Ringsted native Dustyn Wikert and business partner Schuyler Johnson, owners of Mother Nature’s Restaurant in Estherville as well as Nautical Bar & Grill and Portside Pizza Pub in Okoboji are featuring Italian beef sandwiches, gyros, burgers and fresh cut French fries in a new Arnolds Park Amusement Park restaurant to be known as Boardwalk.

“We are starting renovation shortly and hope to have the store open in the spring before the Park opens,” Wikert said.

The location in the former Godfather’s building in Queen’s Court at the Park will have a garage door that opens to the Lake, over a dozen televisions and a casual atmosphere for families to take a break from the Park or the boat to enjoy a meal overlooking the Lake.

“We are so excited to be part of the mix down at the Park…it’s a terrific time to be a part of the excitement,” Wikert said.

Wikert started out in his family business at the bar and grille in Ringsted and moved on to Mother Nature’s before including the Lakes area in his culinary plans.
