My wife and I took our two boys (ages 2 & 5) to dinner at Coopers in Scranton. My wife got the boys kids meals of fried shrimp and French fries. The kids’ meals arrived before ours.
The kids’ meals still had the tail on the shrimp so my wife and I both started taking the tails off the shrimp so our kids wouldn’t choke on them.
The Shrimp burned our fingers because they were so incredibly hot.
I complained to the server about how incredibly hot the kids’ meals were. She smirked and explained to me that seafood had to be cooked to a certain temperature.
I explained to her that the food should also be served at a temperature that is safe to eat. If my 2 year old ate the food, he’d be in serious pain. The server started to laugh. She repeated her safe seafood temp logic and I asked to speak to the manager.
The manager tried to suggest that the waitress was not laughing in disrespect but because she might have been nervous as if we don’t know the difference.
I gave the manager more details to refute her suggestion but the manager again suggested the waitress laughed because she was nervous. I knew I was not getting anywhere.
I would implore all parents to stay away from Coopers seafood house, especially if you don’t find toddler safety to be a laughing matter.
AWESOME – LOVE Coopers. The food is abundant, the service is great!
LOVE LOVE everything I have eaten here!
Avoid eating here – Great stuff hanging on the walls but lets face it, you go there to eat. Everyone is crammed into one dining room while others are empty. The wait staff was surly and we had to go find our waitress twice. The seafood is dry and greasy and one of our party had an unwashed plate while the other had a long hair in the scampi. We gave this place more than one chance because it is great to take visitors to an unusal resturant but they won't see us again. A good cleaning and new chef are needed.
Terrible restaurant – I recently visited Coopers Seafood House in Scranton. After a long wait on a Wednesday night, I finally got a table in the corner of the old room, which smelled like urine and was extremely warm. After 25 minutes and several servers passing our table, we finally called someone over to get our drink order. My husband ordered surf and turf rare and it came out welldone and the lobster was very salty. My chicken scampi was ok but it came over rice when I asked for pasta. Instead of waiting I ate most of the dish until I cut into the last piece which was raw in the middle!!!! Very dissapointing experience and will never go back. When the manager came to the table we were apologized to but nothing else was offered.
Got to Get My Coopers Fix! – I have to get my Coopers "fix" once a month! Coopers has by far the best seafood in town! I don't even like oysters but I gladly eat them here. The food is always cooked to perfection. They are so consistent . The appetizers are so varied and all so good that it is very difficult to decide, but try them all you won't be dissappointed. Everything on the menu is worth trying for that matter but my favorite is the crab bisque! The quality and taste are simply unsurpassed. The restaurant in Scranton has the most ambiance but I visit both of them all simply for the great food. If you like seafood this place will quickly become you favorite restaurant. I have a girlfriend that surprised her husband for his birthday by driving him to Scranton from Philly just so they could go to Cooper's for his bday dinner! That's how good this place is!
Cool Place To Eat – A good place for lunch or dinner. We were visiting relatives in Old Forge for the 4th and decided to go to Coopers for something more than pizza. ( We ate a lot of pizza in Old Forge since it is the pizza capital of the world) The food was very good. I had a steak that was done perfectly and my husband had the "Fishermans Platter" that he liked as well. We were so happy about our experience that we returned several days later. My husband had the coconut shrimp and I had the Potroast. Again, we were both pleased with our selections. The service was good and the place was clean.
Our favorite stop to eat at. – My wife and I travel from Canada to Florida each year and Cooper's is our favorite stop. The crab bisque, and coconut shrimp are our favorite appetizers and for a entree we always try something new. We have never been disappointed. The atmosphere and staff are top notch! 5 stars. Can't wait to go back. W&B
people are so we todd id – people like you are always trying to get something for free. jeez..why cant you just cook for your self then. How can you say coopers here coopers there is bad...whats the difference. And HOW in the world could you tell someone "I cant eat this food"...you know just appreciate what you get and be happy!!...there are some who cant have even half of what you have at coopers...so just chill out and if you dont like the food, then cook something yourselfn if you know so much about good food!!!
Worst experience ever – I went to the plains, Coopers and the food was not appealing at all; from one look I told the waitress that we would not be eating there. I don't know what I was expecting. All that I do know is that I was looking forward to the meal there because I had previosly been to the one in Scranton and the food was GREAT. I was very disappointed because I had taken a friend and I had been bragging all day about how good the food would be and low and behold because of time restraint we were never able to make it out to the one in Scranton. I will never go back to the Plains, Coopers ever agin.
Tacky place...but in a good way. – I have been going here for over a decade and still like this place. I use to love it but I think they are starting to get too big for their own good. The quality of the food while still good isn?t near what it used to be. The service fluctuates between outstanding and bad. If you have a complaint about your food expect nothing more than a shrug of the shoulders and maybe a ?sorry?. That was all I got when I complained about my lobster that I needed a knife to cut it was so over cooked. Its saving grace is the ship?s pub, crab shack bar and the lighthouse bar. This place has four separate bars with the ship?s pub and the grill room (the original bar) being the best. This place takes tacky to the next level but in a good way. I now mainly go there for a few drinks and eat elsewhere.
