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!

Was at this restaurant on a recent vacation with my family and was very pleased with the whole experience....great food and excellent service. We were a party of 7 and were immediately seated.....granted we were there on a slow night (Monday) but I use to be a server and our server was pleasant and very attentive (but not too much)....

During a recent visit (we had been there in the past and loved it), we started off with a Martini. My husband requested a gin martini (for $12), he asked what kind of olives they had, and was told they had blue cheese stuffed, one of his favorites.... so he asked for three olives in his drink. We ordered a... More

We have eaten there many times and have never been dissapointed. I like all the seasoning they put on the twice cooked prime rib. The quail, chicken and ribs are all wonderful. They don't take reservations so be patient especially during tourist season. It is worth the wait.
