This was a novel experience with booking through Open Table. We received a reminder of our confirmed reservation the day before, and a traffic update just before we set out for the restaurants - and now a request for a review. Yet, when we arrived, the restaurant was locked up and a sign said "Closed for the Season". Is this "Virtual Dining" - all that is missing is the actual restaurant meal?
I'm sorry I did not take a picture of that note to post on the website. How can I rely on Open Table in the future? I must say they apologized very nicely, but from now on, I shall have to call a reserved restaurant to make sure it is open.

This was the last day of their winter season. They will be closed until May sometime. The lamb chops were delicious. The raclette appetizer was just right, and unique for the valley here, using sweet potatotes under the melted raclette cheese. If I was going by myself, I would order just that, and a dessert, and call it delicious meal. We go here aboiut once a month, as we did when it was Peter Steigler in charge./
On another note, I asked about wheelchair access and they told me they "have a ramp" that they would get out for me. This is barely acceptable. I think they could build a ramp on the farther-away set of steps. Or at least 2 "tracks" for the wheels and leave the steps open in between. I do not need a wheelchair right now, but I know people who do, and they won't come here.

Copper Bar is a classic old school Alpine restaurant, perfect for a fabulous ski town. I have visited several times and the vibe is authentic, friendly, relaxing and honors the traditions of Stieglers, but is achieving its own distinction. Food, service, drinks and wine are all done well

This was a total disappointment. We have enjoyed Steiglers for many years, but will not return to Copper Bar. The food was disappointing, the service was slow, the décor is looking tired, and the attention to detail that Steigler's was known for was missing. For example, although the waiters wore traditional Austrian white shirts, they were neither fresh nor ironed, and ours was missing the traditional tie. Altogether, very sloppy all around. What a shame.

In the past we have loved every meal that we have had at Steigler's and now the Copper Bar. We were worried when the transition took place, but the new owners wisely decided to keep the same theme, menu, and chief. The food, ambience, service, etc. has always provided a great dining experience - until last night. My children and grandchildren are visiting from Texas for Spring Break skiing. We decided to take them to the Copper Bar for dinner. While the ambience was still the same complete with a roaring fire, the rest of the evening was a disaster. The waiter was a great guy and retrospectively I should have handled things differently, but the meal was awful. First, 3 of the 4 adult meals were not what we ordered - not even close. The waiter offered to take them back but we had waited so long (yes, the wait time was unacceptable) for the meals to be served coupled with young children ( 6 and 10) tired from traveling, we accepted the meals. This was an extremely bad decision. The weinersnitzel which was incorrectly severed ( 3 of us ordered the Bratwurst plates) was cold and relatively tasteless. The usual sides which come with this dish were different and not particularly good. Again, I should have sent everything back ( and to his credit the waiter offered) but due to time factor, tired grandchildren, and a large degree of personal embarrassment in recommending the restaurant, I did not. The bill was significant - around $250.00- which would have been fair had the meal come anywhere close to what we have become used to. Everyone can have a bad night and I hope that was the case with our meal. We will go back because for 30 years we have enjoyed this restaurant. If however our experience of last night has become the norm then we will reluctantly have to file Steigler's/ The Copper Bar into our book of pleasant previous memories. I hope our next experience (and potentially our last) will come up to their previous standards. It has been a great place for so long.

Having dined at steiglers almost every year since the mid 80s I'd say the new owners of now "copper bar" have upheld all the traditions while adding some nice upgrades. Definitely recommend for a fine dining experience. Slightly pricey.

This restaurant features Austrian food. The food was well prepared and the service and atmosphere were excellent. It is fairly expensive though, so best for special occasions. You can also eat in the bar, but the menu is fairly limited. The menu and food are much the same as Stiegler's, the previous owner of the restaurant.

Seriously this place has nothing to do with Alpine food properly prepared.

Food and place are just ok, but they should not advertise it as a taste of the Alps.

The current (new) owners have done a good job keeping the Austrian flavor of this iconic local gem. Many of the dishes are the same as when it was (for over 25 years) Stiegler's. The bar menu is shorter and less expensive than the dining room menu, but we prefer the dining room because it is quiet. On a side note, if I was in a wheelchair, I do not know how I could get into this restaurant. Is there a secret handicapped access?

This may be the only restaurant in Jackson that still features table cloths! It is a nice quiet environment, and the serving staff was bright and intelligent. The food is even better after the change in ownership, although some old favorites are sadly missing (Leberknödelsuppe and Sweetbreads).

The food was amazing. Nice selection of Swiss/German food. The baked brie appetizer is delicious. I could have been fine just getting 4 of those. Great service. Great atmosphere. A little tricky to find, and not many parking spaces, but other than that a great night out.

Food was overpriced. The menus appeared sloppy and worn. Three of us ordered Tournedos Kaiser Franz which is a staple item. After taking our orders the waitress returned to inform us that they did not have this item. It was a Friday night, a busy night. The menu should have been redone if this item was no longer available. Or at the very least the waitress should have know this when we ordered. The caesar salad was dry and tasted strongly fishy. A baked pear dessert was drizzled with a bright red sauce that tasted like red hots candy. The overall quality was disappointing. We have been customers at this restaurant for 30 years.

This was our third visit to Copper Bar since its' opening. The first visit was shortly after opening and the food was good, if unremarkable but the service needed a little fine tuning. The second visit was even better with prompt service and quite good food. However, this third visit was very disappointing. Though the service was fine, the food was mediocre at best and in some respects unacceptable. One of three orders of steak tartare seemed old and was not fully garnished while all 3 orders looked preformed. Two entrees of weiner schnitzel were only half edible, each with one piece of schnitzel OK and the second piece over fried and greasy. The trout entrée was overcooked and the pork schnitzel was OK but uninspired. All in all, an experience not to be repeated until major changes take hold at this once iconic Austrian restaurant.

Very pleasant restaurant with Austrian theme. They should advertise that more as it adds to the ambiance. Wonderful waitress with great knowledge of cuisine. Nice selection of Austrian wines in which I've had no prior experience.

Also, very quiet and easy to have conversations. I liked the low level of lighting, never liked restaurants that flood the room with bright lights.

Only down side was that the patio faced a pool where people were swimming. so, not easy to enjoy the mountain view.

Outdoor dining was fun, though listening to kids play Marco Polo in the adjacent pool was somewhat distractive. Food was good, though somewhat overpriced. Service was friendly but a little amateurish (you don't put silverware used for an appetizer back on the table to be used for dinner).

It's hard to carry on after the former beloved restaurant sold, but I appreciate the effort to try to preserve what was special and try to evolve the restaurant and bar to please varying clientele. Keep the Alpine favorites (I still rate the schnitzel top notch!), push the high end mixology and add more small plates to share! We westbankers still love you!
