We were visiting some friends in Okoboji, so we decided to grab lunch at the Ritz on Sunday. We chose a spot on the deck overlooking the water and boats. The place was busy, but the waiters were staying on top of their tables. Our waiter dropped off menus and took our drink order. By the time he returned with... More

A friendly server but really average food (pizza with a greasy base and overload of cheese, and stale nachos) and a slightly sticky feel to the whole place. We were there with kids, this had more of a college bar feel (and smell!), but probably great for drinking and hanging out.

This was the only bad experience we had at Okoboji. We were there on a Wednesday night, and there was this man yelling in a mic that went over the whole place, encouraging all to play games, sing and the like. It was really annoying and headache inducing. The burgers are a special. It took 50 minutes to get our... More

We took 4 teenagers to eat at this restaurant....everyone found something they liked. One kid was gluten free so it was nice to see gluten free options for her on the menu. The pizza and hamburgars were awesome. We also enjoyed the make your own bloody mary bar! Great atmosphere as you can sit outside. Service was a little slow... More

You have to have a fish bowl drink. They are GREAT!! The food is very good too, and the staff there are fabulous. It was busy but the employees were helpful and friendly. I would suggest that you stop and check them out!

We had a party of ten, looking forward to having a nice casual dinner on the lake. Getting a table was pretty easy and the server was pretty prompt with taking our order, what wasn't prompt was the arrival of our food. After a wait of one hour and forty minutes, I approached our server and simply told her that... More

I guess when a place advertises they have the best pizza, get the pizza and nothing else. We got what was advertised as one of Iowa's top 10 burgers. Bleh, mine was dry and there seemed to be more everything except burger. The fries were good, they were the battered fried. The view is great as you are right on... More

We were two families that stopped for a lake side meal during a day of boating. We have been to the Ritz multiple times over the last 15 years. Our pizza was terrific as usual, but we had the worst service we have ever had. I was making excuses for most of our meal thinking that the issues of slow... More
