Food and service is always first rate. The firecracker shrimp Mac n cheese is my fav, but the black and blu salad is good too. The service is really good, you won’t sit waiting for someone to address your needs.

I can almost see this restaurant from my house so I don't have to travel far to get there. We love Copper River! It is an Alaskan themed eatery with terrific salmon, salads, burgers, and artisan pizzas. Try the Mother-in-Law burger. You'll never forget it....More

Went here for the first time after driving past it almost daily for several years. We were not disappointed! The food was great and a very good value. Nice atmosphere and well kept in and out.

Visiting my daughter at Asbury University in nearby Wilmore, we settled on Copper River Grill, and I was very pleased with the burger I ordered. Not at all under-sized, as with all good burgers, I needed to cut it in half to handle it, and...More

Their house salad and dressing is SO good and it comes with a warm croissant. I had the Teriyaki salmon which was moist and flavorful. The steak was cooked properly and was very tender. The decor of the restaurant is very nice and the service...More

I visited for a late weeknight dinner. I did not want a lot to eat so I tried the Cajun BBQ salmon sandwich and a side salad. Salmon was billed as having a kick, e. g. Spicy but it was not. Served medium well when...More
