We had been anticipating this evening at Chef and the Farmer after twice being disappointed by the weather. We arrived eager to taste, see, and feel what all the hoopla
was about. We were not disappointed. The hostess quickly seated us at a table
up against the brick wall, perfect for one who is hard of hearing. There is a strong "buzz"
at the restaurant. Next, we were most fortunate to have Jessica as our server. She was
vivacious and so helpful in helping us select different dishes from the menu and in choosing the wine. We selected 3 small plates and the pork chop entree and were not
disappointed. At no time did we feel rushed.We were fascinated with the way the staff
seemed to have a "synchronized dance" of wending their way through the tables as there
is not a lot of room for them to maneuver. We look forward to returning in the summer when the menu will have more of a variety of local fish and vegetable offerings.

We stopped here after going to the boiler room. The owner made my husband and I our tea and coffees. The coffees have very unique flavors like Sugar Daddy, Werther's, & Terry Turtle. The atmosphere is very fun and inviting. You can either sit and hang out to enjoy your coffee or walk around the town to the different shops.

The Boiler Room is a spin-off of Kingston’s famous Chef and the Farmer restaurant (which is just across the street), and it inherited the ability to present great food and drink courses. We started with an appetizer of popcorn oysters. Man were they ever GOOD; lightly breaded and quick fried - super moist and best tasting oysters we had ever eaten. And we hail from Nags Head, NC, where oysters rule in season. When you go,there, you MUST have them. Then we shared an order of fried green tomatoes and a roasted chicken and Brussels sprouts followed be creme brûlée for dessert. The check which included before dinner drinks came to about $50. Overall, a very nice meal in a rustic and casual environment. The only negative was the fast pace at which the courses were served. The place is popular with a mob waiting for seating. We would have preferred less of the feeling that we were being rushed so that they could turn our table.
Oh, yes, our server was pleasant and efficient. And the dinner menu has many selections front which to choose. AND they have an oyster bar, and a traditional beer, wine, and liquor bar. What’s not to love about this place?

Breakfast & Lunch Since 1941. Please come and enjoy. 3rd generation.
Stayed in Kinston specifically to eat dinner at Chef and Farmer. When I asked where I should eat breakfast, there was no hesitation- Lovick's. Staff and customers of all ages and everyone polite and happy. The town looks like it has fallen on hard times,...MoreThanks folks, come back when this way. We're always having fun at Lovick's !

King's BBQ and Chicken serves Eastern NC BBQ; traditional vinegar based, hand chopped pork BBQ. We serve the best sweet/spicy BBQ ribs and BBQ chicken in Kinston. Locally sourced vegetables including collards, turnip greens, cabbage, black eyed peas, and candied yams. Visit our main location on E. New Bern road and enjoy Lou-Lou's Oyster Bar. It is located inside King's and serves up local steamed oysters, crab legs, steamed shrimp and much more. We also have three take-out locations on Vernon ave, North Queen str, and finally Kingold blvd in Snow Hill.
This King's, on Highway 70, is the only one I have eaten at. I have always enjoyed it ... it has been here for decades. Passing through recently, we had to decide whether to order off the menu or get the buffet, and decided on the buffet ... right decision. The drink is included. For about $12.50 you get a wide array of choices, and no tip. The a la carte menu will cost you about the same, plus tip. Senior price (you need to ask) is a little less. I got BBQ, fried chicken, and baked chicken ... all very good. The sweet tea is classic southern style, yum, but can get unsweet, or mix, too. Veggies very good, especially the sweet potatoes and cole slaw. I also got what looked like a big hushpuppy but it was a crab cake, and loaded with delicious crab ... wow. By and large every item on the buffet was warm and high quality ... pretty unusual. You cannot beat this value.

Been here several times now and it has yet to let me down. Could use a bit better ac when it's hot out but the food is always good and the daily specials for lunch are always a good deal. The Stromboli is very good and sized large!

This is not a fancy place but it is a great place for a gyros and single serving pizzas. And of course, you can't leave without having the baklava. Yum!

This is a great place for a variety of food that is all delicious. I am dieting and so the salad appeals to me. The salad items are fresh, the additional side items are in plastic bags as a separate item and the chicken is delicious as well. You can get several different types of salad. If you are a senior, you can ask for a senior beverage, too. The staff is always accommodating and kind and there are fresh flowers at each table...awesome!
