    Taylor was a great waitress. She made wonderful recommendations and served the food quickly with a sunshine attitude. We plan to always ask for her in the future.

    New Chef does not know how to cook steak! I ask for medium well & got burnt, as did my husband. Came back on the 1st of May & it was much worse. I had the steak again & my husband had the crunch fingers that were so hard you had to use a sharp knife to cut them. Get the old chef back!! Not going back!

    My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at JB Hooks very much. We started with a peanut butter manhattan and a blueberry martini...both drinks we excellent. The wedge salad was very fresh and crisp. The salmon bisque was creamy and not fishy as sometimes salmon can be. We selected alaskan king crab legs and lobster for our entrees. The crab legs were a nice size and were already split for easy eating without a struggle to get the meat from the shell. The server removed the lobster tail from the shell for us. Both entrees were cooked perfectly. We both selected the glazed carrots for sides. The carrots were tender and the glaze was delicious with a butter/brown sugar flavor. We highly recommend this restaurant! The dining room has beautiful views of the lake and the hostess and servers were very friendly and extra helpful.

    As always the food was excellent and service from Rick and team was 5 star. We had a group of 6. And while it was a busy weekend the pace of service was perfect. Was always enjoy our dining experiences at JB’s. It is truly an icon at the Lake.

    Steak was overcooked (well done on the edges, but medium well in the middle). I ordered medium. Amazing Italian dressing on the salad. Shrimp and lobster were tasty. Great service, but the room we were in was way too loud.

    Upon arriving for 5pm reservation on Easter Sunday, we arrived 10 mins early. All tables in restaurant were completely vacant. They said they do not start seating until 5pm. Told us to go sit on couch and wait until seating started at 5pm. Yet there were 3 hostesses standing, doing absolutely nothing at front entrance the whole time. Also several other waitstaff all milling around restaurant doing nothing. We were not even given opportunity to place a drink order until they got around to even seating us at 5:10pm. We felt like children having been placed in a time out. Not a good way to start off our visit to JB Hooks. During our dinner a waitress (not ours) came to our table 4 times attempting to take salads and soups away that we had clearly not finished. Same with the rolls and flatbread. It was obvious to us they were in a big rush to flip our table. Highly annoying. The food was good but the overall experience was mediocre at best. We will not be dining here again!
