Fine food and atmosphere

Visited restaurant with wife and teenage son for dinner at recommendation of the B&B owner and weren't disappointed, for the most part. Restaurant is part of the attractive down town of Culpeper. It was busy on an early Friday evening though we were seated immediately. Service was friendly and... read more

Small, locally owned and operated restaurant on the main street in Culpepper Va. Sister and I just picked it randomly while we were in Culpepper for a couple of hours and were DELIGHTED with the food, atmosphere, and service. I got curry clam chowder and caesar salad with fried oysters...the soup was a little salty but very tasty with lots... More

My sister and I were just strolling around Culpeper looking at the shops and also a place to have lunch. One very popular restaurant was WAY too noisy. We ambled by the Copper Fish and two ladies exiting said it was delicious, so we went in. A nice, serene setting and excellent service too. Not only is it a restaurant,... More

Came at this location for a casual meeting, and we had the salmon and rock fish and it was pretty disappointing. Small tables and crowded seating areas. Wouldn't recommend.

A group of us went to The Copper Fish for dinner, based on the reviews. We were not disappointed! We requested a table, we only waited long enough to order a drink before a table was clear. The menu was well laid out, I ordered steamed mussels for us all to share. When they arrived there were only two pieces... More

The atmosphere in here was quaint. the restaurant is in an old downtown store that's been around for decades with modifications. The selection was good and the specials were reasonable. The offerings were splendid and at first, I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to order. It all was fresh. It was quite filling, too. Our first waiter... More

Beautiful sunny day, very cozy cafe-style eats in the outdoors cafe seating. It was easy to find, easy to get to, and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly.

We ate a late lunch mid-week and the place was not busy. We had excellent, attentive, professional service. All very well trained staff. We came in looking for pizza, but their lunch menu drew us in. The mixed garden salad was very good - ordered with blue cheese instead of vinegarette. The seafood chowder was creamy and beautifully presented (see... More
