Traveling up the coast toward home North, a local recommended this place and we were not disappointed. I had the "prime rib chop" (the one in the photo) and my partner had the tenderloin and grilled shrimp. Both were done perfectly and delicious. Ambiance was...More

Let's start there.......I moved down to OBX a year ago, and the thing I'm most teased about----I didn't eat meat, until I met John and started eating at JK'S. Outstanding, friendly staff. The steaks, chops, fish are all out of this world. His wine selection...More

During non-tourist season, JKs features their burgers on Monday and Thursday evenings. These are not processed or frozen burgers, but really thick ground steak - after all, it is a steak house. You can get cooked any way you like it, and with any garnishes/additives...More
