This is a first class restaurant for steaks and seafood. The ribeye was seasoned perfectly and the halibut was topped with crabmeat. Go early because they do not take reservations. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. Highly recommended place to eat if you don't want anymore buffets.

JK’s was amazing. Price is well worth the quality food and service. Our steak was cooked perfectly and was delicious. Our waiter Michael was wonderful. He was attentive and funny. We will always make this a go to on our yearly vacation.

Great atmosphere, service, and choices......you can't go wrong with any choice here! Steaks, seafood, chicken, ribs, salads and much more. Best service! Bread is melt in your mouth also. Extensive wine list as well. Off season (Sept-May) Burger nites on Mondays and Thursdays are a big hit with the locals. Don't forget to try the tobacco onion straws as an appetizer!

Can’t say enough about our server, Dennis Perry. Superb friendly and attentive. We dined there twice during a recent OBX trip. Steaks both times, ribeye and filet, perfectly done, excellently seasoned. Sides of mashed potatoes and asparagus. Asparagus also expertly done, crisp and tender. Dessert was peach raspberry cobbler and brownie pie. Excellent desserts but know the cobbler changes based on the available seasonal fruit. Top it all off with a stellar wine list and this is a truly 5 star dining experience. An additional very nice touch, the chef/owner stops by the tables to ask if they have met expectations

We came here for our anniversary, and we enjoyed fine dining, delicious food, and superb and friendly service. The owner/cook even stopped by our table for feedback on our experience. Highly recommend JK’s for a fine dining experience in the Outer Banks!
