    This was our first visit to Kimball's Kitchen...we wanted to celebrate New Year's Eve in a special place, and we had heard good things about the restaurant. We were not disappointed, in fact, our experience far exceeded out expectations. We have been coming to the Outer Banks for several years, and we have several favorite restaurants, but none of them I would consider "fine-dining". Kimball's Kitchen is clearly a "fine-dining" establishment, and I would clearly recommend it for a special occasion. For burgers and beers I have several places to go to...for a special treat (or date night) I will definitely take my wife back to Kimball's Kitchen. BTW...our server Dillon was the best!!!!

    Fantastic food. Excellent service. Great room. Very comfortable. Maybe put some floodlights outside for after the sun goes down?

    Chef and staff were very personable and professional. The chef was accommodating to a couple of our requests. The food and atmosphere are top notch. We will continue to visit Kimball’s restaurant.

    We've been coming here for years during the summer tourist season. We were so thrilled they decided to open for a couple of weeks after Christmas that we made plans to travel and stay nearby just so we could enjoy a couple of dinners. Service was friendly and efficient, drinks were perfect and the food was outstanding (we had the salmon and the rockfish). Is it pricey? Yep. Do you get what you pay for? Yep.

    We dined at Kimball's during the week between Christmas and New Year's, and had an early reservation, so the restaurant was not busy yet. The host and hostess were very gracious and friendly. We were a party of 2, with one of us having a food allergy. Our server was also extremely pleasant and knowledgeable, and alerted the kitchen staff of our allergy. The menu wasn't huge, but it did cover all the bases - and ALL the options sounded amazing! We made our choices - the seared halibut and a chef special of short ribs and blue cheese risotto. The food didn't take much time to prepare at all. Since one of our meals had to be modified to accommodate the allergy, the chef sent out a few alternative sauces. The food was absolutely delicious and plated perfectly. Portion sizes were also larger than expected. Throughout, our server was attentive without being overbearing. The chef also made a couple of turns around the dining room checking on all of the tables to see if everything had been prepared well. That was a very nice touch! After dinner was cleared, dessert was offered. We decided on a warm brioche bread pudding with apples. We had an excellent time at Kimball's. The staff and food are truly wonderful.

    From the moment we were greeted to the end of the meal the customer service and attention to detail was outstanding. Everyone was so friendly and attentive and the food was absolutely excellent. We visit Duck every Christmas time and will add this restaurant to our favorites list!

    This was a Christmas Eve dinner so it was very busy. However there were enough issues with both the food and service that we will likely not return.
