Our families' favorite meal is to pick up a sausage pizza here, by boat...they cut the pie in square serving pieces...each square has it's own meatball sized sausage! It's delicious! Great fun deck-right on E Okoboji Lake.

Had to have the 'famous' Lue Burger. Just ok. Seasoned with Lawry's Seasoning salt. Big burger, was served hot off the grill. Huge pile of lightly battered french fries for $10.50. Was not a stand out burger, tasted ok. Was looking for the wow factor.

Great place right on the water. We had a table on the deck and our waitress was fantastic. Ordered the Garbage Pizza which was fantastic. If you are hungry this is the place to go.

I was at the Ritz for dinner with a bachelorette party recently and we had an awful experience. First of all I have to say, it was Saturday evening over dinner and it was very busy. That being said, the way we were treated by...More

We expected it to be busy during the evening, but not as slow as it was. We ordered a pizza and two other entrees, we received our appetizer promptly and then waited over an hour to receive the other meals. And then the meals all...More
