Consistently above average

This restaurant has been around for decades but it always delivers high quality food at moderate prices. I have always like the breadth of their menu (including the fact that there is an attached Italian restaurant and you are allowed to order of either menu.)

For 30 years this restaurant has been our go to for a Prime Rib dinner. The Italian side of the restaurant has some excellent dishes however you can no longer order from the Copper Cellar menu so you cannot get Prime Rib here. The Sunday Buffet is something to experience also. Knoxville has many good restaurants however when we are... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment about Copper Cellar. We are very proud of our reputation for being the best steak and seafood restaurant Knoxville.

I have eaten here 3 times in the last year. The first time the overall experience was good but the main dish was just average. I went back to try them again about a month ago and had a great meat with a ribeye being the main dish. Last night I tried the ribeye again and it was a bust.... More

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. I'm very sorry it was not up to your satisfaction. What troubles me most is that a manager did not visit you or made aware of your unsatisfactory steak. We hope to have you back again and please ask for me. More

Perhaps the best test of a restaurant is when you go with a large party. The food is very good, but I got the biggest salad I've ever seen. What's the point of that? For $3 less they could give you something more manageable. I went with a large group, we had 2 waitresses, and neither was friendly. We sat... More

From the first encounter with bread and olives in oil to the appetizer, salad, entrees and dessert, the food was outstanding. Service was also five star. We have just travelled to Philadelphia and West Palm Beach and had not encountered any food that was prepared, presented and enjoyed any more than this beautiful meal! Thanks to the chef and staff...

Thank you very much. The all new Cappuccino's is like no other Italian restaurant in town. Chef Frank Aloise has brought his family recipes in and puts a lot of love in the food he prepares. More

This dimly lite restaurant was a very nice experience for our lunch time gathering of 8 ladies. The food arrived in a timely manner with only a couple of mistakes -(one lady order without feta cheese on her salad, but came with it and another lady ordered the Southwestern salad and received the chicken salad with feta, too.)

Always exception service. Staff that understands the time restrictions on a weekday lunch. The cheeseburgers and chicken salad sandwiches are wonderful. I eat here often and always recommend it to out of town guests.

Every year around the holidays I look forward to eating at Copper Cellar. I choose it for birthdays and other special occasions sometimes too. The food isn't service are always very good. I had prime rib and jumbo shrimp. Everything was good. Our table was ready pretty much at our reservation time on New Years Eve.
