We have enjoyed dining here several times, usually at lunch because things get quite busy in the evening during the summer. Mid-afternoon is a good time to go to enjoy a more relaxed experience. Although the servers are pleasant, they are rushed at peak hours. We always sit on the deck to enjoy the view. The food is good, but... More

My family was here in early August. It was very busy so we went to the lower level to enjoy the view and relax. We were able to find a table and round up enough chairs. The bartender was very busy so we were able to locate a menu. After our order, some of our drinks arrived quickly but we... More

We had been to a Bracco before in South Dakota. I really enjoy their pineapple drinks (they come served in a pineapple). This time, however, the food was not as good as our previous experience. The views are beautiful. Lovely to look at the water while you dine. You have to walk a little way to get to the restaurant... More

We came at the slow season; end of August and so getting into places like Bracco's wasn't an issue. Love love the sunsets from this place. The food was good too; nothing fancy. I had their fish tacos and lime/coconut rice and it was very good. Fun place to hang out.

Recently visited this restaurant. We chose a couple of items from the menu for a take out since the wait was longer to be seated. Food was fresh and hot and was ready in about 20 min. Hopefully on our next visit we will be able to find a place on the river deck. Since it was a long weekend,... More

We've been going to Bracco for some time and we always enjoy it. It's nothing fancy, but a nice place to view the water and watch the sunset. I love the bronzed fish tacos.

There was some confusion about where to seat our party of 6 when we arrived. Once seated, the service was very good and the food was excellent. We all enjoyed the tropical flavors this restaurants has to offer. The setting is beautiful, especially if the weather allows you to sit on the patio overlooking east lake Okoboji.

A great waterfront patio seating experience with average food. There are actually two restaurants at the Bridges Bay Resort that sit side by side with each other. Their coconut chicken breasts with the salad greens were good, but average, as were the other 3 meals that we ordered during our three day stay. The large patio seating is very nice,... More

We've been to Braccos in Sioux Falls a number of times and have always enjoyed it, so we were excited to go to this location to try it. The location and views are great. The service however was not. Very disappointed. The service unfortunately ruined our meal. We will not be going back to this location.
