Food took forever and came out lukewarm, last time I was there it was thick Cut bacon, this time just regular thin cut bacon, super underwhelming food. The cinnamon roll was fantastic though!

The Copper Hen is a fun restaurant and bar, however, the brunch food was mediocre coming late and lukewarm. The hash browns had little flavor. The wine was flat. Tap lines on the beer had not been cleaned. The one positive was service - very attentive and friendly.

First visit back to Copper Hen since COVID restrictions have lifted. Best tuna nicoise I've ever had, and the heirloom tomato toast starter was so good!

The dish I ordered was not cooked correctly and they knew it. I was not charged for that dish. It was very disappointing as I took a friend there for the first time

Great service. Food was good overall. French toast was a bit mushy. We tried to sit inside but it was way too loud. So they were very accommodating to move us outside. Overall it was great and I would definitely go back.

This was a great space to gather with friends and celebrate. The food and drinks were fabulous, the decor was lovely, and the host and waiter were both incredibly kind and understanding when members of the party were running late. We will be going back soon!

After reading other reviews, we were honestly surprised how mediocre the meal was. The restaurant itself is cute, and the rhubarb/strawberry pie was very good, but otherwise, the experience was not memorable. Our server was clearly off last night, which didn't help matters, as she wasn't very attentive or helpful about the menu or really anything else. Food-wise, we had the hot chicken sandwich (definitely not hot, and missing almost anything, flavor wise, as were the home fries that were the side) and the paella, which had all the pieces to be a good dish, but just wasn't seasoned much at all. Overall, the theory behind farm to table comfort food is good, but we were really disappointed in the complete lack of seasoning in our meals. At the price ($100 for 2 with only 1 drink each), I expect something much more than "not too bad".

I reserved a table there for a party of 6 on Saturday morning. We were all pleasantly surprised by the lovely atmosphere and breakfast options. We were going to sit inside but it being so nice, the host and other servers accommodated us outside. The host and indoor servers were quite amazing. Such positive energy and great service! Our server outside was great, good with refilling our drinks and splitting our bill and timing things . Love the food and the friendly host and servers! Food was amazing--especially the bottomless mimosas (a lovely surprise)! I know I will definitely be coming back!

Service was great, drinks work so unique and flavorful. That was high end lemonade. Very good honey based old fashion. Flavors of the food were excellent. Macaroni and cheese was amazing. We loved the hamburger and the steak. The fried chicken sandwich was good. The desserts were awesome especially the skillet cookie.

I’m recognizing the difficulty that Covid has presented the restaurant industry, we appreciate the effort of copper hen to remain open and try to provide food and service to the community and employment for their staff. However, our dining experience in May 2021 was not great. The glasses given to us for water were very dirty along the rim such that I could scrap residue off the rim, and my partner felt some of it in his mouth. The appetizer was very well done and tasty. However, the main course lacked flavor, and the sandwich I ordered was very disappointing and not unlike anything I couldn’t make at home. The cupcakes were very dry. Utensils were forgotten. Our Menu selections needed to be reminded. Again, it does not please me to write such a review given that I do enjoy this restaurant and I know things must be strained given Covid. But standards lacked this evening. It was disappointing.

We went on a Thursday for the date night special.
I had the pretzel, pot pie and a cup cake. My Husband got the salad and New York strip. We both thought our food was delicious.
I was a little hesitant of getting the pot pie from reading other reviews. But it was great.
Got the cup cakes to go. They are currently in the fridge. So I can’t rate them , yet.

Relaxed dining in a quiet atmosphere, The Copper Hen ticked all our boxes, as we flipped the process, and attended a dessert tasting for an upcoming event we are hosting, followed by dinner: a delicious and intriguing dish of walleye and polenta. Though the process was filled with deliberation, we both discovered our favorite cupcakes: Rich chocolate for the partner and a delicious and history-filled raspberry for me- Much thanks for an enjoyable dining experience!

We had an 8:00am reservation but arrived 10 minutes early. Instead of greeting our party of four and seating us, a waitress ran out and yelled that they weren't open yet. The bartender came from behind the bar and stated that they weren't open yet. We went out and sat in our car until 8:05am and when we reentered there were people seated. The door was open and the open sign was visible on the door when we arrived. It was strange and I was relieved that our server was not the one who had run out from the back to yell at us. The food was good but seemed to either meat or veggie menue choices without a good complementary combination of both. Also, not a fan of maple or mystery spices. The scanning for menues was awkward as well. Especially for older persons such a myself who have lots of money to spend but don't spend it on latest greatest technology.

Went in for birthday and was put in back corner and ignored. The only time we were really acknowledged was when we ordered or when they took our drinks
