Food was good but waitress was a bit of a grump. She acted like it was a real chore to wait on us. The view was gorgeous so we overlooked her attitude. Won't return because of her.

The breakfasts here are the best! My favorite, the Sea & Anchor, is enough for 2. Hashbrowns with cheese and onions are an Okoboji thing plus the bloody Mary's are wonderful.

The people were really nice and the service adequate. I think almost everything is deep fried except for the salad. I had the taco salad and it was so-so. My dinner companions all had sandwiches with large rolls. I'd definitely choose another place to dine...More

The sandwiches were fairly average and the servers seemed a bit overwhelmed even though the place was not very busy.

We recently stayed in the Okoboji area on a business trip and decided to give the Dry Dock a try. Great food, awesome service and a fabulous view of the lake in the outside seating area. We will definitely return! Highly recommend.

One our our family's regular stops when at Okoboji, Great bar type food at very reasonable prices. Dry Dock sits right on Okoboji and you can come by boat.
