It was my 3rd time dining at Copperwood Tavern and this visit unlike the previous two was disappointing. It started with our overbearing waiter who wasn't a very good listener to the food not meeting my expectations.

Food was fantastic. Husband and I shared great lamb shank! Our friends had the spaghetti squash and chicken. Also great dessert - cobbler and smores! Excellent service and will definitely go back with my dog.

We were meeting for a girls brunch and this was just perfect. Loads of choices for people with different diet requests. The service was a real stand out. Attentive and helpful all the way through. This will be a new go-to for brunch.

We made a reservation weeks ago and were seated at the worst table in the place. Right by the door in the middle of the floor. It was so scrunched people kept bumping into us and our table. We asked to move and the staff was NOT happy to accommodate us, but they did. On the other hand, the food and drinks were delicious.

TIMING problems are the cause for the GOOD rating. Entrees came so fast on the heels of the appetizers that we felt rushed and had to box things up prematurely so the main dishies wouldn't get cold... RATS! Happy to return, though. First thyme for us, we liked the vibe & decor, and WooHOO! we scored a booth as requested. Server Inna provided vivacious and attentive service. Copperwood Old Fashioned cokctails had great flavour, but were skimpy for $15 and heavy on the sweet/herbal with no trace of the Rye Whiskey, gave only a minor-league Buzz. French Onion soup excellent. Venison Meaty-Balls and the Fried Green Tomatoes more disappointing. Entree Ribeye and Pork Chop pretty dang yummy, and cooked as ordered. Farmers and Tavern Salad portions were EXTRA generous, very fresh. Management comped us the Pecan Pie Cheesecake dessert after we commented that it was all sweet pecan with no cheesy ZING! We'll give 'em another few chances, though - We like the joint!

We were welcomed with our reservation & offered table or booth. Asparagus side was great appetizer. Shannon is terrific server - super helpful!! Love the Brussel Sprouts. Complimentary soup was delicious as was the French onion & fried green tomatoes. Lovely braised lamb shank. Always enjoy our dining here. Check out dog photos:-)). Great place to visit with friends.

Had an amazing dinner! Elias, our server, was super knowledgeable and gave great recommendations including subbing the mashed potatoes instead of grits for the short ribs starter (10/10 highly recommend) every single item we had was amazing and the pecan pie cheesecake is to die for.

Everyone loved it.. we will go back. One of my friends had the lamb and the other had the filet. We were all happy. Would like to see more on the wine list but it was fine.

Making the reservation I indicated we were celebrating a Birthday. When I checked in with the hostess no mention of who is celebrating a Birthday. Our server did not ask if we were celebrating a special occasion. This was our fourth time eating here; the previous three dining experiences were above average. Tonight’s meal and experience was subpar. Every server has an off night and it seems our server was going through the motions.

I ordered the Berkshire pork chop medium. The middle of the chop was completely raw. However, let me say this, the flavor was spot on! Nonetheless, I sent the chop back. What came back was dried out over cooked chop. Our kid ordered a grilled cheese and we had to remind the server that grilled cheese came with fries. One last thing, when we made the reservation apparently there was special promotion tonight, complimentary dessert. We ordered one dessert. When the check came, the charge for the dessert was on our bill. I didn’t bring it to the servers attention due to the number of missteps that had already occurred.
