Extensive menu but too commercialized. The food was good as well as the beverages. Just another modern like place. I would rather be in a local bar n grill. Great service. No complaints.More

It is nice to get away from the chain restaurants and have something unique. Of course you have a selection of Buffalo entrees as you are in So. Dak. Our food was prepared well and we had no complaints. Nice selection.

Since in the Winter very few options for dining are available we tried it again. Well - nothing changed - bad food but nice looking place with good service. If you just want drinks the bar is good.

Stopped here for dinner after spending time at Mt. Rushmore. Outstanding meal and drinks. Ordered a dirty Martini and it was perfect. Ribeye steak was cooked the way i liked. Bartenders was attentive and checked back as needed.
