Expensive!

I love the atmosphere at the Okoboji Bracco's but that is what you are paying for. Burgers & fries for my kids were $14/each. They charge for water as well. $100 bill for burgers, nachos and a kid's meal left a sour taste in our mouths.

Service was wonderful after they realized we existed. The cheese curds were delicious. The risotto was awesome! If you order a steak make sure you ask what their temps are because I ordered a medium rare steak and received a well done steak. Second round I cancelled and it was brought out by the general manager who proceeded to argue... More

Great menu. Had to pay for water to drink which is a little unusual, but the menu was really good and the food didn't disappoint! We really enjoyed eating lakefront at this restaurant!

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
