Description: City Kitchen is a Waterfront Restaurant with approachable American Cuisine that is kicked up a notch. Just like our great country, the chef draws from our diverse ethnic mix, with Southern, Asian, Hispanic and other influences. City Kitchen's cuisine is imaginative yet familiar. We are an unpretentious restaurant, with an inviting decor and awesome food! (Our desserts are pretty darn tasty too!) We also have a Waterfront-open air bar that is open in Season for Lunch and light bar food in the evenings. Call for hours as this is weather dependent.

Make a Reservation ! Sit outside on the balcony if you can stand the temperature! Enjoy the 'Catch of the Day' or anything else on the menu! Watch an (almost) Carribean sunset! And if this is not enough, have the desserts explained by the Hostess. Warning - you'll gain weight !

The location provides outdoor dining with a typical area marina view, while inside is classic and simply--but upscale for this area. Still it remains casual as is everything here. Food is very good quality--I don't always love the spin the chef takes and some items are a bit pricey but it is in the top 4 dining options for a... More

My husband and I have enjoyed frequent visits to the Beaufort area over the years. We've always loved the view of this restaurant; unfortunately, it has changed ownership quite a number of times over the years. Regardless, we made a recent reservation over the Labor Day holiday. As expected, the view is beautiful and the decor was appealing. The wine... More

Our party of 5 arrived early, but our reserved table (outside) was ready. The view of the marina is beautiful at sunset. Server Sean, very friendly and not overly chatty, was there with water almost immediately. We ordered drinks and appetizers which came out quickly. Our appetizers were the Truffle Oil Chips and the Pimento Cheese Spread with crostini, both... More

Having visited this restaurant location several years ago and enjoyed the ambiance of the marina and sunset combination, we looked forward to sampling the reputation of the chef. The beginning with the Duck Quesadilla excited our taste buds. One of us wanted a salad or salad type appetizer and ordered the Burratta of fresh local heirloom tomatoes and mozzarella cheese...

What a great place. The view, the food, and the staff are top notch! The tiki bar is a great place to meet up with your pals after work and the breeze keeps you from overheating. Try the duck. It's just wonderful. The wine list is excellent. My new favorite place to eat. Welcome to Beaufort City Kitchen, we are... More

We have eaten in the restaurant several times when it was in Morehead and now that it has moved to Beaufort. The food is excellent and you won't find any better crab cakes. Deserts are outstanding.

Hands down the best restaurant in the whole area. The setting is charming - both indoors and out. Just think - sunset over the water and a glorious one at that. The waitstaff were professional, friendly, attentive (but not too attentive), and extremely helpful. And then there is the food - absolutely wonderful! The flavors are interesting, complex, and blend... More

We live part time in Beaufort, and had visited this site under the past owners- and never returned. This new edition is a welcome and fantastic improvement. The dishes (there were 4 of us) were all quite good, and as other reviewers have noted, the staff (from the manager to the servers) were exceptionally friendly and efficient. Glad to be... More
