What a fun spot!

Checking out the area, we stumbled upon this energetic hot spot- outdoor deck dining overlooking the lake- music, fun food and pet friendly.Good mix of couples, families and groups of all ages. Fish tacos were yummy and the cocktails taste so much better when you are out in the sun. Cheerful wait... read more

I have a summer home here and visit virtually every restaurant in the area during the summer. We've been disappointed in past years with Bracco's but went again this year only to find the same or lessor value for the money. We believe in supporting local establishments as they are good for the community, a three month window of opportunity... More

Bracco's is located right at Bridges Bay Resort on Lake Okoboji. Fantastic drinks and food! The Pow Pow Shrimp is a MUST for any sea food lover! Nachos were the best I have ever eaten! Fun atmosphere with the best scenery on the lake!

My wife, mother in law, and I visited bracco in June 2015. We pulled up to the dock in our boat, and had no problem docking. They had a very large dock area, and could accommodate quite a few boats. The resturaunt is situated in front of a large grouping of condos, and must share part of a dock, and... More

Delicious food event though there are just few options on the menu. The place is wonderful, very advisable for enjoying a supper outside. Great cocktails and salads! There is a better Bracco in Sioux Falls.Check it out!

We used to love this restaurant. The food is good and different from other area places. Then they started charging for bottled water. We find that to be ridiculous in the summer heat. Service has gone from bad to worse. We visited at the end of August and left because we were tired of waiting for a waitress. It was... More

I will echo what most others have said.....average food, overpriced, long wait. Can't believe that they get away with charging for water when they don't provide the option for plain tap water. And then $13.00 for a burger in the middle of Iowa??? Great views....but that's about it. I will support other restaurants in the Bracco family, but won't be... More

I will start with the positives.... The atmosphere and lake views are beautiful and the live music was nice. Our service was great considering how busy they were (it took about an hour to be seated, but it was Saturday night) Now for the bad.... As per all of the other reviews I find it inconceivable that I would be... More
