Stop by and have a great hamburger while sitting on the outside deck looking out at East Lake Okoboji. And if you have a boat you can motor up to their dock, tie off, and enjoy a great meal. It can get a little crowded in there but worth the inconvenience.

We ate there for lunch and went to dance and party that evening. The owner is so nice!! They had a DJ in the afternoon and a live band that evening. We were with a group with a variety of ages (30-60+) and everyone was dancing! This is the place to be!!

I travel for a living, and eat out constantly. The Ritz is simply the best anywhere when it comes to great burgers, pizza, & sandwiches! Also, the hardworking staff will make you feel right at home.

We were there on Saturday night. The only open table was by the entrance. So we sat there and waited and waited and waited some more. The Jake's Pizza was great. Very different from the usual suspects. It was about an hour by the time our order arrived. It was very entertaining watching the people come in - especially 4... More

We stopped at The Ritz at about 2:30 on a Friday afternoon. We needed a place to wait for the rest of our group to arrive to town for a 3-day reunion event. We choose to sit outside in order to have a view of the water. The outdoor area was semi-crowded, but we scored a great table with a... More

Service is generally terrible here. Come for the great lake view, fun atmosphere, and strong fishbowls!

After more than an hour waiting, we walked out because our order was just ready to be processed. We talked to one employee who said this this is a "bar and... More
