We drove to Elizabeth City researching my genealogy. It was nearing dinner time and several of the restaurants IN TOWN were closed. As we drove around, we saw a sign saying, "wanted--hungry people" and the OPEN sign was on. We saw the large selection of entrees and side dishes on the buffet table so we chose that buffet. We started... More

I've eaten here for breakfast and lunch quite a few times, and have been quite pleased overall. Breakfast is the cheapest in town. $5.25 for 2 eggs, bacon, grits, toast. $4.99 for 2 big pancakes and bacon/sausage. Lunch is an all you can eat buffet, $7.99 weekdays and $11.99 Sundays. It always has at least 3 meats, 4-5 veggies, bread,... More

We like going on Tuesday as it is the chicken pot pie. Fried chicken is excellent. The buffet changes every day which includes desert.

We came here on a Sunday after church. We had a group of 10 and the lady that seated us rolled here eyes so many times I thought they were going to get stuck in the back of her head. Sad thing is I really think this was the owner... The entire time she pointed and whispered to one of... More

If you're looking for food like your Grandma served after church on Sunday's, look no further... you have found it here. For the Sunday buffet, there is standing room only. You will find foods like: Fried Chicken, Turkey, Dressing & Mashed potatoes, Ham, Roast, New England Clam Chowder, Corn bread, Candied Apples, to name a few we've seen over the... More

Stopped off in Elizabeth City for one night and spotted this place as we drove to our motel. After travelling down the east coast from NY this was the best meal we've had in days. We all had the buffet and excellent value for money and great choices. The fried chicken was delicious. Waitress excellent too. Would thoroughly recommend this... More

If you want some really good home style cooking, the lunch buffet at the Circle II is hard to beat. I first went there for the great barbeque and fried chicken, and I found the other food on the buffet to be just as good. There is a good variety of items, some of which you don't find in other...
