We could not believe how amazing the Copper Door was! A gem in the mountains. Amazing wine list and an exquisite menu and experienced staff. Our family (three generations) dined with them and we're all simply wowed. The food and atmosphere just made the event so very special. A lovely space and romantic atmosphere....this is where you ask someone to... More

Exquisite. Amazing. Get your foodie fix in tiny Hayesville. I went with a friend who appreciates fine food as much as I do and we were not in any way disappointed. If you are yearning for a really excellent meal, this is the place to go.

All the reviews are spot on. We arrived 15 minutes early and were promptly seated.Extensive wine list and full bar. Started with brie and then a wedge salad that was absolutely eye appealing and delicious. I had the steak with crab topping and my husband had the rack of lamb .Next time I would get just the steak the topping... More

While staying in Hiawassee for Thanksgiving, we agreed we didn't want to cook the night before the big feast and headed to Hayesville, based on some recommendations from friends. What a great decision! Everything about this restaurant was first class. Service was impeccable. Ambiance was beautiful. And then the food! Our orders ran the gamut and we all shared and... More

The food was more than I expected. We eat a lot in Atlanta and Buckhead, this place topped them all! The wedge salad was great and the steak was the best! I had a filet cooked medium with crab meat on top. The service was spot on. The owners daughter even come out and talked to us. We will be... More

Got in with no reservation as we were at the nearby casino. The Copper Door is an ez 15 minute ride. Service was very good and our appetizer was excellent- we split the Shrimp Kristine. For entrees I had the tenderloin with crab (crab cake on top) and my wife has the salmon. Both were very good. Look this isn't... More

Our first/last visit was a year ago for our anniversary, so we decided to go there again this year. It is still a wonderful experience - the food and the service are excellent, the atmosphere is enjoyable. There are not many outstanding restaurants in our rural area, and we are lucky The Copper Door opened several years ago. It can... More

We go to The Copper Door for special occasions and we can't believe that such a wonderful restaurant is hidden in this little town. The service is excellent and the chef makes devine dishes. They have a good selection of fine wines too. Be sure to make a reservation though.

A friend has recommended this restaurant as somewhere we needed to eat while in the area. I called for reservations and asked if they had candles since it was my husband's birthday and they replied that they did. We arrived early for our reservation but didn't wait long - not even 5 minutes. This white tablecloth restaurant reminded us of... More
