The food and the service (Jake) were wonderful. Jake took the time to answer any questions and to interact with a toddler we had with us. The level of noise, though, interfered with the overall enjoyment of the meal which was delicious - you just couldn't talk to your dinner companions.

Excellent food, service (JOHNNY GRIST), for first timers. Our server went the extra mile explained everything and made sure our experience was memorable. Quality and preparation of the meals was first rate. Will certainly revisit when in the area In the future.

We have been going to the Ozarks for 40 plus years and just added JB Hooks to our list of restaurants to eat at while on our vacation. It has become one of our favorite places. The food is spectacular, the view is breath taking and the service is just outstanding. It has a comfortable atmosphere and they have always... More

The music on Tuesday evenings, Friday evenings and Sunday afternoon is wonderful with Michael V. on piano on Tuesdays and Sundays and a combo with... More

We've only gone to this restaurant twice. Both times have been unremarkable. Now I do have others that say they always go there to get steak and lobster (which by the way market value this weekend was $110.00 a plate for that). So being from St. Louis, which has airports where the seafood is flown in fresh daily, I'm not... More

We always make a point of coming to this restaurant every time we are at The Lake. We don't mind paying $200 for a meal that deserves it and JB Hooks always exceeds those expectations. Our service is usually excellent and the food is delicious. That explains why this visit was such a disappointment. The server never told us her... More

5 star 100%. Excellent food and service for the money. Feast 4 people with desert for less than two at Ruth Chris. I had Filet and 16 oz lobster tail. Excellent. Worth every penny.
