The food was delicious, the waiter (Jake) was excellent (not overbearing or too attentive--just right!), and the view was so lovely!

We had heard great reviews about JB Hooks Happy Hour. Delicious half priced appetizers. Not your run of the mill bar food. Must try the grouper fixed in the most unusual way. I loved the homemade peach sangria Beautiful views of the lake. One of the best Happy Hours in the area. Will comeback soon
