Barefoot Bar in Spirit Lake

Bar - Lakeside

The Barefoot Bar is a lakeside sunny day bar located at Parks Marina. It contains several bars in grass huts and a stage for live music. The entire area is decorated with large palm trees and gives the feel of being in a tropical area while on the lake. There are many docks to tie up your boat at while you stop by the bar, and the area contains a large number of tables so there is always plenty of seating.

Was there last week with family celebrating "Christmas in July". The atmosphere is great, loved all the signage. Some of us went more than once including myself. After being there in the heat of the afternoon on Saturday I asked for an ice water from the bar by the Pee Pee in the Sky and was handed a warm bottle of water. I declined it saying that it was warm. The bartender put it in the ice that he was using to serve drinks. Then continued to serve other patrons. I asked again for ice water. After a few minutes the bartender finally gave me a cup of ice and the bottle of water that he had placed in the ice. Plus a $5.00 charge for the water. Seriously???? I can understand the prices for alcohol, and I had a few drinks, but $5.00 for a bottle of water?????

Atmosphere is pretty cool. BUT, management is terrible, service is horrible, and the prices are ridiculous. Cons definitely outweigh the pros.

I went here for super with my fiancĂ© and the drink service was horrible and the food we got was horrible. I could have reported them for having serves me meat that was only 80 degreese. Literally it‘s not that hard to put pulled pork in a crockpot to keep it warm. I would have rather stayed at my campsite. And when we sat down we sat right in-between two bars. Nobody waited on us until we where ready to leave. I am not one to write bad reviews, but this place is a joke. When my fiancĂ© finally got his 7&7 there was barely any booze in it. If the girls aren‘t going to be serving the coustomers they shouldn‘t be there. It‘s not that hard to start a conversation with the coustomer. Who ever is in charge ther should really reconsider who they hire because having 2 out of 15 girls actually doing something is rediculouse and looks bad. Especially when your coustomers are not being waited on.
