Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Located on four acres of gardens on the banks of the Black Warrior River, this Tuscaloosa restaurant built of cypress wood is naturally beautiful. The arbor overlooking the waterfront offers an intimate outdoor ceremony setting.
  • The reception room is softly lit and easily customizable, with large roll-up windows opening onto an airy deck and patio that serves as an additional area for guests to mingle. Tables, chairs, and linens, as well as all setup and breakdown, are included with the rental.
  • Using local ingredients and heirloom family recipes, the exclusive in-house Cypress Inn Catering provides an extensive array of buffet and plated dinner menu options. Full bar service stations with bartenders are also available.
