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.

JKs was awesome! My boyfriend and I decided to check it out on our last night in the OBX. We had the tobacco flour shrimp as an appetizer which were delicious. Then he had the red drum and I got the roasted and grilled chicken. The mashed potatoes as the side were the best mashed potatoes I've ever had in... More
