My family and I started going to the Kopper Kettle in 1955 and were very eager to return. The food is still quite good. The server was efficient, if not overly friendly. However, we got the feeling that the hostess would rather have been someplace else the night we were there and that we were merely roadblocks in her plans. That's unfortunate, since she's the first person guests encounter and the one who sets the tone for the evening. We were also disappointed by the decor. The historical elegence of this once magnificent inn was tainted by cheap and gaudy halloween decorations, rather than simple fall displays. The old piano, which a charming elderly man used to play during the dinner hour, is now used to ""adorn"" a horrid pair of skulls, in keeping with the halloween theme. We will probably go back, but it may be a while. It's simply not the same as it used to be.
