Marvelously Mixed Martinis From JB Hook's

Image
James Thurber, an American writer, once said, "One martini is all right. Two are too many, and three are not enough." While we would never encourage anyone to overindulge in any alcoholic beverages in one sitting, you will want to come back often so you can try all of the amazing martini varieties that our bartenders have come up with. We only hire the very best mixologists at our Lake of the Ozarks fine dining restaurant


Martini Fun Facts
JB Hook's offers many signature martinis that each have their own unique ingredients. The original martini recipe was made with only gin and vermouth, and garnished with either an olive or a lemon twist. Today, most martinis are made with vodka, but they are not limited to only those two spirits. Garnishes come in all types now too, usually matching the flavor of that particular drink. Now, how about a few interesting martini facts.

There are three popular ways to order a classic martini. These are:Dry - made with dry vermouth and gin o…

The Best Seafood at the Lake of the Ozarks

October is an excellent time to dine at JB Hook's because it happens to be National Seafood Month, and we just happen to serve the best seafood at the Lake of the Ozarks! Our menu is filled with amazing variations on all types of ocean and freshwater fish dishes.


Benefits of Eating Seafood
First and foremost, one amazing benefit of dining on seafood is the fact that it tastes fantastic, but that's not the only reason you should focus on these menu items when you sit down for a meal. There are lots of health benefits to eating a diet that includes fish. It is recommended that you have at least 2 servings of seafood every week for proper nutrition.

Most seafood is packed with omega-3 fatty acids. This particular nutrient is extremely heart healthy, can reduce blood pressure and depression, and may reduce tissue inflammation, alleviating symptoms of arthritis. Seafood is also an excellent source of protein, vitamins, and minerals.
