There's Always Something New to Discover at JB Hook's!

JB Hook's has been around for a very long time. The lake-view fine dining restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks that you know and love today originally opened its doors in February of 1995. Since then people have learned to always expect the same attention to detail, same top-quality customer service, and same outstanding food and drinks every time they come in to visit us.

Of course, that doesn't mean that everything is always the exact same around here. We still do our very best to keep your experience at JB Hook's new, fresh, and exciting during every visit. You know we always keep things delicious, and here are just a few of the ways that we keep it all interesting for you too.

Savory Seafood Lunches at JB Hook's at the Lake of the Ozarks

Our delicious tribute to National Seafood Month continues this week with more of the best seafood at the Lake of the Ozarks. Last week's blog took a look at our Seafood Appetizers and Shrimp & Oyster Bar and today we're featuring the many mouthwatering seafood choices we offer daily for lunch at JB Hook's.

Seafood for Lunch
Lunch is served from 11 am-4 pm, 7 days a week at JB Hook's. You can enjoy a fantastic mid-day meal and our breathtaking 14-mile panoramic lake view from the bar area, the Sunset Room, and (weather permitting) our lovely covered outdoor patio.

Celebrate National Seafood Month At JB Hook's!

The entire month of October is dedicated to one of our favorite things - seafood! JB Hook's takes pride in preparing and serving the best seafood at the Lake of the Ozarks for lunch, dinner, and "snack-time" in between those two meals. ("Snack-time" of course, falls right in line with our incredible Happy Hour!)

Today we are going to share a few reasons why eating seafood on a regular basis is a wonderful (and delicious) idea. After that, we'll give you a look at the terrific items we serve daily from our Shrimp & Oyster Bar and the seafood appetizers we offer. Next week's blog will be reserved for our lunch options followed by another week all about our fantastic dinners. All of that reading about seafood is an excellent start to National Seafood Month, but make sure that you come in and actually eat some too!

Seafood - A Healthy Dining Choice
There are a lot of different foods that fall under the "seafood" category, and most have many won…

Lobster - So Delicious, It Gets 2 National Holidays!

Happy National Lobster Day! Those of you that follow food holidays might be thinking, "Hey, that's supposed to happen on June 15!" and actually, you wouldn't be wrong. Apparently, lobster is so amazing that it has earned itself 2 different days of celebration each year! Here at JB Hook's, we sort of celebrate it every day of the year by serving the best lobster at the Lake of the Ozarks on our regular menu. Here is a look at how this delicious seafood ended up with more than one nationally recognized holiday.

They claimed that the change was needed because it "underscores the significant role that lobsters play in supporting the economies of coastal communities across the country." You see, September 25 falls during New England's peak harvesting season for lobster. This is when the supply is highest, which mean…
