Slow service, expensive drinks. Rude staff. My friend scheduled a surprise birthday party for her husband and when we showed up none of the staff were aware and none of the food was prepared. They pulled some stuff together. Not a great experience

This hometown pub serves excellent meals with very generous portions and at a reasonable price. Lots of antique and collector decor to check out, all in the Biker Motif of course, since Sturgis hosts one of the biggest motorcycle rallies in the US each August....More

This place was suggested to us by our hotel. One of the newer establishments in Sturgis. Server James Dean (JD or Walter) took very good care of us and the food was delicious (had enough left over to take with us for another meal).
