Best Prine Rib in Hot Springs

After several years of dining here, KJ's remains the best restaurant in Hot Springs for prime rib. Large portions, perfectly slow roasted and melt in your mouth tenderness. And on Tuesdays their special prime rib dinner for two can't be beat. They recently changed their grill master but the food... read more

KJ's has been a favorite place for us for uears, but now they have a new chef who has really kicked it up! Food is great, service is great, crowd is great. Anyone who hasn 't been there since Chef Paul hit the scene... I highly recommend they make the visit! Yummmmm

We had a great meal, but had to wait over an hour for it. We had reservatiins for 6PM, for 4 people. We arrived on time, ordered drinks and an appetizer. After the appetizer was gone, we ordered another one and also ordered our meals at the same time. After about 45 minutes the owner came to our table and... More

After being loyal customers for several years, we will not be going back anytime soon. Last visit ,food was cold and prime rib was not anywhere the quality that it used to be. With the coming of Chef Paul the menu has gotten smaller and prices have gone up..Unfortunately, food quality has gone down.

K J's simply doesn't have the "fine dining" atmosphere to go along with their new menu---if you want to be a "fine dining" restaurant you need to add white tablecloths, nicer plates, heavier flatware and finer glasses. Flowers or a candle should be on the tables. Also the waitresses would need to dress in a more appropriate dress for a... More

What a surprise! From the outside it looks like a storage building for the feed store that shares the parking lot. BUT inside lots of nice artworks on the wall and wonderful food! My husband had the prime rib...he is a gourmet cook and VERY picky. He had the nerve to again order an end piece rare...guess what?? He got... More

We rolled into KJs with a group of 15 - including 9 kids - and they didn't bat an eye. We had a short wait as they prepared our tables. Our waitress was absolutely awesome! She was courteous, patient, and on point with her recommendations both in food and in places we should visit while in Hot Springs. Easliy one... More

Such a shame that KJ's has come to this. Service was apathetic and slow, manager was uncaring and incapable and a simple meal took 45 minutes to receive in a restaurant with 12 other people as customers. The hostess was also the manager and she blamed it on the server. A manager that can miss the fact that tables are... More

Had read some nice things and probably expecting too much. Pace was very hurried. Shrimp cocktail was incredibly tasteless. I'm not sure how you make something look like shrimp and taste like water. The salmon special was fine and the presentation was good. The best part of the experience was reasonably priced wine by the glass. Also, my wife's chicken... More

The food and the service were MUCH better than I expected. My strip steak was as good as, or better than, high-end restaurants in Dallas.
