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

Everything was top notch from the beer to the dessert! I recommend the bacon scallops, and the veggies were perfectly cooked! The salad was awesome! And the dessert, praline, pecan pie was definitely a happy ending!🙂

Beautiful eatery located in a beautiful city. Great staff very helpful well spaced beautifully decorated dining area. The steak was delish the lobster ravioli was lacking quite a bit. Food was prepared and delivers very quickly. I would certainly call it a good meal.

Food was good, service was very poor.. there were only 4 tables including us in the restaurant, and 2 of them were almost done. I had to ask for my drink 3 times, another at our table ordered another beer and never received it.. oh...and instead of bringing my salad out before the meal, I got it with my meal.. someone needs some retraining I believe..More

While the atmosphere in Cypress Creek is nothing to write home about the Rockfish more than makes up for it! The room is noisy with lots of hard surfaces to bounce noise around and we happened in while they were serving a large group of...boaters that made it a bit loud. That said, we had a good dinner, sampling the rockfish, which we highly recommend, the crab cakes, which we do not, and the potato salad which is some of the best we’ve tried. Give the SOBs a try, too. The service was friendly and helpful but the wine selection...just stick to the daily cocktails. All in all a very satisfactory experience.More

Most of the items have been hit or miss for me. I have been here for couple dates, double dates, family get togethers, and business dinners. Probably 8 times. I have tried the filet mignon multiple times. The first few times it was great. The...last 3 it was overcooked. After that I ordered the blackened chicken which was okay, it was a bit overcooked/dry. I've tried the chicken and brisket quesadillas which were decent . The potato wedges are great, fries OK. My better half usually orders one of their seafood specials since we typically go during the weekend and he has loved all of the seafood items he has ordered from the specials and of the menu. You can't go wrong with seafood items from what I've seen. The creme brulee is awesome!!!!!More

We, along with another couple, made a spur of the moment, toll up decision to visit Elizabeth City on Tuesday. Other choice was Edenton, but EC won out this time. None of us had been there in over 20 years, and thought it would be...nice to check the area out today. Had no idea where we'd visit while there, nor about dining options. Looked up and found this place on Tripadvisor. Reading the reviews, we expected something very good. Three of us ordered seafood; I asked our server if the seafood was fresh or frozen. Her hesitant response was "yes", then nothing else. Bad on me for not asking again because we were expecting fresh seafood, since we were close to available coastal fisheries. The other member of our party ordered a chicken wrap, which she deemed to be "good". I got an oyster po'boy, my wife ordered a shrimp po'boy, and the other person in our group got the grilled tuna sandwich. When the plates arrived, we were disappointed to see that the seafood was frozen and not fresh. My oysters were bland and tasteless. My wife said her shrimp reminded her of something from the grocery store freezer, hard with more batter than shrimp. The tuna sandwich was described as "Okay, but would not order again". Perhaps if we visit again we will certainly order something other than seafood, and hope for better results. Not certain we will, but most definitely will do more research about other restaurants in the area. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated, well lit and spacious. Our server was nice enough, with a perky personality. She was attentive but not overbearing. I'm not certain if we caught the kitchen on a bad day or not, but I'd like to think so based on other reviews here. Maybe we'll try it again; maybe not.More

I've had dinner here several times and I've never had anything less than a very good meal. I prefer this place over all other places in town when deciding on a nice place for a good meal. Highly recommended.
