Conundrum wine superb
Overall GREAT experience
We had a fantastic dinner. Amazing food. The view was breathtaking , and the service was top-notch. We highly recommend this restaurant.
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!!
We were very impressed with our Server, Jake. Besides being an excellent server, he is very likable and professional.
Great birthday dinner- sea bass special was wonderful and the filet- yum! We visit every time we are at the lake.
Everything was outstanding
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
Beautiful restaurant. Marty was an excellent server and made our anniversary dinner very pleasant!
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.
It's still very loud in the main dining room. Steak was ordered med. well, came med rare. Wife's steak was the same. It was still good as I had a one pound lobster to go with it.
A little bit loud, but overall good food (had filet with shrimp), great view of the lake!
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 food , awesome atmosphere! This place never disappoints. I would highly recommend.
Awesome supper, had the steak dinner! Devin was my server, excellent as always!! Beautilake view also.
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.
Always a great experience at JB Hooks. Celebrated my 50th there with awesome food and service (Tony B).
Favorite entree of catch of the day and blackened salmon delicious, beverages created to perfection, dessert tasty! Vanessa was efficient and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend
We had fantastic steaks and coconut shrimp, the best!! Our server was Vanessa, she was amazing!
Outstanding, as usual. JB Hooks has never disappointed us. Delicious food, excellent service, and a stunning view!
Nice dinner. Thank you!!!
Our meal was outstanding and the service was excellent. Our server, Olivia, was wonderful - a real gem!
We celebrated our anniversary on the patio over looking the lake. The food was outstanding and our server, Tommy, was attentive, fun and made great recommendations. You really can’t beat the view and the food and wine are fantastic!
Excellent as always! Good and service just superb!!
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.
Great place, always good food and service, very good service.

We had a wonderful experience at J B Hooks, and Johnny was a great waiter- very helpful suggestions and very attentive.
Marty was our server. She was excellent!!
Wonderful evening out. Food was great as usual and our server was Jake and he was exceptional. We always stop in for dinner when visiting the lake.
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.
