Well well well, the Cypress Inn has a new owner. It's the old owner's ex-wife, if that tells you anything. I have come to the Cypress inn a couple times per year for about 15 years now. Drew Henson had always kept up a great staff and a great building as well as high-quality food for 30 years. And now... More

I ate at Cypress Inn today for lunch and the had the Country Fried Pork Loin. It was tremendous. The Vegetable of the day (grilled Zucchini) was very great as well.

From the food to the service my family and I have always enjoyed everything about this place! The catfish and smoked chicken are my favorites! Ohhh the muffins they serve are wonderful as well!

Cypress Inn has a diverse southern menu including chicken with white barbecue sauce, fried catfish and other fish of the day. Recently had their Shrimp Cypress Inn. It was a baked pasta dish and included plenty of shrimp cooked to perfection. Everything on their menu is good, but my favorite dessert is the Bread Pudding. Divine!! Their rolls and muffins,...

We have been eating at Cypress Inn for years and could always rely on it for a nice lunch or dinner that seemed fresh and relatively healthy. That no longer seems to be the case. It has never been what I would consider fine dining, but the overall quality of the food has gone down. Things are not cooked properly... More

We had very good crabcakes here some time back, and looked forward to having them again, since they aren't often on the menu. Before, most of the crabcakes was crab meat. This time there was hardly any crab in the crabcakes, and they tasted like salmon, barely edible. Cypress Inn shouldn't put their name on these, they were so bad.... More

The restaurant is located on the Warrior River. Boats gliding up and down the river gives a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere to the dining area. The food is very good--especially the muffins and rolls. There is a variety of food choices on the menu. You need to call ahead. It gets quite busy The restaurant has a large room for... More

I can remember a time when getting a table at Cypress on a Sunday was impossible. Today our party of eight was sat within in 20 minutes, after that it all went downhill. First of all today was a birthday luncheon for my mother-in-law. We spent the first 15 minutes wondering where our drinks were, then spent the next 15... More

The selection of happy hour food and drinks is outstanding. I have been on several occasions, and the service is hit or miss which is a little bit frustrating. Will still be visiting for the absolutely amazing bread, muffins, and fried pickles!
