We recently arranged for a special dinner for my father.....his 90th birthday!
It was a great celebration from the very start. I contacted the owner, Rose, and she got back to me immediately with lots of suggestions and ideas on how to make it a great night. From making a special menu for our group of 25 to answering my many emails and providing balloons and special birthday desert for the birthday boy! We had our own private room right on the water and Rose allowed us to decorate the tables ourselves with art pieces handmade by my father. The food was delicious! We dined on their house signature dish, Prime Rib, Shrimp Scampi, Chicken Parmesan, Salmon and The 51House burger.......ALL were greatly enjoyed. Both the owner and manager were on board for our event as well as several servers. So we really felt like they paid us much attention. 25 entrees are a LOT to prepare and serve at one time and we really appreciated all the hard work that they put into the evening. A beautiful venue for any special occasion! Many thanks to Rose and her manager, Kelly. We will return when in Edenton next time.

Visiting friends who brought us here. Friendly, great food, lovely experience. Fish & Chips with flounder was great—too much to eat!

So Bad it should be closed down - Its the second time we have been to the restaurant and the last time we will ever go there. Bad management, awful service and tasteless food. We went a few months ago when some idiot from Vegas called Chef Vic was there and the food was OK but not great. This time the food was cold and place was empty. Bad food and terrible service

We come come the 51 House for Sunday brunch every few months and have always enjoyed - nice ambiance, great setting and good service - plus really good food and drink. No change except they have a new menu with prices that have EXPLODED! Eggs Benny used to be about $11, now $23. Same deal with waffles, omelettes, and drinks. The tiny complimentary blueberry muffin and canned fruit cocktail hardly make up for this. The food was still very good and generously served, but we will not be returning. Way too expensive, especially in Edenton, NC.
