Shrimp - the Little Seafood with BIG Flavor

We are well-known for having the best seafood at the Lake of the Ozarks. It's partially because of the extensive variety of dishes that we offer, but mostly because our chefs know exactly how to make it taste irresistible! One very popular seafood item at JB Hook's happens to be shrimp. We serve it as an appetizer, as a main dish, and even as an addition to some of our other steak and seafood menu items. 


Fun Facts About Shrimp
Here are a few interesting facts about shrimp that you probably don't know. They are very intriguing (and delicious) creatures. 

  • Shrimp are found widely around the world in both fresh and salt water. There are over 2,000 different species of this water-dwelling creature. 
  • Americans are big shrimp fans. We eat about 1 billion pounds of them every year!
  • Selenium is found in shrimp. That's an antioxidant mineral that has been found to fight the growth of cancer-causing free radicals.
  • Shrimp are omnivorous, meaning they are known to eat both plant and animal matter. Some even catch and eat small fish.
  • If someone asks you if you want "green" shrimp, that just means it is uncooked. (If it's actually the color green, don't eat that one!)
  • Most of the shrimp you find on your plate can easily be eaten in 1 or 2 bites. The longest shrimp ever found was around 16 inches long! That might take a few more. 
  • A shrimp's lifespan varies anywhere from about 1 year to just over 6 years. During that time, they go through 16 different stages of life!
  • Every single shrimp is born as a male, but ends their life as a female!

"Finest dining on the lake. Excellent meal. Excellent service. Reliably A+"
-Cindy Lundh, Google review

"My wife and I ate there for lunch today and it was wonderful. The Ahi tuna was cooked to absolute perfection and the Bloody Mary’s were some of the best I have had. Taylor, our server was very attentive and friendly. Oh, did I forget to mention the million dollar view of the lake was absolutely beautiful."
-Vince Ninemire, Facebook review

"Had the salmon and coconut shrimp. Both were amazing. Probably the best salmon I've had. The sauce was out of this world. Shrimp was melt in your mouth. And the best part was our waiter, who had been there 19 years. Johnny was extremely helpful in our decisions. He was great to visit with as well. Maybe best waiter we've had."
-Carla P, Yelp review

"We go to JB Hooks once a year and each visit the service is outstanding with outstanding food. Best in the Lake Ozark area!"

-Susan H, Yelp review

"For this very special birthday celebration, we chose JB Hooks, our favorite restaurant, and asked for Rick Huntsman, our favorite server. The prime rib was superb! At the end of the meal, Rick presented our birthday celebrant with an exquisite creme brulee, served atop a platter with birthday greetings written in delicious raspberry sauce, topped off with a birthday candle. The evening was a resounding success, thanks to the chef and staff in the background and Rick and his charmingly efficient busser, Taylor, orchestrating the presentation and flow of food and drink at the table. Highly recommend for any meal, but most especially a special celebration. Be sure to ask for Rick; he pulls everything together seamlessly."

Holiday Entertaining Made Easy... With A Little Help From JB Hook's!

The holidays are an exciting time, but if you're the one in charge of planning a party, that excitement can quickly turn to stress. Our Lake of the Ozarks steak and seafood restaurant knows a few ways to help you avoid some of that stress. Hopefully, the following tips will alleviate enough of it to allow you to have more fun with your party guests.  



Host Your Party at JB Hook's
The easiest and most stress-free way to entertain everyone at your holiday party is to let us handle the setup, the cooking, and the cleanup when it's over! We have an extensive menu full of delicious dishes that everyone at your celebration will love, and our talented chefs can also create many different succulent dishes customized to match your favorite flavors. 

We have the beautiful Garden Room that can seat up to 30 guests for a lovely dinner party. It overlooks the main dining area and has a breathtaking 14-mile panoramic view of the lake. For larger parties, there is also the Sunset Room just off of the bar area. This private party space can hold up to 65 guests, and it has that same amazing lake view through the 3 walls of glass enclosing it. There is plenty of room for seating and it contains a gorgeous abalone-tiled fireplace.   



Let Us Do Some of the Cooking
If you prefer to host your get-together at home or it is taking place at your office, we can still take care of some of that cooking for you. Free up a little more of your own time by picking up salads, soups, or appetizers from JB Hook's to take to the party with you. We won't be there to clean up when it's over, but during the party, your guests' taste buds will be pleasantly satisfied and you don't have to worry about doing all of the cooking on your own. 



Begin or End With Cocktails in Our Bar
One option for making the party last longer but limit the time people spend at your home is to host a portion of the celebration at our Lake of the Ozarks fine dining restaurant. You could have everyone meet for Happy Hour while you make the final preparations at your place, and then they could carpool on over to the party. 

You could also cleverly get everyone out of the house at the end of the night by enjoying an after-party in our bar. All of your guests can head over for a nightcap or two, and if you end your event after an early dinner, you may still have time to catch some marvelous live music in our bar. We host the most amazing entertainers 6 nights a week from 5:30 - 8:00 pm, so head on over to JB Hook's with your group. The party cleanup can wait until after all of the fun is over! 



If you are in charge of hosting a holiday party this year, make it a lot easier on yourself and let JB Hook's take care of some of the work, or even better for you, all of it! Give us a call at 573-365-3255 and the event coordinator at our fine dining restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks will be happy to work out all of the details with you. The less time you spend getting things ready for the party by yourself, the more time you'll have left over for some holiday fun!

After-Dinner Drinks - Do You Prefer Hot or Cold?

Sometimes after you have finished dining on the best seafood at the Lake of the Ozarks, there's not quite enough room left for dessert, but you're still in the mood for something else. That's where our delicious after-dinner drinks come in handy. They offer you the chance to sip a delicious beverage and spend a bit more time enjoying conversation with your fellow diners while letting that amazing JB Hook's meal settle comfortably into your stomach. 


Our after-dinner drink menu is extensive, featuring single spirits and mixed cocktails. You will find savory hot coffee drinks and scrumptious concoctions made with ice cream, or you may prefer to keep things simple and enjoy a nice Port Wine, Cognac, or a Single Malt Scotch

If you go the cocktail route, how do you decide whether to go with something hot or something cold? It may simply be a personal preference, the current weather outside may have something to do with it, or the fantastic drink recipes below might be what sway your decision.
