At Copperwood Tavern, we aim to give our customers an enjoyable and memorable dining experience. We chose to be a Farm-to-Table restaurant because it represents the freshest product available.
We take pride in offering the freshest quality dishes by serving locally sourced meats, seafood, and produce. We are supporting the local farmers and economy and it's our passion to teach people how much better fresh and natural food can be.
Copperwood Tavern not only offers 20 draft beers, 30 small-batch whiskeys and a superb wine selection, its 30-foot craft bar is also stocked with southern Virginia's white whiskey. Yes, we mean moonshine!

Copperwood Tavern Ratings and Reviews

My husband and I stopped by for the first time for a much-needed afternoon together before a movie. We enjoyed our time there and everyone was friendly. The popcorn was to die for and my husband remarked he would have loved some to enjoy at home. This was the first time he enjoyed popcorn that was not dripping in butter. We will definitely be back!

Very cool space. We were very happy when we walked in. We were there for brunch. I ordered the duck deviled eggs -- $8. They sounded great. The "duck" aspect of them was a sprinkling of shredded duck confit(?) on each egg. There were four -- no problem -- it's an appetizer. There was a half piece of really good bacon with each egg. It was ok, not great. Not enough duck. My wife ordered a breakfast sandwich and asked for egg to be cooked over easy -- it came over hard. We have had this problem a LOT lately in too many restaurants. If you can't cook an egg properly, you shouldn't be in the kitchen. Basics. I ordered the chicken and waffles. It came with very little syrup -- I don't like a lot, but it was pretty dry. It was good, but a suggestion would be to put some on the waffle and provide a ramekin with extra. A busser got a little extra for me. We paid somewhere around $50 for the meal and it was just less than good. Frustrating.

The birthday card you send me with the certificate inside made me notice how much you value your customers. I have NEVER had a restaurant do this for me. This was very special. When I came in for New Years eve brunch the food was fabulous. The homemade Marshmallow on my specialized coffee drink was impressive. I especially like the crab benedict, as I do not eat pork.
I love the beautiful hand stencil dogs on the wall, the re-purposing of the great things all over the restaurant. The thought out sink at least in the ladies room, I love this, no dripping all over the sink top , we women hate our purses getting wet from people not wiping up after they wash.
The friendliness of the staff, easy to make a reservation online and the reminder also. The beginning cup of popcorn with your "special seasoning" was so unique when you sit down, better then a basket of bread. The french toast sticks, so if you have a taste for the sweet, but also want eggs. It satisfies the craving, then your not trying to decide between the two. Love drinking out of the mason jars, reminds me of the country. Overall experience is a 10, posting pictures to my page for my friends locally. See you all soon!!

Pre-theater New Years Eve. No mention of pre-fixe menu at booking but not really a surprise considering the night. Good value on the pre-fixe. Paid the corkage and brought an expensive wine with us but their list looked good. Had to send both entrees back for extra cooking but to be fair we asked for medium rare and every place measures that differently -- we'll gauge it better next time. Both dishes were returned quickly cooked a little more and were very good.

Oddly enough I'd never heard of this place but needed to find a restaurant near Signature Theater for dinner before the musical the evening of Dec. 23rd. I had also left it to the last minute for reservations but was able to snag a table at 6:00 p.m. Very cool interior, quite contemporary. I wish I could remember the name of our server; he was great! I think he had a beard? He helped us decipher the impressive locally sourced farm-to-table menu. Cocktails were amazing and creative without being overwhelming. Our server was spot on with suggestions for pairing wines with the main course. The food was as good as the reviews I'd read before deciding to make reservations. The fried green tomatoes and the fried goat cheese w/speck and arugula were both delicious. They prepared my trout as requested, no salt. My daughter's duck breast was cooked to perfection and the sauces seasoned perfectly. I can't remember what we had for dessert, not because it was forgettable, simply I just can't remember but I know it was delicious too. Highly recommend this Shirlington gem!

We were a group of six and the waiter didn't mind giving us separate checks. The food was delicious. One of the group ordered the mushroom bruschetta and asked the waiter for a softer bread, saying she couldn't bite into the hard bread, and not only did he bring new bread, but he also took the item off her bill. The wine by the glass is way too expensive at $10 a pop. We go out after matinee at Signature, and would definitely go back to Copperwood.

The experience was fantastic - great restaurant. We went for brunch and the menu was great. The only minor issue we had was that I asked the server a specific question about a dish and his answer was wrong. I trusted his answer and ordered the dish, but likely would not have ordered it if I had correct info. Even so, the dish and the overall experience were excellent.

We had theatre tickets and had a reservation for 6:45. We were told to wait as we were early and finally got seated after 7PM making it rather tight for getting to the theatre at 8. They were clearly overbooked. They did expedite the food and we did get out on time but it was a bit tense. We would go back again though.

The food was outstanding. The venison meatballs, duck breast, and rabbit were all mouth-watering. The service was magnificent: attentive but not cloying, accommodating and pleasant. The noise from tables that were too close with large groups made the occasion of a date stifling.

I went with my family for brunch. Had to wait 30 minutes past the reservation time to get a table. That was a first for me since using open table. Once seated, it was nice to have the popcorn as a snack while we waited for our food. The food was delicious and I highly recommend the brussel sprouts!

We have really enjoyed Copperwood for both dinner and brunch but Sunday was an exception. We were one of the first ones in and still waited for our food a fairly long time and when it came out, my eggs were barely warm and runny for scrambled. My husband didn't get his bacon but that was quickly remedied by our very nice server. Coffee was also on the weak side. And - I cannot do gluten so was a little irritated that I had to pay an extra $1 to get fruit to replace my toast/bread. Hoping all is up to par this weekend when a group of friends are assembling for lunch here at my suggestion.

The overall experience was decent. Rather than being greeted I was stared at for a few moments as though she was confused as to why I was there. Rather than asking how many in your party, I was asked may I help you - duh I'm here to dine. The waiter was nice. The food was meh... breakfast/brunch is better than the dinner menu in my opinion. Won't go back for dinner but definitely breakfast/brunch.
