JB Hooks Ratings and Reviews

Superb meal and excellent ambiance. Steak, prime rib, shrimp and fish, we it all with our party of four and all were great. Haven't visited here for awhile due to some past mediocre experiences but could find nothing wrong last Saturday night and happy we couldn't. Good job!

Tilapia with Grand Marnier sauce - fish flaky and moist and the sauce was excellent. My husband ordered scallops with his filet, both of which were cooked to perfection. The toddler grandkids loved the Grouper Fingers. Highly recommend The French Gentleman or The French Lady martini! Four generations of our family had a wonderful dinner and evening.

Most of the food was delicious (except for the dish discussed in this review), and the views were very good, but our server was lacking. She was almost argumentative with us, and we felt like we were being rather easy going guests. We had a member of our group who was celiac, and she proceeded to inform us that there was only 1 item on the menu he could eat, and without any seasoning at that, and wouldn't let him order anything else. We thought this very strange, since many of the items on the menu should not contain gluten, based on the descriptions and common preparation methods. When provided an ingredient list for one of the items he was not allowed to order, there was nothing in it that would indicate an allergen issue, and all of the ingredients were very straight forward. We got the impression that the server was confusing gluten with some other allergen, though we couldn't figure out what other allergen would be. Normally we would just chalk something like this up to an overly helpful/protective server, but she was insistent that the celiac in our group was only going to be allowed to eat the one item. In addition, she was almost pushy in insisting the rest of the party order what she recommended. If we had a different server, we may have ended up with a 5 star review.

Our family group, including 2 small children, had an exceptional meal with professional service. The steaks were prepared to our specification. Cocktails were excellent and we were able to sample wines before ordering a full glass. Desserts were delicious! We will definitely return to JB Hooks next time we are in the area.

Had a great time with my wife for her 50th Birthday, setting the reservation was easy, I noted the occasion and special window request on the reservation, they were not tracking either item until I requested it again at the desk. Had to wait a few minutes for our reservation but hardly worth mentioning and they did honor the window location. A jazz band playing up near the bar for entertainment was very good and far enough away that the noise level was fine for our discussions. The food was good and portions were sufficient. The wait staff was very good and even though he didn't introduce his position, I assumed the owner came around and checked on us. Would definitely recommend as a place to eat and go back.

I now understand how this restaurant has earned the title "JB Crooks". All food was overpriced, and not just because it is a nice restaurant - the same glass of Chardonnay at Baxters was $4 less. Our meals were substandard across the board (except for the Jr. menu steak - really, though, that from 8 meals is sad). Baxters has just as good of a view, better service, better ambiance, and way better food.

Love JB Hooks
It's our favorite restaurant at the lake. Whether lunch, dinner or happy hour they have the diverse selections on their menu for everyone. The service is always great and prompt. We can't go to the lake without going there once or twice

JB Hooks was recommended by a couple of people we know. As we are new to the area, we decided to try what others like first and then explore on our own. The food and service were great, although it was pretty pricy. It was packed on a Thursday night, so it must be a local favorite. We will definitely go back!
Great service and great food! So good we ...
Great service and great food! So good we ate there twice this trip! The steaks are tender and delicious-we love JB Hooks! Great service very attentive but never intrusive! Great wine list! And happy hour is amazing!
We are hooked!

My husband and I went to Jb hooks for my birthday. Jake our server was fantastic. We had crab cakes to start with and for dinner we did the steak and lobster for 2. Everything was wonderful. At the end of our dinner Jake surprised us with a fantastic dessert. I would recommend all of my friends and family here. Service And food are spectacular.

The Celebration of my bday was made extra special with my wonderful Gift Card supplied by Heather Smith to me as a Bday Gift.. to have a Romantic Dinner with my Hubby.. The meal was beyond wonderful.. and the waiter Jake was SUPERB. I loved my Mojito Beverage which was recommended by Heather and made by her I suspect.. with all the fresh mint and fruit.. just what I needed to top off a great day!.. I so loved the dessert and I think my hubby even enjoyed it better than I did... with that said Thank You JB Hook's for one awesome Bday Dinner..

JB Hooks is one of my favorite places to eat at the lake, but my absolute favorite for the view - you simply can't beat it! Put the combination together and you have the scene for a great lunch or dinner. The food has always been fantastic and the staff are great. We'll be back again next year -- it wouldn't be the same without a visit there.

Our food was delicious. My son ordered a steak and cleaned his plate. My husband ordered crB cakes and he really savor end every bite.
I ordered chicken wings, they were excellent, however one of the wings looked like someone had been eating it. I did report it to management when they asked about our meal; I was was surprised at there (or lack of) respond. They did ask if I wanted more wings.

I used the online reservation system about 1/2 hour before we wanted to dine on a Thursday evening. We walked in and were immediately seated at a requested window seat. The view, service, and meal were outstanding.

We made a reservation for 7:45pm and was not seated till close to 8:15. Once seated, we asked for a wine list and never got one. My wife just decided to ask for a glass of Riesling. After another 10 minutes our drinks finally came, but our server did not take our order. We waited another 10-15 minutes for her to come back to get our order. My wife enjoyed her meal (fillet and lobster tail). I thought mine was pretty good as well (fried shrimp). The French Onion soup was not the best, but their salads are pretty good. In the end, we felt pretty neglected by our waitress. We ended up being there for 2 hours with a reservation. The food was alright for the price, but for that price I would suggest Baxters, Bentley's or JJ's at the Copperpot.
