This is a terrific place. Great ambience, great service (Shana) and great food. Had one of the best burgers I have ever had in my life! Known for their steaks, I will be back!

The tobacco onion rings are delicious and crunchy. The filet mignon cooked medium was crisp on the outside and tender inside. The prime rib special was cooked to perfection. The bread! The butter! YES!!

We eat here quite often and the food is consistently delicious every time. The service is always good, as well. Make sure you go to Burger Night in the offseason—best burger and fries you’ll ever eat!

JK’s is a favorite for good steaks and warm ambience. We always dine there when visiting the Outer Banks. Excellent service, superb drinks, and wood-grilled fare make it a delightful dining experience.
