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.

4 Great Reasons Why the Lake of the Ozarks is Fantastic in the Fall

There is only a little over a week of summer left to enjoy. Autumn 2018 officially begins on Saturday, September 22, but that doesn't mean that it's too late for a trip to the Lake of the Ozarks. Summer is the most popular time for people to travel to the lake area, but there are lots of reasons to spend some quality time here in the fall too. photo from  Breathtaking Scenery The leaves will soon begin changing, which means that breathtaking scenery outside the windows of our Lake of the Ozarks lake view restaurant will take on a new beauty for you to enjoy. The weather generally stays nice enough in autumn that you can still have your lunch or an afternoon cocktail on our JB Hook's covered outdoor patio overlooking the lake. Even if there's too much of a chill in the air, the floor-to-ceiling windows in our restaurant allow you the same gorgeous, unobstructed view.
