Sooooooo true! We had a $700.00 business dinner and I saw the waiter drop a chicken nugget on the floor behind our secretary and place it back on her plate! Never returning!

We are vegetarians and there weren't a ton of options for us; we both chose a pasta dish and had them hold the chicken. The pasta was good but not great; same thing with the dessert we split (peanut butter pie).

We hit this at the lunch rush on a Saturday and were pleasantly surprised to get seated, have drinks, and have food in front of us rather quickly. The waitstaff was friendly and every part of our order was accurate. In addition, we never had to wait for a refill or flag our waitress down for a request; she checked... More

Can't find anything to complain about. Had a Kentucky Bourbon Burger which was excellent. Staff was very friendly as well.

Stopped in for lunch on a weekday. It was not very busy. We were quickly seated. Our server was very nice. My food was very good and we all enjoyed our lunch. The place was very nice. I will go back

We visited the Okoboji Bar and Grill on Sunday, May 31 for lunch. It was not very busy, we now know why, and there were 3 teenage girls chatting it up at the front desk. I don't think they really wanted to be there. We were seated and a stack of menu's was slapped down in the middle of the... More

I've only lived here about a month but I've been to Okoboji 3 times already. Bar area is really laid back and inviting, decent variety of beers, prices are more than fair and anything I've had to eat here has been delicious! I'll be back many more times!!!

I have no complaints about this place. Service was Great, Food was Great and Drinks were Great. Reminds me of a typical Sports Bar, I just wished I lived closer because I would go there often.

We were there for our son's birthday with the entire family. My Mom had just had rotator cuff tear surgery and the waitress accidently spilled ice water down her back side. Mom jumped up too quickly, image the pain...ouch! The waitress was very attentive and very apologetic, to the point she was in tears. I felt just as bad for... More

Plenty of TVs, service and food were very good. Prices were normal in my point of you. It really is a perfect bar for College or professional football. I had the Pork Tenderloin, my son and cousin had different kind of burgers. The only thing that threw me off was the parking lot looked like the place was gonna be... More
