Zach was our server and he was outstanding. Ne was very friendly and completely knowledgeable of the food and specials.
John was extremely informative and helpful helping us make a choice in drinks and dinner. He was very attentive making sure we had everything we needed all throughout the meal. Very nice atmosphere .
Your Main Hostess Rebecca deserves extra accolades for her attention to reservations & seating availability. She was very kind to make sure all those there for Happy Hour as well as dinner reservations had a drink while waiting if desired. She kept her composure when patrons were rude or short with her due to the shortage of tables in the bar area.

Firstly we love this place. Anytime we visit the lake we make a point to eat here because it is hands down the best food and service at the lake. A bit pricey but you get why you pay for. Our waiter Jake was professional and made great recommendations .

JB Hooks is the best fine dining restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. We always eat here when we visit the LOTO. The service is great and the food is first rate. The view from the new dining room is awesome.
My wife and I have been going to JB Hooks for almost 14 years on our wedding anniversary, it never fails to meet our expectations in terms of food and experience. We went to Hooks first on our wedding night over a decade and a half ago and have continued to return ever since. We are always treated very well, the lake view is great and the ambiance is wonderful. The food is top-notch, I always get the Prime Rib, I am never able to finish it all. I was raised in an Army family all over the world, grew up at the foot of the German Alps, and spent four years in the Army myself as a Paratrooper, I have been to a lot of places, and eaten a lot of different types of food. I love living at the Lake and JB Hooks is the perfect fit for the Lake area. If I really want to treat myself and my family, it's always JB Hooks.
Excellent service, delicious meal!!
Best food I have ever had. Will definitely return!
Awesome food! This is our favorite restaurant at the lake
Absolutely great experience we celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary, my wife said it was the best steak she has ever had. View was awesome and Rick our server was spot on great job. We will definitely be back
The food is always good. It’s the best restaurant at the lake.
You would think this place would not of been a selection for me due to me not being a steak person, but I wanted to try it out and order what they are known for. There really are no words for the absolute perfection of the steak and well frankly everything else that I consumed while dining. From the Mayfair salad to the filet and baked potato to the crime brûlée ALL FOOD WAS PHENOMENAL. Service was phenomenal as well. My server went above and beyond to help me find a steak I would like and made sure it was cooked well and even suggested that I have it butterflied. Everyone offered to take our dishes and fill our water. You felt taken care of and not a bother.
1st time you the Lake and to JB Hooks. Johnny Grist was our server and he was excellent. He offered great recommendations and he didn't disappoint!
We really enjoyed our dinners. We have never had a bad experience when eating here. Food is consistent and service is above average. Tonight we had Jake he was exceptional. We look forward to our return.
Great dinner as usual with family tonight. Jake our waiter went above & beyond, great service and very personable. 3 out of 4 got the 1881 filets, they melted in our mouths. Love JB Hooks every time we go, doesn’t matter if its the bar side for happy hour or the dining room, we always leave happy!!
Great dining experience. Food was spectacular and our service from Jake was great.
Although our server, Kelly, was tired at the end of a long day and previously busy weekend she was very helpful and enthusiastic to assist our table of 5, including 3 chittering teenage girls. This is our go to
place and we are never disappointed.
Great staff - professional and very friendly! Strongly recommend to all who appreciate fine dining.
It was our 30th anniversary so we went to a nice dinner. The wine was great, the mushrooms were incredible, our steak and lobster were overdone, our waiter was a character but nonobservant because I had to ask for more wine when my glass was empty. The dessert was amazing!
Tony was our waiter and he went above and beyond to make sure our dining experience was perfect. The staff was very helpful and friendly as well !!
Food was very salty. Chicken Oscar was not good. Salads, steaks, and seafood were great.
Food was great, service was fantastic!
Taylor was great. Food was fantastic. Was told wrong price on the special and it was a little pricier than expected. Was for our anniversary so didn’t worry about it too much because the food was all great !
