European-style ‘small plates,’ and authentic Italian pizza and gelato are menu centerpieces at two new downtown restaurants.


Welcome to Elizabeth City, NC!

We invite you to visit our little home perched on the shores of the picturesque Pasquotank River. If you are looking for a laid-back destination, we might be what you are looking for.

What will you find when you visit? Cypress trees rising from our waterways, a pirate’s cannon in Museum of the Albemarle, four neighboring state parks, ghosts of the underground railroad, and a sailing breeze to boast about.

Start your adventure here.
