Went to JB Hooks for dinner, was sent to the bar for happy hour. Way too loud and rude people. Asked to go to dining room. Jessie was our waitress and she made a not so good trip into a real nice quiet dinner for 2 friends. She was talkative but not always there, made sure we were taken care... More

This is the second year we have booked our employee Christmas party at JB Hooks. Jessi and Rich did an amazing job explaining menu items and specials. They were attentive to our needs and they took great care not to overbook the seating area so we did not have to rush. We were able to enjoy a delicious meal and... More

Going to JB Hooks is always a treat! Sunday afternoons, looking out at the spectacular view, and enjoying a wonderful meal is a great way to spend the day. Maxwell has been our server, and he does an outstanding job.

Assistant Managers Gina, with which the party and menu were arranged, and Stella, who was there supervising the event did an excellent job. As did our servers Johnny, Tanya and Vanessa, who Stella kept on after cocktail hour... More

Great food. Enjoyed the salmon bisque, steak and lobster tail. Crab cakes were the best. Great view of the bridge. Great service. Thanks to Jake! Oh, I almost forgot, the creme brulee was a nice finish.

JB Hooks is known for being a fine dining experience at the Lake of the Ozarks.
