The food here is basic and awful, I make better burgers at home and I'm not a great cook. The service is usually pretty slow since you can walk in and sit without being noticed. There are tons of mounted animals on the walls. The people here aren't nice. They do have a couple good beers, and the bar atmosphere... More

We stopped here on our way from Mt Rushmore. The first girl who served us was a little distracted but friendly enough, she was ending her shift but still saw to us first. The lady who took over as our server seemed like the last thing she wanted to do was help us. Shame as it was a nice establishment... More

They offer a great breakfast on the weekend (maybe during the week; not sure). Large portion of ham with eggs.

Needed a local place to stop late lunch and happened across The Vault. What a pleasant find! The Jalapeno Popper Burger was interesting! I recommend stopping by.

Great place for homemade nachos, darts, and a pool table. Spent many Wednesday night's hanging out here. Bartender, waitress and general super and smiley Courtney is just the best.

Stopped here on the way home from Sturgis - group of 10. Not many people in here and service is very slow. Sat here 10 minutes before we were even asked if we wanted a drink!! 3 tables with dirty plates and the waitress is standing talking to someone at bar. Finally waved over waitress to get refills. Took 55... More

Had a drink with spouse night before as couple then back the next morning with family for breakfast while on vacation. Bartender was nice and helpful with local recommendations. Breakfast was very average/so-so and a little slow considering it wasn't busy.

After golfing at the spectacular Southern Hills Course, we were famished and checked out The Vault. The food was satisfactory and the taxidermy was dusty. Our waitress was friendly, but appeared to be dressed to do some gardening at home. The menu offered regular bar food. Highlights: the plastic mayo bottle had googley eyes glued on and the beer was... More

Stopped in for dinner. Looked like a place the locals eat so we have it a try. Ordered a burger and a French dip both were ok not the best but ok for the money.
