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 spe

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 Cam
