, but nothing that would make me come back and the chicken and waffles was decent... a bit on the dry side. Our drinks were delicious (mimosa and bellini). Wait staff was pleasant and present. Overall, a good experience, and we do recommend.
