Great food. Copperwood Tavern has a great idea of getting food from local sources. The waitstaff was very courteous and knowledgeable. Great overall experience.

Our entrees (steaks) were barely warm as was the apple pie dessert. Staff promptly fixed it. Steak was chewy although well seasoned.

Busy evening on 15th, but my food was cold. Sitting next to the outside doors, and you can feel a draft.

Service was very poor bordering on awful. Nearly had to literally grab a waiter to get his attention to replace a drink after it was served in a glass with a large chip. Food was good with one major exception - my rib eye steak and side of mushrooms were cold. Given the poor service to that point I did not want to send them back and have to wait another 20 mins while others in my party ate. The "rib eye" wasn't a rib eye cut - I think it was closer to a flank steak.
Other guests enjoyed their salmon and duck and the appetizers and sides were good - noting special but good.

The decor is such that it's very noisy and difficult to hear from the constant din - everyone's conversation just echoes off the walls making it quite noisy to the point that everyone talks louder which makes it worse. Wait staff were soft spoken and couldn't be heard or hear unless we yelled.

Perhaps a fun place to drink at the bar and watch sports when you expect noise - won't go there for dinner again.

Our server Evelyn was friendly and very helpful in pointing out that we were still in time to take advantage of the Happy Hour oysters. It was a bit crazy but it was Valentines Day. Evelyn convinced one of us to try the surf and turf special fo the evening which he enjoyed very much. My wife and I opted for the tomahawk steak. We were disappointed that it wasn’t presented standing like during our previous visit. Visually it just wasn’t as impressive but the server explained that the standing presentation caused some steaks to slip and fall off the platter. Copperwood may need to consider a new and better platter system with stand to again impressively present the tomahawk. Other steak places have developed more stable stands. The splatchcoked chicken was moist and tender with crispy which another in our group enjoyed. We enjoyed the dinner: food was good, service a little spotty due to Valentine crowd (our second round of wine arrived after we were finished with our entrees). But all the staff were helpful and friendly - made for an enjoyable evening.

What an amazing night! Every dish we ate was flavorful and well prepared. JaRon is the best waiter with excellent food suggestions! The short ribs were tender, the pork chop was seasoned well and brussel sprouts nice and crispy. Can’t wait to go back!

The food prices were out of line for the quality. The taste was not something that I will remember. I had the rib-eye and for the price I paid, it should have been worth bragging to my friends that I found a great place. It was unremarkable. The waiter did an outstanding job though.

Based on the menu, I had high hopes for this place, but after some stellar appetizers, the four entrees at our table were hit or miss. The halibut was first-rate, the duck was quite good, the steak was just average, and the rabbit was completely inedible.... One of the worst things I've ever tasted, frankly -- and certainly not worth the price. Service was slow, despite a nearly empty dining room, but our server was pleasant and reasonably attentive. Just not an experience worth paying $400 for. I will not be coming back.

Was a birthday, noted on OpenTable but never mentioned. Server just kind of showed up to our table, no intro, welcome (thought he was just pouring water). No kids menu offered or anything that came with it.

Great happy hour with $3 beer/wine and $1 oysters. Dinner was good but nothing very memorable. Food was warm but not hot. And overpriced in my opinion. Service was fine but again nothing memorable. I don’t feel the need to rush back.

Attentive service, but not overbearing. It was our anniversary and we did not want to be rushed. We each ordered the filets, which were cooked perfectly and melted in your mouth. Sides were enormous and equally good. We should have followed our waitress' advice and shared! Wine was delicious, as well as my husband's martini. It was a wonderful evening! Looking forward to returning.

Really disappointed experience overall. Atmosphere is lacking - nothing on the table at all and it was not particularly clean. Service was very slow and were only a handful of parties in the restaurant. My salad was pretty good but no bread or anything which would have been nice addition. The cocktail was excellent. I won’t eat here again.

This place should be better. Had the duck hash and the broth was super salty, almost inedible. The rest of the dish was good, but the grits I ordered on the side were also undercooked and very gritty, not creamy. They give you popcorn instead of complimentary bread, which I would prefer. They don’t provide toast or biscuits with a dish of eggs and potatoes at brunch. Seems kind of cheap. You also have to ask for salt and pepper. Really? The restroom could be cleaner and better maintained (loose seat, difficult latch, paper strewn on floor and the restaurant was nearly empty!). It’s not like they were slammed with customers. Finally, they re-set a table nearby and left popcorn on the floor. Inattention to detail. The prices are quite expensive so overall not a great value. Service was fine. They’d better watch out, there’s a lot of great competition around!

