This restaurant is located in the center of Hayesville, NC. It has some curb appeal but does not prepare you for the ambiance, menu and service provided. Excellent wine list, excellent menu selections, presentation and service. Their signature wild mushroom soup is a must have although I was tempted by the soup of the day, seafood chowder which sounded great.... More

First visit, followed others advice and made a reservation which was easy the day before. The service was fantastic and the food was great, had the filet and the tenderloin with Crab meat. One of if not the best I've ever had and would not have expected it in such a small town. If you are in the area make... More

This is one of the very best restaurants we've ever dined at. They were packed but our reservation was available on time - strongly recommend you get a reservation. Three in our party had the Duck with berry sauce, and one had the sea scallops over linguine. All the entrees were delicious. The bread was different - a puff pastry... More

I have dined twice at The Copper Door and am simply astounded at the impeccable service and food offered at this restaurant. I live in the metro NYC area and have lived abroad, and this is hands-down, one of the best restaurants at which I have ever eaten. The ambiance is lovely, the servers are incredibly attentive and knowledgable, and... More

Who would think that you could dine in the equivalent of a 5 star restaurant in Hayesville, NC. The menu was extensive, service outstanding, and great ambiance. The noise level was very low even thought the dinning room sat around 100 diners. The food preparation was excellent with an outstanding presentation, and tasted great.

Fortunately our B&B hosts in Hiawassee recommended the Copper Door since we were seeking a special restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. There is not much in Hayesville, NC, but it is certainly worth a trip there to eat at the Copper Door! We had an absolutely delicious dinner, with great service in a pleasant atmosphere.

Waiter was a little snooty. The pork chop is very good. The soups are wonderful. A little high in price. The ambiance wasn't the best, but acceptable.
