JB Hooks Ratings and Reviews
Our group of 14 celebrated a friend's 98th birthday. We booked a private room, which was set up beautifully and worked incredibly well for our group. Our server, Anthony, was the best. He explained all the specials and was on top of everything, which isn't easy with a large group. Everyone enjoyed their meals and our bill was much less than I anticipated. The salmon special was by far the best I have ever had. Will definitely go back!
JB Hooks is always excellent. Food was very good and service was better. We were waited on by Johnny and were very impressed. He did not rush us , recommended a great bottle of wine, and we were very impressed by his tenure at Hooks. We will be back and will ask for Johnny.
We treated some special friends to dinner on their first trip to the Lake. The meal was awesome and our waiter Jake, added excellent service and laughter to the evening. Everyone truly enjoyed themselves. These are all reasons why JB Hooks remains one of our favorite restaurants at the Lake.
A+++ So spectacular I hate to write this review. Why? Because just like my favorite beach, it draws crowds. From our waiter, Jake, to my birthday Creme Brûlée, everything was spot on. I'm quite particular so I made a reservation. Table was ready on time, drinks were made well, my special salad request was honored and my dinner was wonderful. I had the grouper and my date had the prime rib. We got the garlic mashed potatoes and they did not disappoint. I also found out this is a small business and the owner was onsite and visited our table to ask how everything was. What more do you want? The price didn't even matter because it was the best dinner I've had in a long time. Thank you and we will be back!
we had an excellent meal with a great view of Lake of the Ozarks. We had filet/shrimp and prime rib. Meat was great, wonderful flavor. Great sides. Nice Maytag salad. They do corkage so we loved that Jake was a excellent server. Knew what he was doing and experienced. (even opening and serving wine properly, a lost art.) Owner came by to check on us as well.
We easily made our on-line reservations for my father-in-laws 87th Birthday dinner and were extremely pleased. The waiter, Johnny, was an experienced waiter with exceptional timeliness and great sense of humor. The view, drinks, appetizers, main courses and the Surprise!! birthday cake sampler were superb. It was probably our best dining experience at the Lake of the Ozarks area in over 50 years of traveling our short one hour drive. Thank You Again
JB Hooks did it again! Our group of 8 is not the easiest people to take care of. Not because we are needy but because we usually are so involved in our time together we forget to pay attention and order. Our server was so patient and kind. Organized and professional. Our dinners were outstanding and the split checks at the end didn't even phase them. Well done JB Hooks!!!
We had a wonderful dinner. Excellent good and wine. The Old Fadhioned was great, too. A spectacular view and great food with great service. Our server, Anthony, brought out a sample of Amaretto carrots just so our kids could try them before ordering. Then he took our oldest to the kitchen to get a piece of cake ready for my wife's birthday. Owner stopped by to see if we were pleased. I wouldn't hesitate to go back.
Probably the first time I was to JB Hooks when the food was just OK, not outstanding. Red Snapper was overcooked and the topping was tasteless. Was supposed to be blackened, seemed to be baked. Staff seemed to be rushed and restaurant was not busy. Not up to usual standards. Not sure I will be back at the prices charged.
My wife and I had never been to JB Hooks before last night. The service was outstanding. Our waiter was very professional yet not stuffy. Our dinners were amazing and hands down the best lobster and steak Neptune we have ever had. I would highly recommend JB Hooks for any occasion.
