Copper Barrel on State


Start the weekend off right by ordering from the Copper Barrel on State!

Cooper Barrel is a locally sources restaurant located on State Street in Hampshire.

“Focusing on American cuisine, classic favorites, and our featured smokehouse selections. Our menu design is inspired through our connection with local farmers, growers, and vendors. We hope you enjoy your experience at The Barrel!”

At Copper Barrel you can feed the whole family with ease by ordering a family style meal or combo. Plus there are so many family meals to choose from like mac and cheese, baked mostaccioli and a smokehouse combo that features ribs, brisket, chicken, sausage and pulled pork all smoked on sight!

Almost every day presents new opportunity because of the amazing specials that run Tuesday-Sunday! A few highlights are that kids eat free on Tuesdays with the purchase of an adult entrée, all you can eat Friday fish-fry, and prime rib Sundays. See all Copper Barrel specials here.
