Eat both dinner and breakfast here. The dinner was good enough to bring us back for breakfast! The service was great and the food served hot. It's very convenient if you are staying at the Gettysburg Inn which is across the street.

We stopped here on our way to Deadwood. The food was excellent. I have the roast beef special which was fantastic! My wife had grilled cheese and soup which she thought was great too.

If you've ever been to this small South Dakota town, you were obviously headed elsewhere. I was fortunate enough to have stumbled across this fabulous little cafe across from the hotel. Larger chain restaurants could take a lesson from these folks. Excellent service, excellent food, and they take pride in their service and establishment which is hard to find anywhere... More

Stopped in for dinner after a long day on the road and had the most wonderful meal. The salad bar was fresh and had several options. The prices were reasonable and the service was fabulous!

Great food at a reasonable price in this tiny, remote town. Enjoyed the casual atmosphere and the owner/manager was most accommodating!

Stopped in for lunch and ordered the Burger and fries. I don't normally order it but it just sounded good. Boy was I right! It was one of the best that I have had in a long time and the Fries were also very delicious. I will return again!

I had a wonderful server, great omelette, and thoroughly enjoyed my breakfast experience here at the Medicine Rock Cafe! Next time I am in Gettysburg... I'll be eating breakfast here again! Love these small town cafes!

We stayed at the awesome hotel next door during a blizzard. They recommended this place for breakfast. It's was awesome food, great prices and excellent services. We loved it! We will be back. Gettysburg, SD is the nicest most friendliest town I have ever been to. We loved it and will be back.

We stayed right next door so it was an easy walk. Food was ok not great but better than I hoped for in a small town. Salad bar worth the 3 dollars. Wing night was good. But the lasagna was all dried out.

Thank Rick N
