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 melted in your mouth and the shrimp was perfectly breaded. Then after a fantastic dinner I had an even better dessert. It was a fantastic turtle cheesecake. It was light and creamy with pecans and chocolate drizzled on top. Although my favorite part of the whole experience was the view!"

"We had a delicious Greek salad and filets that were tender and juicy, perfectly cooked to order. This is our favorite restaurant at the lake and we look forward to going back soon."

"I haven't been to JB Hooks in about two years, but I found them to be just as good as I remember. My family had a beautiful view from a window seat, an excellent meal covering soups and salads (Greek and the Salmon Bisque), appetizers (try the cornflake encrusted grouper fingers with raspberry chipotle sauce - it's amazing), a main course (Grouper, Hooks Tournadoes, and Mahi Mahi), and dessert (molten chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream), as well as a few drinks. To top it all off, we had excellent service from Marty (ask for her, she's lovely) and the other staff. Having said all that, and I do recommend it, but it isn't inexpensive. Be prepared to spend a little more than you would at other places around the Lake. However, all things considered - the service, the quality of the food, the view, the ambiance, etc - I think it's worth it, and as such, I plan to return much sooner than in two years."

"This place has fantastic food and views of the lake! We had the stuffed mushrooms, the grouper fingers (AMAZING!), and the mahi po boy; everything was awesome! We really enjoyed our mules (we tried 4 different ones, all quite delicious). We will be back next time we come to the lake!"

"The French Onion Soup was fabulous - not to be missed. The appetizers were so large they could serve them as a main course. Our friendly waiter has been there for 27 years and attended our table well. Never have had a bad meal here. And the view.... what can I say... wonderful sunsets."

"My fiancé and I went to JB hooks for a nice dinner and we got exactly that. The salmon was absolutely phenomenal! It was their special of the night. I just felt that it was so good I had to give this place 5 stars! Highly recommend the blackened salmon with honey butter and of course a bottle of wine "

"Recommended by a neighbor from the condo we are at for the week. Decided to try them out. No disappointment here. Excellent wait staff. Nicely appointed building with a beautiful view of the lake. All of our dishes were excellent. My wife and I had the Walleye. Good portion sized fillet and excellent sides. If back in the area this one will be a must redo."
~ Jerry B, Yelp review
"The location of this restaurant, high on an Ozark cliff overlooking the lake is enough to make you want to go there, but the food is an added treat!! The grouper fried with a corn flake batter scared me a little on the menu, but was absolutely delicious! And the crab cakes were divine!! The service was excellent and we will definitely stop here again!"
