A fine-dining restaurant with delicious local food! I would recommend the chicken piccata with rice and green beans if you're unsure on what to order. The food was great, and the atmosphere is cozy and calm. Our server and waiter were extremely knowledgeable about the restaurant's history, food supply and preparation methods.

It was a Saturday night at 6 and the place was not busy. The up side of our meal was the oyster appetizer, lightly breaded with chimichurri and horseradish dipping sauces. The table bread was crisp and delicate. The rest was uneven. The mixed grill had crab cake-good, hot nice flavor-tuna over done-the steak kibbob, returned as over done, nice... More

In the non-tourist season, JK's features burger night every Thursday, mostly catering to the local crowd. And turn out, they do. We had about a 25 minute wait to be seated, which was not unexpected. But the burgers we both had were worth the wait. Burgers are, STEAK, LARGE, and come with choice of cheeses, mushrooms, onions, etc, and a... More

Great food, service, & surroundings! I love the seafood bisque & most recently I ordered the mixed grill. The beef was very tender, the crab cake was awesome, and the tuna was delicious. A great experience, every time!

First time eating here. Will definitely go back. Expensive but worth it. Ribeye steak was perfect. Mashed red potatoes and roasted butternut squash. Our waitress was wonderful. Went in December and they were extremely busy for a Thursday night. Great place to eat!!

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
