    We had a lovely evening with a beautiful sunset. The food was very good but appetizers pricey. The quality of our dinners was superb. I’m happy to say this will be our special place for celebrating going forward.

    We love JB Hooks. It is one of our favorite. Wonderful atmosphere, incredible food and great service. We had Rick as our waiter and he is excellent. We never feel rushed and enjoy the complimentary crackers and cream cheese, it is delicious. Highly recommend.

    We have been customers for years. We can’t believe they would serve food as bad as it’s been the last few times we have been there. We never complain, but are in hopes they fix the problem, because we enjoy eating there

    The food was great except for the Maui Maui was extremely dry. It was the special for 19Feb and it was like it was made up in preparation of more orders and sat under a warming light and dried out. Thank you

    We had an awesome Valentine's Day dinner at JB Hooks. My husband had his favorite Mahi Woodrow and wedge salad. As usual, he raved about his salad and meal. I tried the special which was sea bass. It was wonderful! We were greeted with a complimentary rose and ended the splendid meal with complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Just the best!

    JB Hooks is the highest priced restaurant that I’ve been to at the lake. Value for the money? I settled for some Italian dish with steak in it because I didn’t want to spend $55 for prime rib. Guess I don’t have the money anymore to afford places like this.

    Have eaten at JBHooks several times one of our favorite restaurants. Our dinner last Wednesday was very disappointing. Sad when the best part of your meal is the salad, Lobster was tough and stringy not worth the price. Service was excellent but will be a long time before we visit JB Hooks.

    Has a great view in daytime. I feel you get abundance of food for the price you pay. We ended up with really hard bread and they took care of it right away so don't be afraid to let them know there is something wrong.

    Once again the chef delivered perfection for my king's birthday. Amazing everything. JB Hooks has become his annual request and this queen lives to assure his dreams are fulfilled. Olivia our server met and anticipated his every need from the kiddie cocktail to splendid birthday dessert. The ambience and lake view are calming and dinner becomes an experience not just a meal. Truly decadent artwork you eat.

    We were so looking forward to this meal, as the reviews sang its praises. Unfortunately, we did not have a terrific meal. The food is expensive for what you get. I ordered the Neptune steak. The steak itself was good, but the lobster and shrimp topping was a joke. Mostly sauce and less than the equivalent of one shrimp with shredded bits of lobster? Not worth $70! One of our dinner mates ordered a chicken dish and the chicken was covered in sauce and too dry to eat. Again, over priced food. Our server was fantastic. She was personable and took great care of us. We are adding this restaurant to our do not recommend list. Maybe we just ordered the wrong dish?
