It was our first time here, Johnny Grist was our server, he was amazing and answered any questions we had with no hesitation. The food was amazing and this will definitely be a place we come back to when we are in the area again.

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant . Service was great, Johnny was entertaining even though he was busy and a little under the weather, but we couldn't tell. Gave us a great selection of desserts

After a hectic day at work it felt wonderful to enter such a calming atmosphere and sit down and look out over beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. What an awesome view and even more awesome was the food. The service was great and the waiter Jake was very accommodating with all the little things we requested. All the staff made... More

Our waiter, Jake did a great job serving us. My grouper was delicious, also had a great blended wine that Jake recommended. Food was prepared & presented well. The atmosphere at JB is great & the view of the lake is outstanding. I try to eat at JB's every time I go to the lake and have never been disappointed

Our server, Phelan, was suburb. After taking our order we chatted a bit and my husband reminisced about others times he had visited. Our prime rib sandwiches were delicious and our view overlooking the lake only added to our enjoyment. We look forward to our next visit.

This place has a beautiful view of the lake and of the sunset if seated by the windows. Food is excellent, but a bit pricey. It has a very nice atmosphere.

Thank Mary S
