Our day trip from Rapid City, SD left us in Hot Springs, SD for lunch. Luckily we chose The Vault for lunch. Being served by the owner was a plus so we chose the house specialty: Philly Cheese Steak. Good choice. The restaurant was entertaining...More

Lousy service. Waited 45 minutes for our food and they were not busy. Server even argued with us about how long the ticket was in the kitchen. There were wasps flying around the dining room and our table. Food was served and we didn't see...More

Certainly nothing special about this bar. Yes, it was nice and roomy and our server was very good but the food wasn't anything different. I ordered the Philly Cheesesteak and cottage cheese and my husband had the Mr. B's BLT with fries. He enjoyed his...More

Food was good. Service was good. Paid $9+ for a burger and fries but the burger wasn't huge and only got about 20 fries. Everything was good but I like to be full when a leave a restaurant. I wasn't.

It was impossible to get a table in any restaurant in town except the Vault. So we went in. The food is okay. The waiter was harried and gruff- quite unfriendly. But we wanted food and we got it. Nuff said.

Sorry for the odd title - but it captures my impression of this place, which was a positive one. We had dinner here after visiting Mount Rushmore. After eating at many smaller, no-frills local places while on our tour (which I did enjoy immensely), this...More

Stopped in looking for a cup of coffee, looked at me like I had two heads. Felt like we put them out asking for coffee although they advertise as a coffee shop. Poor coffee and even poorer service. Stop at a gas station.

Snaring a park outside The Vault (on a busy road) opposite the Fall River, we strolled along the riverfront then entered the Pubfor a pint and a quick meal. Not being locals we needed info on their beer listings but firstly the young waitress pretended...More

Typical bar food, and atmosphere. Several Spicer things to choose from. I had the vault burger which was stuffed with bleu cheese bacon, jalapenos and sauce, that was very good. Everyone else said there was good, not great.
