In town for an informal wedding, we had made lunch reservations at The Cypress Inn. Due to travel problems, we had to reschedule the reservations three times, & the staff was always pleasant & accomodating on the phone. Ultimately, we had to cancel the reservation, but the staff suggested we just show up & we would still be able to... More

My first visit to the Cypress Inn. In town visiting friends and my husband suggested as he had been there previously. We were advised of an approximate wait of 45 minutes, so we sat at the bar for drinks and also had fried green tomatoes which were good. For dinner, we were seated next to the window with a spectacular... More

This restaurant has been here since I was in college in 84 and still is a favorite for families celebrating milestones. They have expanded to a new area where you can rent out the glass building with porch on the back to entertain a wedding group, corporate event or sorority gathering overlooking the river. Food is good, consistent, reliable and... More

Been here several times before. They continue to amaze me with a fantastic view of the Black Warrior river; their great servers and their wonderful dishes. Simply the best!

Had lunch here with friends. Good selection of choices on the large menu. Had two appetizers, lunch for four, one iced tea, three waters. $96 including the tip. Have had better food and service elsewhere for less money.

We tend to go here to celebrate a special moment. It is beside the Black Warrior River and we often see tow boats passing. The sunsets are just wonderful. My husband likes several dishes. He always orders hoppin john as a side. I always order mustard greens as one of my sides. I recommend the salmon. The service is generally... More

Cypress Inn is a great place to eat in Tuscaloosa. The smoked chicken and white BBQ sauce is delicious. The fried green tomatoes are also very good. This restaurant overlooks the Black Warrior River so you get a great view with your meal.

We went for an evening meal as a family gathering after at funeral. The place had windows on two sides with a view of the river, but we were not seated near those windows. The reservation was for 17, but only 15 places were set. Since those two had 2 small children, they were seated at a near-by table. With... More

The place has a great view and the food is very good. The shrimp was great and the prices are a little high but worth it.
