The Copper Door
Awesome!This was the second time I had eaten at the Copper Door, and both times were nothing less than outstanding. I was very impressed with the food and service once again. I had the pot roast and my boyfriend had the crawfish tortellini, and they were superb. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone as a fine dining restaurant.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for our anniversary.Great place for our anniversary. Food was outstanding. Service great.

Yet we have friends that sometimes we just go out with for friends night and that is definitely my favorite restaurant. I love the food, although I cook a lot of different cuisines at home, sometimes it's nice to go out and enjoy someone else doing the cooking!
Looking forward to the May pairing and having an enjoyable evening.

The waitress seemed concerned that we would ask and said that she would take care of it. We said to make sure that she included the gravy on our pot roast and she said that she would also add extra gravy. When we got home there was NO gravy, not even the gravy that we initially had. This made our subsequent meal VERY dry.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe soup - wild mushroom bisqueThe soup - wild mushroom bisque - was so yummy! The fish of the day was very well seasoned.
Great place for a date or special occasion. Seating is in close proximity to others, so it isn't private, but the ambiance is very pleasing (we sat in the main room, just next to a rock wall with fire place).
Staff were pleasant and attention paid to diners.

Bill Coffman3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly Outstanding!My wife and I wanted to celebrate our anniverary at a local restaurant for a change.
Wow! The Copper Door was amazing! We thought we've dined at all the best places there was over the years.
The food and service were outstanding as was the nice classical low level background music. It was definitely the intimate place we were looking for and the staff made sure the flowers I ordered were placed on the best table in the house.
Not every day all the best qualities needed in a fine dining restaurant align at once.
The Open Table website really made it easy to reserve a table and order flowers etc.
Needless to say, we'll be inventing more special occasions just to go back!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe never miss a chance toWe never miss a chance to dine at The Copper Door when in Hayesville.
