We were nearing the end of a long road trip, and wanted some lighter road fare. We found it here. My wife had a California Chopped salad, very generous, lots of good crunch. I opted for the Ahi tuna bowl which featured great crunchy slaw...More

CopperTop is a fun place to hang out with friends for a drink. It’s a loud, fun atmosphere with plenty of tables and bar space to sit. The food is a notch above typical Tavern food, reminding me of a bigger version of Hafners in...More

We have ate at both locations in Syracuse, NY. Always a great meal. Try the Copper Nachos but make sure you have someone to share with. WOW! Sandwiches are delicious, dinners are too. Beers and specialty drinks are amazing too. You won't be sorry !

I believe you are making assumptions about this wonderful restaurant without even giving it a try. I am sure that there are no ethnicity issues at Copper Top. The food is wonderful and the staff are always friendly and... More
