This is a pleasant experience and a nice, accessible location. Inside you are transformed from a busy street outside to a unique, relaxing interior. There is an artificial but picturesque waterfalls out the main window. Ample seating. Excellent food and s wife variety of choices. Mid to higher prices but worth it. A nice place for lunch or dinner.

We were there on a Sunday evening, only three or four tables occupied. They were apparently understaffed so service was slow. The vegetables were way overcooked and oily. The entrees were OK, but no match for the high prices of each.

The service from Susan was so sweet, came to serve us, made sure we were happy. Scaloppini Tuscany and Raspberry Almond Chicken were ordered. Delicious meal (baked potato was a little undercooked but Susan eagerly gave me a replacement of red skin potatoes which was filled with lots of herbs). We sat by a window with a view of snow...

Food was good. Great selection of items. Pricing is all over the place so you should be able to find something in your price range. Our service was very good. The restaurant was well decorated and clean.

Delightful food, atmosphere and wait staff. The candle at the entrance needs to go! It overpowered the entire restaurant and I could not get that smell out of my nose/head/mind the rest of the night. Although I can understand lighting a scented candle upon opening for the day, but It was extremely overpowering!

We love the Willow Tree in West Branch, so we were excited to see that Copper Falls was owned by the same people. We knew it had to be good. From the drinks, to the Walleye, to the ambiance, and even dessert, this place was excellent. Sure to return.

A 3.5 star, but I rounded up for the cool photo of Elliots Falls on the wall by the bar. The food is good. The steaks (I had the Surf & Turf) lacked the kind of flavor I'd expect from the place - you know it when you bite into it; it's been marinaded, allowed to settle and the finish... More

This is really a great restaurant! Beautiful atmosphere and the food and the service very good. We had a large group and ordered several appetizers. Delicious Ahi tuna, crab cakes, shrimp and the escargot, though very rich with butter, were excellent. Their salads are all slightly different from most restaurants but extremely tasty. The filet was done to perfection. They... More
