Started in the bar for cocktails. Didn't like the idea that you can still SMOKE in here. Music was nice & bartenders were great. Couldn't stay long so went upstairs for our meal. Not crowded at all. You could pick up a hint of smoke in the restaurant. Our food was delicious although we ate too much. Best wedge salad... More

We had a great experience at JB Hooks. We were celebrating our anniversary and Johnny Grist went above and beyond to make our dinner exceptional. From the wine suggestions to our delicious dessert, we were very satisfied with our choice to dine at JB Hooks. Thank you Johnny!

We always have a wonderful meal of exceptional quality when dining at J.B. Hook's. Last night our waitress, Kim, was excellent. The service was tops, the atmosphere (seated by the window with a wonderful view) was terrific, and the food, of course, was outstanding! We dine here frequently when at our lake home in the area. It's always a treat!

Walked in late on a Saturday night for a nice dinner out without kids. Our waiter Jake was exceptional! He let me try different wines so I could choose the right one for me. We started with the crab cakes for an appetizer, then had the steak and shrimp combination for dinner. Everything tasted great! Between the appetizer, crackers, bread,... More

I usually come to JB Hooks for dinner but on this occasion I came in for lunch and was afraid I wouldn't be able to get my favorite dish the walleye. I didn't need to worry because they went ahead and made it for me anyway! Wonderful as always. I definitely recommend it. Jason was our waiter and he was... More

As a weekender owning property at the lake, I always consider this place for tourists. And it is because it has a great view of the lake. However, the food is overpriced in my option and tastes like food for tourists. And what I mean by this is they cater to the tourist who may or may not be back.... More
