We visit Lewies as often as we can. It's our favorite stop when riding through the black hills. Hands down the best burgers and coldest beer! Nothing fancy just great food and great service

Had lunch with friends. Had a burger and fries and it was very tastey and plenty too eat. Prices are right for the amount you get. Would return and would recommend to friends

I've had better and much worse but the burger holds it's own through many that I have had. A good size burger 1/3 or 1/2 lb not sure...but with my fries, I did not leave hungry and being I have a terrific appetite, that's a good thing. Place was rather full for 2:30 in afternoon so it took a while... More

Not sure what it is about their burgers, but I stopped here twice during a trip in August and they were some of the best burgers I've ever eaten. Big, juicy, flavorful with great toppings. Just hard to beat. A fun atmosphere with a great view and outstanding food. What's not to like?

Just your average burger and fries place. Only do burgers one was, well done. That's not my taste. Service was fast and server was friendly and attentive. Wasn't very busy when we were there but it was later in the evening. Every time we drove by it looked busy. If you're looking for a burger that's better than fast food... More

We stopped for a mid-October mid-week lunch, and the crowd was small. The staff were very friendly and the burgers were very good. The setting and decor are very enjoyable.

When I think of a mountain town Bar and Grill this is what I pictured in my mind. The staff was good, the amount of food we're good. And the food was good. Nothing fancy but just an all-around excellent bacon cheeseburger and fries

Fun restaurant off the road out of Lead,SD. Beautiful flowers decorate the deck outside of the restaurant. We ate lunch on the deck on a beautiful sunny day in September. The staff was very friendly, explained the menu choices, hamburgers are their specialty which my husband ordered & enjoyed. I asked about the rubin sandwich, she said she enjoyed it,... More

We stopped for a drink and a burger on our way back to where we were staying in Lead. Day was so nice, we sat outside and people watched! LOTS of atvs going by and stopping in for a drink/snack. Burgers are GREAT. Got to meet Lewie.......not quite as social as I'd hope but he had had a long day.

Thank Doris R
