The Top 3 Reasons We've Got the Best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks

After a long, hectic day at work, heading to Happy Hour lifts your spirits and helps you transition into your evening more relaxed. Finding the perfect one that fits into your schedule can take some time, but once you experience the extended Happy Hour at JB Hook's, your search will be over! There are lots of different reasons that our many return guests think we have the best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks. Here are the top 3 that we hear most often.

Half-Price Appetizers
Sure, we offer outstanding drink specials during Happy Hour in the bar area, but people tend to enjoy a bite to eat while they are drinking. Not only do we have a special menu just for Happy Hour, but all of the amazing appetizers on that menu are half-price! These aren't just "snacks" either. These plates are all savory and satisfying. Currently, that menu is made up of:

  • Hook's Famous Crunchy Fingers
  • Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos
  • Ahi Tuna Tacos
  • Smoked Salmon Baguettes
  • Bam Bam Wrap
  • Hook's Coconut Shrimp
  • French Dip Sliders
  • Hook's Cheeseburger Sliders
  • Seafood Salad Sliders
  • Crab Rangoons
  • Reuben Eggrolls 
  • Pot Stickers
  • Bleu Cheese Chips
  • Irish Crostini
  • Fried Green Beans
  • Hook's Beer Battered Onion Rings
  • Bruschetta Caprese
  • Smoked Tomato Cream Cheese with Lavosh Crackers

You'd think that the items above would be more than enough choices to offer, but we couldn't stop there. The best seafood at the Lake of the Ozarks is one of our specialties, so twice a week during Happy Hour, every Tuesday and Wednesday, we add a specially priced Happy Hour Raw Bar Menu full of delicious dishes from our Shrimp & Oyster Bar. These include: 
  • Oysters on the Half Shell
  • Jonah Crab
  • Poke Tuna
  • Jerk Shrimp Skewers
  • New Orleans BBQ Shrimp
  • Garlic Shrimp
  • Peel 'n' Eat Shrimp
  • Shrimp Cocktail
  • Steamed Clams
  • Steamed Mussels
  • Hook's Ceviche
  • Smoked Trio (mussels, scallops, & salmon)

More Than a Couple of Hours
Another thing that sets our Happy Hour in the bar area apart from all the rest is its length. Rather than just a couple of hours during the day, this time of year it runs every Monday through Friday from 3-8 pm and all day each Sunday! Those hours change slightly seasonally, but for right now that adds up to 35 hours weekly that you can join us for half-price appetizers, fantastic drink specials, and the next item on our list - amazing live music!

Amazing Live Music
JB Hook's piano bar is home to some of the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks from 5:30-8:30 every Monday-Saturday. That means on the weekdays, our live music schedule lines up perfectly with our extended Happy Hour. You can find an updated music schedule on the JB Hook's website, but even if you don't know who will be playing, you can come in knowing they will be talented and thoroughly entertaining!

In addition to all of the wonderful things mentioned above, the extended Happy Hour at our lake view restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is frequented by incredible people. Once you've come in a few times, you're bound to start recognizing some familiar faces and even make some new friends. Stop by and give JB Hook's Happy Hour a try soon. We would love to have you!
