Copelands on South MacArthur Drive has only the 'C' of Copelands lit in neon, but all else was perfect.. Our waiter was knowledgable and the service was quick Our meal was delicious without a lot of fuss and unnecessary sauces.

You can always count on Copelands for a good meal and this time, the service was excellent as well. That's not always true but this crew gave it their all and kept our table of 20 very happy.

This was our first experience here and our first time eating crawfish and crab claws. It was absolutely amazing and left us wanting more! The staff was friendly and well educated on their menu which helped lead us to the amazing dishes we got! Definitely will come back again if we are in the area.
