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!) Dinner Tues - Sat 5:30pm-until We also have a Waterfront-open air bar that is open in Season on Fri and Sat evenings. Call for hours as this is weather dependent.

Excellent food and service!!!

Everything about this restaurant was excellent! We had a very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable server named Dylan. The food was fresh and full of flavor. We had 3 small plates and shared a big plate. The desserts were to die for.

I visited City Kitchen yesterday with my parents and a friend. We received a recommendation from someone in SC and decided to try it (especially the sticky toffee) and were very glad we did. My friend and I shared the thai meatballs and pork belly tacos (both are basically appetizers) as our meal and wanted even more! The meatballs are... More

Saturday night on the deck..... Grouper; shrimp and grits; duel filets; good wine and a cool breeze to boot. Beautiful sunset. Service by Sean was attentive ms friendly. We didn't eat there, but inside was very noisy.

This was our second visit to City Kitchen. The first time we were very impressed with the atmosphere, food and service. Last night, was average at best. The steak (ordered medium by my wife) was burnt on the outside and dry in the middle. The steak had sat for a while after being cooked which is probably why the service... More

Special occasion for our family. Eclectic menu in the marina. Food was just awesome (although I'd skip the chip app which was too greasy). Only one thing...our waitress was so overly attentive that it really was tiresome. She was very sweet, but must have come to the table 25 times from start to finish....almost in between each bite! Need to... More

We didn't know how popular this place was so we called at 5pm hoping for a 7:30 reservation for 2. The hostess told us there would either be room on the deck-weather permitting - or at the bar. When we arrived, we chose to sit at the bar. Our bartender, Renee, was fantastic. We both ordered the Duck Bolognese and... More

I live 6 hours away and would drive there without hesitation to eat there again. Very imaginative dishes, great presentations, excellent service and you won't believe the desserts. You forget about the beautiful view because the food is so distracting. Can't wait to go back.

The food, the service, the views, the ambiance... perfect! Just perfect! My cousin and I stopped by (without a reservation) at 7pm on a Friday night. The hostess (and pastry chef) was so accommodating and friendly! We sat at the bar and basically had a dinner show. The bartenders were pleasant and entertaining. We had such a great meal that...

If you look at my profile, you will see that 95% of the time I give an Excellent or Very Good rating. This is partly due to the fact that we always use TripAdvisor before deciding which restaurant to try. With that said, I am giving the Number 2 rated restaurant in Beaufort, NC a Poor. It was Saturday night.... More

I am hard to impress and this menu and chef did that. The standard shrimp and grits was served with a new twist. A very nice setting and the breeze outside made even a very hot night comfortable. Be prepared to walk up stairs (don't know, maybe they have an elevator).
