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.

Wife and I went for our anniversary. Drinks were very good. Not to much alcohol, mixed just right. Jake was our waiter, would definitely recommend him. Very informative and knowledgeable about the menu. Made our visit very personable.

Our waitress was very good at explaining all the different options of seafood available to us! My husband had the sea bass and I had the Grouper and they were both excellent! Would definately go there again if we are in the area!

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.

Our waitress was disappointing. She kept leaving us hanging as she said, “I have to leave and wait on other tables.” And, when my wife asked for her advice on two or three different menu choices her response was, “well, I can’t tell you what to eat.” Very below average service.

Appetizer was amazing ( crunchy fingers). Salad was soggy and the soup was Luke warm. The entrees were average. Garlic potatoes were cold, seemed to have been pre-made well before the dish was served.
