As other reviews some of the staff were shocking, straight up ignoring on their phones at the bar. Other staff in the restaurant were lovely food was good, but we went on a Sunday and is wasn't busy.

The food is OK, took them 25 minutes to deliver the food, one of the drinks looked very bad.
The place could use some cleaning, most of the waiting staff are young people who didn't look keen on working there.
They barely cleaned the dust and that says a lot about attention to detail.

I had the 300g Chicken Schnitzel with Hawaiian Topping & Mushroom Sauce. It was hands down the best I have ever eaten. The service was a 5. Good job guys ??'?

Food was good, a little on the pricey side.
We went between lunch and dinner (2:30pm) and was forced to sit in the noisy bar, with large screen TVs (only showing the same sports event) with only high top tables & stools because they were "setting up" for dinner service. It's unfortunate that there wasn't another more inviting option for us during their "setup" time. The restaurant is plenty big to reserve a section for in betweeners to enjoy a meal without being forced into the loud bar. Weekly specials make this place more affordable. Not sure we'd go back, there are plenty of other fantastic restaurants in Adelaide!!

Quick and easy service with a smile. The current menu is very well balanced with something for everyone. I had a surf and turf and it was perfectly cooked and delicious. Not to mention it being a Coopers Alehouse, with every option on tap. Would recommend ??'?

Great food with big serving. Service given by the staff was excellent. The full range of beer from Cooper's brewery (obviously) is really a spoilt for choice. One will be tempted to try all of them.

Menu is extensive with what you can expect from a bar/restaurant. One will be tempted to try out the massive big sized schnitty or those endless rows of grilled ribs. Food service took quite a while to be ready as we were there in a big group of 20+ but once it's ready for service, the plates were dished out one after another. Everyone had theirs and was eating within 5-6mins when it's call for service.

TLDR: Excellent service. Big menu with big serving. Full range of Cooper's beer to choose from to wash the food down after a hearty meal. Big thumbs up.

The staff are extremely efficient, attentive and the most professional I have witnessed in a very long time. Waiting staff bring food and clear tables so quickly that you do notice them doing it. They constantly ask if drinks or anything else is required. The customer service was so good I thought we were in Melbourne or overseas. Can't praise the staff enough. The communication with patrons as well as other staff is outstanding. Well done will be back and will be telling our tourism clients about this place. Thankyou so much for your amazing hospitality x

Had a 21st Birthday here last night and it was very busy. My chicken schnitzel with plain gravy was pretty good, very decent size. I heard from friends that there were some food issues like the pork was sent back a few times for being undercooked.

A very busy place today. Lots of guests eating. There were a number of large tables of diners.
People at our table had a range of food on offer including chicken snitzel, burgers, fish and chips, oysters.
I had the pizza. From memory was the chorizo pizza. Last one on the list. $29.
Base was crispy and firm with lots of toppings. Drank a glass of coke no sugar.
A nice lunch.
Due to large number of people it was very noisy so a little hard to hear.

Came here for a recent family dinner and were really impressed with the friendly and prompt service, varied menu and great quantity meals. It was table service in the restaurant and we never had to wait for drinks service and the meals were served without much delay. The pork ribs deserved a particularly notable mention. Will definitely be returning in the future and would recommend to others.

Had dinner here tonight with my husband and we were celebrating a life milestone. We were really looking forward to eating together, the place is beautiful with some nice historic charm about it. We were unfortunately disappointed when my meal came out wrong, then we waited enough time for us both to finish easting my husbands meal together. When my replacement meal finally came out it was wrong again. Im giving this review 5 stars because the service after we explained the situation was dealt with very empathetically and we were happy when the meal that went wrong wasn't charged on our account and a sincere apology was made with an explanation that they had a busier than usual lunch service with minimal staff. We were also told when we come next time we will be looked after!

Good venue, good start with the bread, could keep chowing down on it with the 3 dips but when it came to mains, I felt a bit let down from my high. Home tartar sauce was well made, but the chips, prawns, calamari and salad was simply nothing note worthy.

Went here for the novelty and we were not disappointed. We tried some Coopers beers that we haven't had before which was exciting. We also ordered a 600 gram chicken schnitzel (pictured - $29) to share.
Holy smokes, it was absolutely delicious! The pub itself still has so much character and it was lovely to experience and see this. Great vibe, great feed & great beer. 10/10.

Really liked this pub, upon entering premises it looked really quiet, we walked to the back where the restaurant was and it was very busy. We ordered an entree and a pizza for our main. The entree was great, tempura bug tails and the pizza was just how we liked it, wood fired, thin and crispy and the right ratio of topping.

For a pub it's not bad, a good selection of items. The schnitzel is quite good - 8/10. The steak, however, left something more to be desired especially for the price - 7/10. Nice selection of drinks. The food was quite substantial and is what you expect for pub grub.

Great food. We came in for a late lunch..early dinner. Nice and quiet. Hubby had porterhouse schnitzel and I had the pork ribs. Both were delicious ??'?

