The sandwiches are good...nothing really special, but filling and the service was adequate...The food was hot and was like normal sports bar food.

They are a nice restaurant/sports bar with good food. I like it very much, they have a good variety of food. I have been there several times and have always been happy with the food and service.

“Awesome food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

First we thought it's a Japanese restaurant, then we were guessing it should be an African place, finally we figured that Okoboji is apparently a native American name, and refers to a lake on north of Iowa. The food was great, the service was exceptional and the prices were fair. Highly recommended.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

A good beer selection and very good burgers. More of a Pub atmosphere frequented by college students. We'll return!

“Great service, Great burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

I visit Okoboji Grill every time I am in Ames. They have great service and some of the best burgers. There are several flat screens for enjoying sporting events.
