Arrive early for your Kimball’s Kitchen dinner reservation and sidle up to the restaurant’s long, curved bar. As you watch the sun sink below Currituck Sound, order a specialty cocktail — beachy options include the raspberry-cranberry Duckberry and the spiced-rum-based Sailor’s Pride — and an appetizer from the raw bar. Once you’re seated at your white-tablecloth-topped table, your waiter will bring you a broad wine list and tell you about the fresh catch of the day and the evening’s specials.
If you are looking for an intimate dining experience, know that there’s a good mix of families with small children, larger parties and couples dining at Kimball’s Kitchen. The restaurant isn’t quiet, but rather bustling with activity; there is chatter, and voices carry from the space’s lofty ceilings. You also have a view into the kitchen and can see and hear the activity of the waiters and chefs. Kimball’s Kitchen takes advantage of its open space and can seat large parties and rehearsal groups of up to 60 people if you are looking to host your celebration at the restaurant.
