5 Tips For Planning A Romantic Valentine's Dinner Experience

Valentine's Day will be here before you know it, and if you want to plan a romantic evening to share with your sweetheart featuring dinner at the best fine dining restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, don't wait. The sooner you start making plans, the better they will be and the smoother everything will go. JB Hook's has a few tips for you on how to fill this holiday date with romance. 

Plan Together or Surprise Your Date?
You know your Valentine best, so it's your call whether they will like a night filled with surprises or prefer to know what's in store. A mystery evening can be lots of fun if you don't mind doing all of the planning on your own. Just let your date know what to wear and when to be ready. If you map out the night together instead, you'll get the chance to work together to build an evening you know you both will love and can jointly look forward to.    

Make Dinner Reservations
Once you set the time you will be having that romantic dinner at JB Hook's, it will be easier to plan the rest of your date around that main event. Holiday reservations tend to book up quickly, so the sooner you make yours the better. You can do that by calling (573) 365-3255 or you can easily make a dinner reservation online through our website. 

Every item on our menu is made with fresh ingredients and the most delectable recipes, with care taken to ensure that each plate leaving the kitchen is both beautiful to look at and delicious to enjoy. For Valentine's Day on Wednesday, February 14, 2018, you are welcome to order off of the menu or take advantage of our holiday dinner special, which includes: 

  • Steak and lobster dinner for 2
  • A rose for the lady
  • A chocolate-covered strawberry for each
  • A complimentary glass of champagne per person

Dress to Impress
Remember that exciting feeling you got as a kid when you were all dressed up for prom? Slipping into something a little fancier than your everyday-wear does something to your mood and attitude, making everything seem a little more special. Valentine's Day, or any time you want to add a little romance to your life, is a wonderful time to put on your finest fashions to look and feel your best. It gives your date a view even more beautiful/handsome to look at than usual too. 

Take Your Time
The evening doesn't have to begin with your dinner plans. Bring your date in early and enjoy a cocktail in the bar while taking in our breathtaking 14-mile panoramic lake view, and possibly share an appetizer before your meal. Since Valentine's Day falls on a Wednesday, we will be hosting the best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks, which happens this time of year every weekday from 3-8 pm, plus all day each Sunday. It involves amazing drink specials as well as an extensive half-price Happy Hour menu in the bar area.

After Dinner 
Once your romantic meal is finished, the night is still young! If you've saved any room at all, we always have an amazing selection of delicious desserts available, and you can also enjoy an after-dinner drink together. Early diners will still have plenty of time to see a movie or take a moonlight drive around the lake. You may be able to find a bar that is hosting late-night entertainment for the holiday, or you could simply head home and have a glass of wine together on the couch and see where the evening takes you. The key is to have an option or two planned so that your date doesn't fizzle out too early. Think about things you like to do together and figure out a way to work that into the plans.  

With Valentine's Day is happening mid-week this year, you could make arrangements with your loved one to instead celebrate on the weekend before, after, or even better, both! Our Lake of the Ozarks steak and seafood restaurant is open 7 days a week at 11 am, with dinner service beginning at 5 pm. That gorgeous lake view can be seen from every room inside JB Hook's, plus the magnificent food and luxurious ambiance make any evening that you dine with us a chance for romance.
