Great food but limited menu in the evening. Lunch offers many options for German cuisine. Popular spot for folks visiting Hill City and Custer State Park. Great atmosphere.

No. I understand there is always a line. Just be prepared and they were very good at estimating the wait time. There is lots to wander in the block or two around the inn.
