They have Burger Night, where fresh sirloin is ground up for out-of-this-world burgers. Steaks are also awesome. Only complaint is that sound really travels, so if you have noisy customers there, you will hear them throughout the restaurant. Otherwise, first-rate experience - Owner is super friendly and welcoming.

I think the best white tablecloth place for dinner onthe OBX. Be prepared, it is a bit pricy. But the food was prepared perfectly and woth the price.

Our first night in OBX, after driving 5 hours, tired and hungry; we find JK's by a stroke of luck. I wanted steak!!! This is the place to find it. They had a full rack of lamb on special, well, that's all you had to say to me. My companion had a chicken dish that was out of this world.... More

Pricey, but the steaks were tasty and cooked perfectly. Shrimp skewers had excellent seasoning. Wasn't impressed with the kids menu - the least expensive item was the rubbed chicken breast which was very salty/spicy. Nice place - I'm sure we will be back.

Although we were tempted to snub our noses at a steak place in a strip mall, we decided their menu looked great, and we should give it a try. And I am so glad we did! JK's ended up being one of the best meals we had all week, gaining a coveted spot on our "must have" list for next... More

My traveling companion loves steak, so after some research we found JK's restaurant in a nearby shopping complex. The service was good and unlike many restaurants in Corolla, this one actually had some ambience. The steak was good, but like other restaurants we visited in that area, they did not have any A-1 sauce for the steak (or any steak... More

I never submit reviews, but felt like I had to after returning from our meal. Our son gobbled up his fish of the day right before our eyes, even with the generous portion. He even ate the snap peas right up! Our steaks were fabulous, cooked correctly and accompanied by a huge potion of red skin mashed potatoes and vegetables.... More

Notwithstanding the drips from the sweating air conditioning ducts, which was a product of the humidity, the food and service here were very good. A party of 11 shouldn't be able to walk into a restaurant of this quality and get seated right away. Being right next to the Food Lion probably doesn't help the reputation, but ignore that and...

JK's food was excellent! DO NOT let the location (Food Lion anchored shopping center) dissuade you from go to JKs. The staff was very friendly and helpful - we had a 30 minute wait, but allowed us to go do some shopping and they called in advance of our seating....very kind!. The room was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. It... More

Our group of 6 decided to try this after reading the many good reviews. We were very disappointed with the quality of the food. The staff was pleasant, but the menu was extremely overpriced. The pasta from the kids menu was a larger portion than the adult chicken Caesar salad. The baby back ribs were mostly bone and far. The... More
