We always come for at least one meal here-- everyone loves their fries! The meals are tasty and well-priced. Those burgers... wow. A definite must-visit!

Great location before or after a show at Grand. Excellent staff, is really what sets them apart. Food arrived fast and well prepared. Our family enjoyed the Penny Club, French Dip, Fries, mozzarella sticks and finished with carrot and skor dessert.

French onion soup. Anything with fries. Literally all I need to order from the menu to completely satisfied for my cravings. I came here a lot when I was in school but coming back after, it just continues to blow my mind. Of course, the place, like most parts of Kingston, need renovation and an updated decor, but food-wise, still... More

This restaurant has been part of the landscape on Princess avenue for a very long time. The décor and the food is ok but has not evolved over the years.

A friend and I chose the Copper Penny for this month's lunch get-together. Located along the Princess Street strip in the downtown core, this is a popular place amongst the Queen's student population as well. We chose macaroni and cheese for me and the poutine for her, followed by raspberry and Reese's cheesecake slices. Filling, fattening comfort food perfect for... More

My husband and I stopped in for an early dinner one evening. The location couldn't be better on Princess Street, in the heart of shopping downtown. The menu is huge, with quite a varied selection. The food was good, and service was pleasant. We'll be back.

The waitress was very prompt after we were seated and our drinks were delivered very quick. We both ordered the ribs & wings combo. I had bbq sauce on the ribs and honey garlic on my wings. My partner had the same!! The ribs fell off the bone and were very tasty and the wings had tons of flavour. The... More
