The loose meats are awesome and the shakes were great! Love the view and being able to sit outside by the lake and not pay thru the nose for it ;)

The Bob dog is a must. Their fries and onion rings are fantastic. Shakes are delicious. Can't wait to get home to get my Bobs fix!

Ever had a Bob's Hot Dog? If not you are in for a great treat! Then there are the Tavern's (loose meat sandwich). Hard to pick sometimes.

Just wanted a quick hot dog. Must have waited 30 minutes for 2 hot dogs and french fries. Young man who brought out the orders had a nasty attitude and slammed everyone's tray down on the table. Place is joke!

If you're looking for a hot dot or tavern at a reasonable price then Bob's is the place to go. Great location overlooking West Lake Okoboji with outdoor seating and a meal for less than $5, what's not to like?

Their hot dogs are amazing and the taverns are great to try also. Living in Des Moines, I make sure i stop by Bob's everytime I'm in Okoboji. Service can be slow when it is busy but it is worth the wait.

Such a funny name for a loose meat sandwich, a tavern. This place has them, and fried pork sandwiches, too. Hot dogs, hamburgers, and cheese balls with Ranch dressing. Yum!

We arrived just before closing and received prompt and friendly service. We had the staple diet for the area, a Hot Dog and a Beer. The "dog" was great and the Beer was icy cold. It was still 95 degrees in the shade. The view from Bob's is spectacular, and is well worth the walk through town to get there.... More

This small summer-only diner is excellent. I always get the Tavern which is an old-fashioned loose meat sandwich. Whatever spices they use are perfect - it is moist but not greasy. I've heard they have good hot dogs but I can't resist the Tavern. There is also a location in LeMars Iowa that is open year round.
