TripAdvisor reviewers did not disappoint! This place was awesome! We found this place on TripAdvisor and noted the high #number so stopped for lunch. It was very busy on a Saturday afternoon at 1:30pm. It's a very small place, only seats about 40, but luckily someone was leaving just was we walked in. The waitress was very fun and friendly. For an appetizer, we had the egg roll special: an egg roll stuffed with brisket burnt ends and rice. What a great flavor combination! I had the Meatloaf burger which was also great. This was not your grandma's meatloaf sandwich. Again the flavor was awesome! They had a nice, small selection or craft beers. The waitress commented that they were more of a cocktail bar. The prices were completely reasonable and it was a great overall experience! Highly recommend!

We dined here because we were getting tired of our usual dining spots. I was researching different restaurants and came across Coopers and it was definitely worth trying. We will be dining there again when in the area. We had the meatloaf sandwich and the rigatoni and they were both amazing!!

SMALL restaurant with a short menu. But everything is good! This is some great upscale comfort food at reasonable prices. Full bar, also with reasonable prices.

This is a great local restaurant in the historic Valley Junction shopping area. I've just recently discovered it - and so glad I did! It is very small and cozy and has wonderful food! Would highly recommend!

Had the Cajun Meatloaf. The meatloaf had a nice sweet glaze on it, but the meat itself was almost chewy. Tough texture. The Creamy Parmesan salad dressing was good, as was the mashed potatoes and the roll. Best part of the meal was the beef with barley soup. Drinks were a little weak.
