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... read 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

Like most restaurants we found the City Kitchen on trip advisor. We tried it out about a week ago for the first time and now have been for a total of 3 meals in a week. I was completely blown away by the food. We have tried the shrimp and grits, the ribeye, and two different Dailey specials. We have... More

We can't rave enough about the food and the service here. Overlooking the harbor with docked boats, the patio is perfect for cocktails (and dinner, too). Our group was too large to remain on the patio for dinner, so we reluctantly moved inside. Once the food came, we could have been in a K-Mart and it would not have dampened... More

Fantastic food and service. Brought our own Wahoo and it was cooked 3 ways Blackened, Parmesan Crusted and Slightly Spicy... totally delicious all three ways. Chips cooked in truffle oil is not to be missed same for tomatoes with Buffalo Mozzarella totally great. The deserts are all made in house and light with excellent flavors

We are fortunate to have many opportunities to visit Beaufort as we have family in town. Mostly our meals are family gatherings so when we go out it is special. Our anniversary dinner at City Kitchen was delicious! My husband had a local fish dish with a crab sauce and I had two "smalls" ...the goat cheese, arugula and beet... More

It was great to find a top-notch restaurant in Beaufort, one that compares with some of our favorites from New York, to Chicago, to San Francisco. They made our 31st wedding anniversary memorable. Call for reservations though as the seating is limited due to demand!

This restaurant has an excellent menu and tasty drinks. The service was top shelf. They have daily specials but you have to go early or they run out. Good food, good service, nice view.

My husband and I enjoyed our meal at City Kitchen. Great service and excellent food. Lovely atmosphere. Great staff. Very clean. We had the crab cake and shrimp and grits. Best shrimp and grits!! Delicious food prepared with super fresh ingredients and attention to detail. The dessert (sticky toffee pudding) was AMAZING!!!!! Melt in your mouth!! Definitely worth every penny!
