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

Recently we stopped off for an early dinner while in Culpeper and decided to try out the Copper Fish. Having previously tried and been happy with ‘It’s About Thyme’, being the same owners, we thought OK should be alright… WOW! That was really an understatement - it was very good! Not having checked online reviewers at all prior to visiting,... More

Were out walking around and stumbled upon this place so we popped in for dinner. The service was spectacular, very attentive, reminded me of a 5 star restaurant. I had the fish and chips, which were ok. I felt as though the type of fish they used that day wasn't the best choice. Wife had crab cakes, and they were... More

OMG! Do not tell anyone about this fabulous little secret in Downtown Culpper! The oysters were AMAZING, the shrimp were gigantic, and the crab cakes were to DIE for! We even were able to make a reservation at the best table in the house! Made it to happy hour, drinks were a steal! Met some wonderful people and loved the... More

The seafood happy hour is one of the best deals around. The food is terrific and so is the staff. Extremely friendly and accommodating. If you are in the area and trying to decide where to eat, you can't go wrong here.
