Rick did a great job as our server, he was very polite and attentive. He met all of our needs during the meal. We have had Rick as our server in the past and he has always done an awesome job.

We have dined here at least 10 times in the past year. ALWAYS, wonderful food and fabulous service. The view of the lake is to die for. The food is always well prepared, hot when it reaches our table and exquisitely displayed. My only complaint...is their dessert menu is limited. Rick was our server this past Sunday ( we have had him before) and he is great. Well informed of the menu, friendly but not overly attentive to the place of intrusive - just right.More

My son took me to JB Hook’s to treat me to lobster as he claimed they had the best. He was spot on. Not only was the the lobster cooked to perfection making it the best ever but we were very fortunate to have Olivia...as our server. She was a delight and made our dinner even more special. Olivia is who every diner desires in a server and every restaurant wants as a valued employee.More

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

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.
