My husband and I visited J K's as it was right across the highway from our resort (The Outer Banks beach club). It was a real surprise, since, from the outside, it didn't do much for me. However, the menu was great and our meal...More

The tobacco onion rings are delicious and crunchy. The filet mignon cooked medium was crisp on the outside and tender inside. The prime rib special was cooked to perfection. The bread! The butter! YES!!

We eat here quite often and the food is consistently delicious every time. The service is always good, as well. Make sure you go to Burger Night in the offseason—best burger and fries you’ll ever eat!
