Overview

New American cuisine reigns at Kimball House, a lively spot in Decatur showcasing seasonal, local fare in dishes like confit pork tartine, charred octopus or a three-course steak dinner, as well as an extensive oyster bar. The towering bar pours absinthes, classic cocktails and craft beers on tap. The timeless vibe is instilled with vintage globe lights, leather banquettes and marble tabletops.
