The food was amazing! Jake, our server, was equally amazing. Celebrating my dad's 60th birthday there was extremely memorable!!! Thanks, JB Hooks!
There is a reason they are rated number 1 in the area. The food is absolutely fantastic. The only problem is choosing which meal to order. The filet mignon and seafood were perfect. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. Our server, Jake is one of the best. He made sure we had the perfect dining experience. Highly recommended.
We went there for a few birthday celebrations. Our server (and all who helped our table) were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable of the menu/what to recommend. We had our 1-year-old daughter with us; sometimes servers get annoyed with a table that has a baby but they made the experience incredibly stress-free and welcoming. We will definitely be back!
This place was recommended to us by a local winery for "fine dining" in the Ozarks. We were impressed by the portion sizes and price of food. We loved our meals and the selection they had. We were also very impressed with the view and the ambiance of the place. It was quiet with a gorgeous view of the lake! We will definately go back when we visit the Lake of the Ozarks again.
Best dining experience in Lake of the Ozark! We are vacationing with our family and everyone had a wonderful time. We had fish, filet and pasta and everything was cooked to perfection. Would highly recommend this Restraunt. Bar area looked great too. The views from the main dining are priceless. We have dined in some amazing places and our big take away is service. Rick was on point!So pleasant but not overwhelming. He didn’t miss a beat. Job well done! My father-in-law is still raving about him.
I have a difficult choice to make whenever I eat at Hook's. I love the prime rib. And now I've discovered osso bucco. Oh. My. Word. And then I am seated and I look at the menu, and I'm so tempted to try other offerings. We usually have Rick as a server and we greatly appreciate his professional patience and answers to our questions. We never feel rushed and continue to look forward to our visits there.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at JB Hooks...the food was good, but we were shocked at the price for a pound of crab legs....
JB Hook continues to be a great place for dinner. Great food, attentive service and great sunset views.
Amazing experience! The entire staff was wonderful and very friendly. The food was outstanding as well. Great table service by Nancy who took great care of us during dinner. Thank you JB Hooks for a beautiful evening!
The service was great! Salads could be a meal on their own. Food was incredible!
We had Johnny Grist as a waiter and he was the best! Will definitely ask for him the next time we come back. He had phenomenal recommendations and time the apps, salads, and entrees to come out either perfect timing!
Enjoyed our dinner very much at JB Hooks. Atmosphere, food, service was all awesome!
Exceptional service and inventive menu. Rick was our waiter who is extremely knowledgeable about the menu made ideal suggestions with professionalism and a great sense of humor. Our food was full of flavor and combinations of ingredients created a memorable meal. Our dinning experience was enhanced by the beautiful views of the lake at sunset.
The catch of the day was one of my favorites and so was irresistible: Dover sole. As always, we had requested Rick to be our server; his description of the sole was so mouth-watering that I didn't even let him finish telling us about the rest of the featured menu items. Exquisite! (Both the sole and Rick! He hasn't missed yet with a menu suggestion.)
Great food as usual! Love Hooks and Jake's service was outstanding! Everyone is very attentive. Great view from the dining room. We normally go for a casual lunch, very different feel - in a good way - at dinner.
Our timing was perfect: we got to watch an awesome sunset while enjoying a lovely dinner. The stuffed mushrooms are fabulous; you can't eat just one! The dining experience was made special by our favorite server, Rick. Rick was ably assisted this evening by the quiet efficiency of Lis and Colby, who kept our glasses filled and our table cleared.
I tried something new for me on the menu a couple of days ago. I keep ordering the same thing each time I'm there because I really, really like it. This time I decided to try the stuffed mushrooms. I'm drooling just thinking about them. Guess I'll have to go in a couple of times a week from now on so I can have my 'regular' and still have the mushrooms on a regular schedule. The service was excellent, as always, which is why we always ask for Rick.
Our waiter Johnny was amazing as always we enjoy going to JB Hooks for the beautiful views and wonderfully delicious food and drinks
The sunsets are breathtaking
Nice dinner as usual. Waiter was fun and overall was a very nice evening.
Jake was our server that night. He was outstanding the whole night, very polite and helpful. Thanks for a great evening.
Service was lacking & food overpriced. View was nice but dark so couldn’t see.
We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary there and really enjoyed everything. The view of the lake from our table to the service and the food was amazing. We will be back again for sure.
