If a special evening of dining is in your plans, look no further than Kimball’s Kitchen, formerly the Left Bank. Located on the Soundside of the Sanderling Resort, Kimball’s offers glorious view of the Currituck Sound and its inspiring sunsets, outstanding service and a world class menu. Kimball’s Kitchen offers everything that is special about both the Sanderling and the Outer Banks.<br /> <br />Spotlighting local, grass-fed prime steaks, freshly caught local seafood, and an extensive raw bar selection, the restaurant creates a great dining experience with an upscale coastally casual environment. Of particular note are the numerous varieties of local oysters and the classic seafood tower, with a daily changing list of locally caught fish and seafood. Daily pasta and risotto specials are accompanied by an extensive Wine Spectator wine and champagne list. Children are welcome and are served smaller portions of the standard menu with a 50% price break.<br />

"Kimball's is a beautiful space -- a chic restaurant in an area better known for nothing special. We really appreciated the aesthetic -- and fortunately the food and service matched the space. Not a huge menu, but plenty of choices. We had the rack of lamb and the duck -- delicious."

Chef Mike Isabella opened Kapnos along the Fourteenth Street Corridor in July 2013. Isabella draws inspiration from Northern Greece to create a menu of spreads, breads, vegetables and other small plates, including his signature wood-grilled octopus. Two wood-fire grills with rotating spits and a large oven for stone-baked flat breads service the 160-seat restaurant. Guests enjoy carvings from whole animals that have been spit-roasted all day, including lamb, goat, duck, chicken, and suckling pig. Kapnos is open for dinner seven nights a week.

"I don't know what Kapnos does to make their Greek yogurt so delicious, but I would return anytime for another yogurt parfait. Even their toast (which is grilled) tastes fantastic. Hubby liked his eggs benedict -- they get extra points for having a lemony hollandaise sauce which did not overwhelm."

"We wanted a special dinner to celebrate our anniversary, and Bernard's lived up to our expectations for the evening. Great service, excellent wine list, and very fresh, well prepared food. The piano player was a nice touch, and overall Bernard's gives good value.
Only thing I cannot understand was why it was not packed on a Friday night."

We call ourselves a “southern table and refuge”because that’s exactly what we are. A place to enjoy casual, yet refined country cuisine where you’re treated like family and can seek respite from the world in a relaxed, inviting atmosphere that pays tribute – in every way – to all that’s great about the great South.<br /><br /> From the reclaimed wood from a Florence, South Carolina, water tower that brings warmth to our space, to the authentic Alabama railroad ties from which to hang your hat, Mama’s Boy is putting the “South” in South Norwalk. As for the food? Fabulously fresh, locally sourced, lovingly prepared. You’ll find all your southern favorites, from classic shrimp and grits to country fried game hen, with a modern Mama’s Boy twist…because we like to present “low country” in high style.<br />

"The first 2 times we went to Mama's Boy we were very happy with the food and overall service. The 3rd time the service was off, so we decided one more time. First the noise.....well you have to shout to your table mates to be heard. Not great. The food comes very quickly -- really too quickly between apps and entree. They have fabulous corn bread -- but this time we were never served any. When we asked, they "ran out" -- on a Saturday night at 7PM. My cornbread salad had no cornbread. We had to waive down the server to receive a check. When you pay $100 for 2, not including the tip I think you should expect a better experience. Eventhough my hubby loves the yardbird we won't be going back."
