Had a wonderful time yesterday at JB Hooks. The New Orleans shrimp was absolutely wonderful. Nicely spiced and flavorful. Soaking the rolls in the cajun sauce was an un-expected treat. Had a wonderful assortment of appetizers including fresh chips covered in bacon & blue cheese, portobello mushrooms, sliders, and grouper fingers. All were so tasty and half price including cocktails.... More

Always excellent and our favorite fine dining restaurant at the lake since 2001. The Walleye Pikes is my favorite. Rick is an awesome waiter.

My wife and I just enjoyed another great dinner at Hooks. Steak & shrimp on my end and Red Snapper for her - nicely prepared and presented. Appetizer was the Bam Bam shrimp topped off by cheesecake at the end. Jake was our server and provided tremendous service and knowledge of the menu. You can't go wrong eating at Hooks!... More

Our server, Kelly was terrific. We told her we were there for Happy Hour and she immediately brought us the special menu and took our drink order. The food was very good and I especially recommend the Grouper Fingers.

So Dinner...Our friend had... More
