Super fun times at the Barefoot Bar

Always a party going on and always a good time. Whenever we are on the lake we stop by with our friends at this HUGE bar. There are multiple bars set up all over so you never have to wait long for a drink. The food is nothing special but not bad if you just need a quick brat or... read more

We loved Barefoot because of the fun outdoor atmosphere. Go here for drinks with friends and enjoy the fun setting right on the lake!

The best place to tie up the boat and grab a drink and some bar food on a summer day on the lake. Busy bar right on the water with a band playing and people enjoying the day. Drinks were cold and the nacho's cheesy and both hit the spot. Fun place, you got to go.

Make sure you bring your kids swim suit! Kids from about 5 to 12 enjoy the slide into the lake. Kids 5 and under will enjoy the park area. Staff was friendly. Food is okay not great but ok. Drinks are good, love the cups!

Though many people recommended this place, I wish we'd never gone. When we drove the boat up to the dock and walked in, we got rude looks from all of the workers. We sat down and waited 10 minutes until someone finally helped us. The food was absolutely horrid. You have walk across the place to a little shack to... More

Maybe 10 years ago I would have liked it more but it was packed and we couldn't sit anywhere. Rude people and even one of the waitresses. Not impressed.

Great spot! Who would think you could have palm trees in Iowa. They serve cocktail is funny cups. Have places for kids to play. Great gift shop! Only change I would suggest is offer food with table service. Currently you have to walk to a side snack bar to order food.

Great spot for casual food, drink and outdoor dining right on the lake. The atmosphere is a little bit of the Caribbean in Iowa. With lots of outdoor seating on the lake, the food is good and the drinks are cold. Great place to take the family (we took 17 people one time) as well as a great place for... More
