Excellent dinner & service!

Best Sea Bass with smoked poblono sauce sitting on a bed of parsnips puree'. Douglas saw to our every need and even shared a delicious dessert plate to help us celebrate the evening. Please add KJ'S to your list of stops.

My previous review gave KJ's top marks. Since then, the ownership has changed as well as the menu and the prices. I believe it to be over priced. The secret tip about the prime rib sandwich is no longer true. The Chopped steak is not on the menu any more, but when i commented on that, the waiter said they... More

We do still make some of the old favorites by request In two years prices of beef have gone up. At the grocery store... More

We had lunch with a private group--the owner opened especially for us. The food was excellent; several in our party chose prime rib sandwich (a specialty at KJs) and the serving size was large and meat was cooked perfectly. I had grilled chicken sandwich, and requested fresh green beans as a substitute for French fries. The chef made the substitution... More

I was reluctant to step out there because of the two guys that gave 1 star. They maybe should not eat Ahi Tuna in Hot Springs, AR. My filet mignon and sides were fabulous as was my husbands prime rib. Service was great as well. This is on our favorites list in Hot Springs.

I had one of the best steaks in town. It had been along time since I had a steak cooked to perfection. It was a rib-eye that medium rare and I could cut it with a fork. I can't wait to go back. Yum yum. Thanks a bunch for a meal that was worth the price.

Took my baby girl there this eve for her 17th birthday. Had reservations for 7:30, and showed up on time. We were told the last table was lingering, and it would be a minute. Shortly afterward the previous customers exited the dining room, exclaiming how they had been waiting on there change from their server for 20 minutes. When the... More

I would like to speak with you about your visit. I wasn't aware of any of this. You didn't list your server name and I had 6 on the floor. I want to correct this matter but need to ask you a few questions if you don't mind. Please call 501-767-0063 to get in touch with me. Thank you so... More
