Amazing service from Justin K. who was friendly, very knowledgeable about the menu, and politely attentive to our needs. Some of the food was equally amazing such as the French onion soup, the scallops, the water crackers with the flavored cream cheese served with the salad/soup course, amaretto carrots and the bread with the main course. Brownie with ice cream and multiple toppings for dessert was also great. Justin brought us an extra bowl and even offered to bring the toppings out on the side so each of us could add what we liked. It was certainly enough to share! Unfortunately but easy to fix, the escargot was completely covered (buried is more like it) in cheese and bread crumbs. If you order escargot, it's because you like it so a little butter and garlic is all they need. The mashed potatoes were a gummy paste - neither my husband or I had ever had such horrible mashed potatoes! The Cajun rice was overly dry and burnt - maybe it was the bottom of the pot as it was getting late in the evening. Justin did a great job of correcting the issues with our meal by bringing us other sides and taking the escargot off the bill.
This was our first time at JB Hooks and based on having two horrible sides I'm not sure we'll be back soon considering it's a pricey restaurant that's been around a long time!
Everything was great except all three of our steaks were over cooked!
Our food was delicious and our waitress was excellent!
It was Awesome i had a wonderful birthday dinner. The workers were very inviting. The food was delightful. My husband was amazing
The food is amazing. We love the window seats during the sunset. It’s definitely a favorite at the Lake..
Everything was excellent! Great vibe and beautiful view!
The food for the price was way over valued. We had Alaskan King crab and the 1 lb. Lobster. Very average at best. There are too many other places that will deliver on your culinary palate.
The view however was superb
This was a celebration dinner for my dad’s 80th birthday. The reception staff got us seated prior to our reservation time, and at a window table, as requested.
Everything was great and our waitress, Marty, was so attentive. She was awesome; dessert with a special birthday message and photos for us.
This place deserves more than 5 stars for delicious food, great scenery & atmosphere and wonderful wait staff.
Keep up the great dedication to your customers!
Kelly was our server and she was excellent. King crab legs were spot on. Hooks fish fingers and seared ahi tuna for apps and you will never go wrong.
I was very impressed with the staff, especially waitress Kelly.
Kelly explained the menu and made great recommendations and suggestions.
Thanks to her, I was able to enjoy my great meal. I would come again
Server was great in suggestions. Did not try to up sell a dinner suggested something a little less and it was really good. Table was ready early
I wish there were some choices without quite so much over-the-top presentations. For example, the chef is spectacular at preparing the scallops, but the over-the-top sauce prevents one from even tasting the scallops. Could same be offered with a lighter white wine reduction that allowed beautiful job done searing the scallops to come thru a bit more? After an over-the-top appetizer (escargot) and a fantastic salad, the pallet didn't need anymore overwhelming. Same with the Tute Mare. Really, really good, but sometimes less is more.
We will be back, but willl be asking to modify somewhat.
Fun meal. Great server.
We had a wonderful dining experience as we always do at Jb hooks. Our waiter Jake took great care of and never missed a beat. The swordfish was delicious as was the cream brûlée for dessert.
Great food and service.
Food, drinks and service were great as usual! Love the atmosphere! Hooks is always our "Go-To" place to eat!
Fantastic dinner and even better service from Jake. We love coming here anytime we’re at lake of the Ozarks .
Highly recommend this place to all.
Zach was an amazing waiter and made our birthday dinner a complete success! Thank you so much for the delicious food and the perfect gift for my sweetheart and me!
The atmosphere, food and service was fantastic. The whole experience from start to finish was more than we could have hoped for. It server Tony was friendly, funny and knowledgeable and will request him every time we come.
The food here is REALLY good! Although I think I might have asked for the wrong temp in my steak to get more flavor, it was still AMAZING! Greg was our server and had great recommendations and was not lying on the size of the lobster being as BIG AS HIS FOREARM!!
If you like steaks and seafood, are in the Osage Beach area, and have the money to spend, go here!
Food was delicious. Was pretty loud in there for a nice restaurant, and we had to talk quite loudly amongst ourselves. Our waitress was amazing, and overall, we’d be back. On the pricier side, but worth it.
OUTSTANDING. Very quick, efficient service. Our waiter, Tony, was excellent - he was very friendly, answered all of our questions about the menu and kept our drinks filled! The KC strip was perfectly cooked and beautifully seasoned, and the prime rib was the best I've ever had. Will definitely be back!
Johnny G made sure our experience was an all around great experience. Great meal!
Delicious food. Service was wonderful and timely. Marty took great care of us!
Food was pretty good, but the desserts were memorable. Our waiter Rick Huntsman was a professional. The desserts were so good we’re going back tonight
Great as usual!
Food is great. Rick is the best server. Very detailed and friendly. Thanks Phil & Teresa.
Maxwell was out outstanding server he was amazing even tho he was very busy, his section was completely full but he was one of the best servers we have had there. The food was excellent and we love sitting by the window for the view. My steak was not cooked the way I wanted but it was so great. We always have a great meal here.
We went big with lobsters/steak/crab legs. All spectacular. A wee bit pricey but this is a first class restaurant. The service and ambience was impeccable, as expected.
We felt so rushed. Every few minutes someone would come through and try to take our plates.the meal was very bland.
We had a reservation but didn’t get our table until 20 minutes after. Our waitress was horrible she had no personality and would just walk up and hand us stuff or take our glasses or plates and not say anything. She got our appetizer wrong and our drink order. Then when the check came she didn’t have our entrees on there. So we had to wait longer while she tried to figure it out.
Such a great menu with so many options.
The food did not disappoint. The seafood is fabulous!
Cooked perfectly, nice presentation and wonderful service.
Kelly did a fantastic job taking care of us and was so attentive and sweet.
We can’t wait to visit again, as it’s our favorite date night drive to have a great meal.
Bonus that the sunset views over the lake were perfect tonight!
Marty was our waitress and did a great job! The view was amazing and service was the best. I feel that the food is a bit pricey
Calamari was best we have ever had.
Our waitress was on top of things and excellent!
Had another very enjoyable dinner at Hooks. The service was very attentive and prompt. The food was delicious - and way too much. We all had a great time and, of course, will definitely come back again.
I gave you a lower rating under the ambience category for two reasons: #1 The hostesses should dress in a manner more befitting for such a magnificent restaurant, #2 you have a dress code of " lake casual" yet you allow people in who look like they just plowed the back forty. They should be denied entry in to the dinning room.
Great food and terrific service. Maxwell our waiter was knowledgeable and offered great advice.
It was great!
Really outstanding food and service. Would recommend and definitely plan to go again!
