Cypress Inn has always had a great location on the river. In the past the menu has been a little convoluted, but this visit it was great. I definatly recommend trying it out.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Tuscaloosa. They have the best smoked chicken with white sauce. I have never been disappointed with anything. If you like bread pudding, you will not be disappointed with theirs. The view is also very relaxing.

I believe that Cypress Inn is the best restaurant in Tuscaloosa. The menu, food, service, and atmosphere are all outstanding. Prices are very reasonable for the quality you receive.

Over the years, I've been to Cypress Inn many times. And, I've never been disappointed with any aspect of the establishment. The view (overlooking the Black Warrior River)is relaxing, the food (be it steak, seafood, or a chicken dish) is always wonderful. The staff is very pleasant and helpful, start to finish. One of the little delights there, is the... More

Make sure you request a table by the window so you can see the beautiful Black Warrior River. Their Cypress Inn Smoked Chicken is a great appetizer with it's white bbq sauce, however we thought the Fried Green Tomatoes were a bit lacking. The Catfish and Shrimp Pasta were the two best entries from our party of eight. Our server... More

Although a very rainy night, we ate a delicious meal here. My son ordered a swordfish special with Gouda grits on the side. He ate every bite. It was a little pricey at $24 but it was an occasion. I ordered the sirloin salad. The meat was perfectly prepared but the salad was overdressed. Next time I would order the... More

A unique experience for a first timer to the Cypress Inn is the view. There are markers to show how high the river has risen in years past. It is interesting and has great , fresh food.

My first taste of Southern hospitality - and more to the point southern food. I played it safe and took the recommendation from my host, fried green tomatoes to start and a main of catfish - good choice. Based by the side of a very large river it provides a great setting for dinner.
