The Copper Penny is a favorite go-to for Downtown Wilmington pub fans and beer lovers, thanks to a great combination of an extensive beer menu, tasty and filling cuisine, and an undeniably cool atmosphere.

Many longtime patrons argue that the beer and drinks are the star attraction, as the Copper Penny typically features about 20 different and unique brews on tap. From independent domestic favorites to regional NC brewers, beer fans will have a fine time sampling the always-changing drink menu. The food is equally impressive, however, and the menu features a wealth of pub fare including plenty of appetizers and sandwiches, (as well as salads and soups for lighter appetites.) For a snack, patrons can try the cheese steak nachos, the handmade spring rolls, or the massively popular chicken wings, as well as an array of other beer battered or freshly made munchies. Meanwhile, hungrier patrons can dive into one of Copper Penny’s massive platters or sandwiches, like the Ft. Fisher Fish-n-Chips, the hot roasted pork sandwich, or the ultimately filling steak and bacon with cheese and chipotle mayo.

Best suited for ravenous appetites, although everyone can find something to love on the far-reaching menu, the Copper Penny is solidifying its reputation as Wilmington’s favorite pub.
