Well worth the visit

The restaurant is clean and well-managed. The staff are pleasant and knowledgeable. I had the salad with grilled chicken, which was tasty and enough to be filling.

Was taken here during a business trip by my hosts. The first impression was not very good. The entrance and reception was like walking into a Denny's. The restaurant itself is in sad shape with worn out carpets, old scratched dark oak furniture. There were patrons around the bar that looked like they just got off a factory shift in... More

We've been visiting this restaurant for 35+ years since it opened and have enjoyed our meals each time we were there. Tonight was a fiasco. They were out of the fried cauliflower appetizer (a staple at this restaurant), had a server with no personality nor compassion for answering questions or making this a pleasant experience for our party of 7...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your experience. I apologize for not meeting your satisfaction during dinner. My biggest concern is that a manager didn't visit your table so we could have made your dinner more pleasant. There have been numerous changes to our facility including a remodel and sometimes the changes take so me... More

We read in the New Sentinel that Copper Cellar was open on Christmas and decided to try them for dinner. They only offered a buffet and it was a feast. Prime rib, turkey, shrimp, a multitude of vegetables and deserts were served. I would like to thank the entire staff for giving their time on Christmas to provide a delicious... More

Our friends, my husband and I went back to Cappuccino tonight. We had visited back in summer as a larger group. That night the service was so bad we left. Tonight we stayed. The server had little to no knowledge of the menu. She tried to argue with my husband over his shrimp skewer appetizer. Finally she realized it was... More

The buffet is $20 per person. The photo of the prime rib is what prime rib should look like. Instead it was slice very, very thin and folded over. The crab soup was overpowered by the sherry. We were unable to eat it. Many of the other courses were cheap, macaroni (several dishes), salads. Nothing outstanding by any means. The... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience. I'm very sorry you didn't feel the buffet was a great value. The picture you were referring to is a prime rib entrée offered on our dinner menu and is a flagship dish we are most famous for. We do slice it thin on the buffet to allow for... More

My husband and I were visiting Knoxville from Georgia, looking for a brunch spot that wasn't a chain while waiting for the nearby mall to open. We took the packed parking lot as a good sign and looked at previous comments on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. We chose to sit at the bar and had a great experience... More

For years this restaurant has been the "Gold Standard" of top Knoxville dining! The steaks are the best! Fried cauliflower is a MUST! Top wine selection!

Dinner was extremely good for all four people in my party! The filet(s) were cooked to perfection, halibut was very tasty, and Prime Rib was the best I have ever tasted. Our server was very accommodating and attentive to our needs. The only aspect that needs to improve is the music which was too loud and was disco, certainly not... More

So I used to eat at this restaurant on a regular basis. I have spent a lot of money with all of the copper cellar restaurants. After my experience today, it will be my last. They are open from 10:00am to 10:00pm. I divided to dine there for a late lunch. There were not many customers dining at the restaurant... More
