Server Talya

The food was excellent. The server was the highlight of our night. Talya was new but very thorough and funny. We really enjoyed her.

The service is excellent and the bar is a great place to watch basketball and meet new friends! Tumbleweed was phenomenal.

I had the pleasure of endulging myself at JB Hooks. I was in Missouri visiting family when we stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant. The food was not only wonderful but the service was amazing as well. Our server was Talya, she had only been working a couple days, but she knew what she was doing and had a great personality....

Restaurant was clean and neat. Employees were all happy and pleasant. Our waitress (Natasha) was excellent. She made suggestions to insure that our meals were the best they could be. I was in a party of 4 and all of us loved our meals. Plus it looked over the lake. Great view. Noticed in the evenings there is live music.... More
