The Beginning


Cooper Restaurants, a division of the Cooper Group of Companies was founded by brothers David J. Cooper Sr. and Angus R. Cooper, II. The company began with a Ruth's Chris Steak House franchise in Mobile, Alabama. The franchise was set to close in the late 1990's but was the favorite restaurant of the Cooper family.

David Cooper Sr. travelled to New Orleans, to speak with Ruth's Chris founder, Ruth Fertel to try to persuade Fertel to not close, his favorite restaurant. Mrs. Fertel could not be swayed. Before leaving the meeting Fertel did agree to allow the restaurant to stay open, and thus began the Cooper Restaurants with a franchise of Ruth's Chris Steak House.



The company now includes two Ruth's Chris Steak House franchise locations one in Mobile, Alabama and the other in Ridgeland, Mississippi along with two restaurants that were founded by Cooper family. Each restaurant of the is unique and different but they all have one thing in common: to create a memorable guest experience.

Professional service, the highest quality products and a passionate staff creates an atmosphere at Cooper Restaurants that is contagious it will have you coming back occasion after occasion. We look forward to creating memories as we celebrate life's memories with you.

We hope each time you enter our restaurants you feel like the most important person at the restaurant, because you are!

(FELIX) While visiting our friends at Christmas they took us here. It was outstanding! Phillip was our server and did a fabulous job. I recommend the soups for starters and everything else on the menu. We want to come here on all future visits.
