There is a small town by the name of Hayesville in the mountains of southwest North Carolina. Not much to do there but enjoy the mountain scenery and events in the town square like farmer's market and local entertainment in the gazebo. Nice people. Quiet town. The surprise is "The Copper Door". You walk thru the door and are transported... More

The group wanted to go somewhere nice after our service and we discovered great ratings on Trip Advisor for this restaurant. Worth the drive to Hayesville as we were promptly greeted and 1/2 of our group was seated ( they didn't require the "late" rest... More

While visiting friends in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina, they took me to dinner at The Copper Door in Hayesville, NC. That this place is a culinary gem was my first surprise: I had grilled salmon that was delicious, being perfectly cooked and imaginatively sauced, accompanied by wonderful candied carrots and green beans cooked to just the right...

This place was wonderful. The food was amazing. You have to order the desert. The chef uses the highest quality meats and ingredients. The ambiance is cozy comfortable & romantic. The tables are very close together but you don't feel overcrowded. You bring your own wine but they serve it to you like you purchased it from them. A great... More

On a recommendation from our resort we ate at The Copper Door and weren't disappointed. From drinks and appetizers through dessert, every taste was excellent, and nothing was rushed. A very memorable and enjoyable meal. Highly recommend for a nice night out!

Hayesville boasts dining at its finest. Friendly staff and fab food. Chef Dennis is a culinary whiz and takes great pride with what he cooks. Pair your food selection with a glass of wine. There is nothing left to do but to sit back and enjoy!

Fantastic restaurant in a VERY small town. Staff does a fabulous job and Chef Dennis' offerings are BIG CITY choices. Hayesville is most fortunate to have this caliber of dining available. Excellent wine list, intimate bar for pre-dinner drink. Enjoy!
