The King's Kitchen
A welcome refuge in a stormWe made a reservation for 5PM when dinner started and had the food at our table at 5:13! The chicken is excellent. Biscuits are terrific. Mixed fruit and shortbread were outstanding. We had a sheltered view of one of the heaviest downpours this year in most pleasant surroundings with nice background music to boot. Server was knowledgeable and he was congenial and got us out in time for our appointment Uptown.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!!I truly enjoyed my experience here. I am a salt and pepper type girl but the old was seasoned to perfection that I didn't even need to add any salt or pepper. I had the fried chicken, Mac and cheese, greens and cabbage with cornbread. It truly tasted like grandmas Sunday dinners. Service was great as well. I will definitely be back! Keep up the good work!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Southern Cooking GemFantastic Southern Food.

We both had the fried flounder and several sides. Everything was cooked beautifully. Our server, Annie, couldn't have been more attentive or friendly. We enjoyed hearing the kitchen staff announcing when meals were ready to be served. It made for a cheerful ambience. We are looking forward to visiting King's Kitchen again soon.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMKing's Kitchen fit for a king!Our group enjoyed the most wonderful dining experience at The King's Kitchen last night. The Southern theme to the dinner menu was outstanding with shrimp and grits , fried chicken and home cooked steamed corn, green beans and a mac -n-cheese to rival my grandmothers. And, to know that the owners' mission to aid those facing personal challenges with work experience and job skills to succeed on their own, makes this restaurant a definite repeat visit!

We ordered the sangria which was delicious as well as the fried oysters which were also tasty. We then got the flounder and fried chicken. Portions were good and we enjoyed each thing we ate.

Our reservation was 6:30 and we made it to the 8 o'clock show with plenty of time to spare. We would highly recommend this establishment.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were visiting from NJ andWe were visiting from NJ and had heard from a friend in NC that this was a great restaurant and it sure lived up to the recommendation. great food and service.

GreatWe plan on coming back. Great southern favorites. Delighted to find butter beans on the menu and corn bread was moist. Too many southern diners serve dry cornbread and I just don't understand why such a simple item cannot be done right.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ended up with a group ofWe ended up with a group of nine for our meal at King's Kitchen which included three kids from ages 4 - 11. We were given a small private room which was cozy and very convenient so the moms in our group didn't worry too much about their kids disturbing others.
Our server was excellent - providing great advice and letting us do a few tastings of various wine and beer varieties before making a decision.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprise date nightThe perfect spot to start our date night after 13 years of marriage

Upon getting our food, I was very impressed with the quality of everything (and I am a big foodie considering I was married to an executive chef for over a decade). The pan fried chicken and flounder were amazing -- both only lightly fried so not heavy at all. If you want to support a community-focused business who gives all profits back to the community, you must not miss King's Kitchen.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Awesome ExperienceWhat a wonderful concept, dining out while helping the community. The food and service were very good. Our waitress was very friendly. Some very interesting menu items that were all very well prepared and presented.2/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
