Anthony was amazing. He took care of everything before we could ask. He is a total professional. Everyone should request his service. Thank you for you taking care of us.
Prime rib and fish were great, creme brulee topped it off
Amazing atmosphere, service, food and best view of the lake!
4 patrons pork was dry, chicken dry, steaks for other two was good, rolls inedible hard as rock. Shrimp appetizer with fresh horseradish was excellent, service was good but very impersonal
Devon, our waiter, was very professional and helpful. He was knowledgeable on the meals and made some great recommendations. I would have preferred a nice "wet" (sweet) red wine, but the Red Blend was a good comprimise.
Our service was wonderful. Our server was very attentive. Food was excellent as always!
2 of us ordered a ribeye and they did not have a good flavor for the $50 cost.
They also got my brother in laws steak cooked wrong twice. We are not picky people, but this experience was bad. I typically come and sit on the bar side, but wanted to try something different.
Excellent service and food
We had our first date at JB Hooks, we got engaged on a boat underneath JB Hooks on the water, and we return each year to celebrate our Anniversary. 14 years and counting.
Great food. Julie made our experience sweet. Thank you.
We had a wonderful dinner starting off the holidays. Thanks for being here at the lake.
As always, service snd food were excellent. View is always pretty.
Great food and service! Johnny was the best server! Highly recommend if you’re visiting LOTO!
Johnny was our server he gave us time to talk and enjoy our drinks . Explained things on the menu and totally served us with the best dining experience we could asked for ! Everything was top notch !
•••••The owner came around and asked how our dinner was if it was cooked to our expectation and we thought that was really nice …. Thank you !
Our server was Greg! He was so nice and very good even though he was very busy, he took his time and made sure we were taken care of! He did not make us feel like he was in a rush! 10/10 would recommend him!
Love the atmosphere at JB Hooks. The food is outstanding, I prefer the steaks. My server was Devin, he is my favorite. And wether it's light outside or not, it's a beautiful lake view.
The service was wonderful. I asked for a medium rare steak, but it was very rare. However, they did make up for it by giving us a free dessert, which was amazing! Great experience!!
The steaks were excellent, the service by Olivia was excellent, and the entire experience was wonderful. This was our second visit (we live about two hours away), and it is already a place we will come to again and again.
Johnny was an amazing waiter! He made my birthday dinner special! We loved the whole evening
Square ceiling light fixtures need internal cleaning to eliminate bugs.
Great atmosphere, terrific food & awesome service. Thank you, Marty we enjoyed our first experience at JB Hooks. We will be back.
Food was fantastic. Service was fantastic. Everyone was friendly and kind. Fast service, beautiful atmosphere. Will definitely be coming back!
We loved the dip with the crackers but everything else just wasn’t up to our standards. We ordered steaks and calamari. Both were bland. Cooked to our request and on point but just overall taste wasn’t great. Cajun Calamari seemed slightly over cooked with zero seasoning and flavor. The restaurant was beautiful and the waitress and staff were amazing!
Wonderful evening! Perfect steak, beautiful view and outstanding service from Devin!
Everything was delicious! Our server, Kelly, was very attentive and helpful. Definitely would return!
A fine meal of crab legs, steak and Sea Bass. The only downside was it came to just shy of $300 for the two of us with 3 cocktails.
However, absolutely delicious.
We have been fortunate to have Jackie take care of group of 6 the last 2 times. I will always ask for her if possible. She does a outstanding job.
We have happy hour on the bar before dinner in the dining room. Our waitress was great, so friendly, accommodating and great service.
Dinner was a little disappointing. I was looking forward to the prime rib. Rather than telling us is when we sat down, the waitress waited until everyone made their selection then we had to start over to choose or meals.
At the end we were satisfied with our food, just not what we expected at J B Hooks.
We will be back, the restaurant has everything in fine dining.
J.B Hooks was amazing! 10-10 highly recommend! If you are down at the lake, you should definitely stop in and grab some food and wine.
55th. Wedding Anniversary. No complaints about restaurant.
To start off, the ambiance of this restaurant is the best at the Lake of the Ozarks. The waiter was excellent because he didn’t rush us and gave us plenty of time to eat our salads before our entrees were served. Both of our fish dinners were perfectly prepared as well as our salads and vegetables. We also enjoyed our bottle of wine selected from the fine wine list. The only complaint my wife and I have is that no one must of read my special requests, that I included, when I made my Open Table reservation, which was that we were celebrating our 61st wedding anniversary. No one even acknowledged our special celebration. Also, we requested our favorite waiter, “Anton” to serve us on Saturday night. The hostess didn’t know anything about that request. Finally, that minor complaint didn’t take away from enjoying our "special night"at an outstanding restaurant. Whenever you visit the Lake of the Ozarks be sure to include a dinner at this fine establishment.
P.S. They also have a great “Happy Hour" everyday.
Johnny G. was an excellent waiter. He was patient with us as we wanted a little more time to drink a cocktail prior to ordering. We just wanted to relax and move slow and Johnny G. was great!! Love coming here!
Kelly was our server - excellent! She has been our server on previous visits to the restaurant.
Our server Kelly was outstanding!!!!
What a wonderful dinner!! We thoroughly enjoyed every single bit of our dinner. The witness was so knowledgeable and could answer all of our questions regarding choices. I went with the Ahi Tuna and it was one of the best things I have ever eaten! I can't wait to dine here again!!
always great food, great atmosphere, and great service. Our server Olivia really took great care of us. Our drinks were kept full, and we were often asked if everything was great. From start to finish everything was perfect.
The food was excellent, I would highly recommend JB Hooks. Johnny G. provided us with great service!
Dinner was great. Rick did a great job as our server.
Everything was great. Kelly did a wonderful job. Would definitely come back
I went to JB Hooks for the first time last night and it was amazing. The food was delicious and our waitress Jackie was the best. She was very knowledgeable on the dinner and drink menu and had such a great upbeat personality that made our experience very enjoyable.
We will be back the next time we are down at the lake. I give this place a 10/10. If you have the chance to go in there, request Jackie!
Greg was our waiter and was GREAT!!!! Food and service always excellent here.
