True Pub experience. Friendly and fast service. Lots of local craft brews. Not sure if they take reservations but it was always crowded and I had to wait for a seat at the bar often. I typically just stopped in for a few beers after work and it was a short walk from my hotel. Lively and at times loud... More

I just recently stopped by Cooper again with some friends and was reminded how nice a place it is. One of my friends had been in the mood for pasta, and the closest thing they had was an "enhanced" mac-and-cheese, so she took a gamble and tried it. She was really impressed; this is not your mother's mac-and cheese! We... More

Had only eaten breakfast here before, so this was my first dinner. Great drink options, and great, unique food options. The Cauliflower shots were very delicious! For dinner I had the steak & mushroom pie, it was delicious. My husband had the corned beef and he said it was delish too. Our friends each had the fish & chips and... More

We came here with about 15 people, and they tucked us away in a back corner - which was perfect. The inside is very authentic of how a pub would look in the UK. Appetizers are the best (and they have a great happy hour special that runs till 6:30? on apps). I'd stick with appies, skip the meal. It's... More

This place has a warmth about it, loved the interior and vibe. We had two servers who took great care of us. My apologies to the male server, as I don't recall his name. Morgan was wonderful, and cute as a button. Nice selection of draft brews, and lots of whiskeys. Food was good, not great. The yellowfin tuna was... More

Not what you would expect in a strip mall. I met a friend here for drinks and the atmosphere reminded me of Kieran's Irish Pub downtown Minneapolis. No surprise considering they are owned by the same people but they do create a nice Irish pub. I had a few IPAs($5.50 each) which seemed reasonable and a glass of Malbec was... More

Met with some friends for dinner and beers. Lively atmosphere. Our seats were covered with crumbs. The server arrived promptly to take our order, but took a long time to deliver the first round. Our second round was just as slow. We ordered a round of waters that never came. We ate half of our meal without a beverage. Our... More

Met some very friendly people at the bar, the beer and food was very good. Nice atmosphere - reminded me of a place in between Cincinatti and Dayton that similar but not affiliated.

It's a convenient spot for a pre- or post-movie meal, but otherwise there's just nothing to recommend about Cooper. We shared the meat loaf, curried chicken, veggie burger and fish and chips. All remarkably blah. The individual desserts are truly "wee," as the menu indicates. Average service at best. I'm sure they do a bang-up happy hour business, but otherwise... More

Description
Cooper brings European style to a warm, friendly pub with food that is a destination in itself. The menu includes hearty pub classics with and without twists, vegetarian and ethnic specialties, lighter dishes to satisfy wee cravings, and homemade soups and sauces. Our happy hour highlights a round-the-clock sense of value, with a diverse appetizer menu and loads of drink options. Our Wee Lunch, which includes salad, fries and wee sandwich or burger, is perfect if you normally don’t split or share items. We haven’t limited ourselves to traditional Irish fare – healthy choices abound which will satisfy your hard-working appetite any day of the week. The Pub Life is our heart. Relax with a newspaper and a 2 Gingers Whiskey, invite some friends for stimulating conversation over perfectly poured pints, or engage in some old-world-inspired friendly competition over a game of darts or billiards. Whichever you choose, come in. Make yourself at home. Stay a while.
