The Dark Horse is no longer in business. It closed sometime last fall & the building was sold to new owners this winter. They have since gutted the building.

Nothing special here. Up three short flights of stairs into an old looking bar. A menu that is a bit pricey for even Custer in the summer. When we arrived at 6:00 pm we were the only ones in the place. They do have a...More

Food was okay, service very limited, the staff acted like it was an inconvenience. The prime buffalo roast was very good, but the BBQ buffalo brisket was way dry and the sides were very commercial. I have no plans to return, it wasn't anything special....More

This place is kind of hidden by the restaurant in front of it. We initially thought it was all one place. Stopped in for dinner while staying in Custer. It was a Monday night and not busy. Food was good and reasonable. The waitress was...More
