Visiting the town for the day we opted to The Copper Fish as recommended by one of the locals. The first item on the outside sandwich board was Crab Pretzel and the waiter's description sounded good so we went with that of all the varieties of fresh daily seafood choices. We were not disappointed at all!!! The dish was amazing... More

After touring wineries in the Charlottesville area we stopped at the sister restaurant, It's About Thyme (next door) on a Monday night and found the dining room was closed so we ended up instead in The Copper Fish Restaurant. What luck! Although relatively full, we were seated immediately and our waitress showed up shortly thereafter to welcome us. We arrived... More

Four of us tried Copper Fish for dinner while we were visiting the area. We started with calamari, which was perfectly cooked, and a large house salad (shared by 3 of us). Our main courses - the Monday night lobster special, scallops, crab cakes and a flat iron steak - were also very well prepared and generous servings. The side... More

We enjoyed a nice lunch on their Two for Tuesday Special. Buy one appetizer and get the second free! The pita chips and white cheddar spread was amazing! We even bought some to bring home in their shop next door. Mussels were delicious but the seafood stew was just ok. Our waiter was attentive and very personable. Definitely would go... More

We go here at least once a week, and every time, it is an outstanding experience... ALL the staff is very attentive, the food is fresh, prepared perfectly, and come out at all the right times... we also enjoy the wine and drink selections that they have..

After reading all the great reviews about this seafood restaurant, I feel like a party-pooper, but honestly, we did not enjoy our meal. It was pouring so we ducked into this restaurant because it said "pizza" at the window and I was in the mood for pizza. The place was crowded with tables in front of the refrigerated cases of...

Stopped for a quick lunch, beer and wine. Had the Turkey BLT and it was delicious. Came back for a late night drink. Grey goose cosmo was delicious and the crab nachos were as well. Good service and nice atmosphere.

We had the oysters on the Half Shell, Peel and Eat Shrimp, oyster po boy and Fish taco. Everything was very good. I come from New Orleans, and the Oysters were superb. It was one of the better Po Boys I have had outside of New Orleans. But, most the all, the people were great. The service was good and... More
