If you want steak, this is the place. Mesquite grilled, prime cuts, and it melts in your mouth. The ribs and chops are equally good. Come early in season. The service us superb. If you can get Summer as your waitress, do so.

First time we have been to JK's. Great food. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Shana was our waitress and was right on time with everything. We will definitely be coming back.

My family of 4 stopped here for dinner. We have found our new favorite place. Best food I think I've ever had. Great atmosphere with friendly staff. Seemed like the food was at our table in 5-10 mins.

Gourmet burgers cooked to perfection and customized to your liking! You have to go on Burger Night, and go hungry because the burgers are massive and delicious. Very friendly wait staff, very comfortable setting.

We love JK's dry ribs and usually buy several containers of the rub to take home. This year's dinner visit was a bit disappointing. The food wasn't up to par compared to past years. The restaurant is also expensive compared to other nice restaurants in...More

This place serve only the best cuts of meat on the beach, the ribs and chicken and don't forget the quail. Make sure you have an oyster salad. Crazy good, bring your wallet.
