“Good Food and Lively”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2011

We had a nice dinner in a fun atmosphere. There's a good variety of entrees on the menu and generous portions. Also, there is a range of beers on-tap. The staff was very nice and helpful.

“Very good Pub Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2010

Ate here for the first time tonight and my husband and I were very pleased. He had the Pub Burger and fries and it was excellent. I had the turkey club which was delicious also. Good salads and soups also. Very friendly, efficient service. Nice, pub atmosphere. Mostly filled wih younger people but we felt very comfortable and at home. Saw a couple of families with kids also.

“Upscale bar-food eatery, and very popular with the locals!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2009

We ate here 3 times while we were in town for a week in March, and had great food every time. They have great salads and sandwiches, and tons of beer choices! The servings are large, and the wait staff are all freindly and attentive to your needs.

“AMAZING salads and excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2009

WE LOVE the Copper Penny. Whenever we are downtown at lunch time we eat here. The CP has a pub-like atmosphere and It is always busy during lunch. The food is excellent. The salads are fresh and crisp. Not to mention HUGE! I have never been disappointed here. Even though it is always busy, service is excellent and friendly. Try the chilli! It is made with shredded beef . I guarantee you will have leftovers no matter what you order! They also have a full bar. Parking deck by the library is a block away so its only a short walk and no driving around in circles looking for a spot.
