Jks is a fantastic steakhouse, hands down. Their twice cooked prime rib is out of this world. It is sooooooo good you have to try it. The atmosphere is very relaxing and comfortable. We visit once a year, but wish we could come more often.

The best steaks on the Outer Banks! Food prices are in line with other OBX spots, and steakhouses off the OBX. Mixed drinks are pricy.

JKs was recommended to us. It was lovely to look at, but when the food came, I was not impressed. The steak seemed a little charred, the sides so-so. Nothing fancy for the fancy prices. The waitstaff was excellent. Extremely helpful, but they can't help...More
