Probably the best restaurant we visited while in OBX. The service was amazing and our waitress was very friendly and helpful. Also, the food portions were large and of excellent quality. Will definitely visit on next trip

We ate here one night and really liked it. Even though they were out of 2 of the steaks we wanted, we ended up getting good steaks. I had the chimmichurri marinated strip steak and my boyfriend had the ribeye. Both were cooked perfectly (medium rare). The bread they give you is also awesome (crusty on the outside and warm...

Found JK's on trip advisor and I am so glad we ate here. From the food to the service to the atmosphere, it is a must place to eat if you vacation in the OBX. We all ate something different from chicken to seafood. They are known for their great, aged steaks, but anything you get there is going to... More

Great atmosphere, service, and dinning. A must go visit. Great chef who knows perfection. I will dine here with every visit, and will recommend to all my friends.

We enjoyed a meal here at dinner with a friend who is a local. Right much more pricey than what we usually pay but we got three appetizers that were delicious. We were put in a small room with two tables and it was perfect for talking and visiting. Waiter was very attentive and helpful.

We were delighted to find this restaurant to be adult friendly and geared more for those looking to dine, rather than just sit down and eat. Food was delicious, staff was extremely friendly. It was nice not to have the restaurant packed with screaming children as most places seem to be on the Outer Banks. Give this restaurant a try... More

We went Thursday night, we were so blown away by the delicious selections, we went back again Friday night! Our waitress, Jana was exceptional. She answered all our questions was such a pleasure. I had the most delicious espressotini, served iced cold, just as I like them. The Maytag salad, a must. Seafood bisque soup, yum! I had the JK... More

I really love the food here, so we went back for a second meal. While not inexpensive, it is always delicious and the staff is attentive. I had rib eye the first night...very good! The second night, I opted for two appetizers and a salad for my meal...the quail is always a winner and the soft shell crab was divine!... More

The steak was wonderful. It was the best I have had in quite a while. The shrimp was perfect. Very romantic atmosphere. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for great food and very attentive staff.
