The atmosphere is warming and very comforting. Great views of the sunset while having dinner. The service was very good and the food was very fresh. The desserts are untouchable here and a must get. Even if you think you are stuffed you must get a dessert from here. If in the Beaufort/Morehead City/ Atlantic Beach area this place is... More

City Kitchen is truly a great restaurant to eat dinner at with either friends or your family. The restaurant has a nice comforting feel and a very friendly wait staff. The food was absolutely phenomenal and the presentation was also fantastic. Very fresh ingredients and made exactly the way you want it made.

I have eaten here on last years vacation and again last week. Both times the food and service were fantastic. Try the southern sampler appetizer and the sticky pudding dessert.

Had reservations, probably a good idea. Service and entire experience was great. Food was reasonably priced and was prepared well and was outstanding. Will become a regular visitor when in town..

We took our teenagers with us. If you have kids that do not like seafood this is not the place to take them. The appetizers were delicious not to mention our meal. It has a pretty view and has a deck outside for eating as well. It's view is changing because of the highway being built right by it. Make... More

Went last night for the first time with my wife and another couple. Dining out, especially when you are spending high dollars, needs to be a complex but subtle convergence of so many elements. City Kitchen puts it all together very well. So well in fact, that it's hard to find their equivalent in any city anywhere. Start with the... More

I called in advance to see if they allow pets and was thrilled to find out that they do. It is hard to find a restaurant that serves good food and is pet friendly and clean. We had a lovely time on their outdoor deck area. Everything tasted very good and the place was very clean. Everyone was friendly also.

Overall, the food was pretty good. The duck bolognaise was real good and the crab cakes were pretty good. We ate on the outside deck overlooking the water. That was nice except we got a table close to the a/c unit and that was noisy. I would go again

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.
