JKs service always exceeds expectations. Steak and accompaniments always perfectly done. Save room for dessert. Go on a weekday to avoid weekend crowds

I love this restaurant. This is my preferred place to grab a steak or one of the specials. The tobacco fried shrimp are excellent and the owner keeps a great wine list. Ask him to decant one of his favorites for you.
