We Have Exciting News - A Bigger, Better JB Hook's!

JB Hook's Legendary Steaks & Seafood has some exciting news to share... we are expanding our Lake of the Ozarks fine dining restaurant! You've undoubtedly noticed the construction equipment and work going on outside, and today we're going to give you some information on the exciting things to expect once all of the new construction is finished.

Through the Years
The Lake of the Ozarks seafood & steak restaurant that you know and love today was originally opened in 1978 by Dave and Phillis Marose as Captain Hook's. A few years down the road the building was purchased by Dwayne and Donna Steele, who changed the name to Krazo's.

It wasn't until 1995 that the restaurant was purchased by Bruce Elliott and John LaFata. They renamed the establishment as JB Hook's Great Ocean Fish & Steaks. A remodel was done when they took it over, but just a few months later, in May 1995, a fire broke out and destroyed most of the building. An entire summer season had to be missed during the rebuilding, but the doors were opened back up in September 1995.

The Expansion
The last expansion made to today's JB Hook's was in 2000 when the lovely Sunset Room and our beautiful 14-mile panoramic view outdoor patio were both added. The new expansion, which is happening right now, will add approximately 7000 square feet to the existing restaurant!

We are looking at just about 8 months until our finish date. One of the things that you can look forward to when it's completed will be a breathtaking 180-degree gorgeous lake view. We will also be introducing the newest innovative kitchen equipment to elevate your fine dining experience. The delicious foods you already love are going to be even better!

With everything that our Lake of the Ozarks bar & restaurant has to offer, from our new menu, wine selections, Happy Hour specials, and fantastic live music, there is truly something for everyone. Since opening the doors in 1995, the friendly staff here at JB Hook's has strived to make our guests' fine dining experience a pleasant and memorable one. We have proudly kept our #1-rated position on TripAdvisor for outstanding food and quality service thanks to your many kind reviews, and we plan to continue providing that excellent experience each time that you join us in the future.

We are all extremely excited about watching the progress of our new expansion as it happens, and we hope that you are too. Don't just keep an eye on it as you drive by. Come on in and join the discussion as we all look forward to this new addition. We will be keeping the community updated as we move closer to the completion date.

Everyone here at JB Hook's wants to thank all of our guests, past, present, and future, for the continued support. Things around here just keep getting better and better, and you are all an important part of that!

  1. Donna and Dwayne Steele operated it as Captain hooks for 6 years before they changed it to Krazos. I know I ran the kitchen for most of that time..
