Description: If a special evening of dining is in your plans, look no further than Kimball’s Kitchen, formerly the Left Bank. Located on the Soundside of the Sanderling Resort, Kimball’s offers glorious view of the Currituck Sound and its inspiring sunsets, outstanding service and a world class menu. Kimball’s Kitchen offers everything that is special about both the Sanderling and the Outer Banks. Spotlighting local, grass-fed prime steaks, freshly caught local seafood, and an extensive raw bar selection, the restaurant creates a great dining experience with an upscale coastally casual environment. Of particular note are the numerous varieties of local oysters and the classic seafood tower, with a daily changing list of locally caught fish and seafood. Daily pasta and risotto specials are accompanied by an extensive Wine Spectator wine and champagne list. Children are welcome and are served smaller portions of the standard menu with a 50% price break.

The sides are extra but worth it. Another person in our party had the veal chop and raved about it. Desserts are... More

Dining with a view of the sound was a priority but the level of sophistication in the quality of the food, preparation and presentation as well as the ambience wowed me. The widely spaced tables, high ceilings, panoramic view of the sound, open kitchen, and mood elevating jazz music was a total vacation experience.

Kimball's Kitchen is the new entry into what formerly was the Left Bank in Duck, NC. Excellent water views, combined with well prepared food and smooth service makes for a very pleasant meal in a beach area where the other choices are at least several notches below. Go. You will not be disappointed by either the bar, wine selection, food... More

The menu is varied and had something for everyone. The side order of lobster Mac and cheese is not to be missed! Great wine list. Service was fantastic and... More

Shrimp cocktail, beautifully presented. Steak and pan-fried grouper were both prepared wonderfully. A bottle of Stag's Leap Sauvignon Blanc led to the owner stopping by and chatting about how that wine is like an old friend to him....a delightful dinner, followed by a sunset for dessert.

Great place to have a very fancy, tasty meal. My husband and I ate here for dinner and had a fantastic time and the food was great. We will definitely be coming back here - service is what you expect at a restaurant like that.

They offered wonderful cocktails and wine choices. The oysters were yummy as were the entrees of both meat and fish. Dessert was over the top. We had excellent and attentive service. I highly recommend.

Not for the financially faint-of-heart, but great service, food, atmosphere and sunsets. Open kitchen design, not a lot of tables, very nice

A truly enjoyable evening is a lovely setting - - spectacular views of the sound. The restaurant's atmosphere complemented by both the staff and the quality of the food. The sommelier was particularly knowledgeable and a joy to talk with.
