Copper Door is a very special place. It was a special occasion for our family. The warm greeting from Ada, knowledgeable and professional service by Paloma, and the food! Each of the four of us had a different dish ranging from filet mignon (cooked to perfection) to shrimp (tender and flavorful). All were shared and just amazing. Warm bread to... More

My wife and I had a surprisingly good dinner. She ordered duck and the seafood soup which were excellent. The duck was tender and soup has lot of seafood. I had rib eye steak and crab cake that were loaded with fresh crab meat. Normally I like to drizzle some A1 sauce on my medium done steak but the steak... More

My husband always liked the Copper Door so I decided to treat him on his birthday this year. Sadly the food did not live up to our expectations or previous experiences. Crab cake appetizer was mushy and had an unusual spice. The shrimp appetizer was very good. His beef filet and scallop entre was just OK, nothing special. My scallop... More

This is an excellent restaurant! Do call for a reservation several days in advance. We were visiting college friends and they wanted us to experience The Copper Door and I'm so glad we did. Everything on the menu looked wonderful but listen to the specials. I had the pork chop with mint sauce (sounds odd but wonderful). They were out... More

We cannot say enough about the food and service this restaurant offers. We have been going there for 3 years now, and love it even more today than before. The service is impeccable, David, our usual waiter, is like family. When he is not there Paloma takes right over. We heard they have Prime Rib on Wednesdays, we went last... More

Without a doubt the best restaurant in the mountains. Four of us dined to celebrate our friends 25th wedding anniversary. I ordered the rack of lamb and it was perfectly seasoned and at the right temperature. My wife was more than pleased with her prime rib and our anniversary couple said their steaks were perfect. The service was spot on... More

This was suggested to my husband and I for a great place to celebrate our 1st anniversary, they were so right! We were able to make a same day reservation for the patio. The atmosphere was very sophisticated and romantic, with twinkling lights adorning the patio. The server was very friendly and knowledgeable. The steak was the BEST that I've... More

The ambiance is comfortable, the food exquisite, and the wait-staff impeccable. I highly recommend this gem of a restaurant here in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. My wife and I made reservations for dinner on our anniversary and we enjoyed every course of our meal. The wine list is a bit intimidating, but includes a variety of price points.... More

What a perfect experience. Upon stepping inside the doors of this little gem (in little Hayesville), guests are transported to an elegant and stately, yet approachable and warm, dining pleasure. Nothing is amiss at The Copper Door.
