Been a couple years since I was there, but best ribeye steak I've every had! Outdoors experience for the most part and did the "Medora Musical" after dinner. A very nice evening.

We had a one-night stop over in Medora on the way to Yellowstone. Before catching the Medora Musical, we ate as a family at the Pitchfork Streak Fondue. The food is nice enough, but really, the only good thing about the entire food line-up is...More

We always eat here before attending the musical, it just goes hand in hand with each other. Steak (or hotdog),fruit, salads, beans, coffee, water, lemonade and a brownie or muffin. Open bar on site.

We had gone to the Pitchfork Fondue on a previous trip and couldn't wait to go again. There were many more people there this time. The vista is still beautiful but the steak was overcooked. Not nearly as good as before.

My preference is meat well done so I was worried about getting a steak but was able to pick out one that was cooked enough that I could eat it. I picked out a thin one. Others in the group got steaks that were varying...More

This restaurant is next to the Medora musical venue. The steaks are stuck on pitchforks and cooked in a huge fondue pot so they are crispy on the outside and cooked to medium on the inside. The view of the North Dakota Badlands is spectacular...More

From their website it looks like its $ 32 per person. This includes the steak and buffet. I believe you'll need to buy tickets in town or online beforehand. Not sure if they have an onsite sales office.

This is not a typical restaurant. The meal is served from 5:30 - 6:30, I believe--right before the musical.
