The food is delicious. I wish the portion sizes were a bit larger, but it is tasty. The shrimp & grits, ribs and cornbread were my favorites. Nice atmosphere. Make sure you make a reservation.

We visited K & K's on a Sunday night and had to wait almost an hour, but it was very pleasant on the deck. The food was very good and the server was fun! I definitely recommend the corn bread and beef short ribs.
