Start Your Meal With Our Amazing Appetizers

People tend to focus on the main dishes when they search for the best restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. The lunch and dinner options at JB Hook's are hard to beat, but don't forget about our appetizer menus too. They are filled with a wide variety of delicious flavors that will tempt any taste bud. 

We have three separate appetizer menus: lunch, dinner, and our half-price Happy Hour. Many of these dishes appear on more than one menu, so you are able to get most of them at any time of day, but for this blog we have removed duplicate listings.
