I had breakfast here after camping at the Medora Campground. The thing I liked the most about this restaurant is the interesting owner. She has an incredible background with many fascinating stories to tell. Oh, and the food is excellent and fairly priced!

Breakfast before leaving town, service was distracted and inconsistent, food filled the void, but eh.

Had breakfast and it was good.. Nothing special but a solid breakfast. We had an omelet and pancakes. They charge two dollars for a shared meal and fifty cents for a take out box. Not a big fan of those kind of charges..

Good food. Bad costumer service. Waitresses were rude. They lost 4 costumers while we were there. They yelled WAIT TO BE SEATED!

Not many places to eat in Medora, but luckily this place is there. It is a family restaurant. Our party consisted of 9 folks. We were seated and served right away. Some of our group had breakfast. I had a fish sandwich and Cole slaw....More

My wife and I went here for breakfast. Service was prompt. Food came fast. We had eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits, and gravy. Delicious. Enough said. A bit on the pricey side, but there are only so many choices in this town. I should note that...More

Same here - we were at The Elkhorn in May, and, like I posted then, would be happy to stop again when we are next in Medora.
