A great place to eat! We have eaten at this location on many occasions. Open for dinner only. The food is delicious and I don't believe there is a better salad bar in the hills. Don't forget to try the potato soup on the salad bar.

Traveling across country we found this place, which had great reviews. Not the cheapest but not expensive either ($40 for us both with steaks and a drink each). The salad bar comes with dinners and is amazing!!

We had been waiting to take friends to the Bum Steer for a special event. The salad bar was good, soup was good but our entrees were disappointing. Steak tips were cooked beyond medium, dried out and definitely not tender. We have eaten there many times but it appears that there is a change of ownership. It wasn't the same.

Who would have thought it would be tough to find a steak house in South Dakota, especially in a college town? Well, we did find The Bum Steer and located only a few blocks from our motel. Not a lot in the way of atmosphere, but they have a great salad bar and the steaks were just what we were seeking. We even tried a buffalo sirloin, and it was nice and tender and tasty (I've had some really tough and gamey bison in the past!). If you are in the mood for a steak, you will want to seek out The Bum Steer next time you pass through Spearfish.
