Louisiana Cooking, Fabulously Presented

There was a terrific Buffet for Easter, but we decided to order from the menu and were not disappointing. I had the Ricochet Catfish, which is advertised as lightly breaded and it is so. The light coating sealed in the juicy fish within and this dish is topped with crispy onions, I think. I had red... read more

My first visit to Copelands in Alexandria was not the best but my second one was much better. We did have a long wait but that is to be expected when you go on Sunday around noon. We had a nice quite table this time and the service and food was excellent. We had the crab cake pasta and it... More

My partner and I met a friend here one day, as we were passing through Alexandria. We met up at CCB and all got different meals... One friend shared some of my Étouffée; it was delicious! Though, before I made it past the city limits, I started puking my guts up - all of it was the Étouffée! My partner... More

Menu contains many Southern items that this New Orleans themed chain restaurant is known for. Small plate pecan crusted catfish was good although the meuniere sauce serving size was skimpy. My wife had the crab-stuffed eggplant and said the stuffing was excellent while the eggplant was extremely undercooked. The entree was served on a bed of linguine topped with a... More

I was on business on this trip and ate at the bar but, having eaten at several Copelands, I must say that this one had slower service and the bartenders were not as friendly as at other establishments. The food was OK but maybe I just ordered the wrong thing. I'll probably eat there again as it was obviously popular... More

The food was delicious as usual. I had the Ricochet Catfish, one of my favorites. The corn and crab bisque is a must try.

I love the food at Copelands. Everything I've ever eaten was yummy!! My favorite thing on the menu is the egg plant special dish over angel hair pasta. I can't recall the name of it but it is AMAZING!!
