Best Steak

When we are in the mood for a steak this is our choice. The quality is worth the price. The only bad thing...get there early there's always a line.

JKs was awesome! My boyfriend and I decided to check it out on our last night in the OBX. We had the tobacco flour shrimp as an appetizer which were delicious. Then he had the red drum and I got the roasted and grilled chicken. The mashed potatoes as the side were the best mashed potatoes I've ever had in... More

I've paid more, and I've paid less, but two years later, I'm still using the strip that I ate at JK as a standard to measure all other stakes. My steak was aged carefully, butchered onsite, seasoned precisely, and cooked to perfection. I look forward to visiting OBX again, and sharing this experience with my new wife. P.S. The taters...

It's not all what it's cracked out to be. I got the grilled chicken it was burnt but had a good flavor. Mash potatoes are great! They also bring out some wonderful bread before the meal. Waitresses are very pleasant and nice. A good atmosphere but it's not all what it seems to be cracked out about. I would take... More

Standing chargrilled Ribeye was the best steak I have had on the OBX. Smoked dry rub Ribs where very good too - firm yet tender. Fried shrimp appetizer and Cobia where also enjoyable. Will definitely go again. Quality Food. Great service.

Every detail was perfect. Great apps, wine list, steaks. Caters to grown ups, which was nice! Get a sitter, it's worth it.

We have enjoyed JK's for the last 10 years. Their steaks are delicious, seafood specials are great and the atmosphere is the best. Service is way beyond exceptional and everyone looks like they enjoy working here. They make great martinis and have a great wine list as well. Highly recommend dining here.
