Last night, a group of eight of us enjoyed a fabulous meal at City Kitchen. I shared, tasted or consumed the following: salad with roasted root vegetables and sliced duck breast, a local cheese (Juusto) flash fried on top of arugula with a tomato-based sauce, baked oysters with creamed collards and bacon jam, and shrimp and grits. All of this... More

Food fantastic but not $$. More like $$$$. The meatloaf is out of this world and the Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale is a very tasty beer.

Great experience all round! Interesting menu with old standbys prepared in new ways (grilled meatloaf, duck bolognese) in a restful (low or no music) environment. Waitress interesting and interested in our experience. Paid the same or less as Front Street restaurants and felt feted! This is a must-try for any one living or visiting Beaufort! Be prepared to be dazzled!

We had eaten dinner at City Kitchen in their old location in Morehead City and loved the local seafood and farm to table vegetables. We decided to try their new location on the waterfront in Beaufort for lunch. I ordered the Korean Pork Belly Tacos and they were devine. Pork belly was cooked to perfection and the pickled vegetables were... More

Had a great dinner tonight at City Kitchen with my wife. Her flounder and shrimp were outstanding, and. My pork dish was excellent. My scotch was a nice drink and my wife's wine pour was nice. Our waiter Sean rates as one of the best waiters we have ever had. This is a top class restaurant with reasonable prices and... More

Today we had lunch at the City Kitchen on their upstairs porch at the Town Creek Marina in Beaufort NC. The wait staff was very friendly and kind and cheerful. The ambience was wonderful, overlooking all the boats with a nice view of Beaufort and the drawbridge and even Morehead City in the distance. The food was superb...so good, in... More

We checked out this, one of our favorites, for the first time after its move to Beaufort. It's still a delightful restaurant which now has a wonderful view. We dined twice within 3 days and were quite pleased each time. Since they only serve fresh locally caught fish, there was only flounder the first time, which I don't particularly love.... More

After five days on a coastal vacation, we were ready for something different. The burger and the meatloaf were incredible. Moist and flavorful. Waitress made a good wine pairing suggestion. Great place for sunset.

A foodie friend and frequent restaurant patron suggested the new location of City Kitchen. He proves to be a foodie and a friend indeed. In a coastal area with many four-star dining options, City Kitchen rises above them all. The marina setting is a pleasant backdrop to an outdoor Tiki Bar, where you can enjoy a beverage while also enjoying... More

Fairly new restaurant on the water in Morehead City (I think) (GPS couldn't find the place), and our crowd challenged their resources. The were about 15 of us including 5 small children. We ate outside, and everyone was moving around and didn't sit in one spot. We ordered several starters (kettle chips, rare tuna, pimento chees spread and more) They... More
