JB Hook’s is known for their fine evening dining for that special occasion, but what about lunch? My wife and I gave it a shot couple weeks ago and we really enjoyed our experience. Its a little more pricey then the average lunch, but the view and food make it worth it.
Lunch is served in the more casual lower dinning room or on the outdoor covered deck. We chose the deck since the weather was perfect. We arrived close to noon on a Saturday and the place was not very crowded at all (keep in mind this is still off-season). Reservations are not accepted for lunch but I don’t think you will have any problem sitting right down. The panoramic view of the Lake of the Ozarks from the deck is nothing short of spectacular. Here is a looks at JB Hook’s from the water. As you can see, the restaurant sits high above Lake of the Ozarks, giving you an unobstructed view of the Lake.
The lunch menu is different than the dinner menu (a good thing for your wallet), but still offers a wide variety of selections such as steak, seafood, and chicken. We both chose the crunchy grouper encrusted with honey frosted flakes, and it was excellent. The breading was not overdone so you could still taste the mild grouper. Crispy homemade chips rounded out this satisfying lunch.
JB Hook’s offers a perfect spot for a nice lunch which includes a spectacular view, excellent service, and grouper at its best. We plan to return to try other lunch options and hopefully make it for a dinner service sometime this summer.
