“JK's is Incredible”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Found JK's on trip advisor and I am so glad we ate here. From the food to the service to the atmosphere, it is a must place to eat if you vacation in the OBX. We all ate something different from chicken to seafood. They are known for their great, aged steaks, but anything you get there is going to be good. It is a nice rustic and clean atmosphere with a friendly staff and great service. I will say this is probably not a place that would be conducive for young children. You will not be disappointed if you eat here. You may have to wait because it is popular, but it is well worth the wait.

“Great meal and ambience”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

We enjoyed a meal here at dinner with a friend who is a local. Right much more pricey than what we usually pay but we got three appetizers that were delicious. We were put in a small room with two tables and it was perfect for talking and visiting. Waiter was very attentive and helpful.

“Wonderful restaurant- Great wine list”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

We were delighted to find this restaurant to be adult friendly and geared more for those looking to dine, rather than just sit down and eat. Food was delicious, staff was extremely friendly. It was nice not to have the restaurant packed with screaming children as most places seem to be on the Outer Banks. Give this restaurant a try if you enjoy sitting with friends, sipping wine and dining on delicious food.
