Amazing steak & Salmon

Delicious food. Steak was absolutely wonderful and the salmon was the best salmon ever eaten. Waitress was so nice and full of information about the menu-we loved her. Red-skinned mashed potatoes were great as was the asparagus. Highly recommend this place!

The ribs, chicken, and steak are all great. The staff was awesome. One of the best steakhouses I've been too.

Fresh, simple yet tasty cuisine! Really enjoyed our visit, the manager even came to the tables to make sure the patrons were taken care of! The steak was excellent, the scottish salmon was spectacular, and the veggies were super fresh. If you want a really nice setting and a romantic dinner this is the place. It is pricy so there...

Dinner here Friday, May 1st. Never disappointed at JK's! Food and staff are super! Fine dining, but not stuffy. Very relaxed atmosphere. Steaks and filet mignon are cooked to perfection. I had the 5 ounce filet on this visit and my wife had the 'surf-n-turf' offering of grilled skewers of shrimp and filet medallions. Accompanying side of mashed potatoes (the... More

Our family was looking for a place to eat steak for dinner. JK's was recommended by hotel staff and we were not disappointed! I enjoyed the seafood bisque followed by the 5oz. Petite filet mignon. It was delicious. My husband had the 26oz Cowboy Bone-in Ribeye. Oldest son enjoyed the Yellowfin Tuna. Youngest son ordered the Mahi Mahi with crab... More

Excellent wait staff. This was the most expensive meal we had on our vacation but not the best. No selection of vegetables. You get what they have. The night we went it was collard greens (which were delicious and the best part of my meal, but husband doesn't eat them). I had filet medallions with shrimp skewer. The shrimp were... More

I've been visiting the Banks for well over 40 years, and have eaten at most of the major restaurants at one time or another. But, JKs is the one restaurant we always make a point of having dinner at least once while there. Once is usually all we can afford. It is expensive but I consider it as value well... More

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,... More

Everything we had was delicious, from the salad to dessert. The steaks we had were first rate. Can't wait to go back!
