Very good

After reading reviews, and needing somewhere open a little later, decided on JK's - so glad we did. I took off a star because I felt 12.00 for a martini was very steep - especially since they didn't even fill the glass all the way.

Had the prime ribeye about 53.00. It is as good as it gets! Came with mash potatoes and the best collard greens I have ever had!

When you see the parking lot full at 6pm, you know you're in for a treat. The moment we walked in the door, we were treated like a long lost friend. Although it is a steakhouse, it was burger night. We enjoyed the best burgers we've had in a long, long time. The restaurant is cozy and prices reasonable. We'll... More

JK's Steak and Seafood is one of the nicest places to eat on the Outer Banks. As soon as you walk in the door, you are greeted by a friendly host/hostess, you can hear laughter and happy conversation from the bar area so you know the locals frequent there, and you can watch meat being grilled to order. Once seated,... More

The staff was all great, efficient and friendly. Our waitress was Jana and she made our dinner a pleasant experience. The food... More

This restaurant is like the cherry on top of the cake, a slightly upscale, but well worth it, atmosphere is so beautiful, candlelight, linens, wait staff so friendly and professional. And the steaks are melt in your mouth, seafood is perfectly cooked. I Highly Recommend !!!!

We don't travel to the Outer Banks often, but when we do, JK's is a must! The food is outstanding and the service is top notch. I have something different every time I go and I'm always impressed. And, the deserts are fantastic.

Having eaten in the finest steak houses in New York City and other areas, I rate JK's at the very top. What a wonderful Standing Rib with the bone in. Absolutely delicious, Broiled perfectly over Mesquite coals and served with great bread, roasted vegetables and perfect baked potato. The server was professional and available. I cannot imagine having a better... More

The atmosphere is cozy and candlelight lighting. The servers are very knowledgeable of the menu and describe everything so well. The steaks were out of this world! I cannot wait for me and my husband to go back! I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!
