Fun place & Great pizza!

JJ Twigs is a fun place to hang out and they have great pizza. We always get the veggie pizza and it is always delicious. We also had the breadsticks with marinara sauce. It wasn't busy as this is the off season at The Lake. My husband loves the free peanuts.

We love their pizza but their salads and other offerings are great too! We love that they serve peanuts in the shell to every table. Its decorated in the cabin style and its welcoming, comforatable and cozy plus we love their fish tanks to look at! Very fun family restuarant.

Title says it all. Didn't feel cheated... price was ok. But the food was just ok too. Servers were friendly but short-handed the day we were there.

We have dined "in" at JJ's on other Ozarks visits and have found the staff to be rude and unattentive. Once, when we asked the bar tender (main bar) if we could sit at a table in the bar, he said, "I don't care where you sit but if you sit in here, I'm not going to wait on you... More

My husband and I frequently visit Lake of the Ozarks and JJ Twigs always seems packed. We had spent a the day looking at lake property and needed a place to eat before heading back to Omaha.

They call it a pizza place but we enjoyed delicious BBQ ribs and NY Strip. The baked potato was cold, however. We will certainly go back again.

Love having a place close by to get a Chicago style pizza and a good beef sandwich. Great place to watch a game with some drinks and apps. Daughter loved having her birthday party there with a "make your own pizza" for all the kids.

Ordered pizza for condo delivery. Delivery was prompt, pizza was hot. Good variety to choose from. Amazing that they delivered on time when here are so many condo complexes to keep straight.
