We didn't stay long enough to eat or drink. First person encountered in the place was quite honestly one of the rudest waitresses I've ever had. Didn't want to get drinks or a menu for us. The place wasn't that busy but apparently she wasn't looking to work this night. No intentions of going back.

I would not recommend this place. Only one waitress to seat you, serve, you and assist you. I was very disappointed in this place. She was the only one so the service was more than slow, flies were just about anywhere you looked, and you just wanted to finish and leave. Too bad, because the food wasn't too bad at... More

Eating at the Mangy Moose is a great place to relax, have some great food, adult beverages and people watch while sitting curbside.

Nice western style restaurant, tex-mex, interesting food. Spartan service, but at least efficient. Didn't like so many smokers in outside restaurant area. Smoke ruins food taste.

Very slow service. Sat for at least 10-15 minutes before anyone came to take out drink order. Nice outdoor space along downtown but service is way too slow.

Sturgis rally 2016. Not a large crowd at all at this place. Service is non existent if you are not sitting at the bar. This is a great place to sit and watch the street traffic. But once again, been here two times before, could never get a food order and finally had to leave and go to another restaurant... More

This is a very casual place with a limited menu, and mostly bar food. We just had drinks, and I ordered a Bacardi, but not really sure what I got, as it had some weird flavor to it. We sat at the counter that overlooks the street, so it's fun to chat with the locals and watch everyone go by.... More

The pork here was excellent! We had the pork burrito and chicken nachos. The chicken was good too but next time all pork! Service and drinks were great too! Will be back every year for sure!

One out of 5 waitresses were nice looking, hint had teeth, boobs where they belonged, and didn't have missed spelled comments across her rear end!!! I know it's biker week but come on!!!

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.
