Description: Mangy Moose has been owned and operated by a single woman for over 20 years. We spent those years becoming the best bar in the southern hills, and offered your typical bar menu of burgers and appetizers. We have grown to a place that sells burgers, Mexican food and a great ribeye steak on the outdoor grill. Our cooking facilities are minimal and it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the high volume of hungry customers. Our food is good and most things are made fresh from scratch, but we have the most square footage on the block and a lot of steps to get food and drinks for the hundreds and hundreds of people that stop by each day. We love to have you visit the Mangy Moose and have a good time, but if you are in a hurry... you may sometimes be disappointed in the wait. There is usually live entertainment on the outside stage to enjoy, with a full liquor bar. Please keep in mind that we are doing the best we can with the facilities and staff that we have. We are a BAR with a limited menu, that happens to sell food, and not a RESTAURANT that sells alcohol. Everything on our menu is good and we have specialty foods that you can't get at any ordinary restaurant. If you are in a hurry and looking for a large menu, we are probably not what you are looking for. But if you are looking for a great place to sit on the outdoor patio and people watch, or a great place to enjoy a cocktail, a beer, or a glass of wine and have a bite to eat... you won't be disappointed.

We visited this restaurant after noticing the reviews on TripAdvisor. Although we ate a late lunch, we found the service and food average at best. The atmosphere was very nice, with the views and local, but there was nothing that would make me come back to this restaurant.

It was an average bar setting, most of the seating was outside and the service was slow and bad attitudes.

We stopped there on a Saturday afternoon in August(prime tourist season). We had a group of 9 adults and did get a table right away. The service staff passed us by for about fifteen minutes before anyone stopped to ask if we had been helped. Another fifteen went by before she took our order- both drink and food. Forty five minutes later we went to the bar to get our own drinks because we had nothing delivered to us. It was 90 degrees and not even the water we had asked for had been given. When it did arrive(over a fifteen minute span) the orders were incorrect as were the drinks. The food was average bar food - even the ribs that they were suggesting. We waited another fifteen for the bill and when it came she said aloud- your bill is 113.06. We counted out that amount and then looked at the bill133.60. We threw the money on the table and left. No clue if the other guests took it- don't care! We did try to talk to someone about this and they didn't care about any of our concerns. Horrible place. We even were telling people not to go there, even for a drink. BTW, it was not that busy. Only about half the tables were full. Worst place EVER!!

We stopped by The Mangy Moose for lunch on vacation and the service was insanely ridiculous. We waited for over an hour to get our food and we still didn't have our drink order. A beer bottle came with the cap still on it, orders were incorrect. The waitress seemed very frazzled when the group of us showed up. Just not good service at all. I'm sire we won't be visiting this place again.

A great staff that will make you feel like they have been your friends for a lifetime. We could not find anything open at 9 pm and when the owner and cook heard we were hungry, ithey offered to throw together some pork sandwiches. They were hearty and the cook brought us some chips and homemade salsa while we waited for food. The conversation with the staff kept us entertained that we came back a second night and were served by the delightful Melissa. This is one of those places that we will remember for the people...warm and welcoming and a great representation of the nice folks of SD. Not a place for foodies or snobs, but perfect if you want to have a good time...we did!
