The Copper Kettle
The Copper Kettle’s menu is a throwback to simpler times. Country-fried steak, fried chicken, and beef pot roast are just three of the kitchen’s dinner specialties. Each comes with macaroni and cheese or potatoes, plus a trip to the salad bar. If they still have room, diners can finish the meal with one of six homemade pies, in daily rotating flavors such as apple, lemon, and sugar-free banana crème. Breakfast—from biscuits and gravy to fluffy flapjacks—is served morning or night. The Copper Kettle also has a kid’s menu, featuring chicken strips and grilled cheese to keep tykes from stealing bites off their parent’s plates or chewing off their own arm.
