Wow! ...'nuff said.

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!

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.

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.

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 attentive. For a starter we had crab nachos which were excellent.... More

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
