My husband and I loved every bite! The food was beautifully prepared and presented, service was terrific. Everything from the chips to the shrimp risotto to the calamari was well seasoned and interesting. We will be back.

We have been going to the copper canyon since they were in their original location across the street, many years ago. We have never been disappointed. We have our favorites the salsa, guacamole, southwestern salad, the incredible steak n fries, fish tacos, shrimp risotto, and more!! Love the original margarita! Terrific waiters and bartenders n great music. We usually sit... More

Copper Canyon has been a staple for years, originally starting in a small spot across the street. This is definitely not typical Mexican food but a great fusion that combines many of the truest Mexican spices with a new flare such as tuna carpaccio. The tequila bar is awesome too. Don't miss the spicy salad , fish tacos or crab... More

Having visited this restaurant several times I can tell how a lot of people would be unsure what to expect and a little confused as to what to order. You don't need a sophisticated palate or world-class knowledge of cuisine to enjoy yourself in this place. All you need is an open mind and the ability to listen to what... More

We were delighted to find this restaurant attached to the Blue Bay Inn and loved the food and delicious margaritas!

High priced for mediocre. Better and more authentic TeX/Mex at chilangos which is nearby. Friendlier crowd there too. Won't be back.

My hunny and I go to Copper Canyon about once a month and usually sit at the bar. It has a nice cozy feel and the service is always good. We enjoy the margaritas and on occasion we try a flight of tequila - very nice and smooth. Their salsa is delish and has a great roasted, smoky flavor. I... More

Been here many times. I always find it loud and the service is really uneven with inexperienced servers. The food is good and seems fresh, but the last time we were there we asked for the guacamole to be left off the dish and were told that the chef wouldn't do that. Strange. We won't be returning.

Enjoyed our night here for our 20th anniversary. Great chips, salsa and guacamole. Loved my chicken fajitas. My husband said his risotto was very good as well. Margarita was the best I have ever had!
