Really yummy! The veggie burgers are a homemade patty! It is so rare to find that in any restaurant. So often I feel like the veggie patty option on menus is just an appeasement. Sure we'll keep some frozen,gmo veggie burgers in the back of the freezer in case we get one of those weird veggie eaters. This patty was... More

Full properly formatted review on my blog Yin's Beige Box. Omakase Sushi at Zipang in Calgary, the chocolate cake at Q Haute Cuisine also in Calgary, and the fried cheese curds at Copper Kettle in Dubuque. What these foods have in common is that they are some of the best things I have ever tasted in my life. I have... More

Been here a few times, seem like it is always busy, but they find seat seat for you every time! Food is great, beer is Ice cold, and the service is great! It is off the main drag so you have to look for it! Will go back again!

Meet some family here for a Sunday lunch. The place was very busy which is a good sign. A nice selection on the menus with something for everyone. All 5 of us enjoyed our meals and the service was very good considering there were only 2 young women working the tables. They were non stop and very pleasant.

We lived in Dubuque for a little over four years and unfortunately for us, didn't discover this restaurant until about 3 years into our work assignment. Since discovering it, it's become a main stay for us to visit whenever we go back to Dubuque to visit friends. The selection is better than 'bar food' but not as high-end (or nearly... More

We were in Dubuque for a concert and stopped by Copper Kettle for lunch. We had the fried pickle and zucchini appetizer served with a yummy curry dip. Then a burger and BLT for lunch. Upgraded to the truffle fires, and was happy I did! Couple of cold beers and we called it good! Prompt and pleasant service as well!

Enjoyed the Pork Tenderloin special. It came on a bed of baked cauliflower and was served with the Truffle Fries. These are THE BEST FRIES that I have ever tasted.....Sat at the bar and service was excellent. 2nd time here and will be back.
