Service was most excellent, top notch. Mostly clean and nice atmosphere. We did have fly bugging us. We expected food taste to jump way out with the high prices. Flavor did not do that. The garlic broccoli was weak. Not wow'd with the food. Wife's shrimp meal was light on the number of shrimp for over $40 a plate.

Crab Au Gratin was etremely bland! Worst I have ever ate. Chicken/pasta dish was very dry and the portion was enough to easily feed two. My wife and I were really looking forward to our first meal at the Copper Kettle in over forty years (just returned to the area) and were sadly disappointed.

Was in town with my wife for a weekend away. Glad we made the decision to go here. To start we had a great waiter, Dewey. He was fantastic. We would go back when in town again, just to see him! The food was great, from the appetizers to the entrees. Some of the reviews said this place was a little pricey. What they didn't mention is the portion sizes. They serve good size portions. We were really surprised. I would higly recommend, giving this place a try to see what you think.

The atmosphere and waitress were great! With that being said, the prime rib was also good, but not great. There was not crusting on the outside as I would expect for the price. Also the haddock had a spice on it that tasted like black licorice, very odd flavor for this dish. The chef explained it to be a blackened seasoning, which was in broiled food. Our experience was not bad, please do not think that. We’ve had a variety of food and this was not one we would return for. Thank you for your time

It was my husbands birthday and he wanted Prime Rib. Our reservation was for 7:30 and when the waitress first came to our table she said that they were “almost out of prime rib”. By the time she came back to take our order she said they no longer had any. My husband was very disappointed as we came here specifically for that. He ordered Filet instead. I ordered salmon and two sides. It took quite a while for our food to come but once it did she didn’t bring my baked potato. It took her quite awhile to get back and she said they were out of baked potatoes. By this time I had been eating the rest of my food so she told me that I could have another side so I ordered rice. It wasn’t great but I was able to mix it in with my vegetables. The salmon was only so-so and my husbands steak was over cooked. This was the third time we came here and it was definitely not the charm! Not sure if we’ll go back. It was an expensive dinner to be so bad. Not worth the money.

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.
