After reading the other reviews, its hard to imagine we have eaten at the same place. The two times I have tried it recently I found the prices exceptionally high, the food quantities small (and we are not large eaters), and the food very average. The facility is loud, and the service was very so-so. In talking with other friends,... More

The restaurant had a cancellation and we went. We had curry grouper with rise and agrula. The service was excellant, and the chochlate brownie to die for. My only complaint was the hugh portion size. If in Morehead City go. Closing for winter so watch out, and get reservations.

We ate at the City Kitchen last July for our 25th anniversary. Our server was nice enough, food was good but sparse and over- price compared to the rest of the area. The other patrons were so loud we could hardly hear each other because the tables were very close together. I would recommend Floyds or Blue Moon in Beaufort... More

City Kitchen was recommended by the owners of a local wine and cheese shop in Morehead City. We made a reservation and were told that they had fresh grouper as a special on the menu. When we arrived we were greeted warmly and our drinks were flawless. We started with a delicious beet salad which was just right as an... More

Last night was my third visit, and it was outstanding again. Great salad with country ham and roasted mushrooms; wonderful grouper with delicious sauce and Brussels sprouts slaw. As with all the desserts, the pumpkin cheesecake was perfect. Be sure to try the stick toffee pudding, a lightened, but perfect, take on the traditional. I haven't had anything that wasn't... More

We were looking for a "special occasion" dinner to celebrate an anniversary/birthday and chose City Kitchen because of the great reviews. We were not disappointed. Entrees were gourmet and beautifully presented, service was fast and friendly, and setting was charming. We will look forward to returning.

Highly Suggest reservations - this is a very popular place. When we pulled in, we were welcomed by a darling house and Karen's smile. It had been a rough day, our hotel in Va lost power, after we carried everything down 8 floors without any emergency lighting, we drove 400 miles. Once we checked into our condo, we drove 40... More

We discovered City Kitchen on Trip Advisor. So glad we did. Service was great, food was terrific! Atmosphere in an old house is charming. Great wine selections. Not cheap - but a great value. Lots of locals on our recent visit; and that says a lot for a small touristy city. Enjoy!

Came as a recommendation from a friend and left very satisfied. Thier farm to table approach works well. The kichen salad was fresh with great flavor. I ordered the prime ribeye with the duck fat potatoes. The CK steak sauce is very similar to what you get at Peter Lugers and The Benjamin steakhouses in NYC. Atmosphere and service were... More

This is definitely our new favorite in the area. Excellent food and service. A little loud but intimate. The most unbelievable thing is that when I paid in cash I did not realize that I was shorted $20. Before I got home had a phone call telling me to come back and get my $20. When I came back to...
