Bob's in Arnold's Park and Le Mars are both great places to eat for a quick meal well prepared with an exceptional staff. Try 4 Brother's also!

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.

We had a Bob's dog. It was very good. Server's were friendly. Beautiful evening to sit by the lake. Not really anything special about the restaurant. But, it was clean and I would go back again.

A very busy eatery because the food is so good and the service is so friendly and efficient. There may be a line when you go but it moves very quickly. It sits up on a small hill overlooking the lake and the concert space....More

If you like good old fashioned loose meat sandwiches or an awesome hot dog....Bob's is it! No trip to the lakes is complete without a trip to Bob's. The loose meat sandwiches are awesome, as are the fries & hot dogs.
