Want some true Louisiana style cooking with some Cajun blends, then this is the place! Great food every time I've visit, especially the crawfish bread. Plenty to choose from, good prices on drinks especially during happy hour. I'll be back!

From Mobile, AL...we used to have a Copelands and it was always pretty good. So when we were in Kenner for a preflight night we chose this one that was fairly close to our hotel. 5:30 pm on a Friday and the restaurant was pretty packed but we were seated immediately. Waiter was very nice and good at his job.... More

Try the eggplant pirogue. Their signature dish. I'm a meat and potatoes guy and I loved it. Friendly staff.

I entertained a client for dinner November 9th. The service was forgetful and inattentive. There were only 3 of us and we had to flag down other waiters because our waitress did not return, was not around after taking our order. Then my $30 steak was overdone and not very hot anymore. I think it sat too long after cooking.... More

I ate here for Sunday Brunch. The waitress, Victoria, was very friendly and helpful and efficient. I had an omelette w shrimp and cheese grits which was excellent. The $2 mimosas were not bad either. My food was so good that I returned for the late evening happy hour specials. My husband & I had several appetizers and were pleased... More

The food was awful, cold and my spouses dish came out without any shrimp. The server andrily came back with 6 small shrimp in a plastic cup after he had finished his meal. Our Copelands in Nashville closed and I can see why.

Classic NO food and some variations on classics. All Louisiana based gourmet. It's been an institution here since i was a kid and they're still going strong. Try the red hot potato's as a side. The crab claw app is simply amazing.

We order from Copeland's often. Usually to go. The food is always delicious. This past time there were a few disappointing aspects though. First of all we waited about 15 minutes in the to go spot for our food to be brought out. We should have checked our orders in the car but didn't. Our fault. When we got home... More

Great food and great atmosphere for the business lunch bunch. Lots of business deals going on at the lunch time, not suitable for the average family at lunch time.

Excellent value for quality and food portions. All Copelands locations are top notch. I suggest the veal Copeland, and the steaks rival any steakhouse in town for a much better price AND it comes with sides. Literally have never had a bad meal here and have been here probably more than every other restaurant.
