Lobster bisque is amazing. Great service. Very timely. Perfect anniversary dinner.
Thank you for the generous words Janelle! We're glad we could make your anniversary special, and we hope to see you again soon. Have a wonderful day :)
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.
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.
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
Fabulous food, excellent service, and amazing overall!
Thank you for the feedback Amy. It was our pleasure and we hope to see you again soon! Take care
Forget this place as far as Fine Dining experience. The female hostess is improperly dressed in mens white long sleeve dress shirt and black boots ridiculous! no decor on the walls. The prices are at $3 more off menu than what is on web site and the food quality is not worth the extra high price. Not going again and spending almost $100 for 3 people with no beverages included.
Thank you for the feedback Robert. We hold ourselves to a high standard, and hope to execute if you choose to dine with us again.
As good as I remember from years ago. Prime rib did not disappoint and staff was kind and attentive.
Thank you for the feedback Brynn. It was our pleasure and we hope to see you again soon! Take care
Booked a table for two after seeing many good reviews. I was hoping to have a nice reasonably upscale dinner with my better half. What we got was a poor to average experience.
Service was ok, food quality barely mediocre, food presentation was horrible.
Glass of house red wine was a $7 glass out of a $10 bottle. On a positive the old fashion bourbon drink was very good.
We both chose the prime rib after reading reviews and the menu description- we were both seriously disappointed. Hughe piece of meat with no flavor slapped on a cheap plate.
Atmosphere - if I was paying $15 a plate I would say the atmosphere was ok but when the average menu price per plate is closer to $30 I strongly disagree. I expected more and was disappointed.
Bottom line if you are looking for an overpriced dinner in a casual atmosphere this is your place. If you are looking for an upscale experience go somewhere else.
Thank you for the feedback Jennifer. We hold ourselves to a high standard, and hope to execute if you choose to dine with us again.
Service was awesome. Food was too expensive for the quality. I had a New York strip that had more fat and gristle than edible meat. And I ordered it medium and it was awful rare. Sent it back twice to get it done properly.
Thank you for the feedback Michael. We hold ourselves to a high standard, and hope to execute if you choose to dine with us again.
Several times now we have found this to be less than the "fine" dining it is purported to be. The food is good, for sure, but the overall "classiness" you might expect is lacking. In comparison to other similar establishments, it ranks only somewhere in the middle.
Thank you for the feedback. We hold ourselves to a high standard, and hope to execute if you choose to dine with us again.
Food was good but the table they sat us at was not in a booth or in the restaurant area so we felt like we were sitting in the hallway. People were standing right next to our table and talking loud and one of them worked there. I thought it was rude. Paid too much for what the experience was...
Thank you for your feedback. We will certainly work to get better, and provide our guests a top-notch experience.
The food was delicious and the waitress very attentive. We had a great evening as always.
Thank you for the generous review! We hope to see you soon. Take care
We enjoyed everything we ordered and the waitress was amazing! The only thing I would want differently is less sauce on the Chicken Chesapeake. Other than that everything was perfect.
Thank you for the review Sarah! We'll be sure to take the feedback into consideration. Have a wonderful day, and see you soon :)
The food was excellent, it was very quiet and enjoyable!
Thank you for the kind review Grace! We're glad you enjoyed your time with us :)
The food was delicious, the service was excellent and friendly
Thank you for the kind words! We aim high, and we're glad you enjoyed your dinner with us. We hope to see you again soon
We had no problems. We were even say early which was very nice with an eight year old.
Thanks for the review Mike! We're glad you enjoyed yourself. We do everything we can to please our guests, and we look forward to seeing you again in the future. Take care
The evening was very nice. the server was very nice and attentive. She made suggestions and was knowledgeable. The food was excellent. Nice ambiance, however I would have preferred a table on Valentine's Day located away from a doorway. Not a very romantic setting, I am sure you understand. The restaurant wasn't packed , so we could have been accommodated. They should have put more thought into the holiday setting. I would recommend this restaurant because the pluses outweigh the minuses.
Thank you for your feedback Robert. We're glad you enjoyed your dinner with us, and we look forward to being better every single day. We hope to see you again soon. Have a wonderful day
Great food! Very good service! Would recommend to anyone!
