Join Us At JB Hook's This 4th of July Weekend

With the 4th of July falling on a Monday this year, you get the entire weekend to celebrate. That means approzimately 4 dinners and 3 lunches (unless you are lucky enough to get all day Friday off too) that you will be looking for something tasty to eat. 

JB Hook's has a big enough menu that you could join us for all of those meals and have something dramatically different each time, but great food isn't the only reason to join us this holiday weekend. Our lake view restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks has a lot to offer both visitors and local residents this 4th of July weekend. 



Fireworks
The uninterrupted, 14-miles panoramic view of the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks is visible from every seat in the main dining room and our special event room, most of the tables in the bar, and of course, from our covered outdoor patio. This is breathtaking, no matter what time of day or time of year that you are here, but during holidays featuring fireworks, it's even more special. 

At dusk, we turn down the lights so that everyone at JB Hook's can enjoy the many vibrant fireworks displays taking place over the water. We are positioned perfectly to see quite a few of them. You can see a full list of dates and times for local fireworks at Funlake.com



Holiday Happy Hours
We have the best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks with incredible food and drink specials, and it even happens on Sundays! Every Monday-Friday from 3-7 pm and Sunday from 2-6 pm our bar fills up with a fun group of people for Happy Hour. That means over the 4th of July holiday weekend, you can join us on Friday, Sunday, and Monday!

Drink specials include buy-1-Get-1-Free on each of the following: well drinks, house wines, and our very popular homemade red or white Sangria. To go along with the drinks, our food specials are unbelievable. You can choose from a long list of 1/2-price gourmet appetizers, including Crunchy Grouper Fingers, Hook's Cheeseburger Sliders, Crab Rangoon, Ahi Tuna Tacos, and much more.   



Full Lunch & Dinner Menus
JB Hook's opens every day at 11:00 am, and lunch is served from 11 am - 4 pm in the bar, Sunset Room, and also on the patio when the weather permits. Our lunch menu features salads, soups, and our Shrimp & Oyster Bar, plus delicious appetizers and filling entrees, perfectly sized for an afternoon meal. Be sure to ask your server about our daily $5.99 lunch special.  

Dinner in the evening is equally as amazing, with many added benefits. The plates are bigger for a hungry appetite after a full day of fun at the lake, and the choices feature the best steak and seafood at the Lake of the Ozarks. Some of our most popular entrees are the Steak & Australian Lobster Tail, Lobster Pasta, Chicken Oscar, and Alaskan King Crab, but there's a lot more where those came from. 



We expect to see all of you at some point this 4th of July weekend at our Lake of the Ozarks restaurant, and if it's more than once, even better! JB Hook's is a fun, relaxing, delicious place to enjoy a wonderful holiday at the lake. Have a great weekend!

5 Great Ways to Spend Father's Day With Dear Old Dad

Sometimes it's tough to decide on the perfect way to let Dad know how you feel about him on Father's Day. If you are lucky enough to be in the lake area on this important holiday, JB Hook's has come up with a few wonderful ways that you can enjoy some quality time with Dad this weekend.  



Boating/Fishing

When you are at the Lake of the Ozarks, this is possibly the #1 activity that everyone wants to take advantage of. Load up the boat and play captain for dear old Dad. Spend the morning at his favorite fishing hole, then explore a new arm of the lake you haven't visited yet. No worries if you don't have a boat. There are plenty of rental places in the area, and lots of good fishing holes that you can reach by land. 


Local attraction

The lake area is also full of a wide variety of family fun attractions. The Lake of the Ozarks State Park if filled with great trails to hike, picnic areas to enjoy, and even a couple of beaches. A little farther away in Camdenton, you will find the natural scenic wonders of Ha Ha Tonka and Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park. A little exercise in the midst of this area's natural beauty makes for a great afternoon out.  


