The Copper Penny
The Copper Penny is located on Chestnut Street close to the Cape Fear River in Historic Downtown Wilmington, NC. They serve both lunch and dinner and are open later into the evening for drinks.
The “Penny” is a local favorite and and offers some of the best pub fare in the city. The vibe is very casual and kid friendly (they provide crayons and coloring options for young children). The staff at the Penny is wonderful and they’ve won numerous “Best Staff” awards from the local entertainment magazine, ENCORE. We’ve shared orders, asked for substitutions, had the kids’ food brought out first, split checks – you name it – and they’ve always been very friendly and gracious.
The Copper Penny has one of the largest beer selections in town (bottled and draft) including some harder to find high gravity offerings and lots of options from North Carolina brewers. If you are looking for a casual lunch or dinner in Wilmington, we highly recommend a trip to the Copper Penny.
