Celebrate National Seafood Month At JB Hook's!

Image
The entire month of October is dedicated to one of our favorite things - seafood! JB Hook's takes pride in preparing and serving the best seafood at the Lake of the Ozarks for lunch, dinner, and "snack-time" in between those two meals. ("Snack-time" of course, falls right in line with our incredible Happy Hour!)


Today we are going to share a few reasons why eating seafood on a regular basis is a wonderful (and delicious) idea. After that, we'll give you a look at the terrific items we serve daily from our Shrimp & Oyster Bar and the seafood appetizers we offer. Next week's blog will be reserved for our lunch options followed by another week all about our fantastic dinners. All of that reading about seafood is an excellent start to National Seafood Month, but make sure that you come in and actually eat some too!

Seafood - A Healthy Dining Choice
There are a lot of different foods that fall under the "seafood" category, and most have many won…

Lobster - So Delicious, It Gets 2 National Holidays!

Image
Happy National Lobster Day! Those of you that follow food holidays might be thinking, "Hey, that's supposed to happen on June 15!" and actually, you wouldn't be wrong. Apparently, lobster is so amazing that it has earned itself 2 different days of celebration each year! Here at JB Hook's, we sort of celebrate it every day of the year by serving the best lobster at the Lake of the Ozarks on our regular menu. Here is a look at how this delicious seafood ended up with more than one nationally recognized holiday.


New England Wants More
In 2015, two senators from Maine lobbied to have the official National Lobster Day moved from June 15 to September 25. They claimed that the change was needed because it "underscores the significant role that lobsters play in supporting the economies of coastal communities across the country." You see, September 25 falls during New England's peak harvesting season for lobster. This is when the supply is highest, which mean…

4 Great Reasons Why the Lake of the Ozarks is Fantastic in the Fall

Image
There is only a little over a week of summer left to enjoy. Autumn 2018 officially begins on Saturday, September 22, but that doesn't mean that it's too late for a trip to the Lake of the Ozarks. Summer is the most popular time for people to travel to the lake area, but there are lots of reasons to spend some quality time here in the fall too.


Breathtaking Scenery
The leaves will soon begin changing, which means that breathtaking scenery outside the windows of our Lake of the Ozarks lake view restaurant will take on a new beauty for you to enjoy. The weather generally stays nice enough in autumn that you can still have your lunch or an afternoon cocktail on our JB Hook's covered outdoor patio overlooking the lake. Even if there's too much of a chill in the air, the floor-to-ceiling windows in our restaurant allow you the same gorgeous, unobstructed view.


Live Music
The best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks continues all year long here at JB Hook's, not just durin…
