I am a cajun from south Louisiana. This diamond opened in 2008. If this restaurant was in Baton Rouge, it would rank in the top ten restaurants in town. The two crawfish dishes are authentic. The Friday seafood gumbo is teriffic. Steaks and fish items are excellent. Desserts like bananas foster, bread pudding and creme Brule are as good as... More

We dined here with several friends, from both in and out of the area, last week right after the local snowstorm. Dinner reservations were ready and we were seated right by the fireplace. We all really enjoyed the various meal selections and I can attest to the quality and flavor of both the HUGE Pork Chop and the 16 Oz... More

I took my wife for her birthday, along with our children. The food was amazing as always. We are local and we love the copper door. We have recommended it to some of our out of town friends and they loved it as well. The steaks are amazing along with everything else that is on the menu. Please give it... More

You will never be disappointed when you visit this place where the owner chef inspects every plate that comes out of the kitchen

Had the great experience of dining here with a group of friends, I was very pleased. Table was ready at the specified time. The cocktails and wine were top shelf, the service staff perfect and the meal excellent. The menu was excellent and I chose the Maui-Maui grilled. Done to perfection, seasoned perfectly and the sides were very, very good.... More

Pricey but wonder food and service. I love the lamb chops. The popovers in place of bread does wonders for me

Had dinner this past Wednesday. At 38.00 dollars a plate , I was very disappointed with our meal. My wife's salad was brown to start with! When my steak and scallop came out it was supposed to be a casino scallop which was more like a miniature scallop. My scallop was raw! After telling the waitress, she took my RAW... More

We had an excellent dinner at The Copper Door last night. Our table was next to the fireplace (gas logs) which added nice ambiance. Even though the restaurant was full, it was not loud. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We had the Fruits de Mer and bison steak. Both dishes were prepared as described. We did... More

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.
