Excellent wait staff. This was the most expensive meal we had on our vacation but not the best. No selection of vegetables. You get what they have. The night we went it was collard greens (which were delicious and the best part of my meal, but husband doesn't eat them). I had filet medallions with shrimp skewer. The shrimp were... More

I've been visiting the Banks for well over 40 years, and have eaten at most of the major restaurants at one time or another. But, JKs is the one restaurant we always make a point of having dinner at least once while there. Once is usually all we can afford. It is expensive but I consider it as value well... More

We were both craving steak and were recommended to JKs and I am so glad we were! It was my hubby's birthday dinner. He is Greek, so when he saw the rack of lamb on the menu he chose it instead, actually. He raved over it. I had a bite and was just as pleased. My steak was juicy, tender,... More

Everything we had was delicious, from the salad to dessert. The steaks we had were first rate. Can't wait to go back!

Dry rubbed ribs were not juicy, maybe on the grill too long. Waiter forgave half of bill due to ribs. Kale salad and steaks were good. Good service.

I'm a meat and potatoes kind of guy. the filet had good flavor, tender, and cooked to order. Mashed potatoes were delicious. I would have got asparagus over creamed spinach. creme brulee was tasty but small. spicy dinner but worth the splurge.

We had heard about the off-season burger night and had to stop in and give it a try. The burgers were fantastic! Almost any toppings you could think of and it was very generous. Fries with the cowboy seasoning were great also. Had a great appetizer also. Always great service and food every visit.

The quail is just simply amazing. The fried onions are enough to feed an army. The steaks are delish, and the wine is as well. New go to for an awesome filet!
