Restaurant Road Trip: Copper House Grill

Posted: Updated:
FAIRMONT -

The big question over the past couple of months in Fairmont is: Who is building that house with a copper roof?

That is exactly how the new Copper House Grill got its name.

At first sight, you would think you're about to walk into a five star restaurant. Owners said that's exactly how it's supposed to look.

"When you see the foods that we have, our seafood, our steaks, it is that. It is more of a fine dining restaurant. But we want it to be casual. We wanted our prices to be lower," said Bill Oliver, Copper House Grill Co-Owner.

ESPN is on the television, memorabilia covers the walls, and guests come to enjoy lunch on the large deck. It's a typical day for Copper House employees, who said their business has sky-rocketed in just a months time.

"Overwhelming. Anything that we expected, its been well beyond those goals. We are tickled with how Fairmont has supported us," Oliver said.

Guests said the restaurant has brought something different to Fairmont, which was something it really needed.

"It's really important for a place like this to come to Fairmont. People have been asking 'Where are we going to go?' and 'What are we going to do?' This is what Fairmont needs," said Amanda Biddle, customer.

Copper House said there isn't just one thing that sticks out to people on the menu. There are several.

"Our crab dip in the bread bowl. Our Oysters Rockefeller. They both do very well," Oliver said.

"They have the 'Fairmonter'. It's a pepperoni roll. It's really big and really, really good. The BLT is good too. They have a really awesome crab dip. Everything is good here. There isn't anything on the menu I wouldn't eat," Biddle said.

Copper House Grill caters to every person who walks through its doors. If you're looking to head out for a few drinks or you just want to take your family out for a nice dinner, Copper House said it's the place for you.

"We use only the best of the best here. But we also price it to where anybody can come in and eat. That's what we want. We want people in this restaurant. We want seats full," Oliver said.

Copper House Grill is located on Airport Road in Fairmont, across the street from the Fairmont Municipal Airport. Monday through Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 12 a.m.; Thursday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.; and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m.
