After many trips to The Copper Door I never imagined I would give a rating below 5 stars. Tonight however was the exception! In the past I raved about their rack of lamb and had been looking forward to a repeat performance. If I was rating my review just on the lamb it would have to be 2 stars because... More

The food choices on the menu are very outdated. There were actually small gnats flying around. The Copper Door felt similar to a dining room in an independent living facility.

The Copper Door is, in one word, AMAZING! Parking is generous and well lit. Our group of 4 adults and one toddler, were well accommodated with a round table which made it easy to share conversation. A warm, beautiful fireplace is in the center of the room providing a wonderful atmosphere. I had the filet which was truly the best... More

We eat at this restaurant a couple of times each year to celebrate special occasions. The food and service are consistently exceptional. It's always reassuring to see that the high standards set by this restaurant staff remain. On our last outing, both my husband and I had seafood entrees which were delicious and fresh. Our salads were made more delicious... More

On a recent trip to Hiawassee, this restaurant was recommended to us. Since my husband and I were celebrating our 10-year wedding anniversary, we wanted to have a romantic meal at a nice restaurant, and I'm so glad we listened to the recommendation to go here. The restaurant itself is very nice -- clean with a classic look that's not... More

I was fearful that I would be stuck eating paint-by-numbers Mexican or Italian food (or worse, fast food). This restaurant was recommended by a client and I decided to try it. The meal starts with popovers, which is a personal favorite. The menu was diverse, but accessible. The service was top notch. The ambiance was formal fine dining, but not... More
