Located in the little town of Hayesville, NC this restaurant offers the best of everything. It's a great place for dinner, try the shrimp shooters as an appetizer, and dessert. They also offer occasional wine dinner pairings which have all been excellent. They will even teach you how to prepare great food with the available cooking classes. Excellent wine cellar... More

This is rated one of the top steak houses in the USA. Service is impeccable, flavors abound your senses. You will leave w/ to go box. The fresh baked rolls are to die for. The filet is the most tender I have had anywhere. Veggies taste fresh picked. I cannot say enough good things!!!! A big plus is I live... More

The Copper Door is unique in many ways but probably first in that you normally find restaurants of this caliber in large cities. I have dined here on many occasions with family and friends and always try to take clients here as it never disappoints. The service is outstanding.

The Copper Door once was a dirty, greasy auto repair facility. It was converted into a nice, subdued dining establishment. Chef Dennis has done a marvelous job and his dishes are quite wonderful. This restaurant is a bit pricier than most of the eateries in our humble little town, however, there are items on the menu that are quite reasonable.... More

The food, service and ambience meet the highest standards, Chef Dennis and his staff never disappoint. They have an extensive wine list, check out the wine cellar, and a full bar. Appetizers like crawfish crepes, the freshest oyster shooters and their signature, and my favorite, wild mushroom bisque are just the start of a wonderful meal. The varied menu has... More

This place was fantastic! Paloma gave the six of us excellent service. I started with the mushroom soup that was so creamy and full of mushrooms. For my entree, I greatly enjoyed the filet and scallops, which were cooked to perfection, along with a delicious side of garlic mashed potatoes. They also bring baskets of popovers that are very tasty.... More

The atmosphere was a traditional steakhouse with comfortable booths and quiet dining room. It was so nice to be able to speak with my spouse during dinner. The wait staff was very attentive and the food was great. I had the duck and spouse had the steak. Both were great.