We're glad you enjoyed everything Christina! We look forward to seeing you again soon. Take Care
Meal was very good, however we missed the good rolls they used to serve. Nothing special about the rear dining area. No pictures on the walls or decorations of any kind.
Thank you for the feedback, we greatly appreciate it. We will work to ensure you and all of our guests have a better experience going forward.
Early Valentine’s dinner
We're glad you enjoyed your dinner :) We hope to see you again soon! Take Care
Excellent food and service! We will be going back again!
Thank you for the kind review! We look forward to hosting you again soon. Take care :)
We decided to come because of the Tripadvisor rating, and the prospect of great prime rib. Although the place was hardly occupied, the staff produced a wonderful meal of delicious rare, and medium-well cooked meat. Service was wonderful, and prices were very fair. The wine and beer prices were exceptionally reasonable. I pray that this pandemic subsides so these people can go back to the larger crowds that helped build their reputation.
You're the best John! Thank you for the review, and we hope to see you again soon. Take care
Very nice. I do wish I would have asked for spot by fire place
Thanks for the review William! We'll be sure to have that fireplace table ready for you next time. Take care!
First time very impressed excited to come back for another date night.
Thank you for the kind words. We can't wait to host you again!
My birthday dinner with my wife. Absolutely amazing once again. Great food & service. Highly recommend Copper Kettle
Thank you for the kinds words! Happy Birthday again, and we hope to see you soon. Take care!
First time there...fantastic food and desserts. Service was wonderful and not crammed at all. The prime rib was the best I've ever had!! Would highly recommend for a special evening.
We're glad you enjoyed your time with us Carla! Thank you for the glowing review, and have a wonderful day. See you soon :)
Wonderful as usual. Great staff and great food!
I have been doing extra volunteering work and decide to reward myself with a relaxing, enjoyable dinner. The Copper Kettle provided such an evening. Brandy's service was the best along with her smiles and laughter. And topped off with great food. A perfect reward.
Thank you for your kind words Bobo! We will be sure to pass the compliment onto Brandy, and we hope to see you soon. Take care
We really enjoyed our dinner last night, which was Veterans Day. We tried the snapper soup, which was very tasty and a nice option that you don't see on every menu out there. We also had the crab stuffed mushrooms, which were excellent. Both of us got prime rib with Greek salad as a side. The prime rib was cooked perfectly and delicious. I will say just a tiny bit over salted on the au jus, but I loved the presentation and the horseradish. My baked potato was a bit boring and served with butter and sour cream packets on the side. My husband's au gratin potatoes were really good. A few little notes, the service highlight was Billy, the assistant manager. He made our experience very good in the service department and we really enjoyed the opportunity to chat with him for a minute or two. Without him, service wouldn't have been as good. My salad came out with no dressing, which was quickly rectified, and we ordered tiramisu for dessert and got pumpkin cheesecake, but it smelled great so we ate it anyway, and we weren't disappointed. We will definitely be back because of the attention to detail and the freshness and quality of our meal. We are looking forward to our next visit.
Thank you for the kind words! It was our pleasure to serve you, and we look forward to hosting you again soon. Be sure to keep an eye out on Instagram and Facebook for our wine updates :)
First time and everything was awesome
Thank you for the kind words! We hope to see you soon. It was our pleasure
wonderfull place for prime rib. Try to go every Wednesday for their prime rib special. My wife always gets the crab imperial ( she says to die for). Always ask for their server Duey. He's the best. He really cares about his customers. I will continue to come back every Wednesday for some time.
Thank you for the kind words John! It's our pleasure to serve you. We look forward to seeing you soon. Take Care
We had the prime rib dinner that was delicious!!! Cooked perfectly. We were seated right away and the hostess brought us silverware and water and said our waitress would be right over.................25 minutes later!!!!!!! Service was terrible!! Our reservation was at 6pm, when our dinners were FINALLY brought to our table..... it was going on 7pm!!!!!!!! We did have the crab dip with fried tortillas, it was not tasty at all! I absolutely love a good prime rib, but I’ll go somewhere else next time to get one!! Plus, the rugs were dirty going down the hallway, and we sat in a booth near the bar and that bar definitely needed an updated look🙁🙁
