Cajun Food, in Alex

Great food. Eggplant Pirogue®, Cajun Crawfish Pasta and Crawfish Etouffée is what we ordered. Somehow we were miss understood and had Shrimp Etouffée. It was all wonderful real Cajun food. I have the Pirogue great tasting loved the fried eggplant nicely spiced. Will stop again at any Copeland's... read more

We had given up on this restaurant about a year ago, but tried it once again last weekend since our favorite restaurant was closed for the holiday. A year ago, our main complaint was the cleanliness, and it seems that there has been no improvement. There is a saying that if the restrooms are dirty, then the kitchen would be... More

Not sure what is going on with this chain but they are not what they say they are. We waited over 15 minutes to even be asked how many we were as the person who welcomes diners was preoccupied with other things. The service is bad. Waitress kept on getting our drinks order wrong even though we ordered just sweet... More

EVERYONE KNOWS...you won't get the best of any restaurant on a holiday and we waited nearly an hour to be seated. Mama's not cookin'!!! That being said, they did a nice job of serving our group of 6, with 3 vegetarians accommodated nicely. We had one order misunderstood, wanted fried bow ties and got boiled, it happens and it was...

Let's just say I have always enjoyed the delicious food at Copeland's, however, our recent visit was very lacking in service. We arrived on a Friday at 1:30 PM-not rush lunch time or anything. There were maybe 3 other couples in the entire restaurant. Our waitress took forever to wait on us and we had to beg for refills, took... More

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 beans and rice and... 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
