I had the Oysters Rockefeller and a fresh salad, my daughter had a filet and son had the ribs, served with fresh baked bread right out of the oven. All three meals were delicious. The oyster were local and... More

We tried the filet mignonette and the bone-in ribeye. Both were huge, perfectly cooked, and tender. Loved the wedge salads too.

A nice restaurant. A bit noisy, but they more than make up for that with their steaks and chops. Make a reservation. Doesn't open until 5pm.,

My husband surprised me with a special treat, a trip to JK's for our anniversary dinner. Now, I brag all the time about how no one can make a steak like my husband, but when I don't want him to have to cook, we go to JK's. They also have a great selection of beer and wine. They have signature... More

We have eaten here for many years. Food and service always exceptional. Nice atmosphere. Always have to have a meal at JK's when we are in the Outer Banks.

I've been going here for years because it offers the best steaks on the OBX. I always order the filet mignon though any cut of beef is wonderful. In fact everything they make here is delicious, seafood, chicken and so on. Though if you are in the mood for steak, don't go anywhere else. You will NOT be disappointed.

I was a little worried when I first got my menu because the prices seemed a little higher than other restaurants we'd tried in the Outer Banks, but the food really was delicious, the service was just right (friendly and solicitous without being on top of you every second), and the interior is spacious but really very homey.

Liked the booths that make up the seating arrangement, but felt the vegetables and mashed potatoes that accompanied the steak did not really go. Quite expensive
