Good service, marginal food

Service was excellent. We were in the bar area. Beer prices were reasonable for happy hour (2 for 1). We ordered appetizers assuming they were included in happy hour per a call I had made in advance. Apparently that was not the case. We had the bruschetta which I would definitely not... read more

Wife and I stopped here for our 2nd trip last Sunday afternoon (1-2pm). We had previously ate here a year prior, wasn't particularly impressed with their buffet that day, but decided to give it another chance and order off the menu. I can say the positives about this place are the decor, location, and overall presentation is just unique. The... More

Like always, the pizza was excellent. We got a medium, Ozark all meats. When they say 'all meat' they mean it. There was no skimping on the toppings. The cheese was melted just enough. We also ordered the Reuben dip appetizer. It was a little greasy, but what do you expect. It's corned beef and cheese. It was served with... More

This is exactly what you expect it to be. Good pizza, in a very interesting environment. The place is really dark inside, almost like it is always night. The pizza was really good, and came out fast. The blonde skinny bartender was very personable and pleasant, our server was not quite as memorable. I enjoyed my visit there although the... More

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.
