A bikers heaven during the rally,I always hit up the Knuckle for a couple beers and watch the entertainment. The food is excellent before the rally,but really downgrades during the rally,more just fast food. That said,everything else is great,definitely a good vibe in this establishment,and my favourite is the pirate radio station KNKL broadcasting out of a small booth right... More

I went in, sat at the bar, and had fast courteous service. I tried the house beer and ordered a hamburger. Life is good. Everything tasted great. A souvenir shop is connected to the saloon for a easy way to get your Sturgis memorabilia.

Ate at The Knuckle Saloon while at the Mustang rally. From what we'd been told this restaurant was known for having good food and really good steak tips. Based upon others recommendations tried the steak tips and found them to be underwhelming and only lukewarm when they arrived to our table. We're not finicky eaters or have high end taste,... More

We stopped there, because I always like to try the local brewery. This one was a good one. Good food and great beer. The only problems we had, was the service. They seemed to be bored and didn't want to be there.

A trip back to Souh Dakota wouldnt be complete for a petrolhead like me without a trip back to Sturgis. Things are obviously a bit quieter at this time of the year as opposed to last year when I was here for the 75th rally. Quite a few bars in Sturgis close out of Bike Week but the Knuckle is... More

We stopped here for a beer on a late September afternoon, when things were quiet :-). Bartender was very friendly, described some of their beers, which were excellent. I like their pricing system for a flight of beer - four 4 ounce for $7, and then a dollar for every one after. Would love to be here when it is... More
