Good food descent service.

The food was good. Really enjoyed the salad bar and appetizers. Our waiter seemed like he had a lot going on but he was trying. I would recommend this for a steak or just a really good salad bar. Dining was casual and the prices were reasonable but not cheap. I will probably go back,

Who says you can't travel back in time? The Cooperage recalls a time when "dining out" meant a visit to a wood-paneled, dark room full of ample-size customers demolishing large, tasty beefsteaks. Forget the rest of the menu, the Cooperage is about prime rib and steaks. Large, prepared to precisely your ordered doneness, and tasty, Cooperage beef is some of... More

My family and I love eating here when we are in town. Cooperage has a great salad bar and steaks! Often times they have a band playing. It isn't like a chain restaurant nor is it fancy and blingy, but good food and good service! We have been coming here for about 20 years and always have a good experience!

We "found" this restaurant when our car needed service at the Kia dealership, and it took an extended amount of time for repairs. The Cooperage is immediately adjacent to this car dealer. Our first visit was to the bar in the afternoon, as we found out they did not open for dinner until 5:00 pm. The bartender, Matthew, was friendly... More

I have Cancer and have been given 6 months to live. Today was my Husbands Birthday the last Birthday we will spend together.

One thing I like in this restaurant is you get to make your own salad and you can have as many as you can eat. Soup is superb! Unique seating... and food menu is great!

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
