A week ago we went to JB Hook's for dinner. The food was excellent. Our waiter was Johnny and he was one of the best. He made our dinner more enjoyable by being happy, friendly, joking and efficient with our service. We will be sure to request him on our next visit. Keep up the good work Johnny

We were delighted to enjoy half-price appetizers and special drinks prices when we dropped during a recent road trip. The appetizers were delicious and the servings were generous. Tanna did an amazing job taking care of us. We will return! Our only disappointment was a nearby cigarette smoker.

The food was amazing & the service was even better. Our server, Jake, did a fantastic job. Would highly recommend the cremé brûlée!

We made a reservation and I made a point of saying we wanted to sit next to a window for an unobstructed view. I was told that was possible, and if not then we'd only have to wait 15 min for a window table. When we arrive we did not have a window table, and the wait for one would... More

This restaurant is a top choice for The Lake of the Ozarks. The dinners are excellent with excellent service & view of the lake. But the Happy Hour every day but Saturday is the best I have ever encountered. I especially want to thank Danielle, our bartender, for her wonderful attention & service.

It is hard to believe that in this day and age smoking is still allowed in places like this. The bar was very nice and, overall, JB Hooks is a very nice place. We sat at the bar for cocktails and had to leave after one. If the stench and inhalation of toxic fumes is your thing, this is your... More

Jake was an awesome waiter. He anticipated our needs and was very knowledgeable about the menu. Best steak and lobster I have ever had. Huge portions! I was having "food-gasms" with every bite!
