Outstanding food in a timely manor. Plus Rich and his crew was some of the best waiters I've ever had. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a couple of two or a party of 15 or more.

Rich was amazing! He knew the menu, dishes, ingredients forward, backwards, and sideways. He recommended a swordfish steak and it was unbelievable!

JB Hooks has the best seafood and steaks at the lake, hands down. The Steak Neptune is my favorite, a filet stuffed with crab meat and shrimp, with Béarnaise sauce. I'd rank the crab legs right up there with it, they are large and tasty....More

Had an amazing time with friends... The view was perfect! Had dinner and apps before a movie! Atmosphere was nice... the main bar was busy and the music was a little blah but overall fun... I will be back with family in the summer!

You would be welcome in shorts or just about anything you feel comfortable in.
this restaurant has a great reputation for the food and service. I find them to be right on. The food is presented well and is worth the trip. You are for sure paying for that special little treatment. Do you have any set specials for the people that maybe don't have $100 bucks to drop to walk in the place? And is your distributors local or shipped in?
