Excellent food and service. Bobby Plough did a fantastic job when he owned Cypress Creek. Very passionate about the quality of his food. Now he is enjoying retirement and the new owners are carrying out the same quality and service.

Dined here recently with another couple for the first time and it was a treat! The food is good (ribeye steak was perfect) as is the service. My husband had a combination plate and was not thrilled with the crab cakes (and he told the waitress). A few minutes later the manager (Eric(?)) came out to apologize and tell us... More

On a recent business trip to Elizabeth City, NC my traveling companion and I came up with the common quandary of 'where to eat'. As is the case in most cities, this can be challenging on a Monday night as several options aren't open for business. We were hoping to find something on the water to enjoy the scenic beauty...

My wife and I + 2 teenage grandsons made reservations for dinner Fri July 15th - so glad we did. Our table was ready on arrival. Our server, Danielle was knowledgeable - explained the specials and answered all questions. We ordered a variety of food - appetizer, burger and one of the specials - all excellent. I ordered the corvina... More

Our car club has been to this restaurant in the past and it was super. We called ahead and had 15 people. They put us in a private side room which was great. The waitress did a fantastic job handling our orders, with several couples checks and a few individual orders. The beer was cold and the lunch was fantastic... More

After a number of tries with the new ownership we have been disappointed in the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff.

A new owner has moved in. He has brought his sous chef son with him from the OBX (Outer Banks NC for those that don't know). Still the same great menu, but his son is bringing some of the OBX flair for seafood. Try it you might like it.

We stopped in Elizabeth City on the way to OBX. With this being our first visit to Elizabeth City, we headed to the waterfront to explore. The waterfront is very, very quiet. We found this little place, as there were several cars close by. The restaurant is in an old storefront location and although decorated, lacks in ambiance. Floor tiles... More

My wife and I stopped here on our way from Virginia Beach to Edenton. Had a great lunch. Food was exceptional and service was great. Restaurant was spotlessly clean, even the restrooms. Had rockfish and lobster wrap. Both were on the daily special menu and both were wonderful. Wish we could have come back here for another meal but it... More

Recommended by our B&B hosts who kindly made us a reservation. Staff was welcoming, nice view of the harbor. Open so you do hear a lively sound from a popular restaurant but you quickly acclimate. Love the petite portions option and the daily menu choices. Great seafood. Will look forward to coming again.

Thank unhgal
