Every small town has a bar and if that bar’s worth a nickel, it’s got good whiskey. At Copper, we’ve got whiskey for every occasion and no shortage of the town’s best eats. Get to know the bartender, and all the regulars too, cause the bar stories are good. Supper is always your favorite, cause we know you that well.

My burger was good as was my wife’s ravioli. That said, it’s a hotel restaurant short on staff.

We are a pretty easy going crew who enjoys a good meal and cocktails. I would like to start off by saying that our server Brooke was wonderful. Brooke was very attentive and personable. We ordered burgers, bison meatloaf, and salmon. As foodies, we don’t have any reservations about paying for quality food. We were very disappointed in our meals. Everything lacked spices and the meals were very bland. I really hate to leave a negative review, we aren’t those people, but this was very disappointing experience.

Was there for my wife’s birthday. Reservations were for 8:30 as soon as we sat down they told us the kitchen was closing and we had to order immediately. Overall was rushed and just not special like we hoped. Order her a birthday desert and they served it as if nothing special was happening. Poor service overall. They were cleaning while we finished eating. The main courses were good though.

Copper had amazing potential from the moment we walked in. Loved the fireplace with seating area in the lobby. The ambience was awesome. Loved the background music and decor. We had an awesome server who made sure to keep our drinks filled and checked on us regularly. The menu was enticing and plenty to choose from. Unfortunately, our food was sub-par. We ordered blackened salmon which was served over-cooked, edges burnt, very dry. Served with carrots and Brussel sprouts which would have been a perfect choice except they were cold. We also ordered the sliders off the appetizers and two out of 3 were also cold. Ordered the fried Brussel sprouts to go with the sliders, also off the appetizers, which looked awesome but were also cold. To Copper’s credit, we did not make a complaint or I am sure they would have made us fresh meals. It was NY Day and we had a 5:30 reservation and they were not busy. We will probably visit again and give it another chance and hopefully the kitchen can get the food temps figured out. It has awesome potential.

Lost our food order after 2 hour wait due to staffing shortage. and had to box up food to go as only way back to mountain was our 9:30 shuttle. They offered to comp some drinks but felt like they should have comped the food that we had to box up. Shrimp and grits were too salty and pasta wasn’t tasty.
Bad experience and manager should have stepped up. Our waiter was good considering he was waiting on the entire restaurant. Read your other reviews. We should have before we made reservation and went to trouble of leaving the mountain.

The service was horrible. We had a family of 5 that took over 2.5 hrs to get served and out of there. It took them 30 minutes to get drinks from the bar alone. We finally asked that our food come out as it was ready and not wait to bring it all out at once. Our service was a female and she was not good. We asked that if our appetizer was going to come out at the same time our food was we didn’t want to order it. We were not the only ones that had a 2.5 hour horrible experience. A family of 7 with a baby was behind us and they acknowledged that they felt sorry for us as they had just gone through the bad service and long wait with the same server. The server blamed the long wait on being short staffed but we were here back in February and had good service at the bar. Shameful service and won’t be retuning. Food wasn’t very good except for the steaks my sons had.

We had a terrible experience unfortunately. We waited over an hour for our food & when it arrived it was not good. The service was poor and everyone working there seemed to be fighting with each other. We would have left but we had 3 hungry kids with us.

The food was good but the dining experience was disappointing. The bartenders seem to do double duty as servers too. That means they take your order and someone brings you the food. That is all the service there was. While the food was good, the price for this dinner was expensive and did not match the lack of service. It might as well be counter service…..place your order and put a number on your table. We were celebrating a birthday and it was a disappointing experience. We would not choose to dine there again.

Disappointed that items on the website menu couldn’t be ordered. We were told they were only available during happy hour. Our reservation was 15 minutes later on a Sunday. We had 2 kids chicken strip meals. Both came with an undercooked piece of chicken.

Disappointing dinner at Copper. Like lots of places around Big Sky, Copper is short staffed. Our waiter was also the bartender, so his attention was divided. Copper advertises itself as a whiskey bar, but didn’t even have a whiskey list.

Menu is reduced, so three of us had the Steak Frites. The steak was not hot enough when served to even melt the butter on top.

Server could not have cared less about his job. Very little knowledge of the menu. He kept coughing into his hand and proceeded to make our drinks.

The place was beautiful and should have been packed but was virtually empty. Exactly 4 entree items. We paid for our drinks and left to find another restaurant.

The food here just isn’t very good, plus the menu is much too limited right now. The only steak they had was a tenderloin (sauce was not good and it was raw), and the hangar steak (sauce was weak). They need to hire a chef with more saucier skill. On a good note, the smoked wings were amazing as always!

We've eaten there several times. It's been fine. This time the bourbon maple chicken was not on the menu. The whiskey flights were gone. It supposed to ba whiskey bar. My steak frites the steak was cooked un evenly. I ask for medium rare. It was more rare than medium rare. It was kind of disappointing.

Food was wildly mediocre. I got the chopped salad and the main ingredient was the ranch dressing. The burgers came with way too much mustard already on them. The fries were cold. It took forever to get our cocktails. We were still in and out in less than an hour despite the fact we were hoping for a nice night out and longer dining experience. Overall not great.

The restaurant has a cool vibe, but the steak frites couldn’t feed a toddler. A single bite costs around 10 dollars, so take advantage of every one. As a 180lb man, I’d recommend ordering at least 3 steaks to fill you up. However, if you’re wanting to eat something other than red meat, you have a whopping one option. I’ve seen lemonade stands with more choices.

It was a very sparse menu. The steak filet was flavorless. No mashed or baked potatoes as I had ordered so they brought French fries out with my filet. The appetizer truffle fries were tasty. The wings were ok. Afterward I was wishing I had spent my $150 on the street vendors outside. The cost/value to the quality were just not there.
