  • Good steak, Prix Fixe a good deal

    Food was good and comparable to other steakhouses. We went on a Monday night and was slow so only one server and one runner. As it got busier service slacked off but they were courteous. I would recommend it and I would go back. The Prix Fixe either 3 course or 4 courses is creative and a good value. It made the decisions easy.

    Food is always good. Only suggestion would be that they do a better job with seating reservations on time. If you have a reservation, you shouldn't have to wait 30 minutes to get seated. It makes people want to think twice about reserving a table here.

    I took my son to this restaurant before a show at the Mayo theatre. It was a last minute reservation and they were able to take us. The restaurant was crowded but they were able to sit us immediately. The waiter arrived promptly to open my wine and ask my son’s drink order. When he came back with my son’s soda he took our food order. That was the last time we saw him. He never came back to refill my son’s soda, ask if we needed bread or to check on our food. I had the tuna tartare appetizer. The tuna had no taste and I don’t think it was sushi grade. My son had the Cesar salad (which he comment that the dressing was red!). The lettuce looked old and tasted fair. I wasn’t feeling that hungry so I ordered the garlic shrimp appetizer as my meal. It was just ok, nothing special. My son had the rack of lamb. I can’t speak for him but he did eat it all. We had to ask for the check, which was brought by one of the bus people. The hostess took my credit card. I will not go back. Very expensive for the tasteless food and poor staff.

    We tried this restaurant a year ago. The service was average. A person in our party had a steak that didn't taste good and didn't smell right. We thought we'd give it another try. The service was slow. At one point the waiter disappeared for 20-30 minutes. A person in our party ordered fish. It was served not fully cooked... sent it back....came out uncooked again. 3rd time was a charm. Unfortunately, be the time they cooked the fish correctly, they rest of the party was finished eating. Not going back. Service was terrible and the food was dissappointing.

    Waited 30 minutes to be suited for a reservation in a venue that lacks a suitable waiting area. In the end, the meal was worth wait. It was a crowded Saturday night, with tables situated so close together, the wait staff could not pass. The staff made best efforts to compensate for the crowd. BYOB and very good food stays on my list.

    After a bad experience for my birthday the previous year, J&Ks redeemed themselves. We had a group of 10 having a dinner to celebrate my birthday and then head out to a show at MPAC. Service was attentive, food was great and they did their best to keep us on schedule to head out to the show on time. It was a great night and it reminded me why J&Ks had been my go to place with the exception of once. Thanks!

    Haven't been here in 2 years and was disappointed by the service and a few of the food items. We chose the fixed price option. Garlic shrimp appetizer was fair. Salads were good - both Caesar and mixed. Steaks were very good, but two in our party requested medium/rare and steaks were medium/well. We tried to find our server, but gave up after five minutes. Also, the fries that the server told us came with "each meal" were served family style and the portion for four was smaller than a fast food restaurant's dollar menu. If we would have known, we'd have ordered another side. Desserts were great. Fix the service and you'd have happier diners.

    JK is really a great value compared to the "high end" steak houses in Morris County. Their steaks are as good or better than their offerings at lower prices, and the prix fix offerings make a complete meal for a very reasonable cost. Throw in the fact they are BYOB and you have a winner in the heart of Morristown!

    There are lots of restaurants in Morristown but J&K Steakhouse is our all time favorite. We are treated like family. The food comes out hot and plentiful as well as cooked to perfection! The BYOB factor is wonderful for us too. The wait-staff is professional and attentive. It does get a little noisy if the entire restaurant is full but then that depends on how raucous the patrons are.

    A great spot in Morristown, especially for a pre-show dinner. I would also recommend going early since the noise level does pick up after more tables are full. The steaks were excellent and the service very friendly. The BYOB keeps the bill reasonable.

    We were very excited to try this BYO steakhouse in Morristown.We both ordered the NY Strip, my bf the 17oz&me the 14oz.When the steaks arrived we could tell immediately they looked very different.My bf's was very good, nice & tender & cooked medium well just the way he likes it.Mine on the other hand, I had to saw it in order to cut it.It wasn't because it was over cooked, it was slightly pink in the center.Just all around a tough cut of meat.The waiter offered to bring me a new one & I accepted in hopes for a better steak.It was only a tad better than the first.The waiter was apologetic & said he would let the mgr know.They did the right thing&took it off the bill&gave us free dessert.We still will not return.

