Great atmosphere, great service, and very well spaced out. We chose to dine indoors due to they not having any heaters outside and it was a cold night. We didn't eat, drinks only.

Classic southern fare with a slight twist in a cozy environment. Everyone will find something that they will enjoy on this menu. Food and drinks are a bit pricey but they taste good and are enjoyable. Slower paced to take your time to enjoy your food and company.

Excellent service, great food and very safe environment. We had oysters, both raw and grilled and truffle macaroni and cheese, Brie with apples, etc and some really good beers and mixed drinks. Great overall experience!

Def disappointed after reading the stellar reviews. The Roasted Chicken was awful. The mussels were very good and the lobster mac and cheese left much to be desired.

Some of the best service I've had in the area! Top tier. A friend and I sat near the back of the restaurant inside next to the bar and popcorn machine and had the best waitress (forgot her name). The lobster mac was divine. So was the five-cheese truffled mac and short ribs. Highly recommend! Great ambiance - especially in the evening.

As usual, nothing to complain about with this restaurant. The food is tasty and fresh, and the service is friendly, quick, and very accommodating. One of my friends has some serious dietary restrictions, and needed something grilled plain. The waitress and the kitchen converted a fried chicken meal into a grilled one, and were very nice about it. Sometimes at some restaurants, you feel like a burden asking for certain things, but not here. Also, our waitress Octavia needs her own shout-out. I was meeting two friends there, who arrived 30+ minutes late, but Octavia was so sweet the entire time. AND PATIENT! She checked on me throughout, and when they finally arrived, her patience, friendly, and very sweet demeanor remained in place the entire time. My friends felt so bad, and thought for sure any wait staff would be so annoyed with them, but she was awesome! As if we didn't like Copperwood Tavern enough, I have to say, every time I eat there, I am continually impressed with their staff--from the hosts, to the servers, to the kitchen staff--all just friendly and nice people!

The food was fantastic. The waiter was extremely slow for the entire meal. Forgetting things, not bringing our check, not even looking our way sometimes. Dropping our check and running off, rude.

Copperwood has done an excellent job in light of the limitations presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite masks, all staff are friendly, smiling, attentive and understanding. We eat at Copperwood with our toddler often and have never had anything but a great experience. Thanks for being there for us during this uncertain time!

After the initial disappointment hearing that what we intended to order (32 oz. Tomahawk Steak to share) was not available we had a great meal. That dish was listed on their current menu on line. They need to add "when available". We shared several starters: their unlimited BBQ dusted popcorn, lobster lettuce wraps, mussels, truffled mac & cheese, house-made potato chips. Then I had another starter as my entrée (tender, scrumptious short ribs w/ crispy onions) while Barry ate a ribeye steak. I also had glasses of Copperwood cabernet sauvignon from Napa. We sat inside (only table 'til 3 more filled up when we were ready to leave). Good social distancing. The patio was bustling w/ families, dogs, et.al. but looked too crowded. We would like to return soon....if they have the Tomahawk for 2!

I had a good dinner today; however I was not a fan of the Brussels sprouts; tough and no seasoning. The short ribs did not disappoint, they were great.

I went to Copperwood Tavern for Labor Day brunch with my brother and roommate. They made us feel very safe and well attended to. The Ryes and Shine was delicious and everyone very much enjoyed their food. The outdoor seating was very comfortable with plenty of options for both shade and sunlight. We will definitely visit again.

The salad and sides were good but the mains were nothing to get excited about. A fatty under cooked ribeye and small rockfish (if it really was rockfish) portion left a lot to be desired. Trying to give everyone the benefit of doubt during COVID, but we will not be returning here.

Some of the best service in this COVID-dining world. The food and drinks were both quick and delicious, while waters, etc were refilled once out. We saw outside, felt very comfortable with a shaded table on a hot day. Will definitely be back again soon!

The food was really good, I had the salmon with Gouda mashed potatoes and my friend had the short ribs and Gouda mashed potatoes but the service was not that good, our waiter barely checked on us and when we were ready to go we had to wait for the waiter to come and bring us our check.

Food tasted like it had come from the farm directly to the table. Portions were very good and our waitress was superb! This just might be my regular Sunday brunch location.
