Good food, huge portions

Many of the menu items had half orders and full orders. I sent there with family. I ordered a half order and my brother ordered a full order. I would fully recommend a HALF order for one person. The food was great and the martinis even greater.

Great staff here and I believe the best place to get a meal in town. I have tried a wide variety of things on their menu and everything was delicious.

They have full and petite serving sizes of most entrees. They also have a varied desert menu. I went early in the evening on a weekday, but it was filling up fast by the time I left. Obviously a favorite of the locals too.

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.

I enjoy dining at Montero's whether for a casual meal or something more formal. You will never feel under dressed or over. Great food; friendly management. Great addition to Elizabeth City.

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
