“Fine Dining in the Country”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

We enjoyed a very relaxing 2 week vacation in the North Carolina area and ate at several good restaurants but Copper Door was BY FAR the best!! The wait staff was attentive without being overly so and very pleasant. The food was a bit different and definitely delicious. The spinach salad with blueberries and goat cheese and excellent dressing was wonderful (as was the duck entree).

We don't visit the same restaurant twice in two weeks, but we made an exception for the Copper Door!

“Best Restaurant in Western Carolina and North Ga area!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

I have NEVER been disappointed with a meal or service at the Copper Door! Food is awesome and I love having Bananas Foster made at my table. A MUST visit restaurant when you are in the area. This is the type of restaurant you would find in a big city, not a cozy little town, so we are extremely lucky to have it here!

“Great Food, fantastic service”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

While in the mountains of Georgia, we met friends for dinner in the small town of Hayesville, NC. We did not expect to find such marvelous food in the middle of nowhere! I had the Surf & Turf and it was probably the best I have had. My husband had the Tuna Ahi and he said it was perfect! We really enjoyed our food and our time with our friends. This was fine dining at it's best!

“Never disappointed”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The ambiance, food, and service are always good at the Copper Door. The fish specials are usually outstanding. One member of our party had the pasta with crawfish and raved about it. The desserts are always good if you have room for them.

“Wonderful Anniversary Dinner”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

We recently visited the Hayesville area for a vacation near the lakes and best roads in the region. The Crane Creek Vineyards recommended a visit to The Copper Door for our anniversary dinner. We weren't disappointed. Tucked away off the city square, the restaurant was brimming with activity on our visit. Once we were escorted to our table, we were delighted by the wood interior and quiet surroundings. The drinks and food were excellent as was the service. The duck entree was fabulous and not what you'd expect to find in the area. We finished our special meal with a banana foster prepared table side. Lovely evening at a lovely restaurant.
