It was my husbands birthday and he wanted Prime Rib. Our reservation was for 7:30 and when the waitress first came to our table she said that they were “almost out of prime rib”. By the time she came back to take our order she said they no longer had any. My husband was very disappointed as we came here specifically for that. He ordered Filet instead. I ordered salmon and two sides. It took quite a while for our food to come but once it did she didn’t bring my baked potato. It took her quite awhile to get back and she said they were out of baked potatoes. By this time I had been eating the rest of my food so she told me that I could have another side so I ordered rice. It wasn’t great but I was able to mix it in with my vegetables. The salmon was only so-so and my husbands steak was over cooked. This was the third time we came here and it was definitely not the charm! Not sure if we’ll go back. It was an expensive dinner to be so bad. Not worth the money.

$15.50 for the same frozen shrimp I could have purchased at Walmart.

Prime Rib was gone by 730.

I ordered the scallops. They were very good. Not $35 good.

Way over priced for the quality of food.

We went there for their specialty of prime rib. My husband's piece had a considerable amount of gristle, but they promptly replaced it when he reported the problem. Otherwise, we had no complaints. The entire meal was delicious, including the sides.

Food and drinks were about twice the price it should have been for the quality. Service however was excellent. Waiter Dewey was spectacular. I got the “Best old fashioned” which wasn’t anything better than I would have mixed up myself when I’m not a mixologist. It may have had more simple syrup than bourbon. Was mediocre but not necessarily bad. I ordered some oysters as I have been craving recently. Only 2 of the half dozen had any oyster liquor left in them as they were brought out on a plate and had drained. Chicken Chesapeake wasn’t bad if it had been an $15-$20 plate but wasn’t deserving of the $32 price. I’ve had better plates for less….

Overall, I think Copper Kettle is overpriced. I know beef costs are high, but the salads and other entrees are overpriced as well. I got a Greek salad that was mostly lettuce. My husbands prime rib (which is the specialty) had fat on it. It was my husband's birthday and we ordered a dessert to share. The server knew it was his birthday, but didn't comp the dessert. Our dinner for 4 was $160 without tip. Two of us had salads, and I had an added crab cake which was good. We each had one drink. I think that is too much to spend for dinner in the Chambersburg area.

Chicken and steak over cooked, chicken was white and bland. Broccoli steamed and bland, fries the exact same brand as where I work, double the price for less. Incredibly loud as well. Scallops were good but not worth the money.
