First time trip to outer banks. Ate twice at JK's it was so good. Steak and seafood out of this world. Owner friendly and accommodating. Can't go wrong here. We will return here on our next trip to Outer Banks.

Friendly staff, freshest foods, and the best steaks on the beach. We had a great evening & know this is where to go when you want great steaks cooked just like you want them! Lively bar and attentive waiters too. Even the manager came by to ask how our meal was. Can't go wrong at JK's!

We had our anniversary dinner here and the food was amazing! The waitress was super sweet and attentive even though they were really busy. The steaks were cooked to perfection and everything was delicious!!

Great steak and ribs every time. What always surprises me though is how much I love their in season vegetables -- delicious.

Hope you're lucky enough to get soft shell crabs in-season. Maytag salad was delicious too. Pricey, so be prepared.

Super steak and seafood restaurant. A little fancier than your typical outer Banks restaurant. Substantial salads, fresh seafood and aged steaks. Very attentive staff. Great wine list and full bar.

From the outside this place doesn't look like much. I'll bet some potential diners have past by because of this. That was their misfortune. We have had wonderful meals from coast to coast and internationally and at JK's we had one of the best ever. It might have been an accident but the number of guests on a Monday night... More 

Thank Putterface
