“Just stopped for drinks”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

My wife and I stopped in for a few drinks and were pleased to find a friendly atmosphere. We did not have any food, but the food did look appetizing. Maybe next time we are in town we will stop for a bite. This is one of the better places for drinks or food in Monterey. It had a few of the local guys talking gold, which I found to be quite entertaining. All in all the place had a great atmosphere and friendly people. If you are knocking around town definitely make this one of your stops. My wife and I did and really had a good time. The drinks were great too.

“Great Fish and Chips”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Enjoyed Fish and Chips and French Dip. Friendly pub atmosphere quick attentive service. Food was a little above average and price was comparable for the location. Add a little extra umpfs to the atmosphere so it feels more like a restaurant and not just a bar serving food.

“Fine for a few beers”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

We did not eat in Coopers but had some drinks there having left another bar where the service and cleanliness was abysmal. Coopers has a decent selection of beers and cocktails, service was very good but the place seems a bit tired and could do with a make over. In a good central location.Was not particularly busy on a Saturday night but got the feeling they could do a lot more with this place as they have the basics right

“Pub food, I hear the fish and chips are good...”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Overall it wasn't a bad experience, but nothing I would brag about. All the places in the area cater to tourist, and rightly so. My meal was ok, better with ketchup, BUT the family next to me were regulars, or so I gathered, raved about the fish and chips. Perhaps next time I'll give it a shot. Again, not bad, sure go ahead, it's pub food.

“Awesome Place”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

Walked all day up and down cannery row, shopping and just enjoying Monterey. Love to just walk and enjoyed the people and shops. Close to 5pm tired and hungry need a cold beer and good food. Stop in front of Coopers and asked my wife Lori, pub sound good she said yes. Love the place great food, awesome cold beer and staff rocks. We will be back
