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

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 staff.

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

We enjoy dining here on a weekend when the lakes are very busy! We were able to have a table very quickly and the server was very friendly ! The food was awesome and we would recommend this place to anyone whom enjoys dining outdoors

Went to Bracco for lunch after a morning of diving. I am always a little skeptical ordering seafood while landlocked, but the fish tacos were pretty tasty. Service was pretty good as well. Atmosphere being lakeside was also enjoyable. Will definitely return when I am next in the area.

We had eaten here 3 times last summer, all good. We were a bit skeptical after seeing the latest reviews. However, we had lunch here yesterday, sat right along the water on the patio, perfect atmosphere, and temps. We ordered 4 meals and 4 iced tea & sodas, the drinks were $2.50 a piece but unlimited and the waiter could... More

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.
