Experience. Reputation. Recognition.

Cypress Inn Catering & Events is built on the outstanding reputation of the Cypress Inn Restaurant, Tuscaloosa’s premiere riverfront dining establishment since 1984.

Located on the Black Warrior River, the Cypress Inn has a reputation for outstanding southern recipes like Alabama farm-raised fried catfish; smoked chicken with white barbeque sauce; shrimp and grits; cheese pie and more, as recognized by Southern Living, Travel South, and Tuscaloosa Magazines.

Named a “Top 10 Catfish Restaurant in America” by the Catfish Institute of America, Cypress Inn has several times been the recipient of the “Restaurant of Distinction” award from the Tuscaloosa Convention and Visitors Bureau.

It is this same attention to creating the perfect dining experience by a team of talented, experienced professionals that has made Cypress Inn Catering & Events Tuscaloosa’s caterer of choice for brides, corporations, state government officials, University of Alabama administration, individuals, and families.
