    Food was excellent, as always, however it's hard to hear the music, which we like because there is a live band playing outside now - on a lower level.All in all enjoyed your place immensely! It's one of our vacation must do's!

    My wife ordered the filet M Rare with Demi-Glace and I had the N.Y. Strip Rare with Truffle Butter and both were cooked to perfection. They had excellent flavor also. The twice baked potato was amazing as well.

    Prime Boji is located in the premier location on West Lake Okoboji. It follows a number of fine restaurants that have held this location and I hope they can stay. We ate early, 5:15 and our waitstaff was attentive and not pushy. Sometimes early seatings are moved along to make room for the primary seatings before sunset. We had a well timed excellent meal. They have an impressive steak selection as well as a variety of seafood offerings. We started with the crab cake appetizer and split a Caesar salad. My wife had the scallops with corn and asparagus and they were cooked to perfection. I had the lamb chops and they were beautifully seasoned and cooked just the rare side of medium rare! We didn’t have dessert. When we left it was filling up and I hope that they become a long time staple of the Iowa Great Lakes. One more thing, the martinis were perfect!!

    Fourth of July weekend on the ‘Boj. Fish was prepared flawlessly and service staff inviting and efficient. Just looking at it online, may be tempted to write it off as an overpriced tourist trap steak house. Not in the least. Creative accompaniments outside the usual Iowan comfort zone - forbidden rice, salmon roe, uni purée - make for memorable meals. Then there’s the location and people watching on the water/docks - perfecto!

    This venue has been host to a number of restaurants over the years. Boji Prime is one of the better ones. It has been our experience that "misses" at this restaurant are a combination of staffing and cooking. In our most recent experience (6/30), the staffing--especially our waitress--was excellent. However, one comes for the food. My appetizer and my wife's were both quite good. The big miss was on the steaks. My wife's was over-salted to the point of nearly inedible. My "medium rare" steak was much closer to medium-plus or medium well. It was an excellent piece of meat, nearly ruined by over-cooking. In sum, the hospitality part of the meal went well. The ingredients for the dinner were well sourced and of very good quality. However, execution of the high quality ingredients went poorly. And, after all, it is the execution that matters.

    Overall good experience. The view is amazing. Food presentation was good. Wait staff very good. My husband ordered a medium filet. It was overdone, no pink at all. Chilean Bass was excellent.

    Tasty big city menu w a lakefront view. Several large celebrating parties w kids made for a noisy room. (All hard surfaces) Couldn’t hear one another at our own table. We made a 500pm reservation in an attempt to avoid the crowd. Happy for the success. Food = fantastic. Service = excellent.

    The seabass was something I'd never experienced before! Tender, melt in your mouth, fresh flavor. My husband and daughter both had steak, sirloin and the filet mignon. Cooked per requested. Tender, well seasoned, melt in your mouth. My husband and I tried each others entrée. Perfection at its finest!! Strongly recommend for very special occassions!!
