The food was delicious! My wife had scallops and I had the prime rib.
Thank you for the review Dennis! We're glad you enjoyed everything, and we hope to see you soon.
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….
Thank you for the feedback - we'll be sure to pass the compliment onto Dewey.
Disappointed to see the actual prices were at least $5 higher for each entree than what is listed on the on-line menu.
Thank you for the feedback Joanne. We have made the necessary updates
Prime Rib was excellent as always. Waitress was superb. Love Copper Kettle!
Thank you for the kind words Essee! It's always our pleasure to serve you.
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.
Thank you for the feedback Ruth
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.
Thank you for the feedback John
Fantastic server. Food and coctails very good. My only complaint is that the baked potatoes were cold.
Thank you for the review. We appreciate the feedback, and will ensure this doesn't happen again.
The food and ambience were excellent. I had the crab cakes and they were delicious with lump crab meat and not much fillers and my husband had the Prime Rib and it was cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back and it was worth the hour drive.
Thank you for the generous review. We look forward to seeing you again. Take care
Food was excellent from appetizer through desert. Service was great.

Thank you for the kind words Ron. It was our pleasure to serve you, and we hope to see you again soon. Take care!
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.
Thank you for the feedback
It was good but lacked the details of a true upscale restaurant, updates need to be made or prices have to come down, food was good but not exceptional
Thank you for the feedback
Great food, and our server Alison was really great!
Thank you for the kind review! We greatly appreciate it
Brandy our server was very good. We have a Room to ourselves so the conversation was just us. The scallops were a little tough. The crab cakes were delicious.
Thank you for the review and feedback Todd. We greatly appreciate it. Have a wonderful weekend
Everything was great our waiter remembered our preferences from prior visits.
We're glad you enjoyed your dinner at the Copper Kettle Roberta. It was our pleasure, and we hope to see you soon. Thank you for the kind review as well. Take care
Lobster bisque is amazing. Great service. Very timely. Perfect anniversary dinner.
Thank you for the generous words Janelle! We're glad we could make your anniversary special, and we hope to see you again soon. Have a wonderful day :)
Food was just ok for the price -
Service was excellent!
Thank you for the review and feedback Fran. We greatly appreciate it
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.
Thank you for the feedback
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.
Thank you for the generous review Judy! We look forward to see you again soon. It was our pleasure serving you :)
All requirements were met and we enjoyed a lovely evening out for a special birthday. The food was delicious and service exceptional.
Thank you for the kind review Irene. We're glad you enjoyed everything, and we hope to see you again soon. Have a lovely day!
The food was amazing! We had a private room because we had a 3 month old and 7 year old. So we didn’t disturb others! Our waitress was very conscientious! Look forward to eating here often!!
You're amazing Mary! We really do enjoy what we do, and we're glad that you enjoyed your time with us as well. Happy Birthday again, and we'll see you soon. Take care
The service was amazing and the food was great. I would absolutely recommend copper kettle.
We're happy you enjoyed your time with us Angel. Thank you for the review, and we hope to see you soon. Have a wonderful week!
Food was wonderful and service was excellent even though it was early afternoon.
Thank you for the generous review Deb. It was our pleasure, and we hope to see you soon! Take care
They put the majority of the customers in one big open room that looked like a bar area. Very very plain. The rooms off of the big bar room were nice and cozy with some ambience.
Thank you for your feedback. We'll be sure to consider this, and be better moving forward.
Salad consisted of lettuce, carrots and a single cherry tomato. Baked potato was overcooked.
Thank you for your feedback Cathy. We'll be sure to consider this, and be better moving forward.
Food was amazing, I personally had a great time. Went out to celebrate my daughter's 10th birthday. Look forward to returning
Had Region Executives in for a visit. Took them to Copper Kettle. There were six of us. They were very impressed. Previously, not sure they thought Chambersburg could produce a top notch restaurant. Now they're believers. If you want to impress someone - THE place to go eat.
Thank you for the kind review Lee! We're glad you and your guests enjoyed everything, and we hope to see you again soon. Have a lovely day
Fabulous food, excellent service, and amazing overall!
Thank you for the feedback Amy. It was our pleasure and we hope to see you again soon! Take care
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.
Thank you for the feedback Robert. We hold ourselves to a high standard, and hope to execute if you choose to dine with us again.
As good as I remember from years ago. Prime rib did not disappoint and staff was kind and attentive.
Thank you for the feedback Brynn. It was our pleasure and we hope to see you again soon! Take care
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.
Thank you for the feedback Jennifer. We hold ourselves to a high standard, and hope to execute if you choose to dine with us again.
Service was awesome. Food was too expensive for the quality. I had a New York strip that had more fat and gristle than edible meat. And I ordered it medium and it was awful rare. Sent it back twice to get it done properly.
Thank you for the feedback Michael. We hold ourselves to a high standard, and hope to execute if you choose to dine with us again.
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.
Thank you for the feedback. We hold ourselves to a high standard, and hope to execute if you choose to dine with us again.
Food was good but the table they sat us at was not in a booth or in the restaurant area so we felt like we were sitting in the hallway. People were standing right next to our table and talking loud and one of them worked there. I thought it was rude. Paid too much for what the experience was...
Thank you for your feedback. We will certainly work to get better, and provide our guests a top-notch experience.
The food was delicious and the waitress very attentive. We had a great evening as always.
Thank you for the generous review! We hope to see you soon. Take care
The food was excellent, it was very quiet and enjoyable!
Thank you for the kind review Grace! We're glad you enjoyed your time with us :)
We enjoyed everything we ordered and the waitress was amazing! The only thing I would want differently is less sauce on the Chicken Chesapeake. Other than that everything was perfect.
Thank you for the review Sarah! We'll be sure to take the feedback into consideration. Have a wonderful day, and see you soon :)
