My husband and I revisited the Inn after an absence of several years. We met in Okoboji and were celebrating our 30th anniversary. A two-night stay was over $300 which was a bit pricey for the accomodations. We had just entered the room and the smoke alarm went off. They were quick to send someone to fix it. There was a humidifer in our room that roared all night and the fan in the bathroom was extremely loud also. Upon check-in we were given a coupon for $20.00 off of a $40.00 purchase in the restaurant. We went into the dining room where there were two tables of people. We opted to eat in the lounge side of the restaurant where there was also only one table occupied. We waited quite awhile before anyone came over to our table as the help was standing behind the bar chatting. They brought us our drinks and again we waited for someone to come and take our food order. When our food came it was minus the bread and I requested sour cream for my potato. Some time later, I flagged down another waitperson and he brought us our bread and sour cream. After we finished our meal, no one brought us our check, so my husband went up to the bar and paid our bill. The food was good, so the following evening we returned to the restaurant for a light supper. When we walked in there were several dirty tables. We found a clean table, sat down and waited...and waited... and waited. My husband finally went up to the bar and asked if we had to come up there to order our food and beverages. The girl said she'd be right with us. In the mean time another group came in and sat at the remaining clean table. Shortly after, two couples came in, went to the bar and ordered drinks and sat down at their only choice--one of the dirty tables. Still no one came to clean the table, so one of the fellows started picking it up himself. Another group came to the door, looked in and didn't see any clean tables and left. About 45 minutes later we got our food-a burger for my husband and a salad and appetizer for me. Again, no one brought us our bill so my husband went up to the bar to pay. We were quite shocked to be handed a bill for over $80.00. We questioned our waitress and she giggled and said, "Oh sorry, that was someone else's bill." It had 2 kids meals on it in addition to adult meals. Since no one with children was in the there when we were there, it made us wonder if someone got a free meal. Again the food was good, but definitely not worth the hassle. We had also eaten at Tweeter's in Okoboji. We had our food in less than 10 minutes and it was delicious. Would definitely recommend them.
