“Downtown dining at its best!”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Whats not to like? The staff is fast and friendly, the food is top-notch, the prices aren't bad and it's all set in a great pub atmosphere. Ask about their lunch card if you're going to be in town for awhile. If not, do yourself a favor and get a cup of the potato soup.

“Loved the Copper Pennhy”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Had lunch at the Copper Penny. The Philly Phanatic Cheesesteak was great and with lots of fries. Great sports bar with an obvious "Philly" theme. Large portions and lots of beer selections too. Pricing was very reasonable for the amount of food. Service was very attentive and friendly. I will most definitely return to the Penny again next time in Wilmington.

“Nice Philly Cheesesteak”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

If you are a sports fan & love a great Philly, this is the place for you. Small restaurant with sports themed decor. It's a very loud, crowded place with a bit of a wait.
