Since in the Winter very few options for dining are available we tried it again. Well - nothing changed - bad food but nice looking place with good service. If you just want drinks the bar is good.

Stopped here for dinner after spending time at Mt. Rushmore. Outstanding meal and drinks. Ordered a dirty Martini and it was perfect. Ribeye steak was cooked the way i liked. Bartenders was attentive and checked back as needed.

We stopped in while in the area due to some flight training. I had a caesar salad with some salmon added. It was a good size portion and was made with good fresh lettuce. The clam chowder was hot and tasty as well. The other...More
