Never Ordinary

Our Story

Owned and operated by the Cooper family since 1948 Coopers has become a landmark and roadside attraction in Scranton PA. More than just a restaurant think about us as an interesting dining tour experience, once you are here you’ll enjoy everything: the menu, the staff, the decor, and of course, the food.  Nothing is Ordinary!

Who would have thought that back in the late 1800s, when the Erie Railroad constructed a station house for their runs between Scranton and the upper & lower valley cities it would one day evolve into one of the most popular eating and drinking establishments on the East Coast?

Scranton, known as the “Electric City” because of its electric streetcar systems, was a great iron industrial center followed by the coal industry.  In the early to mid-1900s, as the need for railroads became less and less, the original Erie-Lackawanna Station was sold and made into a restaurant.

Cooper’s in Scranton has been a restaurant on this site for over 73 years. It has endured the region’s economic setbacks throughout the late ’50s and ’60s caused by the decrease in the need for anthracite products. From the mid to late ’70s to the present time, Cooper’s has been part of the resurgence of Scranton. Since 1976 seating has increased from 75 seats to over 500 seats, including our Pirate ship built on site along with the newest addition, the lighthouse and dock. In 1976, Cooper’s employed approximately 25 people. Today, in 2021, over 100 people are employed here!
