What a perfect dining experience. Opens at 5 PM, greeted by dining staff standing in a line to welcome you and take you to your table. The food! Out of this world with a bit of New Orleans flavor, says the Chef, who came to visit our table and thank us for dining with them. Really upscale and delightful! G.... More

This place is a gem in the middle of nowhere ! The service was attentive but not over ingratiating . The dinner from the mushroom bisque to the sea salt caramel gelato at the end was superb. This is my third time ...it is now an annual tradition and it never disappoints. When in Hayesville NC, it is a must!

Don't make any assumptions about this place until after your first bite! Yes, it's near the middle of nowhere. No, it's not in a big presumptuous building. But man, oh, man! When you experience the food, the service, the wine selection...it's as though upon stepping through that eponymous Copper Door you were somehow transported into another dimension of fine dining....

We had a party of 5 for 5pm on a Saturday just as the restaurant opens. There was a crowd waiting. We were all seated in moments and the service from the front door to leaving the restaurant was exceptional. Amber our waitress explained all the specials and dealt perfectly with all of our orders and special requests. The food... More

Drove here from Lawrenceville to celebrate our 38th anniversary. Well worth the drive! Sword fish and chops were superb! The creame brûlée was great as was the flourless chocolate cake was great. Excellent place!

My wife and I visited this small unobstrusive restaurant in the tiny town of Hayesville on a Monday night after staying over in Hiwassee, Ga for a few days. Pulling up to this place was strange as it looked like a semi-deserted building on the outside. The place came highly recommended so we ventured inside and boy are we glad... More

What?! One of the best restaurants I have visited in little-known Hayesville, NC? This little mountain town has its own uniques charm, and then to go to one of only two restaurants in historic Hayesville (currently two, but I'm betting there will be more once people begin discovering this diamond), I was really very pleasantly surprised. I had their 8... More

Fabulous food from a terrific menu is further enhanced by the rustic decor and superior service of this A-One restaurant. After multiple dining experiences, it has always been dependable for a special evening out and a very satisfying experience.

Particularly attractive for a special occasion dinner comma the Copper Door is a very special venue. On our most recent visit I ordered the petite filet and my husband ordered the rack of lamb, both of which were exceptional in quality and preparation. The service is impeccable, and they had arrayed rose petals and a happy anniversary card on our... More
