“Nice view but very expensive; casual eatery at a fine dining price.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

The bride and I decided to have lunch on the water. While heading to another restaurant, we stumbled into Bracco's. Most tables are on the water on what once was a working dock . Unlike the last reviewer, our server was cheerful and very attentive. The big drawback was the price for an otherwise average lunch. We ordered two beers, a Pina Colada, a couple of fish sandwiches and a bowl of steamers. Bill with tip came to $95!!! I realize the prices were on the menu but quite frankly I expected something special with the price we paid. Very expensive for an average meal that could have been gotten anywhere on the strip for $50-60. What can I say. You win some and you lose some.

“Nice location with lousy overpriced food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2011

Went for lunch on a beautiful sunny day. We sat outside right on the canal with a beautiful view. There was a singer playing a guitar that was awesome. As far as the service and the food they were both terrible. The clam chowder and seafood bisque contained very little seafood. The crab cakes were terrible and the fish and chips was greasy and mushy. The waitress just seemed was in a daze and confused with very slow service. A nice place to go for a drink but not to eat.
