Saw it listed in Trip Advisor in the small town of Chamberlain. Located off the interstate downtown on the river. Very quaint diner full of locals for lunch. Service was good. One of our diners said it was the best chili had

When driving through South Dakota, we usually eat at places close to the road. This time we thought we’d drive into Chamberlain and try someplace new. So happy we did! Food was good and the chocolate chimichanga was beyond amazing. We will go back again...More

So happy we drove a bit longer this morning. We had a delicious late breakfast, pancakes, omelette, bacon, etc, good coffee. Friendly people and nice fishing decor. As we have found in many of these family-owned cafes, there were daily specials, well worth the price.

We stayed one night in Chamberlain. Tried the Anchor grill for dinner and liked it enough to come back for breakfast. Friendly service and good food. Plus a full bar.

Friendly service but the experience was just OK. Two out of our three orders was incorrect but they did fix it relatively quickly.

Pleasant staff and good service. Would definitely order tacos again. Next time we will try the deep fried snicker dessert or the homemade pie.
