My husband and I went to Copelands for dinner. The appetizer, crab claws in some kind of sauce was inedible. It was so salty I thought it was a joke at first. After sending that back we got another appetizer that was just 'ok'. My husband ordered stuffed shrimp. They were teeny tiny shrimp, chewy and burnt and tasted awful. We did not feel like sending this dish back and waiting for another. At that point we just wanted to get out of there quickly. My dish was the alfredo with crab cakes. The alfredo had no flavor. Bland. Certainly not worth the price we paid. The only positive thing was we had an excellent waiter, Barry. He was great. However we will not be going back. We will stick with pappadeux.

On the positive side, the service was attentive and if you want a quite restaurant without a wait then Copeland's is the place. I and my fiancee went to Copeland's on a Thursday night. We knew that in Buckhead, finding a good restaurant without a long wait could be a challenge. Well, at Copeland's there was NO wait -- it was almost dead! At best there were 15 or 20 people there. But, wait, where did the people go? Ah! To better restaurants. Copeland's has a kitchen that falls short, way short, more often than not — I had crab stuffed catfish and the catfish seemed frozen, not fresh, while the crab stuffing was at least 90% breadcrumbs and what was left was processed crab - it was bad and bland. My fiancee ordered stuffed shrimp (same pathetic stuffing) but the five breaded shrimp she got were just a little larger than the popcorn shrimp that you get at Capt. D's. What a joke. Over all, if you want Cajun then best head back to Pappadeaux. It is very noisy at Pappadeaux, but at least the food is good.

The Service: One Sunday evening before catching a movie, my finance' and I decided to stop in for a quick bite. Well, when we first walked through the doors, I was immediately irritated by the fact of no one being there to greet us...for five minutes we stood there. Only after my fiance' reached behind the concierge desk to call for someone did someone finally come to seat us. After we were seated, thats all we were doing "Sitting" waiting once again to be greeted by our server! 15 MINUTES LATER, My finance got up and walked to the kitchen in quest for just putting in a food order. When the server finally arrived to our table, He said that no one informed him that he had been sat. Okay. Not our problem. He asked for our drink orders and was so in rush to run off that my fiance'shouted. "NO we are ready to put in our order now!" The guy said, "well let me get this table their check and I'll be right back." What the hell? You can't be serious is what I'm thinking to myself. He comes back to take our order... Crab Cakes, and Seafood platter appetizer. This should only take about what, 7-10 minutes?! 20 minutes later, after once again, my fiance' had to go find someone, did our food arrive by another worker. After almost completing the meal, our server came over to ask how everything was going.(more about this later) My Fiance' replied, " You can just give us the check because have some where to be. Not to mention we told the server this when we first put in the order....

Other than the biscuts (which make my toes curl!) the food is ok, the service is bland and the atmosphere is stale. AM I the only one who misses the old Buckhead dining/nightlife of 10 years ago!???

This is the best place in town to eat. Not only is it the best Cajun food, but it is the best restaurant period. My family and I eat there twice a week. I can't get enough!

I enjoy the Jazz on Tuesday nights. The food is OK - the buscuits are a staple (ask for extra). I had the salmon and it was just OK. The beans and rice are very good. They don't taste pre-packaged like most places. The service is a little slow and most of the non-waiting staff appeared to wish they were some place else.

The portions are small, for the price, and the food is only so-so. Go to Pappadeux if you want better. The biscuits are great, and so are the bananas foster, but the etoufffe is sub-par. Plus, the place looks like something out of Scarface. Pink neon is so... eighties.
