American cuisine at Cooper’s Tavern and Taproom is popular among New Kent residents – Daily Press

QUINTON — Since opening two weeks ago, Coopers’ Tavern and Taproom has been popular with locals.

“It’s been outstanding and we’ve had great reviews,” said COO Jamie Allan. “We’ve already established neighborhood regulars waiting for us to open.”

The industrial-style restaurant is located on Cumberland Station Road in the New Kent community of Quinton and offers American cuisine such as burgers, tacos, bowls, salads and appetizers prepared by Executive Chef Andy Jones. However, it’s the specialty drinks and beer selection that really set the place apart, according to Allan.

“We have 24 beers on tap, beers you won’t find anywhere else, and craft cocktails,” Allan said. “Our patio grinder is a customer favourite. »

Cooper’s has seating indoors and on patios at the front and back of the establishment.

Since the official opening on July 8, visitors have left positive reviews and comments on the restaurant’s Facebook page. Diner Ken Sparks wrote that he and his wife have been three times since Cooper opened.

“We enjoyed several menu items and plan to go through them all,” Sparks wrote.

“Exactly what [New Kent] necessary,” wrote Maria Buchman.

Cooper’s is owned by Carson Diaz and Greg Guy (Grub LLC). The two also own several other restaurants, including Trojan Grill and Martha’s Kitchen in New Kent, Blue Heron in Charles City, and Blue Crab in West Point.

Cooper’s Tavern and Taproom is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. According to social media, pickle fries seem to be a particular favorite, along with desserts.

The restaurant switches to a late-night menu of tacos, bowls and fry at 10 p.m.
