I go often and never have I had a bad experience. I love that they have full AND half sized portions. The food is solid and reasonably prices the staff and service are seamless. It's really a nicely run restaurant. The owner is often there which is a nice touch and if you are a boater or from out of town ask if he is there. He is quite friendly and can really help you get to know the city you are dining in. Truth be told this city is so small and friendly that you can ask anyone that is local for information and I am sure you will get it.

Just off Water Street in downtown Elizabeth City is one of the best restaurant renovations of an old store front to be found. The food is quite good, especially their Thursday Night Special: Brisket! Never mind needing a knife to cut it; this is so tender, a fork is all you need. If you sit near the front there's a nice view of the Pasquotank River and Mariner's Wharf & Park. You won't regret making this one of your refueling stops!

The food is really good at Cypress Creek. The prices are mid-range and the service is excellent. They are extremely busy during lunch hours but dinner hours are more relaxed and the restaurant noise is more subdued. This is one of my favorite restaurants.

Usually we really enjoy our time at this restaurant, but we had an annoying wait staff who kept asking if we were "ok"... like they were there to "entertain and converse with us" rather than just bring us food. We were on a date, and really enjoy being left alone, so that we can talk un-interrupted, but they make you feel obligated to "engage" in some bizarre conversation with them, that completely interrupted the "flow" of our date. boo....dial it back a notch or two... please... sometimes being "reserved" is much appreciated.

We went to Cypress Creek recently for a special dinner w/ our extended family & we all had a lovely time! Between the eight of us, we tried several different meals & we were all extremely happy with them! We had their crab cakes, bacon wrapped scallops, lemon & thyme custed rockfish, quesadilla & the bourbon ribeye steak. All were excellent!! We also loved their sides: sweet potato fries & their side salad w/ delicious homemade vinegarette! The petite portion was a GREAT value & plenty to eat! The restaurant has a really nice atmosphere....clean & elegant, though not stuffy/fancy. We had a baby & a toddler with our group & the wait staff was extremely friendly and accommodating for our entire party! We never felt like an inconvenience. We will definitely be back when we visit Elizabeth City again!
