“Mashed potatoes and steak?”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Liked the booths that make up the seating arrangement, but felt the vegetables and mashed potatoes that accompanied the steak did not really go.
Quite expensive

“Consistently Good”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

One of my favorite restaurants on the Outer Banks. Having lived here since 1976, we have been thru all stages of this great place, last night, same as always, great. When you meet friends as soon as you walk in, that's a good sign. Quail salad, baby back ribs, and grilled Wahoo. All perfect, service fantastic, and this being my wife's birthday and our anniversary today, it topped everything off.

“Great Steak”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

My boyfriend & myself went to JK's on a Sunday evening. The atmosphere was calm and relaxing. He had the filet mignon and I had the rib eye chop... Delicious! We were hoping for a nice place as we were celebrating my boyfriend's birthday and were visiting the OBX area for a long weekend. We got lucky in this choice of restaurant. Our server was very nice & attentive, and it really topped off our whole trip. Of course the meal was more pricier then other places we had eaten at while in North Carolina, but we had planned that this particular meal was going to be special and it is the price you pay for a good steak place. We do not regret a single penny spent there.

“Unexpectedly Romantic”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Do NOT judge this restaurant by it's exterior. My husband and I were debating going in even while opening the door...once inside it was a pleasant surprise. Dark wood and booths everywhere, and you couldn't help but notice they purposely spread out the guests (giving a little privacy). Our waitress, Kelly was very knowledgeable about the dishes as well as the wines. She had a way of making you feel welcome, without invading your space! Appetizer: Tobacco fried Shrimp, had a nice crispy coating, and was very light not heavy like most fried food. Caesar salad: great dressing and plenty to split between two people. For dinner: Filet was cooked perfectly with just mesquite flavor (perfect), green beans with bacon dressing was yummy and crisp (for once perfect veggies! Baked potato even had kosher salt coated on skin! Delicious...will definitely be back in the years to come!
