JB Hooks Ratings and Reviews

The service was amazing and so was the food. The only bad thing was that i should have done more research before making reservations. We went on a Sunday at 4 for a romantic dinner but I did not realize that 4 o'clock was the bar happy hour (which was the only place you could be seated at that time). The downfall of sitting on the bar side was that it was rather loud and crowded and you could smoke in there. I specifically went to dinner at 4 to watch the sunset because i heard of how amazing it is to watch when youre eating at JB Hooks. So because I was sitting on the bar side, they were only serving drinks and appetizers ( me and my date are under 21 so it was a little disappointing). But once we asked if they were serving dinner, they explained that they had 2 kitchens and the dinner kitchen was preparing for dinner at the moment and the waiter nicely gave us some dinner menus. Now the food was amazing, I had the Chicken Gregory and it was to die for!

Was disappointed in the slow service, food was not as tasty as other visits in the past and since this dinner was for a special occasion, celebrating a 50th birthday, it was very disappointing for a milestone event.

We had a nice evening. Food was pretty good. The Pepper Steak was very tender and seasoning was good. Salmon was nice. Too much reflection to really get great evening view of the lake after dark. Staff was really nice.

Our server Kim was great. Suggested a cocktail off the menu after I described what I liked and I loved it. Food was very good. Loved the atmosphere. We didn't go to the bar but the had live music that looked fun. Perfect night. Will definitely return.

JB Hooks is a must for fine dining at the lake. The views are spectacular, the service is sensational but friendly and not stuffy. Everything is fresh and the steak and seafood is always top notch. Do yourself a favor, and give them a chance to provide a great experience.

Our server Jesse was the best he added to the evening and made it a great experience for my clients. I would always ask for her if I came back to this restaurant. She really knew the food and made good recommendations.

At first, disappointed in host organization skills and the table assigned. However, we had a very good waitress, energetic and helpful. Salmon and steak entrees were both very delicious. Sunset was extra good also. We find JB Hooks to be as dependable and consistent quality of food and service of any nice dining facility @ the Lake of the Ozarks.

We go to JB Hooks every time we're at the lake. Always great service and wonderful food. The smoked cream cheese spread with crackers is a favorite of ours! I had the Ahi tuna, and requested that they prepare it with sesame seeds like the appetizer version, and they did not hesitate to accommodate my request. It was wonderful! My husband had the Mahi Mahi and said it was delicious. JB Hooks never disappoints!

Fabulous experience as a first timer. My only criticism is that the waiter seemed very rushed at our table. More like what you would expect at an Applebee's or similiar place. For such a high end restaurant you should feel like wait staff is relaxed and can give you a bit of their time and attention.

We love JB Hooks! Their steaks are aged and cooked to perfection! We always enjoy the beautiful lake views and this time we went at sunset and it was breathtakingly beautiful!
We really like the Greek salad with the balsamic dressing it is fresh and crisp and the
cheese crumbles along with the Greek olives accompanied by crackers with a tomato cream cheese spread. Entrees include a soup or salad, fresh vegetables and either rice pilaff or mashed or baked potato along with fresh rolls and butter. They offer a very diverse menu offering something for everyone!

The food was excellent. The view of the lake was beautiful. Jake, our waiter was attentive without being intrusive. Other staff was attentive as well. I guess it was the kitchen staff that brought our food when it was ready and our drink glasses were always full. Great place for a birthday celebration.

Customer service was fantastic. Reservations were easy to book. Door greeter was super sweet and very friendly..we had a newer waiter and he did superb. Would highly recommend this to any of my friends/family. The food was, as always, delicious and perfectly served!

Other than JB Hooks DID NOT have our reservation from Open Table (2nd time this has happened to us!!!), we had an outstanding meal at JB Hooks. The service and food was wonderful, and we enjoyed our dinner with a friend we hadn't seen in awhile from St. Louis. Hope to return soon!