We usually go to dinner on Sunday evenings. Because of the holiday we chose to visit Monday evening. I'm always amazed at the service we're given. Our server Rick was at the table replacing and/or adding items before we even realized we needed them. We'll be going in more often I'm sure. The evening specials menu offered each day is too tempting to pass up. Thank you for another evening of dining pleasure.
We celebrated our anniversary at JB Hooks Sunday February 18, 2018. The atmosphere was casual with one of the best views of the Lake of the Ozarks via the panoramic windows. We got to see a terrific sunset of which the restaurant boasts! The food was perfectly prepared and served in stages the way it should be . Beverages, appetizers, salads, and entrees were exquisitely done. Our filet mignons were absolutely melt-in-the mouth and flavorful!! Our server, Taylor, was at her very best. We had had her in a previous visit so it made this one special. Her friendliness, knowledge and constant attention to our needs were superior. Should you decide to visit JB Hooks, we recommend you ask for her! This restaurant is an absolute must for anyone visiting the Lake area.
My husband and I received a gift card for JB Hooks for Christmas 2 years ago and finally made the trip down for dinner. We came in from Jefferson City, MO which is not that far but with busy schedules we found it hard to get down there. We had been to this restaurant before and always enjoy it. Nancy our waitress was very helpful and pleasant. She always had a smile on her face and made us feel like we were her only customers. The wait staff were very attentive and we could not have asked for better service. It was a beautiful evening and our table by the window overlooking the Lake gave us a spectacular view of the sunset. We will be back.
Belated Valentines Day dinner. Jake,our server was outstanding and food was exceptional. Very good! Our new favorite at the lake.
I booked J B Hooks on Own Table and put it as a "date". They had us wait a few minutes because they wanted to get us a window table. I thought that was great because the view at Hooks is awesome. As always the food and service was really good. The owner of the restaurant came to our table a couple of times to make sure that our experience was satisfactory. It was a very nice evening!
Great meal and excellent service. Our waiter, Johnny Grist, was top-notch. One of our favorite places to relax and have a good dining experience!
I thought the night was an overall great experience. The dinner was pretty pricey but the meal was great. We won’t spend that for dinner normally but it was a special occasion.
Great experience !! valentine’ s day ,date and first time at restaurant, pre dinner wine in the lounge was fun , the waiter in the very nice, for dinner we were seated in a quite , cozy little corner with an evening lake veiw, the waitress was very friendly and helpful with the menu, the steak and shrimp combo was excellent, thank you !!! We will be back .
I liked the environment but did not care for the price of the food. The portion size was very small compared to the large price.
Great place for a special dinning experience. Food was outstanding as was the service. Definitely recommend this place. We'll be back soon.
The extra touches for Valentines were unexpected and so thoughtful. A long stem rose, champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries just added so much to the celebration. And then there is always their signature chocolate martini. Yum Yum!
Never disappoints. Best Osso Buco ever. Great views and great service.
In my opinion, the best restaurant on the lake. Food and service has been off the charts every time we have gone. For Valentine's Day, the rose for the ladies, complimentary champaign, and the chocolate covered strawberries were an amazing touch. I had ordered roses for my wife to be delivered and they were on our table waiting (I made mega points... lol). Our server last night was Patrick... super great guy and very professional. I didn't get the name of our bus boy, but he was exceptional also, to the degree I felt he deserved a tip. He was very gracious when I gave it to him... not with an attitude like "I deserve this". Very humble and outwardly grateful!
We had a table for three reservation at 6:00 pm, and ordered very different entrees: Tutto Mare, Chicken Gregory and Osso Bucco. All were excellent. Personally, I had the Osso Bucco, and it was as good as any that I have had in the US or anywhere in Europe. I did not like their take on Brussels sprouts, though. Theirs are blanched and in cream sauce with cheese, and I prefer fried with bacon, pork belly or pancetta.
The service, by Tabatha, was excellent.
We don’t dine out much, but when we do, and want to treat ourselves to great food, JB Hook’s is where we go.
This was our third visit to JB Hooks and we were as impressed as the first! We requested a window-seat and that is exactly what we got. Our waiter was the best yet! Rick Huntsman took excellent care of us. He requested items to try and even had a fun story about the wine I selected. The Steak Woodrow is INCREDIBLE.
We always enjoy dining at Hooks. The prime rib was wonderful, and our favorite server, Rick Huntsman, made the evening perfect. Stella, the manager, even dropped by our table to say hello; a nice touch.
Very consistent food. I just wish the dinning area was quieter.
