Overheard the bartender indicate to another patron that there is a new executive chef. Boy was that the truth. As someone that frequents this establishment my friends and I were all sadly disappointed with our food. Honestly, it wasn’t good. However, their redeeming quality is their service. The hospitality is top-notch. Wait staff is kind, patient and funny! It’ll be hard to come back because the food was so lackluster.

All our dishes were fabulous - trout with pecans, rabbit ragu and steak salad. We also loved our waiter

The food was okay and the service was average. We asked for certain breakfast items and 5 mins later the servicer came back to tell they ran out of that food item and that was done to us 3 times.

Food was prepared as ordered and served promptly. Kitchen on it's own initiative sent the waiter over to the table with another steak, because someone in the prep or service chain thought that it was delivered to me overcooked..it was not, so I declined.
Was not happy with the bland cheesecake. That charge was immediately removed from the bill.

Great brunch, but the host was doing double duty since one of the wait staff didn’t show up. He had a great attitude and worked hard, but the service was a little slow because of this. This won’t keep us from coming back... we love this restaurant!

We came during happy hour and sat outside and it was lovely. We ordered 12 grilled oysters, lobster mac, steak tartare, salmon salad, and steak salad, and all of them were great. I had two commonwealth mules to drink, and they were also wonderful. We will definitely be back!

Sat outside for brunch on Easter Sunday, which was glorious. We started with the fried green tomatoes. I'd recommend taking these off the menu -- they were bland and tasteless; even the pimento cheese had only a very mild flavor.
In general, the starter menu needs a make-over -- there is just nothing exciting on it.
The short rib benedict was delicious and came with a generous and perfectly dressed side salad. My companion had the burger, which she said was delicious; although the fries were a bit limp.
We go to Copperwood often; LOVE the oysters and several other items on the menu; but the menu could use a little jazzing up.

I’ve always loved Copperwood and their amazing menu. I appreciate how items change with the seasons and how they utilize local food and beverage products. During this visit we were seated on their outdoor patio as we had two small dogs with us. It was a great vibe all around and we look forward to coming back again very soon.

After waiting 10 minutes without staff greeting us we had to ask for our waiter/waitress. Then for our meal they forgot to put in one of our orders and when they hurriedly made it the steak that was supposed to be medium was rare. By time they made another the rest of us had finished eating our whole meal and just had to box the item. Very displeased.

The quality of food has gone down SIGNIFICANTLY since you first opened. Our fried green tomatoes were rock hard and the fried goat cheese was cold inside. These looked like pre-made from frozen apps. Our salmon salads were all spinach - no arugula as the menu states. The food was average - not special. I felt like I was at a mediocre chain restaurant. And we specifically selected copper wood over other places and came all the way from Leesburg to meet friends. This was my second sub-par experience at Copperwood in the last six months. I let the first one pass, but it clearly is the new normal. So sad.

We ordered the Venison and Ribeye, both prepared medium rare. Both cuts of meat were very chewy. I couldn't even digest the Venison. I chewed the Venison so much I had to take it out my mouth. My friend steak although looked perfect in appearance (medium rare), the steak was very tough and chewy. The restaurant Manager did replace our meals. So that was nice. The baked Brie was amazingly delish!
