Thank you to the Copper Hen for accommodating 10 adults and a toddler for my mom's birthday! It was a really fun, delicious experience and everyone left feeling satisfied! Always a pleasure to dine here.

Lots of hype making the top 100 brunch spots in the country list, but the food was just 'meh', except for the cream cheese caramel roll. Biscuits and gravy were bland and goopy. Farmers breakfast was basic, but good, especially the bread pudding french toast (very good). Overall, not great compared to some of the other amazing breakfast spots in town.

The omelettes were very light, very nice texture, and the ingredients had a nice flavor. The coffee was great and the service was very good.

I was really excited to try The Copper Hen but was actually extremely disappointed. We made a reservation and got seated right away, however we didn’t even get water for 15 minutes. Upon our water arriving the busser handed us off to someone else whom never showed up. Another waitress showed up to tell us another waiter left so we had been sitting for over a half hour before we even got someone to talk to us. The food was good and we planned on getting dessert but the waitress brought out the check without asking so we decided against it. For a place that serves desserts regularly it seemed odd she didn’t even ask or speak to us at all beyond taking our order. Overall, we just felt like an inconvenience to the restaurant.

I've been to The Copper Hen a few times now, and am consistently impressed by the food. I've never had anything I didn't like. However, the level of service leaves quite a bit to be desired. Service is slow and the servers I've had have been remarkably inattentive. It shouldn't take 15 minutes to come back to the table to take our order when we've had our menus set aside for 10, for example. What keeps me coming back is the delicious food. Do yourself a favor when you go and order the Woke Up Crabby toast - it's delicious!

So delicious! Was in Minneapolis for the weekend for the first time from Chicago and found this little brunch spot. Had the biscuits and gravy that came with eggs on top cooked perfectly. The potatoes were seasoned with a very small kick and had mouthwatering sauteed onions mixed it. The sauce that comes with it is nothing like I've ever tasted. It's like a sour cream mixed with ranch. So. Damn. Good. And then of course, bottomless mimosas are just the icing on the cake. 10/10 recommend.

We'd heard wonderful things about the Copper Hen but had never been there and were looking forward to a terrific dinner for Mother's Day! However, we were disappointed. We had a 5:30 DINNER reservation! Instead of dinner, we were served the Brunch buffet - scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, bacon, fried potatoes, muffins, etc. We were told that brunch was over at 2:00. They did add mac and cheese, pot pies and a bowl of spinach leaves to make it seem more like dinner. At $28. a head it was not what we expected...nor was it worth the price! We do want to go back to see if the Copper Hen lives up to its reputation! At this point, I can't recommend it.

Mother's day brunch. Disappointed. Foods were dry (French toast bread pudding, breakfast potatoes, biscuits -even with the gravy, baked Mac and cheese)The pastries had very little flavor. Nobody in my party was impressed or thought it was worth $27.95.
I wouldn't recommend or go back for brunch but I would like ordering off the menu.

Was seated 45 min late for our reservation. Never offered a drink or anything while waited. Not given an approx wait time upon arrival either. Poor service all around and exactly why I wouldn't return it recommend. Where were the managers here???

Food was fine but not for the money you spend. Items were empty, cold or just messy. Highly over rated establishment.

I went for Mother's Day brunch. I was good, but not stellar. Good assortment of options. If you don't eat two plates, it's over-priced. It was buffet style and the food could have been hotter. I would probably return for a regular off the menu meal.

Food was good. Our server was good. There for a 9:15AM brunch with my mom. Spent about $90 - bloodies, bread basket, two entrees. It was a Saturday, for mother’s day. We paid our bill and had 1/4 drink left each and a totally different server told us they had a 2 hour limit. It was 10:27AM.

I had been to a wedding a year ago at The Copper Hen and the food was fabulous. I can’t believe it took me a year to get back to try dinner. The wait was worth it!! Everything we ordered was delicious and the service was upbeat and friendly. Can’t wait to go back and try brunch !! Absolutely would recommend anyone to go! You will not be disappointed !

Service very slow though pleasant. Close quarters. Crowded. Noisy. Menu sounded tasty but execution lacked. Mac and cheese very good and presented well. Farmers salad tasty, colorful + seasoned well though presentation too understated. Margarita Pizza Okay with average crust. Bread flavorless and dry. Beef sandwich difficult to eat and dry. Overdone frys. Another sandwich completely forgettable - shrimp? Strawberry orange butter crispy crust hand shaped pie excellent flavor and appearance. Center piece was dead flowers/shrub. Waitress VERY busy though certainly was trying to tend to everyone just couldn’t. Neglected to return after food delivered to inquire if okay. Needed to ask for more water 2x.

Enjoyable lunch with friends. Food was very good. It was lunch time 1:00 but we were only given brunch menus. Is this the regular practice? Only drawback was the noise level. Way too loud for groups.

We were there for brunch on Saturday. The food was delicious, but the service was very slow. We had reservations at noon, were seated at 12:30 and were served water at 1 p.m.. The noise level was nearly unbearable. I had a splitting headache by the time we got our food at about 1:15. I would love to go back for the food, but I don't think I could tolerate that noise level again. I have to say that I loved our waitress, she was very sweet.
