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

The food was good, but very expensive. My $31 special didn't seem worth the money. My husband got the $53 steak special, it was good, just not great. They did seat us in a private room at a big round table which was nice for the 8 of us.

Hosted a special birthday dinner for our son and his wife. We all had beef, so I can't comment on the seafood, but the choices looked great. My son and I had prime bone-in Rib-eyes, which were terrific. My wife had a great looking filet (8 oz.) and my daughter in law had the NY strip, which she said was... More

We had a couples date night during our stay in the OBX over Easter Weekend. It had rained nearly everyday of our three day trip and we just wanted to relax and enjoy some adult time in a nice place. We found it. We all ordered drinks and appetizers. The food was so good I couldn't get enough. This was... More

Hidden, but in plain sight is JK's Restaurant. We had actually visited the Walgreen's across the street and not even noticed the building. However, we are very excited we took a chance and stopped in after seeing an advertisement. JK's has a wonderful and very attentive staff, full of smiles and willingness to go out of their way to make... More

The restaurant reminded us of a real Texas Steakhouse. We both had a steak that was so delicious and came out hot. It was served with mashed potatoes and esparagus. The bread was also very good. We were there before and would go back if we go to the Outer Banks again.

Our best meal yet in OBX. Nice atmosphere, great servers, manager stopped by to see if we were happy (our first appetizer had just arrived). Peanut soup was good and different, fried eggplant with crab meat remoulade, ribeye and cobia, and could not resist profiteroles and rum cake. Great meal, great service. The price is appropriate for the food, service,... More

Nice atmosphere with great steak and primerib. My husband had the bone end ribeye and I had the primerib. Both were cooked to order which was impressive due to them cooking them on an open fire pit. I had never had primerib this way and it proved to be delicious. Very nice portions of everything, but the cost is on... More

I read the reviews and decided to order the ribs anyway. It was a waste of money.They were overcooked with little meat.The deli in Westchester NY near my job has better ribs. I was very disappointed. The fried lobster tail appitizer was excellent and my wife had the catch of the day and enjoyed it very much,
