Montero's always has a nice brunch on Sunday. Their menu is very accommodating to gluten free people, and they will happily prepare just about anything you want. The service is always good. On a recent visit I had a special of the day, "pork chops, in a balsamic reduction" very nice, as was the wilted spinach. yum yum

What a great place! Birthday dinner for 2 on a golf getaway weekend. Both pasta dishes were excellent, nice bread selection, great beer (Black Radish from local OBX brewery), nice wine, and wonderful desert. Our server, Mandy, was very professional and a sheer joy-she even gave my wife a personal tour of the house. One of the nicest evenings out... More

Have been here a couple of times now. This past weekend the food was better than before - the waitor (Chris) was attentive and prompt and my family really enjoyed everything. My granddaughters (ages 7 and 11) left nothing on their plates. The salmon was especially tasty.

We went to Montero's this past Tuesday and enjoyed the $5 "tini Tuesday." Our waitress was very attentive and knew the menu inside and out. I wound up selecting the Gingered Salmon and was not disappointed. The appetizer sampler was also delicious and more than enough for our table of four. This is far and away the best restaurant in...

My name is Mark and i used to work for Andy and Karin Montero. I am now bartending and serving at an unnamed restaurant in Iowa. I cannot express how much i miss the profesionalism of the owners, management, and staff of Montero's. I have worked in the food service industry for over 15 years and have never before seen... More

The ribs are great. The staff is friendly. Andy (the owner) is very civic minded and an asset to our area.

Elizabeth City is a very small town. This is about as nice as it gets in terms of a quality, sit down restaurant for this town. You can dress up or down to show up here. The food is quality and homemade and the menu is relatively broad offering something for almost everyone. The food style has a southern flare.... More

Excellent service, superb food and wonderful atmosphere! We are never disappointed at this restaurant! The menu has a wide assortment of meals and you can choose a large or smaller portion that carries either a smaller expense or somewhat larger one, but the most important thing is the quality of the dining experience! You will know you are in for... More

I went to Montero's with a fairly large group on a Sunday for brunch. Not only did we not have to wait for our food very long but boy was it amazing. I, myself, had the crunchy french toast. Being a "healthy alternative" to french toast I assumed it would be okay but not fantastic. Boy was I wrong. Best... More

Being a local we are fortunate to be able to go to this restaurant frequently. We highly recommend this restaurant to all of our friends and relatives coming into town. The food is always good. The service is excellent and the management is always on hand to make sure your experience is enjoyed. Can't go wrong by going here.
