JB Hooks Ratings and Reviews
Our first time to eat at JB Hooks. The food was so delicious. We had the stuffed lobster tail and prime rib with Gregory salad. We decided we have been missing the best restaurant at the lake all the years we have been coming here!! Our waiter was Johnny Grist. He was so helpful in deciding what to eat and attended to our ever need!! Our whole experience was 5 star!!! Will be back!
I took a group of customers, that are big eaters. Every one of them came out very satisfied with the portion size, and quality of the food.
Half ordered meat, and half ordered sea food/ fish. My salmon was perfect, the mixed drinks received excellent ratings also. I will be back for sure.
We visit this restaurant regularly and are never disappointed. Our waiter, Jake, is the best waiter at the Lake. Jake has worked with the chef to have my scallops order custom made to perfection. The service by the entire staff is excellent. Your water glass will never be empty. The owner, Bruce, stops by the table to ask how your dinner and service has been. We strongly recommend that you visit JB Hooks the next time you are at the Lake!
My favorite thing to make for dinner: Reservations at Hooks!
What an enchanted evening! The meal was well prepared by the chefs and perfectly presented by Rick H, who answered all our questions knowledgeably and completely. Rick was ably assisted this evening by Mr Bishop. As an extra bonus, we were seated at the perfect time to watch a spectacular sunset. We'll do this again, and soon.
Our table of 5 had four different entrees and everyone agreed that they enjoyed their meals and rated them as excellent. J B Hooks is now on our list as one of the 3 best restaurants at the lake. Also, the Happy Hour is the best at the lake, bar none. The only improvement would be a smoke-free bar area.
Our steaks were to be medium well, the came in medium rare. The waitress only came back to the table one time and that was 3 fourths the way through the meal. Our meal has been usually pretty good but the last couple of times you have kind of failed us. We're not sure we're gonna come back.
We booked for our company Christmas Dinner/Party. We found that this place met all our needs for space and the food was phenomenal! The service was excellent with our server Rick being funny and entertaining. The atmosphere was perfect and everyone that attending was very pleased to the point that we've decided to come back next year!
For this very special birthday celebration, we chose JB Hooks, our favorite restaurant, and asked for Rick Huntsman, our favorite server. The prime rib was superb! At the end of the meal, Rick presented our birthday celebrant with an exquisite creme brulee, served atop a platter with birthday greetings written in delicious raspberry sauce, topped off with a birthday candle. The evening was a resounding success, thanks to the chef and staff in the background and Rick and his charmingly efficient buser, Taylor, orchestrating the presentation and flow of food and drink at the table. Highly recommend for any meal, but most especially a special celebration. Be sure to ask for Rick; he pulls everything together seamlessly.
My fiance and I enjoyed our 2 year anniversary here. The price is higher end, but the quality speaks for itself. Our server was quick to help and knowledgeable about the food. He helped us make a delicious decision! The taste of everything was divine. Our plates were quickly changed from dirty to clean, and our glasses were always full. Also, I liked that our server asked if we wanted to wait to have our dinner order put in, as to not rush through our salad course. Overall an amazing experience.
My wife's birthday dinner. Most amazing dining experience. Provided us with a great view of the lake. many thanks to our server- Mr. Rick Huntsman who guided us with our wine and dinner selections. Would recommend the KC Strip steak and any seafood special. Thanks to the chef and staff for a memorable evening.
First time at this restaurant. Very noisy and my friend and I are both a little hard hearing so had a little trouble understanding the young waitress. Salmon bisque was rather blah and the Fettucine Alfredo was overloaded with garlic. I ordered Chicken Oscar, my first time, it was good, but, it tasted like chicken, rice, béarnaise sauce, and asparagus, like four separate things, rather than a very tasty meal.
One of the best things about living at the Lake year-round now rather than just visiting is that I can eat at Hooks any time I want. And one of the things I enjoy most about eating at Hooks is the exceptional service provided by our favorite (and award-winning!) server, Rick Huntsman. I know I can trust Rick's recommendations, which have always been spot-on. My friend had the Chicken Gregory and pronounced it to be exquisite. I selected the Pesto Snapper, which was interesting. Watching the spectacular sunset while eating dinner will have to wait a few months, but we enjoyed the after-dark vista of sparkling lights reflected on the Lake. It was calm and peaceful and suited our mood perfectly.
