Once past the front door and rude hostess...worth it.

The hostess at the front door was rude and ignored us even though I made eye contact with her several times. Finally she asked, " if we had reservations?" I told her " We did @ 6." She asked," under what name?" I gave her my first and she quickly responded in a very rude way, " Well there has... read more

We had four couples that decided to celebrate Valentines dinner together. Six O’clock reservations were made at JBruners. Having never eaten there before I read online reviews. Most stated the food was good but somewhat overpriced. They charged premium prices for the entrees yet if you wanted a potato or salad you had to pay an additional 5.00 for the... More

J Bruners has always been one of the best restaurants at Lake of the Ozarks. The food is always good. The wine always tastes just fine. Appetizers are great especially the onion rings and the chicken livers with mushrooms. Friendly service

Once again J Bruners is excellent. The filet is wonderful, tender great flavor and always cooked perfectly. Started with French onion soup that was superb. Their baked potatoes are fluffy and the perfect compliment to the steak. Service was also excellent. Only thing missing is a view of the lake but when the food is this great didn't even miss...

Main course were not very savory for the price charge. Had sea bass an was told it was fresh but was a little fishy and plain seasoned for $29 . Probably would not go back... More

This is a great restaurant to take company to. There is a wide selection of dinner entries and the atmosphere is quite good. Even with a large group you can still hold a conversation with those across from you. If you happen to like onion rings, you might want to check it out. The exterior of the building is not... More
