Finally tried this restaurant after driving by so many times, incredible everything from service to the food incredible, the salad with homemade croutons and dressing, bread and dipping sauce, then came the prime rib and baked potato and roasted carrots oh it didn’t end there, the best bread pudding I have ever had in my life, my compliments to the chef!

This place is considered upscale for Lake of the Ozarks, but it is not fancy or pretentious. A broad, appealing menu with much better choices than the ubiquitous burger-and-wings places nearby should appeal to couples and families. Our filet mignon entrees included a good salad served family style along with freshly baked bread. The steaks were properly cooked to temperature and the meat itself was tender and trimmed of fat and membranes. Our excellent server was attentive without being overbearing. Overall, a great meal at a fair price.

JJ's is one of our "go to" favorites. My meal was really good, from the lemon drop martini to the filet; however, my husband's prime rib wasn't quite so good. The service was very good too, but they were cleaning off the table before we were quite done.

Special touches are what bring us back again and again. Our guests ALWAYS talk about what a great meal we had and ALWAYS want to return on their next visit. Portions are relatively large; everything is fresh. Service is always friendly.

My wife and I went there to celebrate her upcoming birthday. We were very pleasantly surprised with the menu options, the atmosphere, service and overall ambiance. I thought the recipes were creative containing some great versions of some familiar staples for the less adventurous and some more unusual and unique menu items which my wife and I love to try.

The small plates allowed us to try a variety of menu items without over loading on food. Although we didn't order any of the entrees this visit, they appeared to be high quality, well presented and reasonably priced.

We drove about 30 minutes from our lake house to JJ's. Well worth an even longer drive. If you haven't tried this place yet, I think you're missing out.

Though our reservation was for 7:30, we were not seated until 8:10, so make sure you don't count on this restaurant honoring your reservation in a timely manner. This is a consistent problem.
Once we were seated the service was good and the food was GREAT.
We will return due to the quality of the food, but will expect at least a 40 minute wait.

Loved everything except the catfish. The fish tastes "dirty" and had a bad taste. The waiter and the cook said they tastes it and it was fine but was taken off the bill. My husband has the prime rib and it was the best he has ever eaten. I will order something else when we come back.

As always the wonderful salad is served ice cold with fresh green pepper and the one ingredient no other restaurant uses anymore...fresh chopped celery! Top it off with the ground pepper served in a small dish (so you can actually determine how much you want vs other eateries it doesn't even come out) then finish with the homemade buttermilk dressing! Being that I prefer sirloin, the copper cut is the best, well seasoned, consistently served steak period! For dessert...if you don't have the bread pudding and coffee ventriculator...you just missed out on the best grand finale ever! Did I mention the batter fried lobster! A must have. Share one! Also share a bottle of Silverado cabernet... around $70 and well worth it!

Was nervous about going to a steakhouse I have never heard of but was shocked at what happened. AMAZING food. I have never had dinner at a place where everything from the salad dressing to the steak to the sides to the drinks to the dessert was PERFECT. The waitress was wonderful. I never had to ask for anything. She was right there. My son who is 5 and can't sit still very easily was eating everything up! She may have had to bring him two bowls (yes...two bowls) of ketchup but he was good and quiet and loved it! Every time I go to the lake, I will be going to eat at JJ's. My husband and I love Maggiano's. This place had the SAME bread as them. AMAZING! We love Hereford House. This place is better. GO. Why haven't you left yet? Go...now!

A very nice dinner had by our party of four. Downside, they need new steak knives and we were celebrating my cousins 40th wedding anniversary that I had shared prior to our arrival. A bit disappointed that her and her husband didn't get a desert to share for their special occasion.

We were a bit disappointed. Appetizer menu had changed/ deleted items. Server had to apologize because they were out of the "catch" special. When the salad came out, the server handed me the bowl of salad instead of arranging the table. Everything that night was peppercorn based. We both ordered the copper cut steak that was crusted in peppercorn and salt. Honestly, it was chewy. For an $80 meal...it was ok.

2hr 30 minute experience, multiple tables served before us that arrived later, sat 20 minutes before we were even acknowledged. Some food was cold when served, out of some items, wasn't told till our food arrived at table that they were out. 15 min to replace with something else. Last table to leave with an 8:00 res. Way over priced for the quality of food andservice we received

Had a reservation but ended up having to wait almost an hour for a table. Once sat was still another 10-15 minutes before drinks were served. Overall the food was good, the fried lobster tails were amazing and a huge portion but the rack of lamb was extremely disappointing. The mint sauce should have been amazing, but was rather off putting and had more of a medicinal/ mouthwash taste than fresh mint.
