I absolutely love this restaurant! The food is delicious, the service is great but the best part is the atmosphere! I love to sit outside on the boardwalk, eat lots of food, get drinks from the red garter and people watch!

This was good food and a very cool atmosphere. Kids loved everything on the walls. It was very neat. It feels like your going back in time sitting in there. We all really enjoyed it!

Great western atmosphere. The western decor is top notch and the old style bar is fantastic. The food is very good and the service was also very good. Prices were very reasonable for one of the main attractions in town.

Stopped for lunch on the way back from Rushmore. Didn't expect much but boy was I wrong. Best Monte Cristo I ever had! The sauce is usually a weak tasting yogurt strawberry mess. This was a strawberry compote. Just super. I want another right now!

We had a late lunch here after visiting Mt. Rushmore. The selection of food was good and we had soups and sandwiches. I had the bison chili bowl. It was very good.
