We really enjoyed our Thanksgiving meal out while our kitchen is demolished during a renovation. While our meals were very good, overall this is not a stellar value for the price.

I put a message in the reservation and told our waiter...my 6 yr old daughter picked this place to celebrate her birthday. They did not do anything out of the ordinary for her.
I brought back a growler, our waiter said he couldn’t refill it but then he changed his mind and said he could. He brought us back the growler with no top, explaining that we didn’t bring in a top and he would have to charge us $10 for a top. I explained that we couldn’t take an open container in the vehicle home. He had to check if he could void it off our tab.
We have dined here several times but tonight was such a let down.
The food was ok, my steak had a few gristly pieces and the salad did not have enough dressing. I was finished before our waiter returned and I could as for more dressing.

We had Brunch here for my Niece’s belated birthday present. They were very accommodating towards my 6 year old daughter’s needs and kept the flow pace running smoothly. There was a situation with their third party system involving gift cards but they were still able to honor them when we went to pay out. The items were varied (cauliflower hash, smoked Gouda grits, ricotta pancakes, lobster eggs Benedict, apple crumb pie, mimosas, bloody Mary’s with housemate beef jerky, pear bellinis, all very good! When you sit down they bring you seasoned popcorn they make in a machine around the bar which is novel and fun. It’s a very solid location to come out and see these guys are up too!

The service we received was excellent. Attentive and detailed. We enjoyed the food and the adult beverages. Brussel sprouts were the highlight for us! Says a lot since we are meat eaters!! They helped us create a meal for our fur babies on both occasions that really made the difference for us!! We will be back!

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.

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.
