Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant is a modern concept for casual dining.
Unlike most casual dining chains, Cooper’s Hawk has a more upscale appeal, with the merging of a winery with a restaurant, private dining spaces, and its menu selection.
Cooper’s Hawk menu is divided into eight major types: Dine-in and Carry Out, Wine in Tasting Room, Thanksgiving Meal Kits, Gluten Free, Dessert, Happy Hour, Catering, and Kids Menu.
The main Dine-in and Carry Out menu includes all other menu items except those on Thanksgiving Meal Kits, Catering, and Kids Menu.
The purpose of multiple menus is convenience. If a customer only eats gluten-free they may request the Gluten Free menu and directly select from there.
Likewise, if someone wants explicitly to browse desserts, happy hour prices, or the wine-tasting selections they can ask for the relevant menu.
The menu of Cooper’s Hawk has an array of selections. The appetizer section alone has 10+ options to choose from, including soups and salads.
The main course varieties are also numerous. There are multiple choices: Pasta & Risotto, Chicken, Steak & Chops, Seafood, Vegetarian Entrees, Surf & Turf, Burgers & Sandwiches, Lunch-sized Entrees, and Sides.
Salads & Combinations contains choices of salads and there is a Life Balance section with menu items of 600 calories or less for those wishing to enjoy a tasty meal while maintaining their calorie intakes.
The menu starts with Cooper’s signature and note-worthy selection of premium wines, followed by their cocktails and beer.
The drinks in particular are the star of the menu since Cooper’s Hawk is also a winery chain.
In addition to food, the menu also has a dessert section and a drinks section. A few non-alcoholic beverages are also listed including hot and cold beverages.
The menu also suggests pairings of wine with food, a standout feature.
The kid’s menu lists the choices of kids’ meals offered by Cooper’s. Each entrée comes with fresh fruit, a drink, and a side.
It is a very interactive menu with fun facts and games like Word Search to keep the kids entertained.
The catering menu lists the food, drinks, and dessert options from their main menu that are also available for catering.
Thanksgiving Meal Kits is an exclusive version of the catering where whole thanksgiving meal packages can be ordered for pick-up or dine-in.
