Food amazing, great service, and absolutely beautiful inside
Great food, great service. Dining room felt a bit dated, but that is the only negative thing I can possibly say. If you're looking for a classic steakhouse vibe, this is the place.
$15.50 for the same frozen shrimp I could have purchased at Walmart.
Prime Rib was gone by 730.
I ordered the scallops. They were very good. Not $35 good.
Way over priced for the quality of food.
Very good food and service. A welcome alternative to the fast food and pub food offerings all around it.
After being seated we were not attended to by a server for 30 minutes. I had to go to the receptionist and ask for service. This was an embarrassment due to the occasion. Even after requesting it took another 10 minutes before a server responded.
Hi Lawrence, thank you for the review and feedback. We're glad you enjoyed the food while dining with us. We apologize for the inconvenience, as this is not our goal. We will do everything in our power to ensure this never happens again. Please email us if you'd like. Thank you again
Crab cakes were excellant. Service was very good! Would go again
Thank you for the kind words David. We're glad you enjoyed our signature crab cakes, and we hope to see you again soon. Have a wonderful week!
Great filet and prime rib!
Thank you for the review Brooke! We're glad you enjoyed the food, and we look forward to hosting you again soon. Take care
We went there for their specialty of prime rib. My husband's piece had a considerable amount of gristle, but they promptly replaced it when he reported the problem. Otherwise, we had no complaints. The entire meal was delicious, including the sides.
Thank you for the review Diane. It was our pleasure to serve you, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
It has been a bit since we dined at Copper Kettle and were surprised by the prices. Allison was our server and she was great. The lobster bisque and chicken Chesapeake were amazing!!! The potatoes augratin were cold. Overall, a delicious meal and great service but a bit pricey.
Thank you for the feedback Angela. We greatly appreciate it
The food was delicious! My wife had scallops and I had the prime rib.
Thank you for the review Dennis! We're glad you enjoyed everything, and we hope to see you soon.
Food and drinks were about twice the price it should have been for the quality. Service however was excellent. Waiter Dewey was spectacular. I got the “Best old fashioned” which wasn’t anything better than I would have mixed up myself when I’m not a mixologist. It may have had more simple syrup than bourbon. Was mediocre but not necessarily bad. I ordered some oysters as I have been craving recently. Only 2 of the half dozen had any oyster liquor left in them as they were brought out on a plate and had drained. Chicken Chesapeake wasn’t bad if it had been an $15-$20 plate but wasn’t deserving of the $32 price. I’ve had better plates for less….
Thank you for the feedback - we'll be sure to pass the compliment onto Dewey.
Disappointed to see the actual prices were at least $5 higher for each entree than what is listed on the on-line menu.
Thank you for the feedback Joanne. We have made the necessary updates
Prime Rib was excellent as always. Waitress was superb. Love Copper Kettle!
Thank you for the kind words Essee! It's always our pleasure to serve you.
Overall, I think Copper Kettle is overpriced. I know beef costs are high, but the salads and other entrees are overpriced as well. I got a Greek salad that was mostly lettuce. My husbands prime rib (which is the specialty) had fat on it. It was my husband's birthday and we ordered a dessert to share. The server knew it was his birthday, but didn't comp the dessert. Our dinner for 4 was $160 without tip. Two of us had salads, and I had an added crab cake which was good. We each had one drink. I think that is too much to spend for dinner in the Chambersburg area.
Thank you for the feedback Ruth
Chicken and steak over cooked, chicken was white and bland. Broccoli steamed and bland, fries the exact same brand as where I work, double the price for less. Incredibly loud as well. Scallops were good but not worth the money.
Thank you for the feedback John
Fantastic server. Food and coctails very good. My only complaint is that the baked potatoes were cold.
Thank you for the review. We appreciate the feedback, and will ensure this doesn't happen again.
The food and ambience were excellent. I had the crab cakes and they were delicious with lump crab meat and not much fillers and my husband had the Prime Rib and it was cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back and it was worth the hour drive.
