Good pub food
We went to the copper grassroots Sunday night dinner after three days in Manchester. The service is very good, the servers are super casually dressed which is fine. It cost more than our five star dinner at the Silver Fork which was a slightly shocking and the same wine we had at the Silver Fork was $25 more expensive per bottle. Some thing they might want to consider… Otherwise super great casual atmosphere and lovely setting.
Felt a bit rushed throughout our meal; we were seated at 8:30 (when our reservation was), and were told by the hostess that all guests needed to be out by 10pm due to state ordinance. Our waitress told us this multiple times and then as we went through our meal asked about dessert and final drinks before we'd finished eating. We still left by 9:30, but just felt a bit like we were being hurried out, despite plenty of other people still being in the restaurant when we left.
On behalf of the management team, we deeply apologize for our less than tactful communication regarding the state mandates. This will be addressed with our front of house team on how to gracefully address these mandates. Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us!
Great waitress, excellent drinks, incredible food! Will return and stay at the taconic!
A casual/chic restaurant that is both comfortable and sophisticated. We enjoyed delicious food and wonderful service. We also felt that the restaurant is doing an exemplary job in keeping their guests safe during the pandemic. Highly recommend.
Delicious food and ambiance! Some of the best i've seen in southern VT.
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us at The Copper Grouse. We look forward to hosting you in the near future soon.

Easter brunch, not busy, quiet actually. Staff was attentive. Drinks and food were great and we spent less than expected.
It was our pleasure to host you at The Copper Grouse for Easter Brunch. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future!
Had a wonderful Anniversary dinner. Food was great and service was even better!

We had our favorite waiter John ...
we never stay in Manchester without a dinner or 2 at the copper grouse
The cocktails are always different and amazing
We had a great app , 2 adults and 2 kids- all left very happy and full
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us at The Copper Grouse. We will be sure to share your kind words with John.
Food and service were wonderful! Aiden our server was on the ball and had a great disposition :)
Thank you for the wonderful review regarding your dining experience at The Copper Grouse. We will share the kind words with Aiden!
We were looking forward the Copper Grouse, the decor was very nice, the service hospitable and the food (lunch) even though a limited menu, the burgers were super. The unfortunate part was the final bill. For 2 small salads, 2 burgers and a few cocktails, we were stunned by a $300+ bill!!!
We asked for clarity as there must have been a mistake, only to be angered when we were told our afternoon cocktail order had been billed as 2 drinks in 1. We had asked for a splash of St. Germain to be added to our Tequila/Lime mix, and without being informed, the restaurant practically charged us a full drink for that splash that went into each cocktail. We are from NYC and know all too well how pricey cocktails can be...but this is no city bar/lounge and a $30 drink where ever you go is an OUTRAGEOUS & OFFENSIVE "RIP-OFF".
We will never go back! Save your aggravation and go to the "Silver Fork" or "The Reluctant Panther", those were wonderful and even though pricey, the ambiance was nicer, food great, and both were $100 less for dinner for two.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We apologize for the miscommunication on our end regarding the price of cocktails, our prices are indeed on our menu and sounds like we will provide additional training to our staff.
My first experience at the Copper Grouse left me feeling underwhelmed. The service itself was just okay - I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt and believe we caught them on an off night. The ambience was pleasant enough and it is probably even more inviting when the outdoor porch is open for dining. The food was average and some dishes seemed to have a little too much going on (i.e. Halibut). The drinks and entrees were extremely overpriced for the quality and, combined with the average service, did not feel it was worth the money.
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us, we deeply apologize for the inconveniences of that evening. Reviews such as yours provide an opportunity to provide additional training to our staff, we will share your comments regarding price and the quality that night to our culinary team. We look forward to host you again in the near future to show you that we are better than what you experienced.
Amazing experience great atmosphere would recommend
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us at The Copper Grouse!
service and atmosphere were great, food was decent, however we felt that less was more as far as ingredients and presentation, purple potato puree was not appetizing, neither was the rye in the cabbage for corned beef, these foods can shine on their own, don't try to over power them. otherwise a decent meal
Thank you for providing feedback regarding your dining experience at The Copper Grouse. We will your review with our culinary team. We look forward to hosting you in the near future!
Server was excellent. Hostess was intrusive several times telling us our table was only available til 8:30 due to another reservation. Turned out they didn’t show. So she said???Great setting/vibe. Food was good but all items were over priced for the quality and quantity.
Thank you for providing feedback regarding your dining experience with us. Reviews such as yours provides us an opportunity to provide additional training to our staff.
The food was fantastic and service was great. I would definitely be going back the next time I come to Manchester.
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us at The Copper Grouse!
Made a reservation for 5:30 called to tell them that we are running late made it there 5:45 to be told that we could only stay at the table 89 mins from the original reservation. Service was just ok. The price was ridiculous. Don’t waste your time or money. Too bad they just don’t get it
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us, we apologize for the inconvenience during your stay with us. Reviews such as yours, allows us to provide additional training to our staff on how to handle these specific situations more delicately.
Food and server were excellent.
Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone.
We appreciate your review, and sharing you dining experience with us at The Copper Grouse.
Food was good/solid but not noteworthy. There wasn’t much to differentiate this from other dining experiences and found to food perhaps a touch bland. My short ribs were very soft but the barbecue seemed like it came from a bottle - without accents of anything interesting. So the food was good but not at the price point.
We appreciate your comments regarding your dining experience, as we will share your comments with our team since we are always looking to be better!
Begins with excellent service. Ends with a pretty good dining experience albeit slightly on the expensive side.
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us at The Copper Grouse, as we will share you comments with our team.
love this place for lunch, dinner or a drink at the bar. Nice staff and great decor and ambiance
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us at The Copper Grouse!
Modern but comfortable , great food, great ambiance ......
Thank you for providing feedback regarding your dining experience at The Copper Grouse!
The food was not great. The clam chowder had too much pork so it tasted like bacon chowder. The crab legs were over cooked and dry. The seafood bowl was ok. The food was way overpriced for the quality. The waitress was fantastic and it’s a beautiful place to go and have drinks. I would go elsewhere for food.
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us, we greatly appreciate the feedback regarding the food as we will share this with our team.
Had a great meal with great service, had apps and entree all food was prepared wonderfully with great flavor combinations. Service was fast and efficient. Specialty cocktails were also very delicious. Great experience, it is a bit pricey but definitely worth it.
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us at the Copper Grouse. We look forward to hosting you soon!
Loved the salmon. Delicous flavors. Really nice waitstaff.
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us!
The Copper grouse was a wonderful experience. Started with the cheese board as we were quite hungry from a day of skiing. Followed by a Winter Green salad and then the seafood rice bowl. My husband had the salmon. My husband and I shared the starters. Everything we were served was absolutely delicious. We enjoyed our meal with draught porters. We had the bread pudding for dessert, again a share, which was the perfect ending. Our server was very attentive. The ambiance is lovely. Although we did not stay in the Taconic hotel, where the restaurant is located, we like what we saw and definitely plan to stay there in the future. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us! We will share your review with our team, as it is much appreciative! Our staff looks forward to hosting you in the near future!
The server jose was amazing ... and very attentive
Thank you! We will be sure to share the kind words with our server Jose.
Love the atmosphere here and food overall is very good, cocktails are great. I got the Wagyu burger and probably wouldn't recommend this over the regular burger for the price, but that may just be a preference.
Thank you for sharing you dining experience with us at The Copper Grouse. We look forward to hosting you soon!
We celebrated a special birthday at the Copper Grouse. Meal, service, atmosphere was phenomenal and exceeded all expectations!
We are thrilled to share your birthday experience with us. Thank you for providing valuable feedback regarding your night with us!
It makes sense that this restaurant has fallen from top ranked to #13. We come to Vermont frequently and used to love this restaurant. Not any more. I will never return. We went this evening and had terrible food. The poke bowl had unripe avocados. The scallops were off and their delicious skillet baked Mac and cheese had been reduced to the equivalent of boxed Annie’s. This is in the adult menu — not the kids menu! We sent back the $15 gross Mac and cheese because it was inedible. No one asked if we’d like anything else or if they could do anything for us. Instead they charged us for it and then the manager fought with us about taking the charge off the bill. Yes - actually fought with us. Not only is their food sub par but their customer service is terrible. There are many great restaurants in the area who are happy to serve. Apparently customer service and satisfaction doesn’t matter to the Copper Grouse. We will take our business elsewhere and suggest you do the same if you care about how you are treated.
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us, we apologize for any inconvenience you may had during your stay with us. Reviews such as yours provides a wonderful opportunity for additional training for our staff, as we will share your concerns with our culinary team.
Very streamlined process for a busy holiday weekend and felt very safe at hotel/resturant.
The menu is excellent; our server has been there for awhile and that is a marker for me. We sat down and things were in motion with drinks, appetizers and dinners served perfectly. Food was hot and delicious. Can't wait to return. High top table was great.
Thank you for sharing you dining experience with us. It was our utmost pleasure as we look forward to hosting you again in the near future at The Copper Grouse.
Perfect brunch spot and very COVID safe!
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us. We take great pride in assuring our guests safety during these times.

