Delicious meal - one had a filet mignon, the other an oyster appetizer and beet salad for main course. Friendly, knowledgeable and courteous staff. Highly recommend this fine dining experience.

Husband I and were travelling for our anniversary and his sister recommended this place to us. WOW!!! Great steaks and sides all around. Appetizers that could be entrees in and of themselves. And a dessert selection that was oh so good. This place is expensive, but it's worth it for a wonderful meal.

The staff was extremely warm and friendly and very helpful. The food was quite good and cooked to our specifications. My steak was a little more charred on the outside than I would like, but their steaks are grilled so that is one of the side affects. It was juicy and delicious on the inside. Huge salad and the baked... More

We had some friends visiting from Australia, so we really wanted to treat them to a special night and they were not disappointed. JK's in on my list for every visit to the OBX. The quality of food is high and they offer a great wine list. Ordered the dry rub ribs as an appetizer and the filet for main.... More

We go to JK Steakhouse every time we come to Outer Banks. It's my favorite restaurant. The steaks are delicious and the atmosphere is very laid back. This is the place to go if you want a great steak.

Steak was good and very well prepared, but even accounting for OBX tourist traffic, the prices here are on the high side. Not great value for money, but I'd eat here again if $ wasn't a factor.
