Whether you’re working away on a project or taking a day off to relax, we have everything you need for a wonderful lunch in Rockville!

This week we asked you, our guests and friends, to tell us what Copper Canyon Grill and Stanford Grill mean to you. Everyone who told us their story was entered to win a $50 gift card to our restaurants, and we were overwhelmed with the amazing response! We care deeply about the experience you get when joining us for a meal, from the greeting you get when you walk in the door all the way to your dessert, so it’s very important to us to hear from you about your personal experiences. A big thank you to all who entered and shared with us!

We will be sharing more of these stories in the coming weeks, but today are sharing thoughts from our two winners. Lisa had the following to say about what Copper Canyon Grill means to her:

“Dining at Copper Canyon has become a weekly family ritual, where we create memories, share stories and experience the love of friends and family. The servers have even become our extended family that share in our happy time together.”

We love hearing that our family has become part of Lisa’s family. Amanda had similar thoughts about Stanford Grill:

“Stanford Grill in Columbia was the first place in MD that felt like ‘our place’. We started going as an engaged couple. We have celebrated every major milestone in those walls-marriage, jobs, friends, babies, birthdays, date nights…It was the first place we took our new born son, the place we always recommend, and continues to be our first choice for every get together. Thank you for creating such a fantastic atmosphere, and for giving us a ‘place’.”

Again, thank you to everyone who entered and shared with us! We’re thankful to be part of your story!
