“Relaxing Meals”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

We have eaten at the Copper Kettle many times and really like the place. It's charming, comfortable, and very relaxing. The meals are very tasty and the ingredients are very fresh, including the seafood. If you're looking for a good lunch (soups and sandwiches are great) or dinner (crab cakes are good) in a comfortable setting then the Copper Kettle is a great place. The staff is very friendly and service is great.

Thank you for the nice review. As a family run business, the pleasure is all ours in learning that our guests have enjoyed dining with us. During these incredibly cold days, many of our patrons have enjoyed their meals near the fireplace. We invite you to do the same and look forward to seeing you again soon.

“One of Chambersburg's Best Restaurants”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We consider ourselves pretty good judges of eating establishments. Copper Kettle is one of our regular stops and we think they have some of the best food in town. The casual dining in the lounge area is our favorite. Whether you are looking for a complete meal, or just a sandwich, you won't be disappointed.

“Very disappointing...”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Had dinner tonight at the Copper Kettle. Atmosphere with a burning fireplace on a cold night was great. Waitress was very attentive. Unfortunately the food was lousy. The prime rib was absolutely tasteless, not to mention tough and lukewarm. I can't imagine that it was freshly carved - the Copper Kettle used to have outstanding prime rib as a signature dish. No longer. Very disappointing.

The feedback from our guests is very important to us. Please accept our sincere apology for your recent experience at the Copper Kettle. Our management and staff take every measure to create a welcoming and pleasant dining experience. Being known as the "House of Prime Rib," we would like to assure you, and the TripAdvisor community, that this is certainly not representative of a typical dining experience at the Copper Kettle. We sincerely hope you will allow us the opportunity to serve you yet again so we may demonstrate the quality of food and service we are known for.

“A Favorite”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The staff at the Copper Kettle are delightful. The crab cakes are some of the best I have ever eaten and the bartenders are top notch. I always visit the Copper Kettle when I am in town. I would say it is the best restaurant in Chambersburg bar none! Well Done!

“A Food Gem in Chambersburg”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

As a life-long resident of Chambersburg, I have had numerous lunches and dinners at the Copper Kettle. I have never been disappointed in the quality of food or dedication to fine service. Some of my favorites include turtle soup, lobster bisque, and delicious salads and crab wraps. Oh yes, I can't resist a side of sweet potato fries! The prime rib is definitely outstanding with sides that are expertly prepared. If you have a small group of maybe 8 to 12, rooms are available - just reserve ahead. Prices are reasonable for the quality and service provided.
