My husband, parents and I celebrated my 50th birthday over the weekend, which culminated with dinner at the Copper Door. It was our first time dining here, and every part of the meal, from our server, the wine, appetizers, entrees and desserts and coffee were wonderful. My husband and I just bought a home in Brasstown, and we are so... More

I have eaten here and always given this restaurant a 5 star. Today we did not eat here. Here is the story. It was a busy Monday night and we were waiting for our reservation. The 3 lady’s with us was enjoying looking through the glass at the kitchen while the chef and crew were rocking and rolling. The kitchen... More

What you witnessed was the grill cook bending down to wash his hands in a sanitizing bucket. We keep buckets of fresh sanitizing water at each station and since the grill guy can't easily get to a hand sink, his bucket is very useful. All of our kitchen staff are ServSafe trained and food safety is of utmost importance to... More

We had an excellent dinner on 2/11/17. They added the Valentine special on that Saturday as Tuesday was very booked. We enjoyed the Chateau for 2, which was cooked perfectly. Aztec chocolate for dessert was just the right amount for 2. Our server (sorry, can't recall her name) was excellent. Love this place. We've visited several times for special dinners.

This is a really nice upscale restaurant, the food was excellent. My wife and i shared the filet along with some side dishes. The filet was excellent, very tender and the mashed sweet potatoes was really good.

When we first moved here 10 months ago, small town, western NC, I was actually shocked to find such a nice restaurant in the downtown area. One that evidently is fairly renowned, and people actually travel quite a distance to go to. The very first meal I had laid me on the floor. It was just fanstatic that I had... More

I am a cajun from south Louisiana. This diamond opened in 2008. If this restaurant was in Baton Rouge, it would rank in the top ten restaurants in town. The two crawfish dishes are authentic. The Friday seafood gumbo is teriffic. Steaks and fish items are excellent. Desserts like bananas foster, bread pudding and creme Brule are as good as... More

We dined here with several friends, from both in and out of the area, last week right after the local snowstorm. Dinner reservations were ready and we were seated right by the fireplace. We all really enjoyed the various meal selections and I can attest to the quality and flavor of both the HUGE Pork Chop and the 16 Oz... More

I took my wife for her birthday, along with our children. The food was amazing as always. We are local and we love the copper door. We have recommended it to some of our out of town friends and they loved it as well. The steaks are amazing along with everything else that is on the menu. Please give it... More
