The Powder House is a comfortable little restaurant just outside of Keystone SD. It has a rustic charm, with classic food. I was quite impressed, one of the best places I ate while in South Dakota.

Yes, they have a special section on the menu that is Gluten free, as I recall. They seem to be very attentive to dietary needs for all of their guests.
