I have always enjoyed Copelands in Columbia, MD, that is until tonight. This used to be the best place to go for cajun or creole food, however, my opinion is they have cut their portions down on their appetizers and entrees to control their food cost. I had three complaints tonight about their food, the appetizer (cajun gumbo ya ya) had very little else in the bowl but the rioux base. Second complaint was the portion size of my shrimp etoufee was skimpy and shouldn't be for what they charge per dish. My fiance ordered a steak dish, and that dish had a very small amount of steak in it. Honestly, I spoke to the manager about it, she comped me a couple of items for the complaints that I had, which was very nice of her. Folks, if your the kind of person that feels you should receive a fair amount of food for what your charged, then I wouldn't go to Copelands. It is a shame too, I used to really enjoy going there for dinner, can't say that I would go back anytime soon or advise anyone to go there until they change their mind on portion control and give the customer what they pay for!!!!
