Everything was delicious! Didn't have to ask for refills and Jake was awesome with helping me pick something out that I would enjoy! I left happy not just by the amazing food, but also our server Jake!

JB Hooks is by far that best restaurant on Lake Ozark! Our server, Kim, was fantastic. She made several recommendations and each of them were outstanding. The atmosphere was lovely, the food/drink exceptional and the service was top of the line. GREAT EXPERIENCE! We will definitely be back!

We love this restaurant. They have one of the best lakeside views in town. If you like oysters, this is the place to get them. They have the best. The service has always been great any time we have been there. Anything you order is great. We always visit there when we are at the lake.

First time at Hooks, but not the last. Waiter Jake was very good and everything went well. Wife's Lobster tail was fantastic and by steak was great.

We were visiting for a conference and wanted a nice place to have dinner. A fellow teacher recommended JB Hooks. I am a very picky eater and had many questions. Jake was very patient and knowledgeable. He checked on our party frequently and kept up with our drinks. I will return to this restaurant again.
