Overall it was a good experience. Nice and friendly staff. The ambience was wonderful. We were a little disappointed and Entre, we had the orange roughy and prime rib. Neither of them had a great flavor just OK. The soup and salad was awesome as was the dessert.

Anthony was our server and was both attentive & polite. I had the Orange Roughy and my husband had the Grouper. Both were cooked perfectly with just the right seasoning without overpowering the fish. Ceasar salads were appropriate size and the stuffed mushroom appetizers were delicious! Additionally, the roasted tomato cream cheese served with crisps was a perfect appetizer to nosh on while waiting for your dinner. This is definitely a go-to restaurant in the Ozarks with a gorgeous view of the lake!

We had a table by the window and watched the beautiful sunset! Our food (sea bass special of the day and a filet of beef) was very good. The Gregory salad and sausage gumbo were also very tasty. We topped off our dinner with an ice cream cocktail…yummy!!

Birthday celebration Food was good. But I have never paid $149 for crab legs in all my years- wow. Everyone else enjoyed their meal just once my bill came - Market price for crab legs. Unbelievable

We were seated by a window which was a beautiful spot to watch the sunset.
New Orleans bbq shrimp appetizer was excellent. Filet was tender & cooked medium as ordered. Pork medallions were tasty, but slices were too thick & were swimming in a peach/blueberry sauce. About half that amount would have been more than enough.
Noise level was very high. Difficult to have a conversation without feeling as if you were yelling. Two large tables of boisterous men added to the noise level.
We have dined here before & loved it, but doubt we’ll go back.

Nice place but can be extremely noisy. Food is good but depending on crowds can be served less than proper temps.

A trip to the Lake of the Ozarks is annual outing with another couple. We always eat lunch inbound and a special dinner the night before we leave at Hooks. JB Hooks is a gem and has become an integral part of our Lake experience. The menu is diverse featuring some top flight innovative dishes.

A special shout out for Marty, our waitress on Thursday night, September 16. Her attentiveness to our wants and needs was exemplary. She made our dining experience "extra special."

Great place for a romantic or casual meal. We chose to dress up a bit. Nothing fancy. Just not flip flops and t-shirt. View was awesome, food was very good and our waitress was top notch as was the support staff. A little pricey. But you get what you pay for.

We sat outside on a perfect evening with a gorgeous view overlooking the lake at sunset. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive without hovering. The seared tuna appetizer was delicious, seved with soy sauce, fiery wasabi and a very sweet and slightly hot sauce. Salads were fresh and delicious. My husband's steak was cooked properly but the butter sauce was mediocre. I asked the chef to prepare the salmon with a different sauce from the one offered on the menu, but instead he/she just cooked the fish with little seasoning and sent the sauce I requested on the side several minutes later. So the fish wasn't very flavorful. Would not recommend deviating from the menu as written. We tried a glass of the Mondavi cab and a Caymus red blend, both of which brought to mind three-buck-Chuck, making us wonder if both came from the same box in the kitchen. Would recommend ordering one of their special bottles of red wine, which are quite expensive, or bring your own wine and pay their $22 corkage fee. There were high points and low points, but overall it was a good experience, except for the wines by the glass and the salmon preparation.

Wife and I came in for a dinner out with no kids and had a perfect dinner date. Sea bass was delicious and our waiter Jake was great. Took great care of us. Was professional, knowledgeable, and added a bit of humor which was exactly what we needed . Definitely look forward to returning as we love this place when we’re able to get to the lake.
