Okoboji had notoriously slow service, but we figured for a mid-Sunday dinner they'd be able to get us in and out in a reasonable amount of time. When we got there, there were more employees than patrons as they prepared for the dinner crowd. In...More

We have been patrons of Okoboji Grill in Ames for the past 20 years. At our most recent visit, we found the menu has been downsized, which in many cases is a positive, as too many options tend to lead to a reduction in the...More
