Overpriced, underwhelming food choices, poor presentation and long wait times. We were really disappointed as this appeared to be ‘the’ place to eat in Keystone and we had been looking forward to our meal.

This restaurant is housed in a neat old building in Keystone. It offers a nostalgic, old west atmosphere. The food was good, as well as the service.

This place was very unique. A person could spend hours in here just looking at the things on the wall. The waitress staff was friendly. The food was good, wasn't too costly either. If going through Keystone worth checking out. We enjoyed the buffalo burgers.

Very nice atmosphere. We eat here every time we visit the Black Hills. Prices are reasonable for a tourist destination.

My party stopped by here for lunch while touring and it was just a great place to eat! The decor was very interesting, full of Old West arcana for the history buff. The wait staff was super friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious!...More

Not Cordon Bleu but we enjoyed our meal here. Food was tasty (we had chopped buffalo steaks) and service was friendly. This together with the dining room’s ambience and a pre-dinner beer in the adjoining ‘saloon’ while waiting for a table made for a great...More

We were staying in Keystone and actually had dinner here twice because we enjoyed the first night's meal. The food and the service are both good and we enjoyed the 'Wild West' look of the place. Try the buffalo stew served in a bread bowl...More

We recently ate at Ruby's for an early dinner after hiking the Black Elk trail with our two dogs. We were exhausted from the almost 7 mile hike and needed a good meal. We also needed a place where we could eat outside with the...More

Keystone is small and since we were there at the end of their season, not any options for dining but Ruby House did not disappoint. Fabulous filet, with a Caesar salad and a baked potato was perfect. At other tables we noticed great looking burgers...More

Yes you can make reservations! Call ahead of time, or go in the restaurant and let them know what time and day you want a reservation for and how many people! If you don’t want to wait I recommend getting reservations!
