Great food. Excellent service. We had a party of 25 and they were ready for us when we walked in. The waitress and a couple helpers were the best I‘ve seen. Lots of different things on the menu so everyone in our group found their favorites. The food was very good, the portions were generous and the prices were reasonable. Although the decor is a bit dated there are many interesting things to catch your eye. We are planning to come back next week when we vacation at West Lake. See you then.

I ate at the Outrigger over the Memorial Day holiday. It was packed and there was overflow into the new party room which looked awesome. I had the prime rib and I must say, it was the BEST I have ever had. The entire meal was great. The cook is awesome and the wait staff was tremendous. The owner did an outstanding job of taking care of her guests. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

I had the filet mignon and twice baked potatoes. They were excellent! The staff was courteous. The owner went out of her way to make sure we were happy with our meal.

The prime rib and garlic mashed potatoes were to die for. The owner is a sweet heart, and the staff was very courteous.

I recently visited Okoboji and had to have supper at the Outrigger again! OMG...the place is AMAZING. They have remodeled and even added a fabulous party room. The owner is a gem and the food and service was perfect.

We‘ve eaten here many times during the last 7 years and have NEVER had bad food! It‘s always one of our stops when we‘re in the area. The service and food has only gotten better since the new owner took over! Try the coconut shrimp or the walleye.

The Outrigger is the same great place to eat that it has always been. You wouldn‘t even know that a new owner took it over. I highly recommend.

That comment from May is bogus! The new lady has done an amazing job! Food is great and you won‘t find better staff or service. Prices are competitive with the other restaurants. You won‘t leave here hungry that‘s for sure!

Went here late season last year, wasn‘t really impressed. The prices were fairly resonable for the area but the food we got for it I thought was sub-par. Just not the way it used to be at The Outrigger. One thing I will say that hasn‘t changed was the friendly and prompt service.

The food is excellent. Try the baseball steak. The owner makes you feel like family when you are there. It doesnt get any better

I had the Outrigger burger. It was big but great. I had great service also. The prices were average. Nice little old fashioned restruant.

A great place to meet good friends for awesome food. A definite place to visit on a regular basis. The owner and staff are the best.

Because we had a limited time for dinner, we asked if we would be served in less than an hour (the place was full). Our waitress assured us we would. We ordered fantastic beef oscars and we‘re served in less than 15 minutes. A friendly staff took care of our every need. We will definitely be back here to eat.

The Outrigger has become our favorite place to eat. The food has always been good, but since Tim made additions to the menu it is awesome! You can get a burger and chicken or Prime Rib and Steak! Great selection and we‘ve never had a bad meal. Keep up the good work.
