Busy restaurant with good food and pleasant staff. A bit noisy, but tables are spread far enough apart you are able to converse with the people you are eating with. Hearty food with nice portion sizes. Salad bar comes with most entrees.

We had the Mahi-mahi and the fajitas. This a rare occasion when you can get amazing Mexican & Seafood at the same restaurant! Both were delicious and the service was great👍

Great atmosphere, great food! This was a great place for our family- we felt there were a lot of choices, reasonable prices, and even though they were busy the service was wonderful. We will eat there again.

I really usually love the menu at your place, but your special last week of the green chili and beef burritos were really worse than terrible. They were the exact same hard, dried burritos that you can get at the local convenience store (which I looked for yesterday and noted that they cost 38 cents at Walmart) with some congealed... More

We went to get something to eat and came back the next three nights we were in Custer South Dakota. The stall, food, atmosphere everything was great. I felt like home. Ernie the bartender was awesome. We really enjoyed our time there. They also have great tee shirts. Mayor Tony and Marie from Lansdowne pa September 2016

We had such a good dinner here! We chose to eat in the bar area, fun atmosphere, nice decor. My husband had a burger; it was huge, only ate half, but it was juicy and delicious. Some of the best sweet potato fries I've ever tried. They served them with marshmallow cream, yummy. I had the chicken quesadilla, very good... More

This restaurant became our hunting party's nightly hangout during the black hills deer season. Had a taco pizza one night that was way bigger than advertised in the menu. Surf and turf, one night which was very good and prime rib the third night which was okay. Service ranged from fair to very good. Beer selection didn't match the menu... More
