The first clue was when we asked for water and was told only bottled water was available. The wings were greasy and pricey. Great views, but you can get these views elsewhere with much better food and FREE water. Won't be back.

Great open air bar and restaurant on east Okoboji lake. Service good. Food really lacking. Over priced for cafe style food. Nice atmosphere overlooking east lake.....

Our party of 12 (not including a toddler and a baby) were there mid June on a Wednesday night. Our waiter, Owen, was top notch and attentive to all our needs. He did what he could with what he had. Our food was a variety of menu items - mostly small portioned and quite over priced for this location. We,... More

Braccos has the best fish tacos I have ever eaten. The coconut-flavored rice is amazing and compliments the entire entree perfectly. However, for the price tag, they are completely not worth it. $15 for a tiny fillet and three small flour tortillas. No side or extras. The larger portion of rice helps to settle an appetite but there really is... More

The food is generally good. The views of the lake and atmosphere are good. The prices are high. The service here is generally poor. There are many better options in Okoboji.

Early evening on a weeknight - not a lot happening. Reasonable prices, lots of construction going and workers were smoking just below the dining deck. Yuck! It was convenient to have a restaurant at the hotel.

We have eaten at Bracco's many times over the years. Great atmosphere. This year we were surprised how much the prices had gone up. There is a charge for every add on and you can't even get a glass of water with out paying for it. The food continues to be good, but the pricing does not align.

We have lived in Iowa most of our lives. We now live in Arizona. This restaurant is the only restaurant we have encountered in the entire state of Iowa where we have not been able to get complimentary water upon request. Even in Arizona, where water is a precious commodity, we are able to get free water. With Bracco being... More
