It's very noisy! No matter where you sit. On the weekend they only have a brunch menu and not the usual lunch menu so some folks don't get the choices they wish they could.

The food and drinks are amazing! I always get good service and the place is just so cute! The only negative are how close the tables are together.

Delicious food. Dark wood and big street-view windows create a very pleasant ambience for brunch. Nice choice of ala carte items allows you to mix and match.

Had brunch here before going to the children's theater and was sadly disappointed. The Copper Benedict was cold when I got it and I was unable to cut through the meat and bread. I sent it back and the refreshed version was hot but otherwise no better. My 10- year old niece had the biscuits and gravy (no children's menu). She was unable to get her fork into the biscuits. We liked the atmosphere but, overall, wished we ate somewhere else.

The food was undercooked and our orders were incomplete. The wait staff was very accommodating but it seemed like the cooks were not doing their jobs well.

Our coffee mugs were clearly not washed well so I had to send it back. I also heard the lady next to us had to send back her silverware due to a similar issue. Might need to double check dishwasher protocols.

Our party had the salmon, the duck, the pot pie and the pork belly. Everything was delicious! We also enjoyed a boozy cupcake. The bar service was a little slow, but the server more than made up for it. We will be back!

The food was good, but some of the choices that made the flavors unusual, different then the standard, were more interesting than successful. The home fries were awesome, as was the bread pudding french toast. I would be willing to go there again and try other things on the menu.

I loved our food, speaking for everyone in our group. The only small issue I had was it seemed a bit close in there, little cramped sitting so close to the next table. I would go back again and I would recommend.

We've been to the Copper Hen before and enjoyed the food and service. This time was a Sunday visit and the experience was the opposite of the first. It took a long time to get service, then a long time to get our food. Once the food showed up, we had to ask for silverware. Seems they were "looking for it", as they had run out. So our food sat for five minutes, until the silverware was found. Wow, I've never experienced that before. Not sure if we will return?

This is a brunch review only:

My girlfriend, her 6 year old, and I have eaten here twice so far. We've eaten pancakes, pretzels, biscuits and gravy, and several of their main breakfast dishes. Additionally we sampled their bottomless mimosas and menu cocktails. Thus far nothing has disappointed. One minor plating mistake was quickly rectified. We do not hesitate to order anything off the menu nor would we recommend this place for friends and family. There is a audible din to the atmosphere, but having and holding a conversation isn't difficult.

Duck was excellent! Chicken pot pie was underdone (crunchy potatoes) and lacked seasoning. Lobster fries were just ok - overpriced for what you get. Ran out of pizzas and the brie appetizer by 7:45pm on a Saturday which seemed a little bit early.

Adorable venue we were there at 9 am and it wasn't noisy but it wasn't packed either. Loved everything about it. The food was very good only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it wasn't hot when it came to the table - it was warm. Not a reason to stay away though - maybe our server was distracted or something. I am totally going back!

Not sure what’s going on at Copper Hen. Ordered their “famous” chicken pot pie - it was absolutely horrible. It took forever to get our food. When it arrived, it was Gray, doughy crust, soupy filling, hard undercooked vegetables. It seemed like it was a warmed up frozen meal. Some of the vegetables were ice cold. I had to return my food. The waitress apologized and brought a new one from the kitchen, after another long wait. Same thing the second time around. Huge disappointment.

Doesn't live up to the reviews. Was too loud, understaffed for their legendary breakfast/brunch rush, food was lukewarm and mushy. Copper hen feels like the kind of place making specialty breakfast food for the sake of specialty. They should refine the basics first.

I always enjoy Copper Hen. The food is always very tasty, the environment is charming and cool (actually a little bit cold sitting along the stone wall). I had previously been there for brunch a few times. This time I decided to take a friend from out of town for dinner. We shared the Brussels Sprouts Caesar which was a new refreshing taste. My friend got the Pesto, Mozzarella Pizza and I had the Chicken Pot Pie. Both were delicious. The veloute sauce in the pie was so creamy good. The vegetables in the pie were not fully cooked unfortunately, which would have made it even better.

The food was to die for. Unfortunately, it took nearly an hour to get it. Our server had a hard time remembering our drinks and seemed a bit spacy. We'll give it another shot because it was that tasty, but expect a wait.

I love CH, but the food is never hot enough by the time I receive it. Food is delicious, but consistently that is my main complaint with the food. It also took a long time for our waitress to take care of our check, and the host eventually noticed and took care of it for us.

Our food was amazing. I had the Farmer MAC burger on the house-made gluten free bread and it was maybe the best burger I have ever had. My husband had the lobster mac & cheese and was equally happy with his choice. We both had house cocktails that were delicious. We have always loved Copper Hen and this visit just reminded us why.

Absolutely love this restaurant. I have been here for brunch, lunch, and dinner. In my book, if I don't know where to go eat Copper Hen always gets a vote. Food is always outstanding. There havent been a thing that I didn't like. Everything is fresh and comes out hot. The atmosphere is inviting and warm. Service has always been great. The only thing that I don't like much, is that if I don't have a reservation waiting time can be up to an hour in a half. It's a good thing regarding business, but in the cold of Minnesota winter, it could be hard.

Wonderful atmosphere! Close seating so really noisy when full house. The food was great, but on a Sunday at noon, took a long time to get to us. Not a problem since we had a lot to talk about, but go prepared for that. Food was great, but fries were cold and a bit dry. Server was swamped, but still remained very friendly; just didn't see a lot of her. Best rose white tea!

I would definitely go again though. Probably so much better during times of less crowds.
