I ordered the bacon cheeseburger and it was real good- the bacon was crispy and the bun was toasted almost enough. The sweet potato fries were good too. Nice art on the walls, too 😊.

I've ate there for dinner and breakfast. There burgers are a very good size with a heaping portion of hand cut fries. Good price and nice local atmosphere and setting. On Sunday mornings they have a breakfast buffet for about $9 and it is very good. Everything you can think of and it's delicious. Great bang for your buck. I... More

Great little local cafe! I had a wonderful grilled cheese sandwich and sweet potato fries with powered sugar. The portions were large so come hungry! Looks like they had some yummy cinnamon rolls and desserts...I was too full to try them. My husband had a huckleberry shake...I tried it..yum! They also had a salad bar.

I ordered cheeseburgers to go for our construction crew, and they were hot and delicious. Lots of choices for fries.

My wife and I visited yesterday as we were passing through (we'd seen the sign for the Dayton mercantile - which was closed). The welcome at The Branding Iron was great and being English and needing a cup of tea the waitress did all she could to help - and a fine cuppa it was too, alongside a very fine... More

While visiting in Dayton recently, we ate here a couple times. The supper fare was good, although a bit pricey --yummy homemade fries, chicken strips, burgers. We also had the breakfast buffet, which at $8 (included coffee) was a good deal although the eggs didn't really taste like much, pretty tough sausage patties, good hash browns. My husband liked the... More

We were a group of 8 bikes/couples from Tennessee on a Black Hills vacation. On the return trip from Red Lodge MT to Deadwood SD we stopped for gas in Dayton and noticed this restaurant. With everyone being hungry and we like to do local places when on a bike trip, we agreed to try the Branding Iron. Soooo... glad... More

Food was fair. We had lunch there with a variety of things. Everything was cooked well, but food seemed like normal products from the national food service companies. Prices were high for the quality. Service was great, people were hustling.
