Tasty food, pleasant waiters and waitresses who aren't snooty, and an enjoyable meal. One of my two favorite restaurants in Rapid City.

Sadly, didn't try the extensive menu, had a breakfast. Eggs were good, sausage was also. The waffle has pretty mediocre. More of a cake texture with little tug. Love waffles, just not this one.

We are so happy you enjoyed the eggs and sausage Al! Please return soon and give the rest of the extensive menu a go. Hope to see you soon.

This was our first time here. The service was very good but the star of the show was the food. We had lunch and then dessert. Wow what a dessert, I ate on it for two days!!!!

This is a 'go to' location for our family and we are never disappointed. The menu is creative and satisfying whether you dine for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The portions are full! The staff is great.

We had two great breakfasts, and regret not being around for a dinner. Easily the best food in Rapid City. Great service, welcoming atmosphere, full bar. I cannot say the same for other places we visited in town.
