JB Hook’s Restaurant at Business US 54 and County Route MM overlooking the Lake of the Ozarks Community Toll Bridge at Shawnee Bend. The Lake’s Best Happy Hour—two-for-one drinks and half price appetizers. Extensive appetizer menu includes wings, shrimp, mushrooms, tuna, steak, crab, grouper, calamari, and trout. No wonder it’s the TripAdvisor #1 ranked restaurant in Lake Ozark, Missouri.

We ate here two nights in a row. Warmly greeted by Savannah. Kim, our server was professional and prompt. The food was well prepared, fresh and excellent. The views from our table best on the lake.

Okay, if you are not willing to spend money for a superb meal-this is not the place for you! Is it pricey? Yes, but here is why: * The service from the Hostess, to the Busboys, to the Server (Absolutely Fantastic) and the Manager (who checked on every table when I was there) was SUPERB! * The food (from the...

He was not just attentive but he also was sociable, friendly, kind and helpful. His recommendations were spot on. His smiles and easy-going demeanor really made our visit extra enjoyable. We each had two different grouper dishes and they both... More
