Waitresses ans staff are everything you could ask for. Pete the Manager is so in the weeds he is going to have a hearattack. Food took 2 hours. Served at 20 to 30 minute intervals. I ordered the steak they brought the wrong one at...2hours. Talked to Pete the Manager All he told me is that he has more problems than I can imagine. Warning Do not eat here but the entertainment and wait staff are great. If your an investor in this place you need to pay attention to this.More

In all fairness, there was a recent power outage and this restaurant had an abbreviated menu on the day of our visit. However, what they served was unacceptable. The broccoli was literally rotten—with black streaks and spots. The cherry tomatoes were rancid. I sent my...salad back untouched, as well as the broccoli. The server acknowledged the deficiencies and apologized but then brought us a bill for the full amount. Will never ever return!More

I have been to Coppers twice in the last 2 months, both times on a Friday Night when the outdoor live entertainment was underway. They do an awesome job outside, the bar is humming, the egg grills are cookin, and the music is better than...average. The first visit we just observed the outside activity, did not eat or drink. We stayed about an hour. Our second visit was just last Friday when we were anticipating sitting outside to have a light dinner. Well, the place was rocking, lots of customers (rarely any with a mask on) the outside was quite busy, too. We decided to order food to take home. It took nearly 30 min to get fish tacos and lobster beignets. It was given to me in a nicely packed bag, I paid and we left, still amazed that we only saw one other couple with masks on. Most of the staff had masks on - a couple of them had the mask down. The place is nicely maintained, clean and organized. There was plenty of staff to serve the crowd that night. One manager though. I could not see a second supervisor that would have been helpful given the crowd. Overall, the food was delicious! We will certainly have those two items again. Our server was very helpful and informative, she was clearly a longer term employee in a good way. Good job Chris and Keith, keep doing the right things right, make sure you respond to those who expressed dissatisfaction, its a moment of truth, to deal with them and turn them around. Customer and the income are too important to ignore what they are saying.More

I had beef tips. It was the special with two sides and dessert. Food was ok, service was great. All the waitresses work masks and glvs. The tables were socially distanced.

Food was fairly good but service was super slow. 4 tables with customers, 3 waiters, and still had to sit for extended periods of time waiting to order food,for refills, and waited a long time to just get the check. I could understand if it...was a busy night but that was def not the case.More

We had lunch here after golf. Fast service and very good food. Courteous wait staff. Fried catfish was very good. Salads were very fresh and the beer was cold. They have special events on the weekend outside. They have live music some days and big...screen TV for football games.More

We are locals and try to support our local businesses, but not Copper's. We stopped by for dinner. Ordered shrimp and grits and hamburger steak. Hamburger steak had no seasoning, and tasteless potatoes. Did not eat much of it. Shrimp and grits....could not eat. Grits...were flaky, like crumbled cornbread. Huge lumps of grits, Larger than the spoon they thought I could eat it with. Shrimp were transparent. Sauce was pasty and nasty. Could not eat. One entree was comped. Won't be going back. If the Still Waters residents are required to spend a set amount in the restaurant and pro shop, I would certainly demand a huge change. So sad. It could be such a wonderful place.More

The venue is beautiful and the food was really good. There is a variety of items on the menu. The outdoor space is perfect. The stage and bar area are set up for a good time. Live music is nice.

When arriving at the time it opened,used bathroom the garbage is full and no toilet paper. Getting food there’s no utensils for biscuits or other items. Hard to move in the hallway as people are trying to pass and the food line is there. Seems...they were not prepared. Sat outside and spiderwebs and bugs on windowsill by our table. Food was good and had great waitress.More
