Standing chargrilled Ribeye was the best steak I have had on the OBX. Smoked dry rub Ribs where very good too - firm yet tender. Fried shrimp appetizer and Cobia where also enjoyable. Will definitely go again. Quality Food. Great service.

Every detail was perfect. Great apps, wine list, steaks. Caters to grown ups, which was nice! Get a sitter, it's worth it.

We have enjoyed JK's for the last 10 years. Their steaks are delicious, seafood specials are great and the atmosphere is the best. Service is way beyond exceptional and everyone looks like they enjoy working here. They make great martinis and have a great wine list as well. Highly recommend dining here.

My wife and I have eaten at JK's several times and each time the food and service has been excellent. We had our 40th anniversary supper there. It is not the cheapest place to eat but the quality of the food and service make it worth while.

Delicious food. Steak was absolutely wonderful and the salmon was the best salmon ever eaten. Waitress was so nice and full of information about the menu-we loved her. Red-skinned mashed potatoes were great as was the asparagus. Highly recommend this place!

The ribs, chicken, and steak are all great. The staff was awesome. One of the best steakhouses I've been too.

Fresh, simple yet tasty cuisine! Really enjoyed our visit, the manager even came to the tables to make sure the patrons were taken care of! The steak was excellent, the scottish salmon was spectacular, and the veggies were super fresh. If you want a really nice setting and a romantic dinner this is the place. It is pricy so there...

Dinner here Friday, May 1st. Never disappointed at JK's! Food and staff are super! Fine dining, but not stuffy. Very relaxed atmosphere. Steaks and filet mignon are cooked to perfection. I had the 5 ounce filet on this visit and my wife had the 'surf-n-turf' offering of grilled skewers of shrimp and filet medallions. Accompanying side of mashed potatoes (the... More

Our family was looking for a place to eat steak for dinner. JK's was recommended by hotel staff and we were not disappointed! I enjoyed the seafood bisque followed by the 5oz. Petite filet mignon. It was delicious. My husband had the 26oz Cowboy Bone-in Ribeye. Oldest son enjoyed the Yellowfin Tuna. Youngest son ordered the Mahi Mahi with crab... More
