JB Hook's Wine & Seafood Pairings

Wine pairing is an important part of any meal. At the best seafood restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, we have an expansive selection of wine to ensure you have the perfect pairing for your meal. To help make your selection a little bit easier for the next time you dine at Lake of the Ozarks' best seafood restaurant, here are a few of our popular dishes and wines that complement them.
