Went to JK's Restaurent recently (for my birthday!). I had the twice-cooked Prime Rib (only on Fridays)....it was so good!!!!! Flavorful, tender, juicy. I've never had better. Everything was wonderful, and our waitress was the best. My husband had the ribs and said he's never had better. Must give this place a try. A little pricey, but well worth every... More

The oysters, and the shrimps, are cooked to perfection. We had a great diner. Great wine selections.

We've eaten many times at JK's during the season and it is one of the best steak houses we have EVER eaten at, and we're from the Kansas City area so we have access to some great steak houses. But this review is about the off-season burger-night special. Two nights a week during the off-season they have a $12 dollar... More

It well located and you cannot miss it. Great atmosphere. The server was excellent and knowledgeable. The food was delicious and we did not wait at all. Her recommendation for the wine was what we needed.

When ever my wife and I are in the Outer Banks in the off-season, we stop in and have dinner a time or two. We haven't had a bad meal there yet, and the wait staff (Summer and Amy are two favorites) is superb! Steaks have always been the main attraction, but the seafood is not to be missed, either!...

Very good service, nice menu and setting. I had petit filet, medium rare, which was cooked perfectly. They specialize in beef and wood fired cooking. Hubby got the seafood pasta which was nicely done. Not too heavy sauce, plenty of shrimp and scallops. Wine list was adequate, not extensive or imaginative, but something reliable to go with your meal. Dessert... More

JKs has a relaxed atmosphere for a finer dining restaurant. This is not the stogy place I envisioned but rather had a clientele that is as diverse as the OBX including families with well behaved kids! Visited on an off-season Thursday and was immediately seated. However, it did appear that most four-tops were full. This is a popular place even... More

We've been going to JK's for years, so this is a 'composite' review' ... having just come across this website! For ourselves & other local friends, JK's is THE place to go for the BEST steaks, prime rib, burgers (in the bar, off-season), service & overall dining atmosphere. Co-Owner John Homcy always stops by to 'say hi' ... and even... More

Had wanted to dine at JK's for several years and finally found the time on my recent trip to the OBX. I had heard from several sources that the food was very good. We were not disappointed with the food! There were six of us in our party and we were seated in a private room of our own that... More

We come to the Outer Banks at least once a year and JK's is one of the places we eat every single time. The food and service is always exceptional. They are very accomodating. I wanted to order the mixed grille that was a special of the evening, but the fish being featured was not one that I enjoy. Our... More
