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.

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!

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 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.

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!

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!
