Server was beyond slow & forgetful. Ordered a Med Rare steak. Completely over cooked and hard to bite. Returned it for a re do. Instead of a whole new plate, returned with only new steak, no sides. Still a bit overcooked again, but tolerated it....Others said their meal was okay, not great. Won’t be returning.More

I wanted to see the Museum of the Albemarle and I wasn't expecting any culinary majesty while visiting Elizabeth City. I WAS WRONG! The food at the Cypress Creek Grill is at least a six! There is a chef back there! Linda and I were...late for lunch and early for dinner, so oft times one doesn't expect too much. Let me tell you, Linda's Sea Scallops were sensational, and my New Orleans Barbequed Shrimp was prime delish. The homemade yeast rolls were superb as dipsters in the tangy sauce for the shrimp. The salads were fresh and zesty, and the clam chowder, you must try! Not that familiar with Elizabeth City, we could see the water from this nice eatery, but the service and the food was exemplary.More

Always a good spot to grab lunch. Good prices and great food. Haven’t been for dinner but lunch is laid back and mellow most times. Our server was friendly and made sure we were taken care of

We went in for my birthday because I typically order the lobster ravioli with crab & asparagus and have LOVED it in the past. We ordered the SOB appetizer- it was wonderful. Service was slow & there weren’t many patrons in the restaurant. There appeared...to be plenty of waitstaff working. My salad was delivered about 4 minutes before my main dish & the salad was lackluster at best. Lettuce mix, one cherry tomato, 2 thin cucumber slices & 2 small rings of onion. Unfortunately this visit I was very disappointed in the lobster ravioli. The dish looked good, however to say it was disappointing was an understatement. The crab on top did not taste fresh and was not the lump white crabmeat I remembered from before. It looked & tasted like canned claw meat at best. The sauce had little taste, the asparagus was fine, but the ravioli didn’t taste fresh like it did before. I have had this dish multiple times and this was the first time I just didn’t care for it. Not sure if they are substituting lower cost ingredients or cutting corners, but I won’t order it again. Hubby enjoyed his oyster po’boy, but given how substandard my dinner was it is doubtful we will return soon.More

Don’t get mushrooms on the salad! I ordered one of the specials and it came with a salad. I asked that they not put onions on the salad I but I was fine with the mushrooms and other ingredients. I was beyond horrified when I...saw the most disgustingly filthy mushrooms in the salad. They were covered with dirt and there was obviously no attempt to clean them. I really wanted to send it back , but we were sitting there for so long, I figured that it would just further delay my meal.More

We had a late lunch a few weeks ago. Our first time there. I ordered fried Shrimp, the breading on shrimp didn't stay on the shrimp which gave me a good look of the freeze burn shrimp I was given. Shrimp had no taste and...just seeing the freeze burn wasn't the best. Waitress never came by so I cut around. Cost was $19.99 was a waste of money. My husband has to run her down for the bill. All in all experience was very poor. We drove about one hour and half so was very. disappointing. Right by the water and frozen shrimp. Wow!More

Took my graduating Coast Guard son and GF because of the rating. the décor and appearance was more like Mel's Diner type, nothing like you'd expect a #3 rated restaurant to be The appetizer of crab dip needed salt badly. He ordered a ribeye steak,...she and I split the Rockfish, Bacon Wrapped Scallop & Shrimp Combo. The rockfish tasted like a fillet that had been left in a cooler for 3 days, very fishy smelling/tasting and tough. The scallops were watery and the baked potato tasted boiled. The ribeye had no salt or seasoning, very bland. very disappointed - Wendy's $5 biggie bag would have been betterMore

Everything was just off tonight. Based on reviews - we chose this place. Not a good night for staff. We seemed to be invisible for the first 10 minutes - no one even acknowledged us. Food was okay - crab cakes were touted as cakes...with little breading - I think they were almost all bread. Timing of food delivery to table was off as well. Sorry, must of been a bad day to stop in.More

We were seated immediately, hostess was pleasant and server arrived to take our drink and appetizer order quickly. Crab and Srimp dip was good, could have used a little bit of cayenne or red pepper. Our entrees were amazing, hubby got bourbon ribeye and he...said it was phenomenal. I ordered the bacon wrapped scallops and crab cakes, they were amazing. Our other party guest got a different seafood platter with Sweet potato fries and was also very pleased. Service was on point and an overall pleasant dinner and experience.More

We greatly enjoyed our lunch at this lovely restaurant in beautiful Elizabeth City. Every employee we talked to - and particularly our server Haley - was very friendly and went out of their way to provide exceptional service. The food was delicious and reasonably priced,...and the atmosphere was charming. I'd go out of my way to visit again in the futureMore

My wife and I stopped here for lunch after a visit to the Museum of Albemarle, down the street. What a great pair these two venues make! We enjoyed everything about our lunch: authentically friendly service by and conversation with Isabella, terrific locally-made beer (Ghost...Harbor IPA), and unique food (crab cakes and salad with walnut dressing). Since we’ll be moving to the area within the next two years, we look forward to returning and becoming regulars.More

We went to this restaurant on a Saturday evening. It was quite busy. But our service was quick and waitress friendly, prompt. The calamari was excellent! It was served with a sweet sour sauce instead of the usual marinara sauce. It was good but personally...I prefer the marinara. We ordered the cypress grill platter. It was excellent and very generous portions. Overall we had a very pleasant dining experience. I would certainly recommend this restaurant. I also plan on eating again soon at Cypress Creek Grill.More

I relocated recently to EC from Ohio and was looking for a nice place to dine with my family downtown and this place was recommended to me by a neighbor. So, without reservations on a Saturday evening we were served and seated immediately when they...opened at 5:00. This restaurant had everything we were looking for: great location downtown with a water view, great atmosphere with an exceptional staff very reasonable prices and a terrific menu selection! We will be returning in the future.More