We appreciate the kind words regarding your dining experience at The Copper Grouse. Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us!
So the hostess was busy for 10 mins With a Take out order large so good for them but then proceeded to tell us we were late and lost 10 mins of our strict covid time slot
No smile no personality looked bored.. Waited outside the door politely with others
Told to Finish the drinks provided at front desk happy hour and then come back before the surly comments above
You can’t win !
Whatever happened to good evening. j hi how are you....how was your trip driving in the snow for 4 hours to stay with us for 330 per night with a resort fee for self parking !

Thank you sharing you dining experience with us at The Copper Grouse. We look forward to hosting you soon!
Seated us 25 minutes after reservation. And we arrived an hour early to see if they could get us in early.
Server was great.
Portions were ok - not large but not tiny either.
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us, we will share with our team.
From the menu, website and reviews, and price points we thought this would be an excellent spot to enjoy valentines day dinner. We booked an 8:30 PM seating thinking we could take our time after the big rush from 6-7, we were wrong. VT law states you must be cleared out of the restaurant by 10 pm on the dot. We were incredibly rushed to the point it was not enjoyable, overall the service was fine. We also were met inside with screaming children which is fine but don't advertise yourself as swanky. The noise level was moderate because the room is wide open so everyone is looking at each other rather then dividing the room up with nooks or false walls. The food was very good. Quality was on point. The drink creations were nice as well. Food was ok but they should discount their prices by 10-15% until their ambiance can be brought up to par.
We appreciate the feedback regarding your dining experience. Valentine's day and President's Week typically is a very busy holiday in Manchester, VT. We apologize that we could not provided you the desired dining experience with numerous families present in the restaurant. The 10pm mandate has been in effect for a few months now, and we will provide additional training to our staff to make that more clear. We hope to see you in the future when we return to normal! Thank you.
