I'm going to be honest, this wasn't the best food we had on vacation. It was O.K. but the view, the grounds and the weather were perfect. I guess you pay for the ambiance. My steak and my friends was very dry and it took quite a while to get our server to the table though she was very friendly.... More

Ate here twice during a recent visit. The lovely lake view from the outdoor terrace is beyond compare, and the place has a nice, casual vibe. The service was attentive without being overbearing. We enjoyed the flatbread with mushrooms, gorgonzola and red peppers, and the charred carrot hummus appetizers. The Bibb Salad (berries, greens pistachios, chevre), to which you can... More

Having lunch at the Hawkeyes Bar& Grill is always a great choice. It has a very relaxing atmosphere which is located in the lower level of the Otesaga Hotel.The view is amazing. The food is always delicious. The staff is friendly and service is outstanding.

Overlooking the lake on a beautiful summer day , it does not get any better. I suggest reservations ahead of time but after a brief wait can be seated easily. The menu varies s bit at night and I would avoid the salad entrees but the fish and chips burger and tacos are winners. Have an iced tea or better... More

Wonderful view, great service, and relaxing atmosphere ... This is located in the Otesaga Hotels lower level... Great view of the lake in this historic resort... Just a short walk from the Hall of Fame... We will be back and will probably book a overnight there... Make sure to call and make a reservation for seating...

On arriving in town we immediately walked to the hotel to make a reservation for the grill's outdoor seating which overlooks Lake Otesaga. Beautiful setting. My wife had the pan seared snapper and I the ancho-honey glazed salmon both of which were excellently prepared and served. The service was outstanding with the server attentive to my wife's low salt requirements.... More

Great food. Nice servers. Love the classic resort waitress outfits and black suits on waiters. Gave the meal some charm.

So my friend and I happened to be walking by the hotel. When we seen the sign for Hawkeye we stopped in for a drink and dinner. There was probably 20 percent of the tables sat and when I went to the hostess she had to "see" about seating us because there were reservations coming in. Meal was good and... More

Very nice place for a relaxing meal. Great view of Lake Otesaga and the golf course. Burgers were great. Prime rib was a little too seasoned for my taste buds. Excellent table service. Overall good dining experience.