Great food and value for money.Staff helpful and friendly. Ambience......zilch. Decor was institutional and worthy of a backpackers favourite. Booths, perhaps, more timber, less glass, I donk now! Just didn't make me want to revisit.

My friends and I had a great feed. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and my partner loved their margarita pizza. A bit on the pricy side but that's what comes with great food. A bit of a wait for our dinner but again definitely worth it. I can definitely say we'll be returning for some more delicious grub.

Great food and great beers... Also a good place to get your rugby fix in a very footy state...

Constantly come here, try the beef schnitty.

Went here last night with a group of friends. We booked thinking Friday night would be really busy - it was dead, only 3 other tables inside that we could see and a few outside but mainly drinking. But still took 1.5 hours to bring out our food. We all ordered schnitzels - they bought out the wrong food to the wrong people and didn't take note of the changes we'd applied to the meals when ordering (still came out standard). The chicken schnitzel was disgusting - almost like it was FAKE chicken, didn't even look like chicken breast and was slightly watery inside. It was extremely rubbery, none of us finished and opted to take home which then went in the bin. We let a staff member know it was awful and she didn't do anything about it just kind of brushed over the topic. Within a few hours most of us became quite ill and had to use the bathroom. I have now had to cancel work today due to being too ill to go in as I have been up all night after finishing 1/2 of my chicken schnitzel from this place and paying top dollar for my meal. I paid $35 for a schnitzel and a soft drink. Thank you for the food poisoning coopers

End of year informal gathering for a not for profit, the Active Living Coalition. Were supported by Well-being SA, Heart Foundation, and Office of Recreation, Sport and Racing. I let staff know in advance 15-20 would be coming and we had a jolly good time. Good sized drinks and professional friendly staff. Plenty of seats as per covid times. We loved it.

Really spacious pub, great for gatherings and hosting big parties. Entree was kinda soggy.. Taste was alright. Schnitzel was not bad, mushroom sauce was yummy, but would prefer the sauce on the side so that my schnitzel doesn't get too soggy. But the plating looks sad somehow. Beef steak was good, but could use more seasoning. Bit chewy. Meringue was good, a tad sweet. The brownie was the highlight. A little bit fudgey.

The Original Cooper's Alehouse is a wonderful bar that has a warm and welcoming vibe with comfortable chairs and friendly staff. The drinks are pretty standard selection and cost wise, but the food is delicious so make sure that you grab a table!

They also have a great team that run quizzes here.

Delicious and wide range of both food and craft beers. A little on the expensive side but worth it.

It has a nice atmosphere to it with friendly staff.

IMPROVED!!!
Don't know if they changed chefs or manager but they have definitely raised the bar since last year when I last visited! Better menu, better quality.
A bunch of us went there a few weeks ago and tried a whole heap of their menu. It was all... SO GOOOOOD! Fresh fish, amazing pizzas, crunchy chips, great seafood...just to mention a few. Staff were so friendly too!
Beer...always good. ? Can't wait to visit again.
Keep it up!

Extremely disappointed.
As it was I booked and quoted that I was looking to order the $12 schnitzels, that was fine.
The order came and immediately it was dry and very overcooked, not to mention the gravy was extremely thick, but for $12 I couldn't be too mad.
I went to the counter to pay only to be told that because I ate in the restaurant our 2 schnitzels and one drink came to a total of $59.
I mentioned that when I booked I had mentioned the price and Instagram post and the lady said "sorry, they messed up".
So for the price I paid, the schnitzel was dry, tasteless, very bellow average and I wouldn't go back even if it was $12.
The salad had lettuce, 2 slices of tomato and 1 olive.
The gravy was average just a bit thick.
The chips however were pretty good despite being cold.
Oh and the drinks were very overpriced.

Thank you, but no thank you.

If you love a schnitzel you have to take home in a pizza box because its so huge then this is the place for you.
Good Pub fare, Quiz on Tue nights and air con that works.
If it weren't for a few moody bar staff that make you feel like you are wasting their time, then this would easily be 5 stars.

Just had an excellent 600gm Porterhouse MSA Schnitzel with mushroom sauce and it was excellent. Perfectly crumbed with soft tender meat and some crunchy chips. Got a salad as well which was also delicious. The schnitzel was also quite hefty in volume which is a bonus, not flattened like other places. If you are a person who loves schnitzels, this is a place you must try!

A great Melbourne cup event. A balcony affair with 3 courses and drink package. A real value deal. The meal really was outstanding, we know I am fussy, but the steak was fantasic and the lemon meringue pie was blissfully tangy with a short crust pastry. Service was friendly and attentive, you are really doing this right. Thank you all for making my Melbourne cup special and for the lovely basket of goodies I won.

Good old school pub with a nice classy, cosy feeling about it and the wood fired pizza oven is a great addition in the middle of the dining area. They are in the middle of renovations at the front bar at the moment so will be looking forward to the finished product. The food was excellent and of a good size serve. I didn't have a schnitzel but from what I hear they hang off the edge of the plate
