Delicious as always
I always make Cypress Inn an item on my to do list when I visit Tuscaloosa. The food is delicious and the view of the river is spectacular!

Great stop for boaters
The food was excellant. The servie from Gary and staff was outstanding. We tied up our boat to their dock and stayed overnight. I highly recommend this place.

Everything was delicious.
Everything was delicious. My daughter and I enjoyed the smoked chicken with white barbecue sauce. My husband had a blackened grouper catch of the day special. I love salads, so my favorite dish was the apple salad, full of candied pecans and rich bleu cheese. Of course, we wasted no time devouring our bread basket! It was a great way to celebrate Honors Day for my daughter at the University of Alabama.

Visiting Tuscaloosa and had an early dinner at The Cypress Inn. We had a terrific experience there, and highly recommend it. The meals were well prepared and presented, the service was great, and we sat outside on a beautiful day looking over the river... perfect. We look forward to going back on our next visit.

Great meal with a scenic view
Although the service was a bit slow the food and view made up for it. We had a center view of the Black Warrior river. Very scenic. The food was excellently prepared and plated beautifully.

Our table awaited us and we were quickly seated on the deck to capture the setting sun.
Beginning with the platter of appetizers, our entire meal did not disappoint
A real neighborhood gem and a great place to relax after a day of football.

This was our second visit
This was our second visit to Cypress Inn both for special occasions. Making a reservation is definitely the way to go, while there I heard it was a 45min to 1hr wait. There are wooden rocking chairs to enjoy while u wait. Most food prices are affordable but pricey menu items are available. I had the steak and shrimp special, the steak was well worth the extra expense, but the 3 shrimp were tasty but a disappointment in value The breads they put on the table are addictive. Great dock to enjoy.

Robert our waiter was so sweet. He took very good care of our group of 7 women who had not seen oneanother in a long time.
We enjoyed our lunch our visit and the good service.

The food and service were awesome! The rolls are the best I have had since my aunt passed.

A beautiful setting with good food
The Inn sits on a bluff overlooking the Black Warrior River, with wonderful views and a bucolic atmosphere. The menu was varied. We both had fish (blackened mahi-mahi with a fresh salsa) and found it well above average. The service was friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. The only negative was that, as the restaurant filled, the noise level reached uncomfortable for us. Thankfully we were nearly finished by this point. We would go back again when we are in the area, but might try a week night when crowds are likely to be smaller.

Authentic Southern food with a view
My husband and I arrived and were seated with a lovely view of the river and water taxi. Our server was so friendly and prompt. The shrimp primavera soup was delicious! The broiled shrimp with a side of hoppin johns was light and tasty. Diners continued to arrive until the restaurant closed, but were still greeted and served courteously.

This is a great place to come
This is a great place to come for either a special occasion or just any time. The food and prices are great and the service excellant. Loved the muffins and breads that are served even my husband loved it and he is picky. He like the prime rib and the horseradish sauce even dipped his fries in it and I loved it too. will be back alot more either with friends or by ourselves. This was a great find.

Great lunch spot!
This was our first time to go to the Cypress Inn and we had high expectations from what we had heard from friends. Well, the Cypress Inn went above our expectations!! We made reservations online and we were seated immediately when we arrived. The view was beautiful! Our server, Chris, was very helpful and told us his best sellers on the menu. We were able to try the smoked grilled chicken breast for an appetizer and it was delicious. Then I had the catfish and my husband had the blackened tilapia. Both were outstanding! The rolls and muffins were excellent. My husband had the chocolate cake for dessert and I brought home the bread pudding. Best I have ever tasted! We will be back.

Send off to incoming Freshman
Enjoyed our dinner immensely --- loved the atmosphere. Only issue is we felt rushed. Appetizers arrived quickly, dinner quickly -- after a busy day of move-in was hoping to relax and unwind a bit.

Quality time with young adults
We were in Tuscaloosa for an Old Skool concert. We love seafood and we had two choices. We asked a friend who lives there and he recommended The Cypress Inn as well. It was an awesome experience and we plan to visit again really soon. The outside wasn't available but we were seated near the window and it was a beautiful view. We loved everything, the food was excellent and the winter was very knowledgeable and he very friendly. I give this place 5 stars.

