Surprise, wonderful food and appetizer

Had great selection of "unusual" wonderful choices. Our appetizer was delicious, I was hesitant to try but OMG it was great, peaches with marscapone (?) cheese wrapped in wonton and wrapped in bacon!! Husband had fried spaghetti w/sausage and meatballs with spaghetti sauce, he loved it. Our... read more

First of all this is not a chain or even trying to appeal to an updated restaurant "look," but wow, what a great restaurant. We had special requests and they did a phenomenal job accommodating us! GREAT food. Great service and the food was out of this world good. Enjoy a lake restaurant that is quiet, quaint, and quality!

I have never in my entire life had service like I did here. We were there for over 2 hours and seen our waitress maybe a total of 3 times. The owners wife even came over and never even said sorry!! The table next to us waited so long they got up and left. There were tables that had been... More

Kazarelli's is easily the best restaurant in the Okoboji/Iowa Great Lakes area. You can go there for the gourmet meals served by an excellent chef, or simply for great bar food. Examples: 1) Gourmet? Last visit we tried Hawaiian Hebi (spearfish) in a wonderful cream sauce, topped with pear salsa on a bed of forbidden rice. Easily the best meal... More

Kazarelli's is one of the best little restaurants in Okoboji. It is located off highway 86 in Wahmpeton. It is a favorite for fresh seafood, (usually flown in), steaks, and pasta. It is only open for dinner beginning at 5. Reservations recommended . Almost everything is made from scratch, so be prepared to enjoy a leisurely dining experience!

Fathers Day brunch was awesome. Delicious sauce on the brisket. Love the pasta here. Came back for dinner later in the week, very crowded on weekends so plan to go during the week if possible

EVERYTHING went wrong. While it didn't appear there were many people waiting for tables, it took forever to get seated. Our waitress was quite prompt and took our order; however nearly an hour later, we had no food. She kept going back to check, over and over again, but apparently the kitchen had gone on break or something. When we... More

We were among the first to make a reservation well in advance for Valentine's Day dinner. When we arrived we were told neither the main dining area or the nice dining area east of the bar would be available for seating. The main dining area was only half full, the other dining area had one group of four and every... More

My husband and I heard several good things about Kazarelli's and decided to give it a try - never again! We were not seated until 30 minutes after our reservation time and the hostess was not the friendliest person we'd ever encountered. She constantly left the front door leaving us and many other guests standing in line wondering if we... More
