They're known for their oysters and they don't disappoint. We took our waiters recommendation and they were great! Large and meaty - don't forget to use their vinegar/champaign eye dropper addition. The chicken liver pate was also super good. Our bill was quite a lot but a good splurge.

Kimball House is terrific across the board: food, wine, service, atmosphere.

-Food is fresh and well-prepared -- and the choice of oysters is outstanding, probably the best in U.S. !

-Wine options are good - with a range of well-chosen options.

-Service is friendly and helpful - and plenty of waitstaff are available.

-The atmosphere is comfortable - as is the seating.

-The only quibble here is that no reservations are taken -- so it is best to dine at off-peak times.

We just happened to be in the area and dropped in to grab drink. This is one of the coolest bars we've been to,very different drinks! I loved the Pecan Old Fashion…mmmmm! We sampled a few of the oysters as well, so many to choose from, can't wait to go back!

My husband and I just went here for the first time on our anniversary. Excellent choice if I do say so myself (my idea): The food and the staff were exceptional. I got the steak dinner and was treated to three courses of deliciousness. The curried coconut soup was rich and had a warm soothing layered flavor that was very pleasing. The salad was fresh and refreshing. The steak was perfect. My husband had oysters and was happy as a clam. Then he has octopus- the most tender either of us has ever tasted.

And delicious food. But the cocktails really make this place. Old-time classic cocktails and new options too. And atmosphere is eclectic and charming. A definite Must Go when in town
