My daughter reserved a room for my surprise birthday lunch. We received excellent service from Aimee, Janie, Cass and Kyle. They all work together like a team to keep our party of 25 happy. The food was delicious and the day was perfect thanks to...them.!More

Make sure that you are truly ravishing for delicious cuisine upon arrival to JB Hooks at Lake of the Ozarks! We just celebrated another birthday for my incredible husband and they deliver extraordinary delights! From the appetizers to his birthday creme brulee Huntsman made us,...feel like the only couple in the restaurant. Stellar dinner and impeccable service! Thank you so much.More

Kelly you're awesome. I took my family out to JB Hook's a week or so ago. The views are breathtaking. The food and cocktails were delicious but i want to focus on our server. She seemed to have the ability to see in the future....We had 2 young kids with us. They can be needy as well as a big group of people. Before we could ask for it she had it there. Didn't matter what it was she eagerly took care of all of our needs. She was beautiful witty and funny. My family really enjoyed her. She definitely made our experience memorable. So if you go to JB Hook's make sure you ask for Kelly. And tell her we said thank you!!!More

Stopped in for lunch as we were passing through and had a truly great meal. We had the best shrimp cocktail I’ve had in years, very large cold,dry shrimp with excellent cocktail sauce. I also got oysters on the half shell that were as good...as I have had on the coast. Top it off with a fantastic lake view and great service from our waitress, Linda, and it couldn’t have been better. This place knows seafood, definitely give it a try when you are in town.More

We have been visiting JB’s twice a year for the past 10 years and today will be the last. We were seated 30 minutes past our reservation time all the while starring at open tables that would have seated our party of 4. Then, once...we got to our table, our waiter spilled water all over one of our guest then did nothing to help clean it up. The manager gave us a free appetizer but then 2 of our steaks were 20* undercooked and the pork chop was dangerously rare. Sadly this Restraunt is a tradition that has come to an end for us.More

I really enjoyed my dinner tonight. I asked for a table off the beaten path and I got one. Greek salad was tasty, Steak was cooked really well, though could use more seasoning. Desert was really good too. Service was excellent, was greeted by several...people and asked if was being taken care of. Will be coming again!More

My husband and I came to JB Hooks for my birthday. Christopher was outstanding, very attentive. Our drinks never went dry and the food came out quickly. I had a kc strip steak, it was cooked perfectly and had rested adequately prior to being brought...to the table. My husband had the grouper supreme which was also cooked perfectly.More

Shorts and a polo shirt attire will work. I looked at the photo from our event and found that Is what a majority of the men in our party wore. Some did opt for slacks. One even wore jeans.
