It's a small restaurant with good food, specially the salmon! For those who enjoy different things, there's liver with onions.

The pot roast was the only item in the menu that attracted my attention, and it didn't disappoint. It was so tasty I almost finished the whole enormous portion, which could easily feed three adults. It came with a meal-size side salad, choice of potato...More

This was one of two eateries open on Tuesday night. The building needs a good scrubbing. Dead insects on window sills. Average quality food. Nothing seemed to be scratch made... usual diner fare.

I have been going to the Copper Kettle for many years. They have very good food and service and the prices are fair. This is a local favorite.
