This is a great restaurant where the locals eat. We were there for the Easter Sunday Buffett and the food was good for that. But during the week the menu is definitely worth checking out if you are any where near Rockerville is on South Highway 16 out of Rapid City. The decor has that out west feel.

My favorite place to go outside of the Rapid City limits! A beautiful place with a great atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and they have some unique and great specials. Also, my favorite place to unwind after work, as they have a great outdoor area as well.

After we realized that there was only one restaurant open in Keystone where we were staying, we headed over to the Gaslight to get take out. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The food was good. The atmosphere was really neat, I wish we had time to stay for the bluegrass jam they were having. Would go back if... More

The "new" Gaslight in Rockerville is a great, local restaurant serving up a large menu with super service and a nice, western atmosphere. It's easy to find off Hwy. 16A in the historic mining camp of Rockerville about 12 miles south of Rapid City. We enjoyed the generous food; friendly service and casual western decor and atmosphere. Highly recommended for... More

We were in the area on business and had made arrangements to visit our friends who own Battle Creek Lodge and at their suggestion we ate at the Gaslight. I had eaten here before but not under this owner and I must say it was good before and has not lost anything under the new owners. Our group was seated... More

The options for dinner in Keystone, SD, are very limited during the winter, but we found a gem just minutes away in Rockerville, SD - The Gaslight. Located between Rapid City and Keystone, it was quickly apparent that the locals come here to eat. Not only was the parking area packed, but most of the vehicle license plates were South... More

The restaurant at Mt. Rushmore was unexpectedly closed, so trying to find a place to eat at the end of the summer when everything is closed, we tried the Gaslight. I'd heard stories of the place, but the experience exceeded the reputation. Fast and friendly service. Great food. We went away happy.
