We love this restaurant! Everything about it is 5 stars. The presentation of the food, taste, servers, I could go on and on. We had the pleasure of talking with one of the owners John, he has personality plus! Our server Jana, again the best. They care about their customers. Each year that we are here we make it a...

Everything about this place was perfect, from the perfectly timed service to the excellent meal. I had the filet mignon and my husband the cowboy steak. We went for our 24th anniversary and really enjoyed the cozy romantic feel of the restaurant. The onion soup was divine and our waitress perfectly wonderful. Kudos JK

As always, excellent! From the rib appetizer to the Rib Eye steak. Green Beans with bacon was great. And the mashed potatoes were some of the best I've had in a long time. Never a disappointing meal at JK's. Manager made sure to come over and make sure everything was excellent and it was. Server (unfortunately I can't remember his... More

My husband and I were in Nags Head for a few days and decided to enjoy a nice dinner at JK's. The steaks were wonderful, great flavor. The atmosphere was nice and the wait staff did an excellent job. Thank you.

This is a must when we come to the OBX! Yes, it's a bit pricey but so worth it! My husband and son compare to every steak they eat which is unfair! LOL! Seriously we can not vacation here unless we eat here. You won't regret it!

Last night of our vacation - entire family ate here. Food was excellent. Service was excellent as well. Great steaks and seafood! Good wine and beer selections as well. No reservations but that is very common on the OBX.

After a day at the beach and no proper meal, I saw the sign and decided to have dinner at the bar. Wow! The bartender was excellent. I wanted a salad but the place is known for steak so he suggested a Caesar with a filet kabob. Perfect! It was served with the most delicious baguette. The steak was phenomenal.... More

My husband and I recently went to JK's after many of our friends had suggested going there. We decided to go there for our 11th Anniversary. What a good choice! The food was awesome. I had the best steak I've ever had. The potatoes practically melted in our mouths. The wine was delicious and the service was top notch. We... More

When we are in the mood for a steak this is our choice. The quality is worth the price. The only bad thing...get there early there's always a line.
