This is a great place to eat in Custer, family friendly. If you have a larger group do not sit on the bar side as space is limited and feels much more crowded. They do have a good beer selection. Service has always been good.

We have eaten lunch here twice and both times the food and service were outstanding. The menu has a great selection of items and the prices are acceptable. It is family friendly as well. Without hesitation, I heartily recommend The Bugling Bull.

Ordered the pulled pork, summer salmon sandwich, and Greek salad. Very little salmon on a huge bun and iceberg lettuce for the Greek salad. Pulled pork was the best of the three and still only mediocre. Service was underwhelming, as well.

Service was fine. Wait staff friendly and accommodating. The food was unimaginative, tepid, low quality and tasteless. The Caesar salad tasted like it was dipped in chlorine. The elk burger could not be differentiated from a beef burger. The marshmallow sauce accompanying the sweet potato...More
