JB Hook's Surf 'N' Turf Menu - The Best of Both Worlds!

When you dine at the best steak and seafood restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks , the toughest decision for you may be whether you should have a savory steak or a scrumptious seafood dish. The easiest way to break that tie is by choosing one of the magnificent menu items off of our JB Hook's Surf 'N' Turf menu. The best of both worlds, all on one plate! The term "Surf 'N' Turf" seems to have been introduced in the 1960's. If you are unfamiliar with what that is, it's very simple. The "Surf" portion refers to our delicious seafood items that once lived life in the water. "Turf" is food that is generally classified as a grass-fed land animal, most typically steak.  Put those two things together and the result is a delicious meal full of the best flavors imaginable, especially when it's coming out of our kitchen!

Looking For Valentine's Day Plans at the Lake of the Ozarks? We Can Help!

It's less than a month away from Valentine's Day, and one of the most romantic things that you can do for someone is to plan ahead for celebrating together in a special way. Last minute plans work if you can get away with them, but why risk it?

Many of the area hotels, resorts, and vacation rentals offer better rates too. Even if you live in town, renting a place to spend Valentine's Evening could make for an incredibly romantic stay-cation.    A Romantic Dinner Even th

The Intriguing History of JB Hook's

January is a time to look ahead to a brand new year full of possibilities. It's also a wonderful time to take a look back at the things that have happened to get you where you are right now. We are very excited about the coming months for our Lake of the Ozarks steak and seafood restaurant , and we decided to take a look back of our own. JB Hook's has a very interesting history.  Name Changes The JB Hook's that you know today has seen quite a few changes happen all around the lake area, and we've also gone through many changes of our own. When this restaurant opened, it was originally called Captain Hook's. Later, that named was changed to Krazo's.  John LaFata and Bruce Elliott reopened the restaurant under its current name of JB Hook's in February of 1995. Next month we'll be celebrating our 23rd year in business, nearly a quarter of a century!   A Tragic Fire It was a very exciting time, but unfortunately a few months in, there was a huge
