That was surprising for such a large restaurant on a busy night. Food quality was very good but a little slow. We would go back if we were in the area.

A converted southern house has just the right ambiance for two or twenty two, with a larger meeting area or intimate booths in rooms individually named and decorated. We ate in the Clementine - deep terra cotta walls, electric "fire" in the fireplace - and enjoyed every bite of the perfectly cooked roast beef, crab cakes, sweet potato and zucchini... More

Give 5 stars not only for service, politeness, and atmosphere.But the chef who prepares the dishes. Food top rate as travelers we eat out alot and I would compare the skill of the chef and the quality of the food on the menu as well as the buffet to that of some of the finest restaurants that I have dined...

Wonderful place for dinner. Great appetizer of Black Bean Cakes and our dinners were delicious. Service was great and had a nice atmosphere. They have a small plate and a large plate for most of the items on their menu. The small plate is quite a portion so that is what I chose. Enjoyed it very much. Will go back... More

Thought this place would be a nice dinner. It was not! Waitress was very attentative and answered all questions and took care of our needs. Then my prime rib came out. It was leftover from the day before. It was cold and the fats set up hard. This won't happen if it were cooked that day. Didn't even pour some... More

Shrimp and grits for brunch. Excellent gravy/sauce. half order with 4 shrimp was plenty. I recommend a side order of eggs over-easy to place atop the grits for some added richness. Warning: Wine / alcohol is sold ONLY after noon on Sunday, after church is out of course. Don't want any drunks in church !

We had not been able to get reservation two years ago when we were in Elizabeth City so we made reservations ahead on line. The menu is extensive with many great items to choose. My wife and daughter were very happy with their meals but my prime rid was not flavorful and was watery. I sent it back and not... More

We love this place. Food is great and it is family owned. The menu has many different options for everyone. Every once in awhile you will see the owners walk around and visit with patrons. The food here will meet or exceed your expectations.

Montero's food is amazing!!! My friends and myself chose this restaurant for its reviews. Even with the amazing reviews, we were blown away! I recommend the fish tacos with shrimp... Sounds simple, but they do them well! Shoot, order anything... I tasted several dishes and they were all good!