Play Ball

There are over a dozen impressive golf courses around the area. If that's your father's favorite pastime, then that is a great way to spend Father's Day with him. If he's not on the links often, maybe a rousing round of mini-golf would be better suited and fun for the entire family. 

There are lots of other sporting opportunities available in the area too. Challenge Dad to a race at one of the many go-kart tracks, or bowl a few rounds of ten-pin. You can also find lazer tag in Osage Beach, or shoot a little skeeball on the Bagnell Dam Strip. Even if you only head to the backyard to toss the football or baseball back and forth, it's the time together that your father will really love.      




Happy Hour

If you are 21 or older, head to Happy Hour with your dad. We've got best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks during the week, plus every Sunday too. (Father's Day is on a Sunday. Coincidence? We think not!) On Father's Day, from 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm, enjoy our extensive half-price appetizer menu, along with buy-1-get-1 drink specials on well drinks and house wine, including our delicious, homemade Sangria. 

The Cardinals and the Royals are both playing this Sunday at 1:15 pm. Those games will still be in full swing during our Happy Hour. 


Lunch or Dinner

Give Dad a break from the grill this Father's Day weekend and bring him to our Lake of the Ozarks seafood and steak restaurant for a delicious meal. JB Hook's offers the tastiest menu, most amazing drinks, and incredible customer service, all with the most beautiful lake view in the area. No matter where you sit inside the restaurant or on the patio, the breathtaking view is a part of the package. 



The most special gift that you can give to any father is time spent with you. Let our Lake of the Ozarks lake view restaurant be either the beginning of an incredible day out, or the amazing ending to one this Father's Day weekend. We'd like to wish every dad out there an incredible holiday.

Refreshing Summer Signature Cocktails

The weather continues to warm up and we are closer every day to the official beginning of summer on June 20. This makes the thought of sitting outside on our patio and enjoying the best view at the Lake of the Ozarks with a refreshing cocktail in hand sound better and better.

The talented bartenders at JB Hook's create incredible drinks on a daily basis. We have a fully stocked bar, allowing them to mix up nearly anything that your heart desires. If you would like to try something a little different than your "go-to drink," you might like one of these delicious signature cocktails. 



Hooked Lakewater
A very popular local drink that tastes a whole lot better than the actual water out of the lake. Our recipe blends coconut rum and fruity cordials with pineapple juice.

Arnold Palmer Martini
A delicious twist on this summer beverage. Sweet tea vodka, fresh lemon, citrus vodka, triple sec, and sweet & sour.

Cherry Limeade Martini
A warm weather classic, ours contains cherry vodka, citrus vodka, fresh lime, triple sec, sweet & sour, and grenadine.

Pineapple Paradise Martini
An island treat in a martini glass. It is made up of coconut rum, melon and banana liqueurs, and pineapple juice.

Orange Creamsicle Martini
Drinking this is a lot less messy than eating the ice cream version when you were a kid. It has orange-cream vodka, triple sec, vanilla vodka, ½ & ½, and orange juice.

Strawberry Margarita
Nothing says summer like a refreshing frozen cocktail. This fruity margarita is made from strawberry puree, tequila, triple sec, and sweet & sour, blended adn served frozen.

Mudslide
An adult version of a chocolate milkshake. Vanilla ice cream blended with Irish Cream, Kahlua, and vanilla vodka.

Peaches & Cream
Light, cool, and bursting with flavor. We blend vanilla ice cream with peach liqueur and vanilla vodka.

Banana Split
Another ice cream treat favorite from your childhood, but much easier to drink through a straw. Vanilla ice cream is blended with Crème De Banana and Crème De Cacao. 



As we mentioned earlier, our JB Hook's bartenders are very talented, so if you prefer a non-alcoholic drink, they can definitely mix up something special for you too. Just imagine yourself enjoying a savory meal and refreshing drink at he best restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks with our 14-mile panoramic view in full site. Now, stop imagining it and get yourself here! A summer spent with us is always an incredible one.
