We didn't expect this to be so good

Nobody told us about this place and we just went here because we were staying at Bridges Bay and were tired and didn't want to drive anywhere. It was actually one of the better meals we had on our trip! Very tasty.

Try the shrimp & asparagus tortellini, it was fantastic - as was the view. Three young girls at the hostess desk, they needed someone with more maturity and communication skills. They told us to sit wherever we'd like. ... after 15 minutes we hadn't been waited on. We returned to the hostess and were told there were only certain areas... More

Went after a long day. Got seated right away. Sat for several minutes without service. Learned that you can't get water without purchasing it in a bottle even with meal and drinks. Ordered drinks did not arrive until after we got our food which took quite a while. Food was very good.

Come early or call ahead for a reservation as this place gets very busy. We waited 1 1/2 hours for a table. It was worth it though because by the time we sat down the sun was going down adn they start lighting the tiki torches and firepits. The food was good but is very spendy. You can walk down... More

We were in Okoboji for almost 14 days and pretty much ate at every restaurant. Bracco by far was the best. I mentioned service at other restaurants and Brittney was the absolute best server. The place was busy. The food was excellent and restaurant was clean. The ladies who were hostessing were friendly and accommodating.

My family has enjoyed this restaurant so often, that I truly couldn't even guess how many times we've been here. The view is spectacular! The atmosphere is always an escape. The management and staff work very hard to take care of you. The prices are much less than some other resorts we've been too. If you ever get a chance,... More

I love eating here but couldn't believe they charged $7.50 for a kid's meal with tiny portions plus $3.00 for a kid's soda. We didn't realize the drink wasn't included until we got the check. I can understand raising prices a bit during the busy summer months but I thought that was over the top. They also won't give you... More

We had 10 of us and the atmosphere and food were great! We had an excellent waiter! The food was excellent and the waiter made sure everything was good. He refilled our soda when requested. I would definitely recommend this place. We had birthday guests and he gave them ice cream with chocolate topping at no charge.

Looking to kick back and enjoy a bite of food and a cool cocktail, all while taking in the beautiful views of Lake Okoboji? Bracco's is your place! Park your boat at the docks (or, you can drive there as well) and climb the steps to their fun patio areas. Varied menu includes great sandwiches/burgers, fish tacos, excellent salads and... More

The last time we had come to the restaurant, since they no longer provided tap water and as the service was so bad, we had decided that we wouldn't be back. This year we decided to give them another chance. We got to the restaurant a little early for lunch. There were about 2 wait staff to every table. They... More
