We chose this restaurant based on Tripadvisor reviews. It is in almost every respect admirable. Well appointed and furnished, attentive and friendly staff, effective air-conditioning, comfortable seating, a decent and good-value wine list and no piped music, which for me is a major plus. The only real downer was what should be the restaurant’s raison d’être: the food. It was... More

We found Montero's Restaurant while lingering at a B&B in Elizabeth City on our way to OBX. Our hosts made our reservation after we checked the favorable reviews for the restaurant on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. It seemed very popular with locals, which usually indicates a good restaurant that has stood the test of time. The property,... More

Came here for dinner for my dad's birthday. Waited over an hour before we got seated. They were supposed to sing happy birthday to my dad and forgot. Took forever to get the food. and it was nothing to write home about. Will not return.

We visited Montero's early on a Saturday night with a party of ten (four adults and six children) and had no trouble getting a table and enjoyed a wonderful experience. We called in advance to make a reservation as well as check on their ability to accommodate our daughter's gluten allergy. The hostess answered all of our questions on the... More

Montero's is our number 1 goto restaurant for consistently good food and good service. A little pricey but the quality of the food is worth the little extra $$.

When we looked online at the best places to eat in Elizabeth City, this place ranked as number one, so we decided to give it a go. We were so happy we did! My boyfriend has a severe allergy to dairy,... More

I had the crabcakes with a baked potato and salad because it was to go and I'd walked from my hotel. The crabcakes were well seasoned & tasty but more breaded than I'm used to. The staff was really friendly and my order came up quickly. I had two small issues. The menu was a little outdated online as there... More
