We chose to eat at JB Hooks on this trip to Osage Beach because of their menu and the great view. I had the delicious grouper and my husband splurged and had the lobster feast - 1 lb. lobster tail, crab stuffing, 6 large scallops, and several shrimp, plus a salad and side dish. It would have been a good... More

Food was delicious as usual but what made the evening was the great service received from Johnny Grist. Wine and fish recommendations were spot on. Thanks Johnny we will be back soon.

We started in the bar/lounge for a great happy hour with fabulous blues. The singer was Cheryl Lynn and sings at a couple places in the area, you shouldn't miss her. Half price drinks and half price appetizers were featured and were delicious. The view was killer with inside and outside seating. We then went upstairs to the dining area... More
