Great food and service

We had a party of 10 for a after wedding dinner and everyone was very happy. Prime rib and the steaks were all very good. Only thing which keeps this from a five star review was that they ran out of the top sirloin steaks. I am not sure how this could happen at a steak house at 7:00 on... read more

Thanks for your review. I remember you well. We did run out of sirloins. Our food vendor ran out so we took the hit as well. Wish I had known you ordered I would've given you next steak. Sorry this didn't happen. Wish you luck in your future together and if town again come back be glad to make it... More

so we had steaks and salad. The filet's were better than the ribeye. The onion rings and salad dressings were great. Warm bread was really good. Our server did a fabulous job. This place is kinda out of the way and not sure the food was good enough the drive back. If you are staying near that part of the... More

We in the restaurant business are always at the mercy of our meat vendors. We cut our own steaks and try hard to make everyone happy. Sorry to hear you wouldn't advise the drive.

Our party of 8 ordered steaks, salmon & chicken. The 2 salmons had to be sent back because when ordered we asked that they been prepared well done. Came out, under cooked. The steaks were over cooked. The baked potatoes were wonderful, the house salad dressing was also a favorite. The restaurant did give us 2 free desserts because of... More

Went with a group of friends for our 2nd outing to this restaurant. This was a MUCH better experience than the first time. I ordered the fried shrimp (8) dinner which included a nice sized salad and one side item. I ordered the loaded baked potato. My husband the grilled Chicken salad. Everything was delicious, hot, and the service was... More

Good food is very important to us when we travel. In particular, we like regional foods. We had perfectly cooked sirloins (see our review of Sheba's in Hope, AR for another good regional meal). Chef Tapia or Chefe as they call him is professionally trained and runs a happy kitchen with few weekday staff. When I tasted his steak flatbread... More

I've been here many times under old management and always had a delightful meal. However last night my wife, child, and I went and we ordered steaks and my child had the chicken strips. Our steaks were ordered medium (they came out medium rare and medium well) I was kinda stressed for time and didn't care to send them both... More

I do see your review and appreciate you letting me know. The only defense I have is I wish you would've told us while you were still there. My meat vendor will tell you because of the draught they can't guarantee each and every tenderloin we receive. We cut our own steaks and until they are cooked you have no... More

We were not sure what to expect with the rustic exterior, but found a nice, quiet interior and attentive servers. I tried one of the specials, the mahi mahi. The fish was perfectly seasoned and cooked. My husband had the prime rib which he said was tender and well seasoned. Our daughter had a steak which also tasted great. We... More

Thought we'd try out a new place we've never been to so decided on KJ's. Nice, clean decor and good service. Food is a little pricy but we enjoyed our country fried steak meals. Could have used a little more cream gravy. Will probably go back and try something else next time. I wanted to get the red snapper with... More

Thanks so much for your review. Glad you enjoyed your meal. We try to do specials everyday On the weekend we try to have some fresh fish and it does cost a little more. Our menu is fresh and with the rising cost of food we do the best we can. But with that being said we did sell completely... More
