“Can't go wrong with Copper Penny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Everything here is good. Great spot to grab lunch on a work day, a beer after work or dinner on a date. The beer selection and daily specials are solid and the food is amazing.

“YUMM”

One of the best in Wilmington!!! Love it here. This is an Eagles (Philadelphia) bar - but the food is excellent.

“Fantastic pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

The Copper Penny is our go-to pub in downtown Wilmington. We have eaten here every year when we visit - 3 years running. They have a good beer menu and some great pub grub. The chicken sandwiches are great as is the black bean burger. The fries are really tasty and the asian slaw (served with every sandwich) is very good. It will continue to be our tradition every time we visit Wilmington.

“Best Pub Grub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Hands down the best pub grub in Wilmington period. Not a lot of staff turnover they end up knowing you after awhile. It's always busy and I wouldn't have it any other way. Meateast and tastiest wings in Wilmington.
