Great ambiance, view and service but as far as the food, it was way over priced for the quality and quantity we received. We ordered a steak with king crab as well as the neptune steak with scallops and shrimp. Along with salmon bisque. Our food was barely warm and the Neptune portions were slim (3 asparagus stocks and a 1/4 cup if that of scallops and shrimp chopped up. The king crab came out about 10 minutes later than the steak (which we did get a comped glass of wine), but wasn’t able to eat them together.
For two people with tip our tab was over $200 and we both left with a sour taste in our mouth. The #1 trip advisor rating is overrated. Go somewhere else with a good view for a lot less money and be more satisfied leaving.

We started in the lounge and the entertainer was fabulous! Your jalapeño and bacon app was the BEST I’ve had. Then our prime rib and salads were good. The garlic mash potatoes were having a bad night. However the bartender, servers, and owner were very sweet.

We have been to JB Hooks several times and it never disappoints. Our food was cooked perfectly and our wait staff were on top of their game. Even though our waitress, Kelly, was very busy with all her tables full of patrons, Kelly was attentive to our needs and extremely polite and informative. We look for and to visiting again soon.

The food is good, but not great. There was a band playing in the bar and it was SO LOUD at the table we were seated at. Service is okay, not great at re filling drinks. We would go back but with different(less) expectations.

The waiter was just alright. He forgot my wife’s coat for example and didn’t clear the table after the next course or before bringing the bill

The best tasting steak I’ve had. The service was impeccable.

Our server Kelley was knowledgeable, friendly, and had the perfect amount of interaction. She went above and beyond and volunteered herself to take a picture of my wife and I outside with the beautiful view & sunset as we were celebrating our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary.

There isn’t a bad seat in the building, but we’re exceptionally satisfied that we had a table on the outer perimeter and got to take in the views and sunset.

This is an upscale restaurant, so expect a hefty (but worth it) bill and dress accordingly. Most people were business casual to black tie, but I did see some jeans and collared shirts. If you stick somewhere in this range, you won’t stick out.

It was the perfect dinner, service, and ambiance for our anniversary celebration.


Thank you Kelley for your great service!!

We had a wonderful time celebrating a birthday. The Sea Bass special was excellent as well as the NY strip steak. Our waiter Jake provided us with excellent service. Add the outstanding view of a beautiful sunset and we had the perfect evening.

Out server was great. Very friendly & attentive. Unfortunately, our food was quite bland. Everything seemed to be of very good quality but very under seasoned. Every course we had was just flat in flavor. Prices were a bit on the high side for what you get and might have more acceptable had the food been outstanding or even really good.

JB Hooks is our favorite restaurant on the lake. We dine there at least twice each time, when we come out on vacation from Colorado. The seafood is great as is their blackened prime rib. We have never had a bad meal or service there. Our waiter Rick Huntsman was very knowledgeable and attentive.

Had been to JB Hooks several times over the years and thought it was ok. But now, it's different. First, a whole new look since I'd been there, and it is spacious and inviting and with the windows it's a beautiful experience. Just loved it! The food was incredible. I enjoyed lobster pasta and it was nothing like I'd had of similar name. It was delicious. Absolutely delicious. Lots and lots of lobster swimming in a wonderfully creamy sauce with crimini mushrooms, penne pasta and asparagus. Not much more to say except I wish I was enjoying again right now! Companion enjoyed a steak with fixings and also said it was delicious. Perfectly cooked, perfectly enjoyed. We started the experience with drinks and Hook's famous crunchy fingers (you hafta try 'em) and ended it with a incredible sunset display. The physical redo moves the happy hour to a completely separate section so they can do their things while diners enjoy their thing, separately. What a nice change. Oh and the owner came by each table to thank them for coming. Nice touch. Incredible experience.

Jake was a great server and helped make our evening very enjoyable. Pleasant and funny to the appropriate degree, and very patient with us. Food generally very good. Things like a great French onion soup, the crunchy fingers fish appetizer, the flatbread with tomato basil cream cheese, and the brownie a la mode put things over the top. The biggest disappointment was the garlic mashed potatoes: flavorless and very blah.
