When we saw two items on the dinner menu, a filet (6 oz or 9 oz) or German dumpling, we were caught off guard as to whether we wanted to risk dinner to such a limited menu. We learned from our server the menu has been limited and unchanged for decades but she promised the dessert choices would make up for limited entree choices. A filet is not our preferred cut of beef, but ours was tasty. The salad and baked potato accompaniments were tasty. The prices are quite reasonable so I would say this is a good value. The desserts were delectable. I had a brownie, served hot with ice cream and my wife had a Napoleon. Both were as good as we have ever had. Overall, this is worth the stop and the value makes it a good experience. For me, though, given a couple other items, perhaps a fish and a pasta or veal dish, would take this from four bullets to five bullets. Oh, and the place only accepts cash.

This is the most popular restaurant in Hill City and I am not certain why that is.

Perhaps, it is because of the location ( Middle of Main Street ) Perhaps, it is because there are not very many restaurants in Hill City and perhaps it is because that people do enjoy the food.

We found our experience to be one of interesting contrasts. The food was quite acceptable, however, you have only two selections for your entrée.

There are no reservations taken, therefore, you line up and hopefully, you will not have to wait an hour or two for a table.

The most interesting aspect is that CREDIT CARDS ARE NOT ACCEPTED, IT IS CASH ONLY.

All in all, this worthwhile as long as you understand and accept their rules and conditions.

We did dinner here. They open at 5 pm for dinner. No reservations accepted so there is a line to get in. Only two choices- filet mignon or pasta. The filet was very good. It comes in 6 oz or 9 oz. very reasonable price. 9oz is $13.95. That includes salad and a starch. Their spaetzel(sp) was good. Desserts were really good. A wide selection. Our group had several different ones and they were all really good. This is the best place to eat in Hill City. Lunch is a wider menu including German items.

What a homey kind of place with a great menu and great food to back it up. All three of us enjoyed our selections but the desserts were beyond outstanding...so you must save up your calories to splurge on dessert!!!

Wow this place is busy, but it's huge inside vdo don't let the crowd scare you away. It's worth the wait if you have the time.
Once seated the service is lightning fast, we were able to order right away. I had my beer in minutes, and didn't have time to take a drink when our wedge salad came. It's just a 1/4 head with homemade ranch. Different but good. Bacon wrapped filet mignon with toast, baked potato. Simple and fantastic, and for$14 it's a steal. The steak is sooooo tender it literally melts in your mouth. The baked potato was cooked perfectly, only the toast was a bit soft but who cares about toast with steak like this.
We're definitely coming here tomorrow.
