Service is friendly and relatively fast. Food is decent pub fare. Beer selection is fantastic, with occassional superstars like Coronado Stoopid Stout, which is very hard to find around here.

Winning is next to impossible. Host gives points to his friends. Categories are constantly the same.

Food is average alcohol prices are high.

Service is good. Seating is limited

When in downtown Wilmington, head over to the Copper Penny for some great American bar food and an extensive array of beers both bottled and on tap. Have been going here for a number of years and have never been disappointed. The menu is fairly extensive and has several vegetarian options. The fish & chips and nachos are long time favorites. The beer selection is quite impressive and features a number of local and regional craft brewers. They have numerous specials so be sure to check the website to see what deals are to be had.

After walking around downtown and seeing the plethora of what appeared to be mediocre options, my husband and I stopped at this bar after reading reviews of the food. Neither of us would consider ourselves "Bar People" but we are so happy that we chose to take a chance on Copper Penny! Once we walked in we felt at ease as the atmosphere was friendly and inviting; other families and couples were eating and drinking. We were quickly attended to with a smile and the drink and food menu had many affordable and delicious options. We ordered a Mediterranean wrap and a jalepeno burger. The dishes were great and the sides were even better...fries were crisp and well seasoned, asian cole slaw was delicious, as was the pasta salad. Overall, one of our favorite bars/restaurants and we would go back Wilmington just for this place!

Awesome bar. Decor was great with lots of older advertisement signs for beers. Service was good and so was the food. The coleslaw was very unique, but good. Our food got to our table incredibly fast and it was fresh and hot. You need to try the bread pudding if you go.
