We first found the Latchstring over 30 years ago when we used to live in Belle Fourches, SD. It has been remodeled and is very nice with a tremendous setting. Roughlock Falls is beautiful and great for folks who would like to take a short walk. Several scenes of "Dances With Wolves" was filmed there. And the best part of all, is the Latchstring is located in the uncomparable Spearfish Canyon. Good service and good food and a beautiful setting.

We were staying across the road at the Spearfish Canyon Lodge and decided to check out the Latchstring Inn. It was a complete delight! The decor contains old West elements along with some great history of the restaurant. The serving staff was also a delight. Fast, friendly and efficient. The menu offers a good variety from specialty fish and steak options to buffalo stew. While we were enjoying some buffalo brisket, the neighboring table was raving over the chef’s special trout.

While everyone has different tastes and standards, this place gets high marks from me. It was my wife’s birthday and I especially appreciated our server, Kristin, who went out of her way to make a special evening.

Had dinner here after snowmobiling all day. This was the only place around because we didn’t want to drive anywhere. Food was mediocre at best. Unless staying at the Lodge, I would not make the trip up here just to eat.

The food at the Latchstring was always fantastic, but I would have to say the French Toast was absolutely AMAZING! Thank YOU Kristin our server for the recommendation.....

We had the trout almondine chicken fried steak and the bison burger. Everything was decent. Not amazing but good food. The service was okay. They were very friendly. The View was awesome. The restaurant was very clean.
