My wife hadn't been there in quite a while so we didn't know if we would get the same high quality we had gotten in previous visits. I can say with certainty that we did & maybe even better. My wife had an 8 oz. beef tenderloin cooked to perfection & I had the prime rib chop also to perfection.... More

Got filet and was a great steak seasoned and cooked perfectly! They charge extra $2 if you want baked potato vs their staple mashed potatoes which is why they do it to encourage u to get the mashed. Broccoli was not steamed al dente was almost uncooked. Filet with baked potato and broccoli and two soft drinks was $80.

We have been coming to the Outer Banks for the last four years and J.K's is our top pick for dining out. We have never had a bad meal there. Sunday my husband had the center cut filet and it was cooked perfectly. I had the Mahi Mahi and it was wonderful. We have had the same waiter every time... More

Ever vacation to Nags Head brings us to JK's more than once per vacation. The service is impeccable, wait staff very knowledgeable and the food is always fresh and delicious. This most recent visit we both ordered fish - for me the mahi mahi and for my husband the salmon. Both dishes were cooked to perfection, served delightfully hot and... More

Had an impromptu business meeting here and as always the food was amazing. Everything, down to the bread was fantastic. Steaks are so tender and cooked just right. Not a lot of fat or gristle, just good eating meat. The Oysters appetizer was great also. The rib appetizer was also great. Just can't say enough good things about JK's! Will... More

Everything was well above expectation! The mahi mahi bites were delish! I had the JK special. The filet was so tender - it just melted in your mouth!!! My husband had the Atlantic salmon and equally loved his dinner. Our waitress was very attentive and very pleasant! Go ahead and enjoy your visit to JK!

We wanted a place that was special for the quality of its food and service that was not inundated with tourist. When we asked many local residents where they would go to celebrate an anniversary or a birthday, the response was unanimous - JK's. We were thoroughly impressed with the decor, the easy flow of the dinner service and the... More

We never miss an opportunity to eat at JK's when we visit OBX. The food is excellent; the quality and service are the same year after year! THANK YOU for not fixing something that isn't broke. Keep doing exactly what you're doing! You definitely compete with the top quality restaurants in the DC Metro area!
