“Good place to sit on the patio & dine with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

My college friends & I meet at Okoboji once every summer. We stop at the Dry Dock to eat & enjoy sitting on the patio watching the boats. Good food, and kind of a beach bar atmosphere.

“Can't wait to eat here again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

The food was delicious! I love when your food is so hot when it gets to you. Everything came super fast. We were with a group of 7 and the way the service was, you would think it was a table of one. Very simple food, but they perfected it!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

We waited for almost two hours for our food. The wait staff never checked on how we were doing.
