We had an amazing experience at JB Hooks! The food was fantastic! We struggled with deciding what to order but our server Jake was very knowledgeable of the menu which made it easier. I went with the Salmon and my husband had the Walleye. No regrets! The service was amazing! If you get Jake as a server you’re in luck! We will be going back for sure!

Had a fabulous meal for second time. If you love steak like we do order the Omaha 1881 ... so good! Taylor K was the best - perfect amount of attention never had an empty drink - left in a happy little food coma! 😬

We were celebrating our 20th anniversary. The food was great although a little over priced in my opinion. Service was great. Taylor K was our waitress and she was great. Main complaint is that we referenced a special occasion when booking and no mention was made of it. Past few years we have done Baxter’s for our anniversary and they take your picture, put it in a nice card and give you a complimentary dessert. Not even a mention at JB Hooks. After a $200 dinner meal, we walked away feeling like it just another dinner. Yes, food was good but next time, we will go to Baxter’s for a special occasion. Unlike some people, spending that kind of money on a dinner is out of the norm and would have at least appreciated an acknowledgement of our special occasion which again, should have been noted in our reservation.

We came here for my 30th birthday. The food was amazing. I got the filet and lobster, both were fantastic. The lobster tail was huge and had great flavor. The filet was tender and cooked perfectly. My husband had the prime rib and said it was very good. Our server, Jake, gave us excellent service. He was very friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend!

JB Hooks is our favorite upscale dining restaurant whenever we are at the lake. The food is excellent, servers are always very attentive and the views of the lake are amazing! They also have a great happy hour on the bar side of the restaurant with appetizer and drink specials and live music. Try it out, you won’t be disappointed!

Our server (Jake) was one of the best, most attentive and kind servers we've ever experienced. Very professional with great presentation and communication skills. We can only hope we have him again the next time we go back...and we will go back! The ambiance and atmosphere was wonderful! Not loud like a bar but very quiet and romantic, just like I requested for my husband's birthday celebration. The food was very flavorful and wonderfully presented.

Johnny G. Was an excellent server, very accommodating. Food was great, a little expensive but I guess that is the price for a first class establishment. Overall a great experience for my wife and I. We had King Crab and Prime Rib with a plate of raw oysters.

Music background was/is inappropriate for such a superb dinning venue. The music by the "supremes" was annoying. Why not select music that is soft and romantic such as piano solo music or music by Kool and Clean etc?

We had a wonderful dinner at JB Hooks. The scallops and filet were awesome. Our waiter, Jake, was smoother than Cheese Wiz in serving us. Jake is the “big buck” of the dining room coordinating our service needs with the other wait staff on his team. There aren’t any antlers being shed here, just a wonderful dining experience and a great way to start 2021!
