“Very good service, meal and atmosphere all in one!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I were out for our anniversary/valentines dinner, went to JB Hooks for an awesome dinner date! We had the steak/lobster special and it may be a little pricey but as they say you get what you pay for! The steak and lobster both just melted in your mouth! I think it was the best we have ever had! The service was great, ask for Tony he made our evening very enjoyable! Thanks JB Hooks for a job well done!

“Expensive but worth it:)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

At our table we had the crab rangoon and the smoked trout for appetizers. The trout was good but it was a very small portion.. The crab rangoon were very lame in quality. All of our entrees were fabulous. We had the strip special... Perfect. The grouper...perfect. The lobster tail and filet........hmmmm what do you say about a 1 lb Australian lobster tail??? Incredible! However, we wish we had just ordered the tail. And finally, trenados? They were great as well. Overall very satisfied with our experience. But oh so expensive.

Thank you for your business folks. We have been famous for many years for that one pound lobster tail. Everyone oohs and ahhs over it. Glad to hear you had a good time and I will look into your comments about the rangoons. We look forward to your next visit.

Went here last year on the way to the condo. Food was excellent! Great view overlooking the lake! Food was a little expensive but, well worth the price.

“A great night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We had a fabulous night at JB Hooks. Started with a couple cocktails in the bar. The service was great we had an appetizer and couple cocktails then moved up to the restaurant for dinner.

The service at dinner was great. The manager stop by twice during dinner to insure all was perfect. We both had a steak & shrimp dinner. Everything was prepared as ordered and delicious.

We finished the evening in the bar listening to piano playing and visiting with others.

I highly recommend JB Hooks for a night out
