This is a must for steak lovers! The best twice grilled prime rib I have ever tasted. A casual atmosphere with upscale food. Service was adequate but the food is outstanding and is the real star! Go and enjoy!

We were there on a Thursday night and sat at the bar for dinner. I ordered my usual dirty martini and asked if they had blue cheese stuffed olives. They didn't but he said he would make them for me if I would wait for a moment. (Of course) In no time I had my perfect martini! Dinner- we both... More

I ordered the kabob and the waiter said I should order more done than I want because the chef was under cooking. That should have been the tip off. I ordered medium well and the kabobs came rare. I had to send it back with the others in my party ate. When I got them back, they were well done... More

Ate here for the second time (1st visit was last year when we came to OBX) This is THE best restaurant. Staff is friendly - no stuffy dress code. Steaks cooked to perfection. There are plenty of other menu items if steak is not your thing. Full bar and decent wine listing. If I ever return to OBX I will... More

My wife and I are spending a week at Kitty Hawk and JKs was recommended to us by some of the locals. After a quick check on Trip Advisor, we decided to go there for dinner. We were seated within 10 minutes of arriving. While anticipating a longer wait, we sat at the bar and had a drink. Avery generous... More

JK's is by far the best dining experience in the Outer Banks. The service is great and the food is exceptional and exceeds my expectations when it comes to fine dining. Kudos to the staff and owner of JK's!

JK's is a family favorite -- nice folks, great service, and steaks worthy of a fine NYC steakhouse. What fun to enjoy them with my suit and tie left at home!

First night in town during a hectic summer of traveling and I wanted a good meal. I got a GREAT meal here!! Arrived without reservations and looking road-weary, they still made us feel so welcome. Had a drink at the bar as we waited for a table (brief wait!) And could tell it was all locals from the chit chat... More

The Outer Banks is a seafood kind of place, but at JK's, it's the steak you want. It doesn't matter which cut of beef you want, it comes out just right (we order everything medium well) and every ounce has great flavor. The salads and sides were good. The seafood is ok, but not noteworthy. Come for the steak!
