We stopped here for a quick bite and drink. Tables were full, so we got a spot at the bar. Drinks were good, service was fast. We had the Chislic - fried sirloin tips, which were very good.

This Historical Bar & Grill is located downtown Main Street in the small mountain community of Hill City South Dakota. The building, built in 1903 resides as one of Hill City’s oldest standing buildings on Main Street. Hill City in the early mining days was once know as a town with a church on each end and a mile of hell in between. Some visitors claim to say to this day they can hear and see the ghosts of the miners and cowboys past. Inside is a Brunswick-Blake-Collender Back Bar built in 1897. With having beveled glass mirrors the bar reflected thirsty patrons bellied up to the bar, and boot propped on the brass rail. Back then Bar Stools were considered improper-real men took their liquor standing up. The Bar and Grill is well known for our Famous 1/2 lb fresh Angus Burgers, amazing Buffalo Burgers, Beef Chislic, Homemade soups and awesome specials. Come Bump with as the Bumpin Buffalo when you are in the Mount Rushmore area!
