Good food

Montero's is available for some fine dinning in the local area. The food has always been good when I've eaten there. However, sometimes the wait for the food is a little long but is always good when you get it.

Come to this place often and they never dissappoint. There is a good variety of food offered on the menu and the choices of side items allows you to have many different items from salad to loaded baked potato. The prices are very reasonable and the service is always great. This will one of your new favorite places.

The restaurant is divided into smaller dining rooms for a more intimate feel and quieter dining. The menu and wine list are very nice and the food was excellent! The service and wait staff were splendid. It would be perfect place for a special occasion, celebration for a couple, a family or a large group. The night we dined there,... More

This place is a little tucked away but definitely worth finding it! If you like Prime Rib, definitely try it! it was served and cooked perfect to my liking and tasted awesome!

Met with friends for lunch, and was very impressed from the minute we pulled into the parking lot. The converted home was wonderful to visit, with the many rooms that made meals semi-private. Our server returned to our table several times, never rushing us, as we were too busy to browse the menu as we were catching up with friends!... More

I am giving it 1 star because I believe there is a good place to eat somewhere there. The quality seemed like it was good but for a Friday dinner service they really didn't have their A game. We felt pressured and rushed for drink and appetizer orders we didn't have a chance to read the menu. My wife and... More

I grew up in this small NC town where the standard fare has always been fried seafood and otherwise pretty bland fare. Montero's is a culinary gem. The restaurant owners converted a large old home into this quaint restaurant and they have maintained the beautiful grounds around the home. The food is top notch and Amy, our server, was great.

This was a great family dining experience. It's a really homey atmosphere and the people that work there are so hospitable and happy. The shrimp and grits were outstanding! I also ordered one cucumber margarita on the rocks and let me tell you, it was the best margarita I've ever had! After dinner we enjoyed sitting in the rocking chairs... More

This is, probably, the best dining in the city. It came strongly recommended by the hotel staff and it was easy to see why. The facility is divided for dining and drinking. It appears to be converted from an old plantation house. The food is expertly prepared, tasty and hot. The wait for seating is not long but reservations are... More
