Very disappointed in the Brunch. Food was dry. Catfish tastes like it was old before cooking. Salad was fresh and green. Most dishes on Brunch was Pasta based. Bread pudding very wet. Not what you would expect from a Copelands. For a chain that I enjoy other places, this one is not good. I will stick with "off the menu"... More

as a general rule, copelands are consistent in quality for food and service. restaurant in alexandria is an exception. service is inconsistent, but often poor, and have had dealings with more than one unfriendly manager on site. kitchen is also inconsistent and often poorly done and presented.

We were a group of 8 and the waiter handled everything efficiently. All the food came out together and drinks were replenished when needed. I had a sauced catfish entry with shrimp. It was quite good but skimpy on the shrimp. Everyone seemed to enjoy their entry. The decor is nothing special. They has a good crowd for a Sunday... More

Visting Alexandria briefly husband and I wanted a nice place to have dinner out together. We were not disapointed. The interior is nice with a little upper class atmosphere. This restaurant is appropriate for nicer dress attire but not to formal. Our food was very good. The broccoli appetizer was different and good. Our waitress provided good service. Our food... More

Copeland's advertised their Thanksgiving Buffet from 10 - 6 so we got there about 11;00. We were able to get a seat in the bar area. Went through buffet and several items were "out" and waiters were trying to get them re-filled. Salad and fruit both were empty, no green beans.....and they worst thing was dessert......No regular bread pudding and... More

We have made Copeland's our Thanksgiving tradition now. They serve a buffet full of Cajun meats and standard fare. The variety of food is great! Of course if you don't care for the buffet there is a menu available. We go to Copeland's other times also. I am not capable of eat a full size meal and therefore their tasting... More

Great food, great atmosphere! Personal favorites: Crabcake and Shrimp Alfredo, Eggplant Pirogue, Shrimp and Tasso pasta.... Much of the food is rich, but there are salads available

We were in Alexandria in October and visited here with our family. Our server was fantastic, probably the best we've ever had anywhere. She brought my wife a sample of two types of sauce to see which would be the right seasoned for her and was exceptional the whole time the five of us were there and the food was... More

I visited Copeland's of New Orleans with some friends from work; we found ourselves in Alexandria for some Army training were in the mood for something tasty. The restaurant itself has a great atmosphere! It's dimly lit, romantic, colorful, and casual all at the same time. The servers are incredibly professional, very friendly, and very accommodating. I think there was... More

I go to Copeland's in Shreveport often and love it. The food and service are top rated. I took some out of town guests to the one in Alexandria thinking it would be as nice as the Shreveport location and was disappointed and embarrassed. This was on a Sunday afternoon and there were very few customers. There were no table... More
