I first went to JK"s a few years ago on the recommendation of my hotel clerk. It was AMAZING and I couldn't wait to return. All I can say is GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE. The food is just as GREAT. I have recommended may people who were going to OBX to visit JK's.

Decided to try this place after seeing good reviews for my Girlfriends 25th Birthday. Christine was our waitress and very good at her job. Polite, attentive, and professional all the things I value in the wait staff. We were seated by the GM, at the time I didn't know he was the GM and told him that Christine should be... More

The food was good but probably a good $10 overpriced. The chicken my dad ordered wasn't cooked all the way and was bleeding and the robs that were ordered were pretty tough. The shrimp kebabs were good but the mashed potatoes were outstanding. Our waiter was very awkward and we had to ask several times to have our drinks refilled.... More

If you want steak, this is the place. Mesquite grilled, prime cuts, and it melts in your mouth. The ribs and chops are equally good. Come early in season. The service us superb. If you can get Summer as your waitress, do so.

First time we have been to JK's. Great food. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Shana was our waitress and was right on time with everything. We will definitely be coming back.

My family of 4 stopped here for dinner. We have found our new favorite place. Best food I think I've ever had. Great atmosphere with friendly staff. Seemed like the food was at our table in 5-10 mins.

JK's has improved with every visit for us. This year food and service was so good I would have no qualms about comparing JK's to many of the very high end steak houses I've reviewed here on TA. This year we had the Filet Mignon and it was in a word....Perfect! A nice even sear and crust, perfectly cooked and... More

We ate at JK's for the first time last year right before our vacation concluded. We spent the next 53 weeks waiting (not so patiently) to return. The food is amazing and the service is top notch. We have already been back once and are going again before we leave. Everything we have had has been GREAT! I have been... More
