Had father's day buffet and food was just great and appropriate. Servers were helpful and often checked on us. View of Spearfish Canyon was excellent and such a nice walking path along Spearfish Canyon.

The Latchstring was the perfect stop after a day of hiking. The food was delicious, the service was very good and the views were amazing!

Beautiful view and the restaurant itself is very nice. Cloth table cloths, nice decor and very clean. That where it ended. I ordered a Caesar salad that was the worst I've ever ate. First it was prepared wrong. It had onions ( which my husband...More
