Seafood center!

We went there for a business lunch and found it to be a perfect spot for a very different lunch experience. The seafood options and other choices were many and varied but all appeared to be of first class quality. I tried the smoked Salmon paninni - it was a perfect size for lunch and came with a... read more

Copper Fish has a great happy hour with half price Oysters and Shrimp. You can't beat it. If they have their rooftop deck open, be sure to sit out there - it's a little oasis that is just wonderful. Overall the food and service will not disappoint. A great place to eat, drink and enjoy.

My husband and I had a terrific lunch at this darling restaurant in downtown Culpeper. The fish tacos were incredibly fresh and tasty, and our waitress, Brittney, could not have been better. Looks like a fun place for happy hour too!

A group of girlfriends visited Culpeper this week and we had a great lunch at The Copper Fish. We all had the house salad and their house made vinaigrette was delicious! We didn't see pizza on the menu and asked and they brought a pizza menu. We ordered a gluten free pizza and a regular pizza and both were stellar!... More

I really like the decor, staff ver friendly. The food is just okay, though. The calamari had no flavor and the accompanying sauce tasted like it was just ground up red pepper...no seasoning. While the steamed shrimp tasted great, they were not deveined. Since they tout themselves as a seafood restaurant, the fact that the shrimp were not deveined gives... More

We were looking for seafood. This little place really has it all. Appetizers: we selected oysters on the half-shell and steamed shrimp cocktails. The oysters were three varieties and very good. The shrimps were large, crisp and sooo well flavored. Their special bloody mary was fantastic and garnished not only with the usual veggies, but a u-15 tiger shrimp which... More

After an incredible experience at Its About Thyme, I wanted some fish. The same group owns Copper Fish. I should have known. All that I said about the former restaurant applies here, but think fish. The case holding the meals is right nearby and you see the care with which they hold their catch. I had the sea scallops which... More
