This is where the locals go. It's homey and comfortable. Food is great, especially the Oscars Oscar.

This is one of my favorite places at the lakes but it is very inconsistent. Summers seem to be worse as when the kitchen gets busy the quality seems to suffer. Specials in the winter also tend to be more interesting. Good place for business lunches

Some of the worst service ever. Waitress Brooke was very rude, curt and disrespectful to our group. Burger came out with a spider on it and when it returned it was cold and overcooked. Her attitude needs adjusted if she is going to deal with people. Owner wasn't much better.

Drove there for dinner. Service was good. Food was the worst I have ever had in the Lakes. Two got sick. Never going back. Should have left it burn.

We joined friends at Tweeters on a cold Saturday in December. I had the pork tenderloin sandwich which is always my go to when back in Iowa and it was very good. My wife had the Patty Melt which she loved. Good selection of beer on tap.

I would have to try this Restaurant again, before giving it a fair review, because it was a public holiday and all the staff were tired and ready to go home. The Pork fillet sandwich was adequate, albeit overdone in the deep fryer, so it was a little tough and burnt The wine was excellent and after going through a... More

Recommended by the desk clerk at The Inn of Okoboji. Large menu. I chose the grilled salmon special of the evening. It was delicious; accompanying side salad and veggies were okay. View is not spectacular; only a little glimpse of Lake Okoboji.

We live near the Iowa Great Lakes and Tweeter's has always been one of our go-to restaurants. They offer a great variety in a very nice bar/grill atmosphere. The prices are very reasonable. We have been going to Tweeters for 20 years and their food has always remained the same. You know you what you are going to get!