I went a year ago and a friend and I shared the bacon blue cheese mussels. They were delicious and there was plenty of it to share. I have been craving them ever since. I just went again and I was excited to get the mussels again. Well, it was still the same price but now it was in a small bowl with two pieces of bread. I was with a different friend this time and I was embarrassed that it was barely enough to share! So we had to order the Baked Brie appetizer. Another $14 that I didn’t intend on spending. I wouldn’t suggest bringing kids here also. The waiter said they don’t have a written kids menu but he spouted off that they had a sliders meal or Mac n cheese meal. My daughter got the sliders. Maybe it was my mistake for not asking price, but it was $12 for 3 tiny burgers. I figured it would be about $8 or $9. Definitely not worth $12. My daughter only ate 1 of the burgers because she didn’t think they were very good.
I am very disappointed. This place has really gone downhill. That is probably why there was nobody else there at prime dinner time. Other friends of mine went a year or two ago and had a great experience then went again in November with out of town guests. They also were embarrassed with how mediocre the food was. I believe they got the fried green tomatoes and short ribs, just like last time. This time, not so good! I don’t know if you have a different kitchen staff, but you need to get back the old staff!!

Great ambiance and great food! We went at 11 a.m. for a Sunday brunch. Our party of 7 each ordered something different and everyone loved it. Nice atmosphere w a fire burning on a cool day. Will go again!

We all loved our mains which consisted of the pork chop, the venison, and the french onion soup. The sides were good and our server was on point. This place is worth another visit.

Came here for Saturday brunch and it’s a cute little spot. Fun menu items and good atmosphere. They had popcorn with BBQ seasoning. Interesting mix. Wasn’t a fan at first but keto eating it while waiting for food and it kinda grew on me. There’s an outdoor patio and will come back to dine outside when it’s warmer.

We were really disappointed in our meal at Copperwood Tavern. The first thing we noticed was that the interior is 'worn'. (tear in the bench seat, stain on the wall next to the table, etc.) Next, we were disappointed to find that at 1:00 in the afternoon, they would not serve their lunch menu, only their brunch menu. While our server was very pleasant, it took forever to get our food. When it did come it tasted mediocre and was only lukewarm. Lastly, when we got the check and saw how much it costed, we were shocked. We do not intend to go back and we certainly would not recommend it to a friend.

Overall good food and service. The issue I have with the restaurant is the lighting. There are these awful overhead fluorescent lights shining into the dining room, completely ruining the ambiance. The lighting makes you feel like you’re being interrogated. The restaurant seems to have a good attention to detail, you’d think they’d do something about the lighting.

Great Christmas Eve Dinner. The food was great, the service was outstanding, they took my reservation and made contact to confirm. We were seated immediately upon our arrival. We elected the bar area to make our time. My only thought would be that they have chairs with backs on them in the bar area. Some did, just not at our table. Please add more of those chairs, it would have been perfect.

Copperwood Tavern is good ... the food is good as is the service. But it is too expensive for the experience. It feels more like an everyday bar & grill and it is priced like a bistro. When I pay these kind of prices, I expect a different experience.

The food and service was excellent. I had the rabbit and it was cooked to perfection. Service was a bit slow due to large Christmas parties. The server was great and made up for it by offering a complimentary beverage. Wonderful place for date night. Will definitely come back.

This was my first time to Copperwood. I am definitely highly impressed and we are already planning and looking forward to going back again even though it is not super convenient to where we live. There were four of us and each of us loved the food that we got.

We went for Thanksgiving Day dinner. Although the website said they were serving a turkey dinner, the menu we were given had no mention of it. We had to ask the server who was lackadaisical at best. Tiny little corn muffins were served with honey butter- they were cold and reminded me of the children’s food in those play kitchens. They had an extremely limited spirits menu, all of them local. We tried two of them. We ended up sending one back because it tasted terrible. The rice based whisky one I ended up pouring not my coffee and even that didn’t help. We weren’t offered a choice of appetizers- Caesar salads showed up and I deferred mine since I don’t eat salad. Nothing was offered to replace it. The sliced turkey breast was served on top of the crouton stuffing and gravy was already poured over it. It tasted like chicken gravy. Everything was cold, tasteless and dull. A teaspoon ( if that) of cranberry sauce appeared as a bright spot of color on the plate and did that well. No other vegetables were offered either hot or cold. Desserts were the usual from their everyday menu- no pumpkin anything was in evidence. My companions chose the ice cream in a waffle bowl. The ice cream was good. The waffle bowl was soggy and then the consistency of raw batter which they said tasted like bis-quik on the bottom. They ate the ice cream for the most part. I had ordered coffee. It was barely warm and tasted stale.

This was the worst, most insipid and uninspired Thanksgiving Meal I have ever had the misfortune to endure in memory. I have been inspired to go back to cooking my own holiday meals from now on.
