Sept. 1st this year I was at the free concert and walked over to see if the Bob Dog was what it was wrote up to be. I waited 35 minute for a 1/2 cooked hot dog I paid $3.87 for. By early Sunday morning...More

The owner was great 👍 told us all about his place and we went back for lunch the next day. It was fast food but a must in that area. Root beer float is a must also ❤️

Our family visits this small restaurant on the shore of West Lake Okoboji several times each summer. It's a good place to get very tasty sandwiches and ice cream. They have a great hot dog with meat sauce that is known far and wide. I...More

How many "Bob's Dog's" can you eat in one season - If you are a hot dog "aficionado" this is a must do - Fun setting - Excellent view of the lake - Reasonable prices

The line was long, but we enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the water and folks playing sand volleyball while we waited for our order. It's pretty standard fair but the price was right and you can't beat the location. It's a fun family stop.

Bob's is a cute little restaurant with outdoor seating right on the lake. Food is what I would consider fast food- burgers, chicken sandwiches, fries, etc, but is a step up from your typical fast food experience. Fries were battered and served fresh and hot....More
