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... read 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!!

Staying nearby at the Courtyard by Marriott, Copeland's was recommended when I asked about local foods for dinner. It's a very nice, even somewhat elegant place. I ate at the bar, and the nice lady bartender served my seafood platter and craft beers quickly, perfectly, and with a smile each time. Glad I came by.

We were driving thru Alexandria heading to a chain rest. Saw the Copeland's and made a quick decision to go there. And a good decision it was! Service was just right. Food choices were "something for everyone" and we all got different. I had an appetizer of crab stuffed beignets in a remoulade sauce (wonderful) and a salad with a... More

I was really hoping to get some great local food. This was NOT the place. I'd say it's on par with a mediocre chain like Applebees, but twice the price. Very disappointed. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Not their fault the food is terrible and overpriced.

I have visited this location numerous times, both at lunch and dinner. There is always something that just doesn't go correctly. Last visit, no sweetener presented with tea. No soup spoon presented with soup. The waiters consistently have trouble serving their entire section at one time, instead being able to handle one table at a time. Any good waiter knows... More
