“Hot Dog's Plain and Simple with the Best View of the Lake”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

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.
You can drive, but walking is better.
We then strolled through the Amusement Park before retiring.
This is a must see place for the Lake.
Enjoy

“You might as well order 2 taverns - one isn't enough”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

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.

“Really?”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

How long does it really take to cook a hot dog? Service by high school age kids that would rather be with their friends on the lake.

“A basic burger joint”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

Bob's specializes in burgers and dogs - it's a satellite restaurant from it's home base of the small town of LeMars. There are a few tables indoors and a few picnic tables outside - or you can take your food and eat on the grass under a tree. Except for indoors, it has a great view of West Lake Okoboji and the amusement park nearby. Inexpensive grilled to order food. Beer available for the grownups.
