The waitress was very prompt after we were seated and our drinks were delivered very quick. We both ordered the ribs & wings combo. I had bbq sauce on the ribs and honey garlic on my wings. My partner had the same!! The ribs fell off the bone and were very tasty and the wings had tons of flavour. The... More

My daughter took me to lunch at this very popular downtown restaurant. We shared a Caesar salad with garlicky dressing. It was tasty but too much very green ends of romaine. My daughter had the turkey wrap which she enjoyed. My choice was the soup of the day which was "Chicken Stew" and it really was a stew! Very flavourful... More

I had not been to Copper Penny in years. I love the downtown and off we went for dinner. A large varied menu, with salads, sandwiches, pastas, flatbreads, pub style foods, main entrees of chicken etc, burgers and much more. A large variety of desserts, excellent local draft, and many other options. Pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff, allergy alert, and clean.... More

We frequent the copper penny on a regular basis and very rarely have a problem. I am a big fan of the chicken portobello skillet, while my partner often orders a pizza. We ordered a peanut butter cheesecake the last time we were in and it was to die for!! Our waitress was good as well... we will be back... More

We went to this restaurant with a group of seven people. Everyone thought there food was awful! The ravioli came in a small dish. It looked dried out, pale grey and tasted doughy and like glue. Caesar salad was limp and covered in too much white gooey dressing. The quesadilla was 'open face'?? Soggy! Only the guacamole and salsa were... More

We were lucky enough to choose this restaurant at lunchtime. The patio is on the sidewalk but it is big enough to be seated comfortably. Locally located. We choose their gourmet grilled cheese with seasoned fries. Both were delicious and the French fries were the best I have ever had! Grilled cheese has three kinds of cheeses with bacon and... More

The Copper Penny on Princess Street in downtown Kingston is a great spot for lunch and/or dinner. Street parking, casual attire, not a huge venue, limited (seasonal) patio seating, cozy decor with interior brick walls and lots of wood, combination of booths and tables, very nice staff, friendly and efficient, and very reasonably priced interesting menu. Portion sizes are quite... More

From the exterior and the diner style booths, I was expecting typical roadhouse fare. Was I wrong. Everything my friend and I ordered was terrific! Our salads were fresh and tasty with really great dressing. And the fries!! The best I have had in memory. Salted with parmesan sprinkled on them - outstanding. Service was exceptional. This restaurant is really... More

Always a family favourite for tasty food and reasonable prices with excellent staff - have never had anything here that we did not enjoy. This may sound strange but the seasoning on their fries puts them in a class of their own. Penny On the Farm is great (comfort food) that we often share between two with plenty to eat.... More
