Thank you for your business folks! I agree a "Must Stop" for anyone visiting the lake. With a daily $5.99 lunch special and 1/2 price appetizers during Happy Hour 6 days a week why not stop?

“One of my favorites at the lake!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

We have been to JB Hook's many times over the years and it is still one of my favorites at the lake. Besides the fantastic view, the food is always delicious...be it dinner or lunch. Last Monday, we took our grandkids there for lunch and they had hand-made milkshakes with their lunch! What a treat! I have to say, our waitress was one of the best we'd ever had, too! It just made for a perfect lunch experience.

“Great Service, Beautiful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

We decided at the last minute to stop in on a Friday evening during our weekend in the area. The parking lot looked nearly full, so we wondered how long the wait would be. When we walked in, beautiful piano music was playing, and the hostess seated us within minutes at a perfect table by the window/view! We ate appetizers based on our waiter's suggestions, which were on the mark. Delicious stuffed mushrooms. Our server was Johnny - very professional, attentive. In fact, he offered to take us out to the patio area for an even better view, and a few pictures. We certainly enjoyed our first visit and hope to be back!

“A Local Favorite ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

My husband and I frequently stop by JB Hooks for 'Happy Hour' - So much so, when we wander in, the Bartender begins making our Bloody Mary's! The waiter/waitress staff have become 'friends' - and we enjoy chatting with them to hear 'what's new' !

I often have lunch with friends at 'Hooks' - We've celebrated New Year's Eve here, enjoying a wonderful meal - And my husbands chooses 'Hooks' for his choice on his birthday !

THANKS 'JB HOOKS' FOR ALL THE GOOD FOOD, DRINKS AND FOR YOUR FRIENDSHIP !
