AMAZING band (Pez Head), good food, great drinks (they had High Noon seltzers which is my fav), and awesome vibe. I think they’re short staffed but the server hustled so if you do cut cut them some slack.
The food was terrible. Place looked runned down.
Always a good time at Coopers. Good bands and a nice crowd of people. Well staffed with friendly staff. The negative feedback: Very stingy pours on a glass of wine. $9-13 a glass and maybe yield a few sips per glass, so an obvious money grab from Cooper's bar management! Appi's are pricey. But, that's to be expected and no cover charge for the music, so won't ding Cooper's too much on this. Overall, we do come back time and again because we enjoy ourselves and it is well run. But come on Coopers, be a bit more generous on the wine pour!
Service was excellent... sat by the window with a view of the river which was a plus. Food... so so. Not terrible but not rave worthy. Would probably go back for cocktails outdoors.
Beautiful spot on the river with so many options for seating inside or out. Multiple bars and your choice of a quiet corner or lively music. The staff was lovely and very attentive. Nick the manager was especially helpful and went out of his way to make sure our entire experience was perfect!
Waitress was great!!!!! Out food could of been a lot better for what we paid. French toast was way over cooked.. not sure how you even do that because I’m a chef myself and I have never had overcook French toast. My daughter had a steak and it was supposed to be medium rare and it was basically well done and hard to chew… paid 21 dollars for that and it should have been cooked perfectly. My husbands eggs were supposed to be over easy and they were cooked over hard….. it would have taken just a couple of minutes to redo the eggs ….. food is over priced I think you pay for being on the river so that’s why people are willing to pay…. Most places offer free refills on fountain drinks and you do not ….. I run a restaurant so I also know that it’s good business and fountain drinks are cheap….
It was very nice
Enjoyed sitting outside listening to the band. Had great weather. Friendly staff. Good food. Will be back.
Got a salad that was soooo small. The old bay fries were good but again very small portion for two people. The staff were nice but very slow. Not sure if they were pulled in other directions but really didn’t see much of them. Food and drinks took a while to arrive. The place is nice but needs more staff. Also we were given a pencil to fill out the check. I’d rather have a pen. Thought the pencil was odd.
Great view great food went for brunch for Father's Day
Great service beautiful views and really good food
Open table reservation wasn’t honored. Restaurant way overbooked. Why even bother making a reservation?
I went there last night with my daughter to see the band and the band was spectacular. Understandably the service was a little slow and the food was
The food was horrible! Crab cakes were fishy. The sauce that went on them was mayonnaise and too much sweet pickle juice. The seafood buckets had some fake butter sauce on them. It took forever to get our drinks. They were sucky sweet cocktails. The only thing we enjoyed was the view. Huge waste of money and they need Gorden Ramsey to fix this place! We will not go back.
The place was not organized at all. The staff was all out of sorts and did not seem professional by any means. Sadly a venue with massive potential is being managed sub par. Would not recommend.
Service was quick and the outside dining area was very nice. The food was great!
Wonderful setting by the Delaware River. We felt we were on vacation
The place itself is ok,beautiful view and specious)) but the service and the food is awful! Waitress messed up our order a couple of times.There was a hair on my plate.While seving a pizza the waiter dropped a slice on the floor❌I have never experienced such a poor service.I would not recommend this place .
It took 40 minutes to get 2 cheeseburgers that were ordered medium rare but arrived well done, without the French fries that were included with the meal. Our waitress seemed to be having a very bad night. All in all we spent 1 hour 15 minutes to get 2 burgers ($12.00 each) and drinks, and nothing was up to par.
Food was decent. Drinks were good.
The food was good but the service was not very good. They had someone in training that wasn’t trained well waiting on us.
Place is nice, But we walked out because we hadn’t received food an hour and 15 minutes later.
Great time, service was good. Would recommend this place
The overall appearance & atmosphere was great. I just happened to notice that sitting by the windows near water, it could've been cleaned up more. The window ledges were dusty with some cob webs. Let slide because of the open space and things come in. But check windows.
Service was horrible. Server could not do two things at once. Appetizers came out cold. Main course came out staggered so it was delivered hot. So certain members were waiting to eat while others are almost finished. Ask server to keep an ice cream cake frozen for dessert.Brought it back to the table for dessert totally melted. Horrible experience, do not recommend.
Tables were walking out. We walked out prior to getting our dinner. Management didn’t care didn’t offer to help or to do anything to get our food in a timely fashion.
I would never recommend going there.
Mother’s Day! Terribly unorganized! Way to long to be greeted by server. Multiple people at other tables visibly unhappy with their service and food!
Tried to dine for Mother’s Day, unfortunately the place was a mess! The hostess was rude and clueless. We weren’t sat at the nice section of the restaurant but at the abandoned, dirty section facing the parking lot. The tables weren’t even cleaner off yet from brunch! Upon sitting and ordering just a few appetizers it took over an hour to receive. They gave us plastic utensils because there regular utensils were being “washed” the manager made things a better but overall we had appetizers and left and luckily made reservations else were! A total waste, disappointment. Won’t be returning ever
It was Mother’s Day. We had a 3:45 pm reservation for 5. We never had a waiter or waitress greet us after the hostess sat us. We even asked the hostess to see what was going on but 20 mins seemed too long to wait for nobody to ask us for assistance. I never like giving these type of reviews but something had to be mentioned. It seemed the hostess and staff was overwhelmed.
Very surprised since we went there quite a bit pre-Covid. Order delivery often from them now. Waited 20 minutes to be served. Another 20 minutes before food arrived cold.
Took it as a very tangible sign that it's too soom to be venturing out.
I nade a reservation Monday evening for Mother's day brunch @ 1:45 6 days in sdvance. A nice brunch menu w/ eggs benedicts to get them. Then the toasters next to the basket of assorted bagels & English muffins were not operating & 2 different male staff were unable to assist me. A tray of fruit was brought out w/ no tongs to serve it. Then there were no coffee mugs or hot coffee, but people were continuing to be seated & food replenished. Lastly, the women's bathroom door handle was falling off as I exited.
When making reservations for Mother's Day brunch I went to the website. Which did not list a buffet. When we got there, well we were there and hungry so we stayed. Not only did we not know about the buffet, neither did half the staff! The food was okay, only half was hot. As I have gone a few times the last month for music, I know their food can be really good. This wasn't it. I talked to a manager, who credited my daughters meal. Just very disappointing. Hoping our next visit is better.
Service was horrible. Wait time for drinks was horrible. Once we were seated, NO ONE came to take check on us/take a drink order for 20 minutes.
Food was cold, low quality, tasteless and service was non present but charged 27.00 per person for Limited Brunch menu.
Mother’s Day Brunch was very good, nice live music and the food and server’s were great as well. We will definitely be back.
Who takes reservations before you are ready to serve. 40 minute wait. Drink menu dated. Food was good once available. Felt very sorry for the servers who were trying to take care of their tables while simultaneously being put on the buffet line to serve. Btw the website didn’t even indicate that it was going to be buffet. Management needs to get a clue about running a restaurant if they are going to survive.
We went for a Mother’s Day brunch and the food was decent. I’d go there again regardless because I understand it has been hard to find staff nowadays.
The ambiance is nice specially for a couples middle age to enjoy music and food . We go there often on Saturday nights and on the stage there’s always a nice band playing. My criticism is just about the food what its the area it could be improved a little. I used to be a Cheff maybe that’s the reason I’m a little be more picky on . Other then that I love that place .
Vibe was good. Drinks were good. Music was great. Food was terrible.
The music was great! Food and service not so much.
