    As always the food was excellent and service from Rick and team was 5 star. We had a group of 6. And while it was a busy weekend the pace of service was perfect. Was always enjoy our dining experiences at JB’s. It is truly an icon at the Lake.

    Wonderful view. We felt the price was too inflated. Our meal was $138.00 with tip but no drinks. (Water only). The food was just average.

    Steak was overcooked (well done on the edges, but medium well in the middle). I ordered medium. Amazing Italian dressing on the salad. Shrimp and lobster were tasty. Great service, but the room we were in was way too loud.

    Upon arriving for 5pm reservation on Easter Sunday, we arrived 10 mins early. All tables in restaurant were completely vacant. They said they do not start seating until 5pm. Told us to go sit on couch and wait until seating started at 5pm. Yet there were 3 hostesses standing, doing absolutely nothing at front entrance the whole time. Also several other waitstaff all milling around restaurant doing nothing. We were not even given opportunity to place a drink order until they got around to even seating us at 5:10pm. We felt like children having been placed in a time out. Not a good way to start off our visit to JB Hooks. During our dinner a waitress (not ours) came to our table 4 times attempting to take salads and soups away that we had clearly not finished. Same with the rolls and flatbread. It was obvious to us they were in a big rush to flip our table. Highly annoying. The food was good but the overall experience was mediocre at best. We will not be dining here again!

    We had an awesome Valentine's Day dinner at JB Hooks. My husband had his favorite Mahi Woodrow and wedge salad. As usual, he raved about his salad and meal. I tried the special which was sea bass. It was wonderful! We were greeted with a complimentary rose and ended the splendid meal with complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Just the best!
