Copperwood is a neighborhood restaurant that serves local foods; great new relationship with oyster vendors.
Well, the food was good, once we eventually got it (shrimp and grits, French toast sticks). There were few patrons there when we placed our order, but yet we had to wait 30-40 minutes. Our server was nowhere to be seen during most of the wait time, and had no explanation for the long delay when he finally brought us our meals.
Copperwood’s web pages and emails need to specify restaurant hours for holiday brunch. I received not one, but two, emails advertising the Labor Day brunch, but nowhere were the opening hours stated. I then checked the website, all I could find were the normal Monday (lunch) hours (opening at 11). I figured brunch would be starting before that, so I thought by making a reservation I could figure out the hours. The earliest reservation available was at 10, so I took that, figuring that brunch started at 10. However, when we arrived, the place was nearly empty and some patrons had already finished their meal and were leaving...so, I guess it opened before 10. The sparse crowd at 10 made me wonder why there were no earlier reservations available. This was not the first time that advertising emails for holiday brunches failed to mention the hours...communication, it’s a wonderful thing!
Good for a pre-theatre meal if going to the Signature Theatre, a less than 5-minute stroll. During temperate weather, the outdoor tables are quieter than indoors, and there is prime people watching.
Salad portions are very generous — lighter diners may be satisfied with the appetizer-sized option. Everything tasted fresh. Medium steak was undercooked but promptly re-fired upon request. Service seemed well-intentioned but disorganized — no lead person or manager was apparent, to coordinate service efforts. Only half the tables were occupied, yet it took 15 minutes to prepare a standard martini. Local regional beers and liquors are featured, including several unique moonshines.
The restaurant was VERY noisy. My food was just OK. The staff were very friendly and polite but overworked handling the Sunday crowd.
I would love to see a kids menu! Great dog friendly outdoor patio.
Been there twice. Planning on going many more times. A little pricey but the food is legitimately worth it. Excellent place!
Good...as usual. Friendly waitress, food is back being good.
Best place to sit outside with the dog and having fun food
It was exceedingly loud. Completely unable to have a conversation. The food was just bad. The service was mediocre. Would not recommend.
Good food but I was very disappointed in the bbq. It had huge chunks of meat and it was tough to eat. And exceedingly messy. It's been better in the past.
It was a nice day and we wanted to sit outside but several people has dogs and it smelled bad so we went inside. Otherwise to food and service was good.
The manager was awesome, she made us feel welcomed and our waitress was so kind!
The service was good but there was a list with a special on it left on our table, but when we tried to order it, they said it was the wrong special. So, I ordered a halibut dish that was really poor. The fish was good, but the sauce on the fish and the accompanying sauce on the mango relish did not go together at all. The one on the fish was pretty bland and did nothing to make the fish stand out. The one on the mango relish was very bitter & spicy and it obscured the sweet flavor of the mango, which was not particularly ripe. I had a few bites and then gave up, which is not like me. I mentioned it to the waiter and was a bit surprised not to have something knocked off the bill or a free dessert as a gesture. This was a $26 entree. Just surprised by the lack of response and the poor quality of the dish. The other two dining with me were fine with their dishes. I did like that they actually had decaf coffee brewed and ready to go. That is not common in restaurants.
I’ve been to Copperwood Tavern several times and each time I’m more than pleased. The main protein and sides are always fantastic. The service is always great. We will be back!
Always a good spot for really good food with decent proportions. Recommend the short ribs and the pork chop.
The AC went out
Cozy atmosphere with an interesting variety of meat dishes for entrees. The service was perfect. Only complaint would be that the bench seats at this location are a little high and the restaurant was very warm inside, leading to some discomfort during the meal.
Great food. Service was very slow
Paul, Larsen, and Scott are what make Copperwood worth visiting on a regular basis. Thank you guys so much for your hospitality and excellent service
An ex-colleague and I had Sunday brunch and the food and drinks were good, along with the portions. Our server was knowledgeable of the food and very attentive. Good all around
A mixed review unfortunately. My husband enjoyed his fish but my steak salad wasn’t as good. I thought the steak was fatty and had an odd smell. I was also not a fan of the mushroom bruschetta. I was hoping for more - but perhaps we’ll give it another try in the future.
Birthday Dinner. Our waiter was excellent and the food was fantastic!
sat outdoors on a Thursday nite- busy street and we both enjoyed the food and the scene
Amazing as always. The service was phenomenal and the food was delicious. I will be returning soon.
We enjoyed the food, and the service was wonderful, but for a Sunday morning, the music was much too loud and very distracting.
Copperwood's food is always delicious! We like to come for a date night or for brunch with friends. The service is great and the waiters are knowledgeable and attentive. The outdoor patio is nice too!
we were there for a saturday brunch. the food was very good, the service was eh. besides getting our water we chased our waiter for every request after that. also, we had our one year old with us... they do not have a kids menu and their kids cup of water consisted of a to go coffee cup with a straw in it.
The food was really good but the service was just okay.
Nice happy hour
Loved sitting outside on a nice evening
Cucumber soup for a light lunch and a beer were very good. The soup had a large dollip of oil put on it which I scooped out because I can't do much oil. Was not indicated on menu.
The brunch options are all so tempting, and we recommend the ricotta pancakes with fried green tomatoes!
We ate outside and it was lovely. Our server was fantastic.
My boyfriend and I have been here for dinner many times, but this was our first brunch visit. The brunch menu was exciting and delicious and I only wish I could've tried some of everything on the brunch menu! We thoroughly enjoyed the Fried Chicken and Waffles and Bananas Foster French Toast, as well as the seasoned popcorn the waiter brought to us to munch on while we waited for our food. We'll definitely be back for brunch again (and again)!
Very high prices for mediocre to poor food. I’d been before at lunch and enjoyed it. The dinner menu was way over priced. Salads were so bitter neither of us could eat them. Only god food was $1 oysters
Great food. Streak cooked to perfection. Duck was also amazing. The side portions are definitely for sharing.
Dinner was awesome.... the seafood flavorful, the steak juicy & brussel sprouts delicious. It will be a mainstay for me.
We sat outside. Food and service were great. I will be back.
Snotty servers who roll their eyes when you ask them (politely) to bring food as you requested it (dressing on the side) definitely detract. It was totally uncalled for.
Very noisy, excessive dressing on salad, will always now ask for it on the side. Never sit on their bench seats, they are terrible. The pork chop great.
