WOW! What a wonderful restaurant. Monday to Friday I recommend getting there between 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM...(no crowd)...and getting one or more of their fabulous half-priced appetizers. Also on Sunday...more fabulous half-priced appetizers ALL DAY LONG. The lake view is spectacular. Nice outdoor and inside dining.

My husband and I had the amazing experience of eating at JB Hook's Restaurant last Friday. We had been disillusioned with the difficulty of getting to the Osage Beach Outlet Mall. The way the signs and roads are constructed it was a very on edge experience. The JB HOOKS Restaurant had been recommended to me by an employee at the... More

We went here our first night in the area. wow, was it beautiful on the outside deck. We had a few cocktails and watched the sun set. How romantic!! Their entree choices are extensive.

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.
