We've had dinner here twice while attending classes at nearby John C. Campbell Folk School. The food is excellent, as is the service. It is a sophisticated, beautifully decorated environment. Our salads were maybe the best we've had -- spinach, goat cheese, blueberries, strawberries and a crunchy, tasty sesame topping. Just the right amount of honey-lavender dressing. Popovers with a...

Dined with family using online reservation. Very nice ambiance and attentive service. Enjoyed complimentary pastry puff rolls with seasoned butter to start. For appetizers we had escargot bourguignons which were prepared perfectly and crawfish crepe which was very tasty. We were pleasantly surprised at the very reasonabe prices of the appetizers which sometimes can be over the top.. For main... More

What a delight to find in the small town of Hayesville, North Carolina. The Scallops Casino was excellent and the Fruits De Mer had a broth that was so good, it could have been a meal by itself! For dessert, we had the chocolate mousse crepe and it was outstanding! The only complaint we had was that the shrimp was... More

Been here a few times. It is an incredible experience for small town dining, This trip was very good. My steak was very tender and would virtually melt in your mouth. My spouse had a New Orleans Amberjack that was perfectly seasoned (just spicy without going overboard). Ambiance was great. Service was a little under what we expect at the... More

My husband and I had dinner here on July 4th and were surprised to find them open. We weren't very hungry so we each ordered a small caesar salad, I ordered a crab cake appetizer, my husband ordered a smoked salmon appetizer and we shared the creme brulee dessert. With the salad also came a delicious bread cut in squares... More

My wife and I have been going to Lake Chatuge for 6 years and The Copper Door is our special treat dinner stop. The steaks are outstanding. I had the filet with foie gras and was in heaven! There is no better dining experience within 30 miles.

We were staying in nearby Hiawassee, GA and made the short drive to the Copper Door at the suggestion of the front desk at our resort. It was definitely the best meal we ate last week!

We enjoyed a very relaxing 2 week vacation in the North Carolina area and ate at several good restaurants but Copper Door was BY FAR the best!! The wait staff was attentive without being overly so and very pleasant. The food was a bit different and definitely delicious.

I have NEVER been disappointed with a meal or service at the Copper Door! Food is awesome and I love having Bananas Foster made at my table. A MUST visit restaurant when you are in the area. This is the type of restaurant you would find in a big city, not a cozy little town, so we are extremely lucky... More
