JK’s Steak & Seafood Restaurant
A local’s favorite, JK’s is a perfect dinner date with a cozy atmosphere that also includes a fine dining experience. JK’s serves only the finest, freshly harvested meats. Their flavorful choice meats are aged in-house for over 30 days and cut by our own “In-House” butcher. Their seafood comes fresh off the docks from friends and chicken is raised – free range. JK’s can serve as your date night or a great family dinner as well. With a kids menu and a take-out menu, you have several options! On Monday and Thursday nights, JK’s has “Burger Nights,” when you can build your own burger. Burger nights are one of our favorites!
