Love this place. It’s such a family atmosphere with the staff. They offer half sizes on meals which is awesome and I always leave full on the half size. The bangin shrimp and chicken dishes are my favorites.

First time eating here. Followed reviews and it did not disappoint ! We had the Chicken Ashley and the Brown Sugar Encrusted Pork Chops. Both were excellent. Most certainly will be back again.

Wife and I stopped here for dinner while passing through town. Superb meal, in every way. Ambience is unique, although we would have preferred not to eat in the bar. Local craft beer was good but best of all it was served in a frosted...mug. For dinner, I had the Bourbon Street Mahi and my wife had the Katsu Chicken. Both were unique - slightly spicy/very tasty. For dessert we shared a hot brownie with ice cream. The menu selection is extensive and we’ve already picked out what we’ll get when we return. TIPS: Call ahead to reserve a spot for a cosy room inside the main house. Also, since portion sizes are generous, suggest ordering 1/2 size entrees lso you have plenty of room for dessert. Finally, ask for Noah to serve you - he’s terrific.More

We loved this restaurant; but where do I start? COVID: This restaurant follows the social distancing guidelines in a kind, caring and respectful way. The placed tables in a way that makes everyone enjoy; but at the same time respect others space. Food: Every plate...they served us became an instant favorite... where have you heard about Kungfu Tot’s appetizer or Bourbon St. Mahi?, both must amazingly rich and yummy. How about their bread? The choice of dishes keep everyone happy. For instance they have a dish that one of my party tried, the Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese and he finished it and commented that it was done to perfection. Not a remark he makes commonly. I could go on; But just writing this makes my mouth water. This restaurant is an instant favorite and a jewel. Thank you for offering and keeping this rich balance especially needed during this difficult time.More

Met a friend of ours for dinner and wine and Montero's did not disappoint. First, the wine prices are excellent. We had a Napa Valley Cab, the price at the restaurant is the same price as in Total Wine - not the usually 3-400% markup....Service, despite COVID was fine, the meals were all excellent. Scallops cooked right with the proper sear, other entrees were very good. Overall, not many great options in Elizabeth City other than Montero's and a few others - can't go wrong here.More

Montero's is offering take out soup right now. Yesterday's chick pea curry was so good we went back again today. We got the vegan vegetable-just as delicious! Call ahead and they will have a quart waiting for you. It's divine.

This is my second review of Montero's. As I stated in my previous review this is a class act. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. Portions are ample. Our server, Shelby, gave outstanding service. It was a joy to have her as our server....This restaurant is always a great place to dine. If you come to Elizabeth City be sure to dine here as you won't be disappointed.More

I really don't know. It's not really a burger and sandwich kind of place. I had crab cakes and my husband had prime rib and it was delicious.
