Central New York based, CopperTop has been family owned and operated since the doors opened at the Cicero location in November of 2007. The interior is European inspired with dark woods, rich colors and of course, a copper topped bar. The ambiance is a relaxed and social atmosphere with a menu that offers an eclectic blend of American dishes with European and Asian influences.
Creating a successful, versatile menu is like creating a work of art. Motivated by experiences gained during our travels around the world, we drew inspiration from many of the cultures we visited. Combining that with years of experience, many talents, and quality, fresh ingredients we have artfully crafted dishes that appeal to all of the senses.
Providing a memorable dining experience is our passion. We believe there is only one way to provide exceptional food. Create from scratch, every day. We use traditional cooking methods starting with the freshest raw ingredients, no pre-made sauces, no frozen ingredients and no shortcuts. We pride ourselves on our homemade food using local ingredients when possible. We owe a special thank you to the farmers and purveyors who provide us with the finest produce, cheese, meat and more allowing us to craft the perfect selection of dishes.
Complementing our dedication in the kitchen is an ambitious bar that boasts over 80 draft lines between two locations with carefully selected flavors from several local craft breweries and many others from around the world. Our flair for artistry also crosses over into our bar. Over 22 handcrafted martinis made with fresh ingredients and top quality spirits dominate the cocktail menu.
We’re proud to say that most of our staff has been with us for quite some time. All of us, staff plus family are humbled and honored to have had the privilege of serving Central New York for over 40 years. We take special pride in being a family business. We remain actively involved in day-to-day operations and unconditionally dedicate our time and energy into assuring that your experience at CopperTop goes unmatched by any other.
We are delighted and proud that CopperTop has become known for its delicious food, hearty portions, great value, and friendly social scene. We thank you, our guests, for making CopperTop Tavern all that it has become.
