The Copper Door has the best food I have ever had. The steaks are great, the service is excellent. The atmosphere is elegant and cozy. All this right downtown in the wonderful small town of Hayesville, NC.

Just Go. It's amazing! Our family of 11 was handled as easily as the tables for two around us. Just such a surprise to have this level of food and service tucked away in the mountains!

We went to the Copper Door for our anniversary. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. The reason for the 4 stars is the place is completely void of any ambience period. Not the place for a romantic evening. Almost no wall decor...More

Upper end restaurant in Hayesville, NC. Went based on recommendation from friends who lived in the area. Great steaks, prime rib and I had the Fruit de Mer. Even the drinks were great. The rum drink was a little too sweet.

Meals of all in our party were high-quality. Restaurant was decorated elegantly for Christmas. Service was efficient and knowledgeable. Food was all perfectly prepared. We might have wished for more choices but this wasn't NYC after all. And from appetizers to dessert, it was great!

We always host Thanksgiving in Hiawassee GA and a tradition has also become to go to the Cooper Door prior to Thanksgiving. This restaurant is a gem nestled within these very small villages within the mountains.

I don't know - and they are not marked or indicated on the menu. I would imagine that a call to the restaurant would uncover this info.
