This was our first visit and we went based on the reviews. The restaurant is lovely, cozy, and inviting. We were greeted at several levels by very friendly staff. Our waitress was very attentive. You are served a small basket of bread and cornbread muffins that were delectable. Many of the dishes have half-portion prices which is great. The fish... More

We dined at Montero's on a Friday evening in January. There was a banquet in progress, and the restaurant was crowded. But we had a reservation and were seated as soon as we arrived. There is a large and varied menu to select from, and serving portions are sized properly. the food was delicious and the service was excellent.

This is one of the best places to go if you are in Elizabeth City. The food is always delicious and the service is good overall. Sometimes it seems they are a bit short on staff as it can take a while to get a check or get cashed out to leave. They don't seem to mind kids either!

My wife brought us to this restaurant after stopping here once before and having a great experience. I got the 50/50 burger, which is a combination of beef and crushed bacon and it was incredible! Also had the creamed spinach which was the best I have ever had. My wife had the pork chops which were also very tasty. The... More

Absolutely wonderful dining! Enjoyed grilled salmon and New York strip. A full menu of delicious dishes offered. We met one of the owners, and learned the history of the large house converted to the Resturant The service was tops and dedicated.

All that title to say that this was a much needed break. Montero's was fabulous! Our waitress was great and the food was amazing. Everything ordered was perfect! The owner came to check on us and treated us as if we had been one of his normal customers. If ever in Elizabeth City please stop by.

I can not speak highly enough about Montero's. Their menu is superb, their serving sizes are filling, and the food is delicious. I have really enjoyed both their seafood and beef entries, and the Brunch offerings are excellent.
