Best cheese steak I've had since leaving Philly. The roll was part of the reason. But be careful when you order...fried onions were actually crispy breaded onions on the sandwich (??). Ask for sauteed onions. It comes with green peppers and mushrooms unless you tell...More

We eat here every time we visit. We had the buffalo and honey chipotle wings. They are always delicious. Our waitress was wonderful and talked to my daughter about her volleyball tournament.

Get there early! This restaurant is a local favorite. Even at 11:30 am the place is packed. Their food is tasty and the menu has offerings for carnivores and vegetarians alike. Really enjoyed our meal!

Restaurant in a cool older building. Lots of local flare. Ordered the spinach artichoke dip. Was disappointed since it was very creamy with little spinach and artichoke. Servings were large and many patrons were taking doggy bags home. We split some sandwiches with a $1.99...More

Stopped here for lunch before heading to the beach for a couple of days. I had the black and bleu burger with onion rings and my wife had the hot roasted pork sandwich with fries. The onion rings were the best I’ve had in a...More

Copper Penny excels at just what you hope it is when you walk in. The atmosphere puts a smile on your face, tempered by nervous expectations. But rest assured; well-crafted drinks, good food, and great service are exactly why you should make you're way to...More

Copper Penny is a mixed bag. We’re from out of town, and we ate here because we’d heard they had been on DD&D. First, the restaurant is really loud, which is fine if that’s your thing. We all ordered old-fashioneds, and that was the worst...More
