Excellent dining, extensive wine list, and amazing views of the lake. Happy hours and dining in the bar hour are fun, upbeat and often include piano playing. Fresh sea food bar that is made as ordered. Always make time to eat here! Best at the lake.

JB Hooks offers outstanding views of The Lake Of The Ozarks while you're dinning. I ordered the scallops from the menu and they provided a huge... More

The service, food, and view were perfect. We had surf and turf for dinner. The Alaskan King Crab was average, but the filet of steak was perfectly done with great flavor and tenderness. The drinks were also on par, we got the Lake Water cocktail. Jake, who served us, did a great job at recommending what to eat and drink.... More

Lets start with service. I have been in the restaurant business all my life. I always appreciate professional service. I was taken care of by Mike who obviously has made customer service a career. Thank you very much! I just stopped by for a few appetizers and an adult beverage. The grouper fingers and the Ahi tuna were exceptional. Great... More
