What Customers Are Saying About JB Hook's Restaurant

JB Hook's has become the best seafood restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks partly because of the feedback that we receive from customers.  A wonderful review lets us know that people like what we are doing, and encourages us to keep it up.  A bad review can point out a problem we were not aware of, letting us fix it and make more customers happy.  
Here is what a few of the most recent diners at our Lake of the Ozarks restaurant had to say about their visit.  

"Birthday lunch was perfection. A 10 mile view of Lake of the Ozarks, impeccable service and exquisite food. Took my gal pal to celebrate her birthday and they surprised us with delicious cheesecake. Didn't ask for it but they delivered! Can't say enough great things about this place."
-LisaFlyFishing, TripAdvisor review

"Recommended and was not disappointed! Stopped in for lunch and between us we had Peel and Eat Shrimp, Crab Cakes, and Fish and Chips. Food was timely and delicious and the service was outstanding! Looking forward to visiting again the next time we are in Osage Beach."
-Laura R, Yelp review

"Complete menu makes it hard to decide. Four of us each chose a different dish. Two fish and two beef. Everyone felt their meal was great. The Greek Salad and Wedge Salad were also very good. Wine list was very acceptable for this restaurant. There was a significant range for potential wine drinkers in price and type."
-OpenTableDinerSince2015, Open Table review

" Very pleasant and tasty lunch! Good sevice! We like JB Hooks for the good food and the view of the lake! Margaritas are great and freshly mixed. Food is always good, and we have been coming here for many years when we visit the lake. Gina was our server and very very nice, thoughtful and attentive! She made our day!"
-blondieStLouis, TripAdvisor review

"I went here with a group of 12, including young children. We spent several hours dining. Loved the piano and the sunset view. Good food presented great! They where very accommodating. Can't wait to go back in a more intimate setting!"
-Oliver, Zomato review

"We made a reservation for a party of 8 to celebrate my father-in- law's birthday on July 12, 2015. The steaks and seafood were all outstanding! We had one family member with food allergies who asked our waiter a lot of questions to make sure she could eat the food. Our waiter who I wish I could remember his name was wonderful. He answered all the food questions and his service was as outstanding as the food. Definitely recommend this restaurant especially if you are looking for an upscale place to eat."
-Christine P, Yelp review

"Wonderful View of the Lake. The food was excellent. What I liked best was the food came out as it was supposed to. We had time to relax and enjoy our appetizer before the salad. The server made sure that our needs were attended to but we didn't feel rushed. It was a special occasion for us and the restaurant made sure we were treated that way"
-Anniversary Couple, Open Table review

"Great food, hostess was very professional and kind. Went to happy hour tonight, 9/21 and had an excellent time with my husband. We are from Oklahoma, and come here every time were at the Lake! Food is amazing and is so nice to be greeted by such a welcoming face, great wait staff as well! Highly recommend this restaurant."

Labor Day Weekend - Food, Friends, & Fireworks

It's holiday weekend time again!  We are expecting great weather, lots of visitors to the Lake, and plenty of excitement all weekend long.  At least part of your Labor Day weekend should be spent at the best seafood restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. We have all of your favorite dishes on our menu, an incredible view of the Labor Day fireworks, and the Lake of the Ozarks' best Happy Hour with drinks, food, and live entertainment.  

Watch multiple fireworks displays.

Fireworks are a great end to a day full of fun.  They were invented in China, and the earliest documentation of them is from the 7th century.  Fireworks were believed to scare away evil spirits from celebrations and bring about luck and happiness.  We still use them for many festive events, and they definitely seem to make people happy. JB Hook's amazing 14-mile panoramic view allows our customers to see many of the local displays right from their table.  We like to turn the lights down low when the begin and enjoy the show.  

Hang out at Happy Hour.

We were recently dubbed the most "Happenin' Happy Hour" by Kansas City's 435 Magazine.  You will have the chance to enjoy our Happy Hour twice over Labor Day weekend:  Friday from 3-7 pm and Sunday from 2-6 pm.  It features an extensive half-price appetizer menu, including Crunchy Grouper Fingers and French Dip Sliders.  All of the well drinks, house wine, and our delicious house-made Sangria are buy-1-get-1.  The fabulous Mike V will be performing in the bar area on Friday from 5:30-8 pm, and also on Sunday with the amazing Cheryl Lynn from 2-5 pm. Great food, amazing drinks, incredible specials, and talented musicians.  Definitely a wonderful time that you will make you happy.    

Eat delicious ocean fish, steaks, and more. 

We have the best food at the Lake of the Ozarks because our chefs take pride in every dish that they create.  You can start out with an appetizer or something from our savory shrimp and oyster bar, follow that with a little Surf 'N Turf like our incredible Steak and Australian Lobster Tail, and then finish it up with one of our tasty dessert selections.  Make sure that you save some room!   

We can't wait to celebrate Labor Day weekend with everyone.  Your favorite Lake of the Ozarks restaurant is ready for the excitement to get started.  Don't forget though, we do this every weekend.  (Well, all but the fireworks!)  Join us for this holiday, and come back again and again to enjoy a wonderful afternoon or evening with us at JB Hook's.
