The service was amazing today. Nelson (a waiter in training) was knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. It was a pleasure to have him as our waiter.

Only complaint is that web menu and restaurant menu both said they still had their great crab cakes, but they actually took them off menu and dont have them now or for the near future, and waiter also did not advise when going over menu. Was one of the reasons we went there, so was VERY disappointing. Otherwise, as superb as always.

Mediocre dining experience. I ordered the rotisserie chicken, which is their specialty. It is served with jus, which is necessary. Without it, it would have been unbearably dry. The service was fantastic. The dessert was… incredible. Homemade key lime pie that is noticeably homemade. Crushed nuts and lime zest in the pie with homemade whipped cream, which was also on my son’s giant brownie concoction. Truly wonderful. Had it not been for the dessert, I wouldn’t go back. If I’m in the mood for key lime pie, though, I would go back on a heartbeat.

We were seated promptly at a table in the area we requested. Food was delicious...came out fairly quickly and service was overall wonderful. David, our waiter was excellent. Drinks were a little slow and the manager came over to apologize for the back up and personally brought them to us when they were ready.

Food and drink was good along with service but we were surprised to learn at 7:55 that the bar closed to & along with the restaurant. Given our dinner reservation was at 7:30 it would have been nice to be notified of thus timeline as soon as we sat down or when the reservation was booked.

First time eating at this restaurant. Great place to dine with friends and enjoy a good meal. Sitting on the patio was the best! Ordered the filet! Nicely done! Cheesecake is a must, but share!

A friend and I had a reunion dinner after 16 months of not seeing each other due to Covid. We had an excellent server (Manny), excellent table (outside 2nd from fire) and the meal was equisite !!! We did the Salmon and Striped Bass. The Bittersweet Chocolate Ice Cream was divine and just perfect after our light meal.
We will be back for sure .... October, same table :-)

The Copper Canyon at the RIO Entertainment Center is a wonderful eatery which has a unique charm whenever I visit. Our server that was assigned to our table was attentive and friendly, which made our visit exciting and rewarding. I ordered a NY Strip steak, which came with a side salad and fries. It was sooo good, tender and flavorful and one of the best steaks I've had in a long time.

Didn’t like the two steak items our table ordered and they did not make the meat medium well the way we requested.

They were nice enough to return the items but we lost our appetite and chose not to reorder anything else

It was our first time back since the pandemic restrictions were lifted. The menu hadn’t changed much. The service and quality of food hadn’t changed much either (they had always been outstanding). We had an enjoyable date night.

We had a really nice lunch outside. The food & service were excellent, and it certainly helped that the weather was fantastic. We go to Copper Canyon frequently and expect to be back there soon.

The service seemed overwhelmed. While the crab cakes are on the menu they are not available due to shortage (?) The location was very good and it’s a fun area! It’s worth a try but be aware of the above.

Server was rushed and did not explain the specials or the items not available. We heard what they had for specials when he took card of the table next to us after we ordered.
Food was great, so that was the save on coming back again.

Food that we got (beef tenderloin entree) was absolutely perfect. The reason for the 4 vs 5 stars was that the crab cakes on the menu were unavailable, as was on of their specialty cocktails that required cucumber they did not have. What we did receive was perfect; just a bit of a let down given we both wanted crab cakes.

Our daughter loves Copper Canyon so we’re here quite often. Drinks are always good and so is the food. I wish they would bring back their pre-pandemic, more expanded menu, but what they do offer is always good.

My friend and I went for the Steak Frites special. Her steak was cooked as ordered. mine was overcooked and tough. Had to saw through the meat.
I'll stick to the trout in the future. It's very good.
Otherwise everything was fine.

It is a good place. Food is acceptable and the service is generally at high level. The best quality of this place is its surroundings and the view of the lake. The atmosphere is very pleasant and distinguished. I highly recommend it for any tete-a-tete or bigger social gatherings.
