We go to JK Steakhouse every time we come to Outer Banks. It's my favorite restaurant. The steaks are delicious and the atmosphere is very laid back. This is the place to go if you want a great steak.

Steak was good and very well prepared, but even accounting for OBX tourist traffic, the prices here are on the high side. Not great value for money, but I'd eat here again if $ wasn't a factor.

Lovely environment, professional wait staff, QUIET. (We loathe places that slam tables next to other tables, and play loud music). Even if the atmosphere weren't A+, the food would have compensated. Oh, my, every bite of the grill roasted prime rib with creamed spinach was delightful. The salad with 10+ lightly friend oysters sent me to the moon. The desserts... More

Ate here during a guys' golf weekend on 9/10/16. This is a great place for steaks and I ordered the 12 oz. strip. I was well seasoned and cooked to order. The mashed potatoes served were fresh and aspargus were fine - I thought the aioli was a bit lemony, but it was fine. My friend ordered a side ceasar... More

Prime rib special and ribeye steak were quite popular on a recent Friday with our group. Waitress was very good and attentive as well as the other staff members. Felt things were overpriced a bit.

Fine dining at its best! The steaks are delicious, tender and no steak sauce needed! Service was also excellent!

Have had many birthdays celebrated here. The steaks, although pricy, are delicious and full of flavor. Ribeye steak, filet mignon, are the two choices we usually go with. I'm looking forward to our next visit, coming up soon! We are usually seated in a smaller dining area, which makes it nice and quiet.

The moment we walked in we were greeted by the friendly host and promptly seated in a beautifully decorated setting. Our waiter, Dan was fantastic. So knowledgable and nice, he made the delicious food even better by knowing exactly what we needed without us asking. I got the petite filet mignon with seasoned mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. It was... More

This is our annual OBX tradition...the chef is outstanding and steaks are their speciality. Highly recommend the Ribeye Chop. Flavorful and juicy and melt in your mouth! Service is professional and friendly. Thank you Austin for making our dinner delightful!

Chose this place as our "nice-night-out-dinner" for a family get together. Nine people (two kids under 5 who shared a meal), total bill with tax, tip and drinks about $380. Steaks seems to be about $35 and most of us ordered a steak. They were very good. The bread they bring out is the best I've ever had at a... More
