We live near the Iowa Great Lakes and Tweeter's has always been one of our go-to restaurants. They offer a great variety in a very nice bar/grill atmosphere. The prices are very reasonable. We have been going to Tweeters for 20 years and their food has always remained the same. You know you what you are going to get!

We heard wonderful things about this restaurant while the 6 of us were waiting for our table, but I have to say, all of us were not impressed. The service was slow and our waitress was like a zombie(no charm at all.) We were all disappointed with our cold and lack-luster meals. We will not be returning.

Service was ok, slow and they couldn't keep up with our group. Food came out, not really anything wrong with it but it was not something I would have to come back for. Overall good place.

Good variety of food. Chicken sandwich was yummy. Tweeter burger with peanut butter is unique. Slow service which is typical of the lakes. Lots of tvs.

very disappointed in Tweeters. We have walked through their door many times over the years and have always had a fine experience. But last night was just terrible. I had the steak and shrimp combo. But the steak was not anywhere close to medium rare and the shrimp were way over cooked. My wife's chicken skillet was chicken of questionable... More

My BBQ ribs were delicious. They fell off the bone with a little nudge from my fork. The in house made thousand island dressing on my salad was also very good.

Clean and Friendly. Great AC on a hot day. Plenty of parking. Butter Chardonnary is on the wine list was a plus! Kitchen is open late. Server was very attentive. Food arrived hot and delicious.

We eat at Tweeter's regularly and always enjoy our experience! Worth a try if you visit Okoboji! My favorites are the grilled chicken salad or Oscar melt!

Just not what it used to be.Long wait to be seated, and then for food.We arrived at 6:00, was told about 15 minutes, got seated at about 7: 15 and were served by 7:50. This was somewhat understandable for a group of 14 on a Saturday nite. Food was OK once served.
