We ate here after being absent from Lakes area for more than a year. Food and service were good as expected. One minor complaint - Minervas was featuring its Oktoberfest menu which is identical to the menu in its Sioux City location. A week ago...MoreWe apologize for our mistake, BikeHawk! Thank you for bringing this to our attention, as we strive for consistency throughout our stores - we hope you will be back in again soon to enjoy another meal with us!

West O Beer

Reviewed By dennisp859 - Geraldton, Australia

Visited this Brewery on advise of friends.
Quite new to Milford this business is just off the main road.
Comprising seating outside and a bar area inside they sell various craft beers.
All on tap this is a fun place to visit.
They also sell thermos like containers in which you can fill with your favourite drop which you can take away.
Refills are available and this is a novel way to take home your favourite drop.
Well worth a visit when in the area

Wyman's Spudnuts

Reviewed By RichardSkorey - Sioux City, Iowa

Been coming to Spudnutz for a few years since they opened. Simply the finest donuts I've found in the 200 mile radius I travel from Sioux City. Brent Wyman is deservedly proud of the bakery and personally bakes, decorates the place beautifully and greets his customers. Sticks to one genre of baking and does it to perfection.
Hint: get here early, sells fast!!

Nutty Bar Stand

The Nutty Bar Stand has been an Arnolds Park icon since 1945. We have been satisfying the Okoboji area's sweet tooth for generations. Our commitment to serving the highest quality products at the lowest price make us a family favorite. Come have a treat with us and let us be part of your summer tradition!

Reviewed By VivaMexicoLiz - Mexico City, Mexico

This is an Iowa Great Lakes classic, enjoyed by so many over the years and being introduced young ice cream fans today. Every time we stop by for a Nutty Bar I see multi-generational groups of families enjoying this hand-made Arnolds Park treat. There's no table service-- just walk inside and give them your order at the counter.
They offer other treats as well, but we always get the Nutty Bars. They're delicious-- and it's fun to sit at one of their outside tables, people watching and enjoying the sights and sounds of the amusement park. If you time it right, you'll be able to watch happy tourists getting on or off the Queen II.

The beer costs what the same as the temperature of the lake. That area is called Zeke's Place after Zeke Wilson. The food is good the bands are good.

Taco House

Reviewed By Hedgeclipperz - Omaha, NE

Now...I am not a fan, but our kids LOVE this place. It has been here FOREVER. People buy their food to stock their freezers in the off season. Be prepared to wait in line a long time for your food. Know they do not have a liquor license. Many people will stop for food and then take it over to WestO Brewery to eat there.

O'Farrell Sisters

Reviewed By R H - Show Low, Arizona

It harkens back to decades past. And thats about when its seems to have been built. But thats ok as the food will make you want to return. Sit inside if you can for the full dinner effect. Always seem to be busy, so breakfast give some leeway on seating time. Friendly local help with a resort town flare.
