The food was excellent and our server, Michael, was perfectly attentive. I ordered the scallops on a bed of spinach with chopped bacon ina light sauce. The hollondaise was wonderful. All steaks were served perfectly as requested.

They have happy hour 3-8pm nightly and I think all day Sunday. 1/2 price appetizers and drink specials. Appertzers are top notch and very affordable and can make a great dinner on their own. Went upstairs for dinner and had great table with view of lake and the food was very good. Great place would go back again.

Went there because of the TA rating. Service was AWFUL. Waited over 90 minutes for our food and when it came 2 had to be sent back. Others enjoyed theirs but the bad service was too much for us. Won't be back.

This is a restaurant with amazing views of Lake of the Ozarks. The lunch special was great. Our server, Natasha, helped make our experience at JB Hook's even better. She had a bubbly personality and made great recommendations. Her friendliness and great service will ensure that we will be returning to JB Hooks.
