We enjoyed a late lunch (3:00 p.m.) at Okoboji Grill. We pretty much had the whole place to ourselves and the undivided attention of our server, who took good care of us. Everyone was satisfied with the food they ordered, from baked potatoes to sliders...More

Okoboji Grill fits in the Applebee's/Chili's/Benigan's casual dining genre. While it's not overly original or fine dining, I've never had a bad experience here and the food is dependably good with a good variety on the menu.

When in Iowa I always try the pork offerings. The menu here had a pork chop dinner. It melted in my mouth and the sauce was not over-whelming. Good selection of local beer. We ate at the bar and had good service.

This wasn't great, but they tried and the pasta with fresh vegetables was good in a pinch. Good selections of beer.

Staff is "homey" friendly (not extra friendly but friendly). Knowledgeable of menu. Food came quick and hot. Everything tasty and cooked to order. I'll eat here again.

We travel through Newton 1-2 times annually while driving cross-country. After a long day on the road, the Okoboji has been our "go to" spot for the last few stops. Very good food with friendly service. Full bar and good beer selection (limited wine selection)....More

The waitress was very friendly. We ordered steak dinners & the steaks were perfectly cooked a med rare, (usually I order this and receive an over cooked or too rare.) The steamed vegetables were perfect, still crisp not mushy. My husband and I really enjoyed...More