    Ate at J&K recently before a show at the Performing Arts Center. The quality of the meat wasn't up to the usual standards, as both the NY Strip and bone-in Ribeye at our table were on the chewy, sinewy side, although still flavorful. I also don't think my Ribeye was 16 oz. as advertised on the menu. To the restaurant's credit, the 10oz. filets were tender and cooked medium rare as ordered. The salads and sides were all tasty. This has been a reliable BYO steakhouse for us and I would still recommend it; but it's on the watch list now for a potential decline in quality. Hopefully, this was just a one-time disappointment.

    I expected the food to be much better. I had the porterhouse steak and was disappointed in how it was prepared. It tasted OK but was not charred well and did not look very appetizing. I don't usually review places but this was not great at all. Better off at roots. Or better yet take the drive to Don Pepe's Steakhouse

    We live in the neighborhood and really enjoy going to J&K. You are greeted by Susan who has the most wonderful energy! She is always happy to greet guests coming in for dinner. Our server Jeff was very attentive to my special requests (due to a restricted diet) and the food arrived perfectly as desired! The restaurant is a bit loud which can be distracting. Overall our food was really good, the service was also great and we'll be back again.

    The reservation was made for a Saturday evening, unaware of a sold-out performance at the theater. We usually check when dining in Motown, especially on weekends, but oops, didn't! Susan, the most personable and awesome lady EVER, called me to let me know that she would do her best to accommodate my request of a corner table, but a window table was probably not going to happen, due to theater crush. As it turned out, our table was in a corner, and certainly more than ok that it was not near the window. The prices, as has been stated, are very good for a steak, especially if a prix fix is chosen. Very good food and excellent service. AND Susan really made us feel very special! What an asset she is to this restaurant!!!

    The food was good but... I had to find the hostess after 15 minutes of sitting to find out who our waiter was. Once we were acknowledged the good cane out at a Hal hazard rate. I was eating my soup and my steak was brought to the table. The staff was overwhelmed. The food was good so I would give them another try.

    My experiences at steakhouses have been mostly hit or miss over the years. Michael Jordan's and Arthurs's - definitely didn't live up to their reputations. Smith & Wollensky's - pretty good. But J&K Steakhouse...to put it simply, I was wowed! A chorizo appetite that was as good as any I've had at a restaurant in the Ironbound section of Newark. An iceberg salad with onion, tomato, bleu cheese crumbles and bacon that could have been a meal unto itself. A reasonably priced prix fixe 3-course meal with a wonderfully prepared 10 oz. filet mignon. Were it not for the fact that we had to cut the meal short to catch a show down the street at the Mayo Performing Arts Center, I'm confident that I would've enjoyed the molten chocolate cake.

    The food was very good. Salads great and steaks perfect. The service was very poor. We think that the waiter may have been new so he shouldn't have been solo on a Saturday night. We had to ask for bread on the table twice. Asked for wine bucket 3 times but never got one. He never checked on us at any point unless to come and take an order. Thank goodness the food was perfect.

    I should have ordered steak, since this is a steak house. Decided to try the swordfish but it was a little dry. The mashed potatoes tasted a little odd (it was a flavor, not a freshness problem). My husband said that his steak was OK, but not the caliber from the first two times we dined there. Maybe it just was a fluke; my son said his steak was very goo.

    J&K Steakhouse in Morristown was just a random option for dinner with a friend. I made a reservation for 7:30 on a Friday night. Realizing at 7:00 that I was never making my reservation due to storms in the area and traffic, I called to let them know, to which I was told - take your time, we will get you situated when you get here, don't rush, just be safe. When I finally arrived at 8:30 running in like a lunatic scouring the crowd for my friend, I was greeted by the same person from the phone who called me by name and gave me a hug hello for making it in one piece. Even I could forget that my rack of lamb was cooked perfectly or the fact that it's a BYOB (so rare to find in a steakhouse), I will never forget the love I felt that night.
