The Gardens on the lakeside level of The Central Emporium started out as boat storage in the 1920’s and has gone through many transformations. Relax and enjoy lunch or dinner in the comfortable, air conditioned bar or head outside to our expansive deck to soak in the sights and sounds of West Lake Okoboji at its best. The Gardens is a family friendly restaurant and the #1 spot to enjoy the breathtaking West Lake sunsets. After dinner stay late and dance the night away with our LIVE entertainment. Car and boat parking plentiful.
