Our Happy Hour is Bigger & Better Than Ever

Fall is when the days start getting shorter, but the best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks gets bigger! The lake area gets a little bit quieter in the off-season, so JB Hook's offers you a little extra time to sit back, relax, and enjoy all that our Happy Hour has to offer.  Extended Happy Hour We have lengthened our weekly Happy Hour by one hour, and we've done even better on the weekends by hosting it all day on Sunday ! Every Monday-Friday we'll offer our specials from 3-8 pm, and on Sundays you can enjoy Happy Hour in the bar area from 11 am - 8 pm. Just in case you haven't had the joy of experiencing these at JB Hook's before, here is what you can expect when you join us. Drink Specials Our talented bartenders are experts at creating the most amazing cocktails from our fully-stocked bar. During Happy Hour, you will get Buy-1-Get-1-Free specials on all of our well drinks, house wine, and our extremely popular Homemade Sangria. Both white and red

What Are You Doing For Lunch? JB Hook's Has A Great Idea!

According to popular belief, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and people generally make a big deal about dinner too, but what about lunch? In our opinion, this midday meal is highly underrated. We offer the best lunch at the Lake of the Ozarks and an incredible view to enjoy it by.  Those of us here at JB Hook's did a little digging, and we came up with a few interesting facts about this midday meal.   Lunch was originally called "dinner," and dinner was referred to as "supper." The word "lunch" is short for "luncheon" which is a meal typically eaten at midday. Those two words originated from the German "lunchentach." Working through lunch can actually cause poor performance at your job, and often doesn't allow you to get your job done any sooner. Leaving the office for lunch is a great way to break up the monotony and boost your energy for the other half of the day. Skipping lunch is bad for your m

The Reviews Are In, & Diners LOVE JB Hook's!

When we claim to be the best fine dining restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks , you might think that we are just tooting our own horn. (We are a little biased... we love this place!) The best way for us to get the word out about JB Hook's in a way that people will really believe is through the opinions of people that have dined in our Lake of the Ozarks seafood and steak restaurant.  Reviews are an excellent tool for customers to find businesses that they can trust. There are lots of sites online that are very careful about the reviews that they print, making sure that they are authentic before sharing them with the public. This gives the people writing the reviews the confidence to be honest, and those reading them the faith that they are real. Here are a few recent reviews about JB Hook's that our customers shared online.   " Everything was perfect! I got the steak and shrimp dinner and I couldn't have asked for anything more delicious! The steak just melte

2 "Salute to Veterans" Events This Weekend

The wonderful men and women that voluntarily defend our country and everything that it stands for are very important to us. JB Hook's is not alone in the pride we feel for these wonderful Americans. The lake area has a couple of family friendly events this weekend honoring our veterans.  Hot Summer Nights - "Vettes For Veterans" The final Hot Summer Nights for 2016 will be taking place this Friday, September 9 , on the historic Bagnell Dam Strip , just up the road from your favorite Lake of the Ozarks fine dining restaurant . According to the event's Facebook page, there are already 76 Corvettes signed up to parade the strip, each carrying a veteran, and they expect to have more signed up before the weekend! This annual patriotic parade will begin at 6 pm, so you will want to make sure you have your spot to watch the parade well before that time. Flags will be passed out to onlookers to wave proudly during during the procession. In addition to the incredibl

It's Time to Celebrate Labor Day Weekend at the Lake

We think it's always an exciting time to be at the lake, but holiday weekends seem to make it even more special. Our Lake of the Ozarks lake view restaurant offers a spectacular place to watch all of the boat traffic traveling back and forth, and inside JB Hook's we've got plenty for you to enjoy too.  Fireworks! This isn't something we have for you every day at JB Hook's, but on holiday weekends in the summer you can enjoy multiple fireworks displays from our 14-mile panoramic view. Many different displays are visible from the comfort of the bar and dining room. We make it extra special by dimming the lights so that you can see the show even better. No matter where you are seated in the restaurant, you will have a spectacular view.  Fun! You can enjoy 3 of our incredible Happy Hours over the holiday weekend. Begin and end your Labor Day weekend with our weekday Happy Hour, which happens Monday through Friday from 3-7 pm, and we even throw in an extra on