Thank you for the generous review. We look forward to seeing you again. Take care
Food was excellent from appetizer through desert. Service was great.

Thank you for the wonderful review Laura! It was truly our pleasure to serve you. Happy Mother's Day to you, and see you soon!
Copper Kettle was awesome as always. The service, food and drink at Copper Kettle never disappoint.
Thank you for the kind words Ron. It was our pleasure to serve you, and we hope to see you again soon. Take care!
It was surprisingly noisy making it difficult to hear the people on the other side of the table. The waitress was friendly, but not formal or professional. We ordered the crab dip as an appetizer, but it was too oily to eat. Three of the people at our table ordered steak, two medium rare and one medium well, all three came out well done. My fiancé ordered the chicken sandwich, but it was mostly fatty and three times the size of the roll. She asked the waitress for fresh onions for on it and the waitress brought out Mayo.
Thank you for the feedback
It was good but lacked the details of a true upscale restaurant, updates need to be made or prices have to come down, food was good but not exceptional
Thank you for the feedback
Great food, and our server Alison was really great!
Thank you for the kind review! We greatly appreciate it
Brandy our server was very good. We have a Room to ourselves so the conversation was just us. The scallops were a little tough. The crab cakes were delicious.
Thank you for the review and feedback Todd. We greatly appreciate it. Have a wonderful weekend
Everything was great our waiter remembered our preferences from prior visits.

Food was just ok for the price -
Service was excellent!
Thank you for the review and feedback Fran. We greatly appreciate it
OUr food was mediocre for the price- We were surprised that the Prime RIb was so tasteless since its their specialty. We found a hair in the tarimasu and the waitress said it was a thread and comped us for the dessert only. It really isnt worth the price, Bistro 71 out classed The Copper Kettel and was less money.
Thank you for the feedback
Copper Kettle more than met my expectations. My first trip there and it won't be my last. Our server was a pleasant, friendly lady who made the visit even more enjoyable. The food was absolutely delicious. All four of us had prime rib and it was perfect. I was more than pleased with the variety of sides available. A very pleasing atmosphere to dine in and all four of us had quite an enjoyable evening.
Thank you for the generous review Judy! We look forward to see you again soon. It was our pleasure serving you :)
All requirements were met and we enjoyed a lovely evening out for a special birthday. The food was delicious and service exceptional.
Thank you for the kind review Irene. We're glad you enjoyed everything, and we hope to see you again soon. Have a lovely day!
The food was amazing! We had a private room because we had a 3 month old and 7 year old. So we didn’t disturb others! Our waitress was very conscientious! Look forward to eating here often!!
You're amazing Mary! We really do enjoy what we do, and we're glad that you enjoyed your time with us as well. Happy Birthday again, and we'll see you soon. Take care
The service was amazing and the food was great. I would absolutely recommend copper kettle.
We're happy you enjoyed your time with us Angel. Thank you for the review, and we hope to see you soon. Have a wonderful week!
Food was wonderful and service was excellent even though it was early afternoon.
Thank you for the generous review Deb. It was our pleasure, and we hope to see you soon! Take care
They put the majority of the customers in one big open room that looked like a bar area. Very very plain. The rooms off of the big bar room were nice and cozy with some ambience.
Thank you for your feedback. We'll be sure to consider this, and be better moving forward.
Salad consisted of lettuce, carrots and a single cherry tomato. Baked potato was overcooked.
Thank you for your feedback Cathy. We'll be sure to consider this, and be better moving forward.
Food was amazing, I personally had a great time. Went out to celebrate my daughter's 10th birthday. Look forward to returning
Had Region Executives in for a visit. Took them to Copper Kettle. There were six of us. They were very impressed. Previously, not sure they thought Chambersburg could produce a top notch restaurant. Now they're believers. If you want to impress someone - THE place to go eat.
Thank you for the kind review Lee! We're glad you and your guests enjoyed everything, and we hope to see you again soon. Have a lovely day
