Birthday Dinner Suggestions

My husband and I will be coming to Hill City this week to celebrate my husbands birthday. Any restaurant suggestions for a birthday dinner in or around Hill City?

Thanks!!

If you like filet mignon for a very good price, there is the Alpine Inn, but you have to be patient with the mob of people that go there.. Those in the know arrive around 4:30 and get a table in the bar so they are first in line for the 5:00 opening rush. You can arrive at 5 and still get a table in the dining room, but they might not get your food prepared in the first "round." The server told us the dining room holds more people than the kitchen can cook for at the same time, if that makes sense. Bottom line, the food and prices are good, but you have to patient.

We went to the Alpine Inn last week and ate at 9pm. (We'd had a late lunch so weren't hungry until then and the restaurant is open until 10pm.) We were seated within 5 minutes of our arrival and we had excellent service and excellent food. The dining rooms were clearing out shortly after our arrival, so it was quieter and less hectic than I imagine it was earlier in the evening.

So, if you can wait for a late dinner, it should work out better than earlier in the evening.

Yes, dinners can be tough at the Alpine Inn, which is why we have always done lunch there. Another option that would be slightly further would be one of the lodges in Custer State Park. Blue Bell Lodge has excellent food, and others speak highly of the State Game Lodge and Sylvan Lake Lodge.

Hill City is rather thin on places to eat. Bumpin Buffalo actually has pretty good food (but it is a bar no matter what), Desperados looks good, Alpine would work, just go around 8-8:30, put your name in and have a drink on the deck/porch. We had a table in about 15 minutes.
