One of my favorite places anywhere to eat! Beautiful atmosphere, amazing food and wonderful service. I get the scallops and they never disappoint. We had Kelly for our waitress- she was fantastic and friendly! Can’t wait to go back!

JB Hook’s is one of the best places to go on the lake, hands down! The views are stunning, the food is delicious, and the staff is friendly and professional. Our server, Olivia, took great care of us and was knowledgeable about the menu.

Christopher was our waiter and he did an excellent job serving our table. He was very attentive and always a smile on his face. We ordered seven appetizers and drinks. I would recommend this place if you are visiting the lake

The wife and I spent an evening on their deck at sunset. We were just looking for a place to eat but the setting, the staff (Peggy and Racheal) and the food turned it into a romantic dining experience for us. The sun was setting...while a few boats could be seen seen in the distant lake surface. It was a really nice view. Peggy made sure we got it right.More

upscale restaurant on the lake that seems to be very popular at Lake of the Ozarks. We were seated at a table overlooking the Lake with great views. Our waitress was very experienced with great knowledge of the menu. All offering were good but very...expensive. Our meal was talipia with a couple of sides and a fish dish with a couple of sides. No drinks or deserts and the bill was $85 less a tip. Nice meal but expensive.More

We have been coming there for awhile and it seems like JB Hooks management is doing everything to cut costs, which I understand in this economy. They don't even have mints anymore! I mean it's the little things that are nice when you go in...a place and spend a lot of money especially since portion sizes seem smaller. The server we had was wonderful. She went out of her way to try to make sure we were happy, unlike the extremely rude female manager who is either drinking something hard or some sort of drugs! Anyway, like I said the waitress we had was awesome!More

JB Hooks is amazing! We love their welcoming atmosphere. Kind employees. Great appetizers and cold drinks. The wait service is attentive and kind. Special shout out to Shelly, Jerry and Eric. Jerry waited on us, and although he was hustling throughout the bar area, he...never forgot about us. Shelly worked through redeeming our online gift card and Eric ensured that we got our bonus $25 when buying our $100 gift card. Kindness goes a long way and JB Hooks has it in spades. It’s nice when they treat us like we are special too. Thanks to all who make JBHooks great! We love this gem! What a view!More

We went for date night on a Tuesday. The front hostess was SO nice, and a great first impression. Our server on the other hand, lacked personality and maybe had too many tables? The menu has a lot of options! We choose a seafood pasta...and the pork shank. The pasta was not very good… it had a VERY fishy taste and even my fish loving husband didn’t want to eat it. The pork was cooked perfect, but the dish was drowning in sauce. We honestly only ate maybe a quarter of the food. BUT- the French onion soup that we started with was FANTASTIC!More

My wife and I were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. Both meals were great I had Tilapia. My wife had a steak. The tilapia was really good, but the steak was outstanding. M wife raved about the steak so I tried a bite. It was...the tenderest steak I have ever had. The waiter (Johnny G.) said they had recently changed from angus to and all natural steak.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.