A wonderful dining treat awaited us as the sun set over the Black Warrior River. Steaks prepared to order and an amazing salmon dish were accompanied with oversized baked potato . The basket of biscuits and mini muffins was a wonderful starter. The restaurant was very busy and accommodating to all! See yawl game weekend!

Nice once more
Food was good and servings generous. Beautiful river view though never seem to get an outside table. I go every time I return to town. Not 5 star but really good !
8/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
Another great visit
We are from out of town, and have dinned here several times will visiting our daughter, Our most recent visit, just like the last, was very enjoyable. Our food was well prepared and presented, and the service was friendly and efficient. We sat outside by the river on a beautiful evening... could not have been a better combination.

Icon of Tuscaloosa Dining
The Cypress Inn in Tuscaloosa, Alabama continues to set the "gold standard" for fine dining in the Crimson Tide city. From the rolls to the house salad to our entrees of smoked chicken and the "Cypress Inn Special" to the stellar desserts, we were thrilled with every bit of our food. It was well worth the 140-mile round trip we made for this very special dining experience.

The food was great as well
The food was great as well as the service. The restaurant was only about half full so I was disappointed that the earliest reservation that I could book online was 7:30. We were seated immediately when we arrived without even mentioning that we had reservations. This was a Wednesday night so I guess I should have guessed there would be no need for a reservation but it was a special occasion for my wife and I. I'm sure the crowd on the weekend is much heavier. The view of the river from our table was fantastic.

This was my first time eating at this restaurant and it was highly recommended by one of my co-workers. It was just a nice lovely atmosphere and the food was outstanding. I came here for my anniversary and I enjoyed it so much. I will be back soon.

Our food was very good and
Our food was very good and we were seated within a minute of our arrival. We were glad we had made reservations as this is a very popular spot, especially on a football weekend. The server was efficient in taking our orders and explaining the menu and the special entrees. However, we wish servers would be told to wait to bring the entree out after the salads have been eaten.

We drove in from Fayette and from Columbus to gather for a birthday celebrating. We love the food, the service and enjoy the though that we don't need a bank loan to diner wonderfully. Thanks

Great time at Cypress Inn
My husband and I have eaten at Cypress Inn several times and decided to take my sister and her husband visiting from south Florida. The view was beautiful service and food were excellent as always! They loved it and would like to return on their next visit.

Came to Tuscaloosa to see my sophomore daughter and take in a football game. Our dinner reservation was a little later than I would have liked with it being a football weekend but when we got to the restaurant we were shown to our table in a matter of minutes. Food was great, prices were reasonable and even at the late hour they still had prime rib cooked to the level that my daughter likes. Very nice place, would definitely go again!

The Cypress Inn was recommended to us by a good friend and we were not at all disappointed. The food was great, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was lovely.

Our favorite restaurant in Alabama
We don't live in the Tuscaloosa area, but whenever we get to town we always try and work in a visit here. Never had used the reservation system before, but since we were in a time crunch we tried it last time and it worked out perfectly. Usually go with the CI specialty (catfish) but everything I've had here is excellent, including the blackened tilapia I had this time.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Long time favorite
The Cypress Inn is almost in 'institution' in Tuscaloosa, and they excel at creating tasty, authentic dishes from local seafood and ingredients. And the rolls and muffins are near famous. Always enjoy the view of the Black Warrior River with the University of Alabama on the other side of the river.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to eat!
Had never been here before. Drove from Hoover. Would definitely go again. The view was fantastic. The food was excellent. I had the fried green tomatoes, filet mignon, and the cheese grits. All were fabulous. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. The cheese pie was excellent as well.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Loved the restaurant! Food was exactly what I had been missing since I moved to south Florida. Staff very accommodating . We missed our reservation time as this place is VERY hard to find and they seated us in two minutes anyways. Beautiful view of the river. Ask for a table by the window. fun bar

Overall Great visit!
When we arrived, we were seated immediately. FYI,I did make reservations. We were allowed just enough time after making our beverage selection to browse the menu. Our waiter was very nice, and made sure to check on us periodically. Our food came out oretty fast compared to alot of places. Which was great because we arrived hungry after such a busy day. I ordered the southern fried catfish and enjoyed it! My fiance ordered the steak which he mentioned was not cooked as well as he wanted but his concern was the lack of flavor. This is to be debated being that he likes his food heavily seasoned so the steak may have been just right for myself or anyone else. I look forward to visiting again!
