Had been awhile since we ha been here. Our last visit was very good and was glad to learn that had not changed. Service was excellent. Waitress was attentive but not overbearing.

My party of 3 adults and 1 teen and 1 tween all enjoyed the food and was absolutely nothing to complain about. The desserts are sinful they were so good. The service was top notch. Great decor but it was rather noisy but this is on the patrons not the restaurant .

Not a bad place for dinner considering Nicholasville has so little to offer. Wide variety to choose from on the menu and the bar is a plus. Food is average but not bad.

This place has a nice atmosphere, family friendly. Service is good. Food is good. The salad is of good size, you get more than a few small pieces of lettuce. The ribs are delicious.

Had a wonderful stop at Copper River Grille. Excellent and courteous service. The food there is great. They were also extremely helpful in my purchasing some gift cards for Boss's Day.
