Went for a quiet birthday dinner for my husbands birthday. Christmas decorations were beautiful. Atmosphere was very nice. Food was outstanding and our server Jessi was the greatest.

Jake was a great waiter when we had dinner after our company planning meeting that included our partners and wives. He made recommendations that were great and delicious that ended our weekend in style. He is pleasant person and real professional definitely will be back

Wanted to go when Christmas decorations were up. Jessi was an AWESOME waitress. The food was excellent as always.. Hook's is no more expensive than some of the other fine dining restaurants in town. Recommend if you're looking for a quite, special dinner or just want a great meal.

Jake was our server. He was perfect! He recommended a great wine and all the specials. He was always available for drink refills and in between courses. Hope we get him next time.

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
