Food and drinks were about twice the price it should have been for the quality. Service however was excellent. Waiter Dewey was spectacular. I got the “Best old fashioned” which wasn’t anything better than I would have mixed up myself when I’m not a mixologist. It may have had more simple syrup than bourbon. Was mediocre but not necessarily bad. I ordered some oysters as I have been craving recently. Only 2 of the half dozen had any oyster liquor left in them as they were brought out on a plate and had drained. Chicken Chesapeake wasn’t bad if it had been an $15-$20 plate but wasn’t deserving of the $32 price. I’ve had better plates for less….

Overall, I think Copper Kettle is overpriced. I know beef costs are high, but the salads and other entrees are overpriced as well. I got a Greek salad that was mostly lettuce. My husbands prime rib (which is the specialty) had fat on it. It was my husband's birthday and we ordered a dessert to share. The server knew it was his birthday, but didn't comp the dessert. Our dinner for 4 was $160 without tip. Two of us had salads, and I had an added crab cake which was good. We each had one drink. I think that is too much to spend for dinner in the Chambersburg area.

Chicken and steak over cooked, chicken was white and bland. Broccoli steamed and bland, fries the exact same brand as where I work, double the price for less. Incredibly loud as well. Scallops were good but not worth the money.

It was surprisingly noisy making it difficult to hear the people on the other side of the table. The waitress was friendly, but not formal or professional. We ordered the crab dip as an appetizer, but it was too oily to eat. Three of the people at our table ordered steak, two medium rare and one medium well, all three came out well done. My fiancé ordered the chicken sandwich, but it was mostly fatty and three times the size of the roll. She asked the waitress for fresh onions for on it and the waitress brought out Mayo.

OUr food was mediocre for the price- We were surprised that the Prime RIb was so tasteless since its their specialty. We found a hair in the tarimasu and the waitress said it was a thread and comped us for the dessert only. It really isnt worth the price, Bistro 71 out classed The Copper Kettel and was less money.

DISAPPOINTED!!!

Copper Kettle more than met my expectations. My first trip there and it won't be my last. Our server was a pleasant, friendly lady who made the visit even more enjoyable. The food was absolutely delicious. All four of us had prime rib and it was perfect. I was more than pleased with the variety of sides available. A very pleasing atmosphere to dine in and all four of us had quite an enjoyable evening.

Forget this place as far as Fine Dining experience. The female hostess is improperly dressed in mens white long sleeve dress shirt and black boots ridiculous! no decor on the walls. The prices are at $3 more off menu than what is on web site and the food quality is not worth the extra high price. Not going again and spending almost $100 for 3 people with no beverages included.

Booked a table for two after seeing many good reviews. I was hoping to have a nice reasonably upscale dinner with my better half. What we got was a poor to average experience.

Service was ok, food quality barely mediocre, food presentation was horrible.

Glass of house red wine was a $7 glass out of a $10 bottle. On a positive the old fashion bourbon drink was very good.

We both chose the prime rib after reading reviews and the menu description- we were both seriously disappointed. Hughe piece of meat with no flavor slapped on a cheap plate.

Atmosphere - if I was paying $15 a plate I would say the atmosphere was ok but when the average menu price per plate is closer to $30 I strongly disagree. I expected more and was disappointed.

Bottom line if you are looking for an overpriced dinner in a casual atmosphere this is your place. If you are looking for an upscale experience go somewhere else.

Several times now we have found this to be less than the "fine" dining it is purported to be. The food is good, for sure, but the overall "classiness" you might expect is lacking. In comparison to other similar establishments, it ranks only somewhere in the middle.
