I was really hoping for more but the overall theme of this review is bland. When we arrived I thought the place looked great with wonderful views, and the people were very nice. So the first thing we ordered was the blue point oysters. Ive...had them a lot of times but these were completely flavorless. I’m guessing they sat in fresh water too long because the salinity nowhere to be found. We then ditched the oysters and ordered the stuffed mushrooms and found them to be bland as well. As for the entrees, my wife got the filet and I got ahi tuna. Hers was average at best and mine was fantastic, although my side of wild rice was also flavorless, needed chicken bouillon for sure, Then for an after dinner drink my wife ordered a brandy Alexander which was also bland. Just tasted like vanilla ice cream with nutmeg, no brandy flavor to be found whatsoever. So all in all I really liked the place and people, but it was a lot of money for a subpar dinner.More

JB Hooks has always been one of our favorite restaurants. But our last few trips have been disappointing. Last night, a group of eight, four of us were happy four of us were really disappointed. One of the worst pieces of prime rib I’ve ever...had in my life, the filet mignon was overcooked, The grouper was over cooked. It was just a bad night all around.More

This restaurant is consistently top notch! The service, food, ambiance and cocktails are far superior to anywhere else at the lake! We were blessed with Jackie as our server tonight. She is charismatic, knowledgeable and an all around fabulous server! Thank you Jackie and JB...HOOKS for a delightful birthday dinner!More

The staff was very attentive to my alpha-gal allergy, but choices were limited. I had a plain baked potato and a blackened mahi. Many of the sides had butter and were not an option. The view at sunset from our table was incredible and we...thoroughly enjoyed our relaxed time there.More

Shorts and a polo shirt attire will work. I looked at the photo from our event and found that Is what a majority of the men in our party wore. Some did opt for slacks. One even wore jeans.
