This is a great restaurant. Lots of seafood, but also non-seafood items. The food was very fresh and well prepared. A fun place to eat in charming Culpeper, Virginia

Culpeper has some nice restaurants. The Copper Fish is one of them, for sure. It is located in the heart of town and surrounded by boutique stores and restaurants.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch last month. The Bloody Mary I had (garnished with a humongous and delicious shrimp) and the corn and bacon fritters we shared were excellent, and my shrimp po-boy with remoulade genuinely competitive with New Orleans po-boys. The service was friendly and attentive. We'd look forward to coming here for dinner.

The Copper Fish offers daily specials; our favorite is Fish Taco Thursday...it never disappoints! Their wait staff is wonderful, so expect to be taken care of!!! No matter what you order, prepare to be glad you did.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised that Copper Fish offers Happy Hour on Saturdays! We enjoyed the raw oysters, YUM! & the peel & eat shrimp both featured on the Happy Hour menu. Bartenders were great and helpful! We will certainly be back! :)
