Best steak and lamb you will ever have!

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,... read 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!

This is one of the best restaurants on the Outer Banks. For that matter it's one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. And I've been to a lot. The owners do a great job and the food is fantastic. Wait staff is great. The ribs are to die for. Cooked over an open wood fire with a dry... More

What a meal! We started with appetizers of Tobacco Onions which were awesome. So much lighter and less greasy than the "bloomin" onion of other restaurants! Then we all had burgers! They were delicious and cooked to perfection just how every one ordered them! The bacon topping was full slices of bacon and the homemade fries were to die for!... More

We have lived in the area for years, but never tried this place until tonight. After our visit tonight, I am not sure why we waited so long! The food was great and the service was excellent. We will definitely make it a "regular" spot for us.
