Description: The Cooperage Inn takes great pride in serving the freshest fish, meats and local produce available. Sauces are expertly prepared on premise by our chefs. The name "Cooperage Inn" comes from the craft of coopering, which goes back a few centuries, when it was the major method of packaging. We are located in the Long Island Wine region. Wine makers have always relied on the skills of the Village Cooper to store and age their wines.

“Very nice food!”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Lovely wholesome food and a good varied menu in the middle of Wine country. A little pricey but nice for a treat and break from the standard diner/ chain restaurant fare.

“A Favorite Spot”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

This is a wonderful restaurant. It is "classy casual" I would say. Dress nicely, but you won't have to worry about any pretense here. The food is really good and the service is excellent. I would recommend the Sunday brunch more than anything else. The lunches and dinners are delicious, but there is just something almost magical about the brunch. Make reservations when you can....especially during the fall season.

The only reason why I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the menu rarely changes and there is a huge lack of vegetarian entrees....let alone vegan ones. It would be nice if the menu included something along the lines of a quinoa dish. Other than that, the Cooperage Inn is near perfection.

Food is good but have been going there for years. The menu doesn't change much. In my opinion if you go you should go in Sunday for brunch it's really good

Reviewed 22 July 2014

We sat all the way back in the long, rear room with dark walls, very dated, and old-fashioned looking, but nice.The basket of rolls was ordinary and were pre-packaged. I had an excellent mixed green salad with oil and vinegar, not exotic, but very good and tasty.Then, the salmon on a bed of wild rice and spinach, but it was cold and not hot. The dessert was a super-tiny dish of vanilla ice cream, too small, but with a huge amount of fake whipped cream on top, and some little bits of honeydew. I had never had ice cream with honeydew before. Ice cream with whipped cream? Unsophisticated.

The ladies' bathroom was very clean though dated and old-fashioned in decor. The parking lot was very large and good. Three feral cats obviously love it, too. The surrounding grounds of their property were very nicely done and attractive. It is a very charming area there in Baiting Hollow, truly in the country, although TripAdvisor and Google state it is located in Calverton, adjacent towns.

The restaurant was not very busy; one could see that. Yet, the service was very slow though. The wait staff was very polite, pleasant and helpful anyway. This is a long drive for us, and we would not return there for a meal, if there was a choice, as there are so many better, more interesting restaurants closer to us.
