Wonderful. Such a great restaurant...and in Hayesville ! We are vacationing here from No. Fla. Will be back in April, Aug. & Oct. Plz include us in your E-mails! We would gladly spread the word. Our waiter implied the restaurant was part of a chain. Which association? We would gladly enjoy being part of your customer base. Meal prices very good. Wine list prices-seemed to be a very low markup-superb ! Quality of food , service, ambience-wonderful. Wish we had brought our finery to match the restaurant's!
Many thanks to server/host Steven and especially the kitchen/creators of such a lovely dining experience. Judy & Gary

This restaurant in the small town of Hayesville, North Carolina is absolutely world class. We had dinner there this past week and everything from a drink in the bar before dinner to the decadent desserts after dinner was A plus!! We have been there many times, as we have a summer home in the mountains; and we have never had a bad meal there. If you are in the vicinity of western NC, take the time to find the Copper Door. You'll be glad you did.

Excellent repeat offerings and new items. We had a blissful meal of all appetizers! This is one of the best restaurants in the southeast.

Difficult to comment simply because everything was really good. Ambiance, service (knowledgeable ) and food. Best steaks in a long time and great wines.
We are fom UK and looking for a good meal with friends. We weren't disappointed.

Reservation was made on Open Table. We were seated promptly at the appointed time. Accommodations were made for a motorized chair for one of my guests. Our server was well versed on the menu and specials. We all started with the red pepper bisque. It was served hot and was delicious. All 3 of us had filets--cooked perfectly and tender. The sides were great -- baked potato, sweet potato mash and grits as well as the vegetables. Will definitely be back. Wait staff was attentive without being obtrusive.

My daughter asked if just her and I could go out to eat to spend time together. I have been wanting to take her to the Copper Door for a while. I made a reservation and we went. She ordered the filet and she said it was the best steak she has ever had. I had the prime rib that was on special and it was great as well. We ordered the Creme Brulee for desert and it was also amazing. It is the same great food and great service every time that we go. I love the Copper Door and would advise anyone and everyone to try it. If you live in Hayesville and have never tried it then you are truly missing out. Thank you again to the staff at the Copper Door for making a great memory for my daughter and I.

This was my first time at the Copper Door, and it definitely will not be the last. My family and I were celebrating my sister's retirement, and we had a fantastic time. The food was out of this world, and the bottle of wine we had was one of the best Merlot's I've tasted. Our server was wonderful, and we could not have asked for a better server, or have had a better time than the one we had at the Copper Door. The whole experience was fantastic and my family and I can't wait to dine there again.
