Was here for dinner tonight January 23, and I had the Flat Iron steak special with a blue cheese sauce, deep fried asparagus, and sauteed sliced brussels sprouts. The steak was cooked perfectly - just as ordered - medium rare. The sauce however was just a bit too strong on the blue cheese. The brussels sprouts would have been better... More

We are new to the area and experienced an awesome dining experience. From the welcoming atmosphere to the service and finally the excellent meal, all expectations were exceeded.

Food and Service was excellent. Love the atmosphere and grounds. This place would be absolutely excellent if they could expand their parking and most importantly move the smoking area away from the front entrance. Having 5-10 people smoking area right in the front door takes away from that great restaurant experience.

Meh. After going to Montero's on the passionate recommendation of friends in the area we were surprised our service was both poor and slow and the food was just OK. Our server ignored us and allowed us to finish our app tray and drain our drinks without even offering refill. She never offered any awareness that we had been waiting... More

after a very poor dinner the previous night in Fayetteville NC, I was very happy to enjoy a great meal in the small town of Elizabeth City NC. Met with a local company for dinner for seven - and everyone was happy with all aspects of the meal. I enjoyed a shrimp and flounder fish taco plate that was well... More

I've been coming to Montero's for years, and I have to say--it really is the best restaurant in Elizabeth City! Excellent service, amazing seafood, appetizers, desserts, and a fantastic bar. The prices are what you'd pay at a chain sit-down restaurant, but the quality is many times better. Everything is homemade, the owners and staff are friendly and genuine, and... More

Our son's wedding took place in nearby Hertford, NC. We live in Michigan. We called most of the restaurants nearby and chose Montero's in Elizabeth City, NC. We worked with the owner, Andy, over the phone and through e-mail. Everything was taken care of very professionally even though we had to make 3-4 changes before our arrival. Andy and his... More
