“Grouper's A delight!”
Reviewed August 6, 2008

My wife and I ate at Grouper's while visiting Elizabeth City last May in hopes of retiring there in 2009. We will definately go there after we move. The waterfront setting is nice, food was excellent, prices reasonable and service okay. We'll be back!

“Good Food, Terrible Service”
Reviewed August 2, 2008

Grouper's has pretty good food if you have the patience and energy to put up with several inconveniences. First, we had to wait a long time to be seated even though the place had many vacant tables. I made the mistake of ordering a mixed drink (Mai Tai) from the bar and it was undrinkable and did not have the correct ingredients. I would reccommend ordering beer or wine instead of mixed drinks. Our appetizer finally arrived along with our main course. The food was good, but took a long time to be prepared. During that time, our waitress did not come by to check on us. We also made the mistake of sitting outside on the deck. There were mosquitoes everywhere and no fans or citronella candles to help keep them away. The outdoor lights did not come on until it was so dark that I couldn't see what I was eating. We finished our meal and were very ready to leave but our waitress could not be found. We had to go back inside and ask the hostess to find her so that we could get our bill. The food is okay but not worth the bad service. Other tables with different waitresses were having similar problems as well.

“Pasquotank Dining Pleasure”
Reviewed May 5, 2008

This is a wonderful spot to end a hectic day. Dining on the deck, we slid under the proverbial wire to get the dinner special, which is offered until 6:00 pm. The succulent shrimp were a real treat. The service was excellent!
