Best food I had In SL area

After some time on the water a group of us stopped here for dinner and drinks. Being a boat access restaurant I expected a bar on the water with simple bar food. Drinks were good, the view was good and the food was good. We started with some Pow Pow Shrimp and Cheese Curds. The Shrimp went over... read more

I enjoyed the food very much. The menu was easy and offered me food that I didn't have to alter to suit my taste. (I don't like cheese.) The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. When the wind picked up during a lunch that we were having, they worked very hard to make sure that the guests were taken... More

We were warned about the prices however we didn't expect to be seated in shaded indoor/outdoor seating with 95 degree heat and then told we couldn't have water unless we bought bottled water. (Aren't there laws agains that?). Our server was great and warned us about the $2.50 water and told us to get lemonade as she could serve us... More

Great food at lunchtime visit again. Yes it is not cheap but the view is worth it for special occasions. We visited the week prior to Labor Day weekend and it was not very busy. The service was good. Teas were replentished several times and the food was excellent. We were not disappointed.

It was a great place for drinks...the atmosphere is wonderful. It wasn't busy at all and the service wasn't the best.

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.
