The 5 of us had a great time at the Urban Kitchen. We got there early and had a small wait but it was more than worth it. I highly recommend the NY Strip. A must stop in Corolla.

Saw this was the number one restaurant in corolla rated on trip advisor so gave it a shot.My family had the fried green tomatoes, salad, hamburger and desserts. It was good but not great...but real good. Should have had the fish.4 slices of tomatoes for 9 dollars is not worthy though. The inside was very nice and the staff where excellent. Would recommend this place but needs some kinks fixed.

Wow! Urban Kitchen is a welcome addition to Corolla. We had an amazing meal there last night. The mussels appetizer had a really tasty coconut broth with noodles. The pork chop with a black cherry BBQ sauce was very well cooked with great side dishes, moist corn cake and a delicate zucchini slaw. I finished off my son's juicy "UK Burger" and can say that it was the best hamburger of my life. The kids both had desserts that were wonderful. The chocolate panna cotta was accompanied by graham cracker crumbs, chocolate and toasted marshmallows making it a gourmet s'mores!

The service was friendly and the atmosphere was charming - clean modern country. The restaurant has limited seating so there may be a wait outside - it is worth it!

Finally a place other than the Blue Point with GREAT food on the Outer Banks. The food was so good, my wife and I came back two consecutive nights. It's located in the Harris Teeter shopping center in Corolla.
The restaurant is small, 32 top, and it fills up quickly. Get there by 5:30pm, or you'll have a bit of a wait. The chef has a smaller menu, 4-5 apps, 5-6 main, a couple of salads, and outstanding desserts! The food is cooked perfectly, you can taste the freshness, and the passion of the chef/owner. The pork chop is huge and tasted great. My wife had the UK Burger and said it was one of the best she's ever eaten. The mussels were perfect in a coconut/curry broth. And definitely go for the desserts. Had an "ice cream sandwich" with homemade vanilla ice cream slapped between homemade chocolate chip cookies and chocolate drizzle.
Do yourself a favor, give this small restaurant a chance, you'll definitely go back!

This meal reminded me of something I would order in a New York City restaurant- very "foody", beautiful and most importantly, delicious! Friendly atmosphere and stylish but artsy decor. Best food we had in several days, and paid less than the crappy meal we had the previous night elsewhere! This ones a keeper.
