Post-golf lunch, middle of the week, uncrowded restaurant. Service was slow, waiter seemed preoccupied, drinks took a long time coming, food was COLD. Waiter didn't seem to care. Desk attendant at front of restaurant couldn't be bothered to not text and barely acknowledge our presence while wishing us, "Have a good day." Had he been more attentive, I'd have asked... More

I have been to the Cooperage many times in the past, usually for dinner--this was the first time for lunch. The Prime Rib would be the obvious choice (their specialty) but I ordered the Santa Fe Salmon which is salmon with a very spicy (and tasty) sauce on the side. I also ordered a margarita which was excellent. The bread... More

I used to LOVE the Cooperage. It was our go-to place for special occasions. My husband and I went there for our 20th anniversary. I got steak and enchiladas. I ordered the steak rare (yes! I like them bloody!) and it was med well. Barely pink, somewhat tough. The enchiladas were OK, nothing special. My husband got prime rib, also... More

We decided to eat out on Thanksgiving (first time) and chose the Cooperage. It seemed like a good deal; $20 each at a well known restaurant that took reservations. We were seated within 15 minutes of our appointment and the server was friendly. The food took a long time to arrive (45 minutes from the time we were seated) and... More

The Cooperage was always a great place with a great salad bar. Unfortunately,our last couple of visits were a mess of rude staff and less than mediocre food. I really like to support locally owned businesses,but will never return.

I took my daughter-in-law and two grandchildren at noon one day and although she and I only had the salad bar, it took an hour to get the children's meals! They kept saying it was on it's way...on and on! I should have gotten up and left!
