    The service just took way too long. We felt like they were deliberately slow so we would order more drinks.

    Enjoyed a lovely dinner with my daughter. We had a great view of the lake, our server was great & the meal was exceptional. We ate early 5:30 but was definitely busier & a bit noisier when we left.

    Couldn’t get our steaks cooked as they were ordered and no flavor to the steak. If I have to put table salt on my steak it doesn’t have any flavor. Was really looking forward to it but was not impressed.

    Our 13th anniversary. We’ve eaten at JB Hooks before but this was the first time in the newer addition at a table overlooking the lake. We were seated in time to enjoy a beautiful sunset over the lake. Our server Kelly was super! She asked several questions including if this was a special occasion. After finishing our delicious meal Kelly brought a strawberry cheesecake with “Happy 13th Anniversary” drizzle around the plate. Super service, delicious meal, and super experience. Thank you.

    Disappointing overall. Had reservations for over a month. Still had to wait 30 minutes for table and was seated in a corner with large plastic tree crowded into space. Kitchen was out of several items. Also next to large party / table with very drunk / loud group. Staff was aware they were annoying to other customers however kept serving them. Plenty of other bar type restaurants in the area that we could have gone to if we had wanted that type of experience however not what we had in mind for this night / nicer restaurant.

    Tough night. The place was packed and they had 30 top in our area as we were seated. Steak was not cooked and we had it packed to-go so we could head hike to cook it. Shrimp was frozen. It was not a good night at JBH but the server was trying to stay agreed and we did feel so bad for him for being so overwhelmed.

    Service was fine, but food was not good. We ordered an appetizer of escargots and mils of voodoo scallops and prime rib. We ordered an appetizer of escargots, voodoo scallops and prime rib. We waited quite some time for our escargot, which was not at all good. Not sure why it took so long to get and then not be at all tasty. Then when we got our food, the prime rib was cold, and the scallops were awful. I don’t know if it was the Scallops or the sauce that was on them, but just not good at all. We were given a free glass of wine and some cheesecake to go. But it’s really hard to spend $150 on dinner when it just wasn’t something that was good. They were so disappointed for Christmas Eve dinner.
