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.

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).

The City Kitchen is a must "eat at" when visiting Beaufort or the nearby beaches. It's waterfront views at sunset are beautiful. My family (a party of 13!) was treated like royalty. We have vacationed in the Beaufort area for the past 8 years; the quality of food and the level of customer service at City Kitchen are unrivaled. The... More

We had a wonderful, delicious dinner at City Kitchen. I had the yummy shrimp and grits that had a lovely, classy presentation. My husband enjoyed an excellent crab cake. BUT the dessert - sticky toffee pudding was lick-the-bowl-and beg- for-more-delicious! I like to try new restaurants but when we return to Beaufort we will definitely have at least one dinner...

After eating at many of the restaurants in the area they all seem to blend together with the same food. We were pleasantly surprised when we ate at this cute restaurant with a great view! The food was outstanding as were the cocktails! I wish it were a little closer so we could go more often!

We went to City Kitchen in Beaufort for our anniversary. What a wonderful delight! The view over Gallant’s Channel, either while you dine on their covered porch outside or the view from the many windows inside, set the mood for a romantic evening. I love sauces and theirs are absolutely to die for. My roasted chicken with mushroom curry sauce... More

My wife and I showed up with no reservation on a Friday night but were able to be seated. We started with a tomato/mozzarella salad that was out of this world. My wife had the pork chop and I had the crab cake. We agreed that both were amongst the best we have ever had. The coconut cream pie for... More

I met some friends here on a Sunday morning for brunch. The food was average, at best. My sauce on my meal was broken and grainy, and needed a tablespoon of salt just to have flavor. The view from the dinning room however, was just spectacular. I would happily go back for the view and some cocktails, but would probably... More
