Growing up I saw many movies about and heard many references to General Custer and his last stand. This battlefield, near the current Crow Indian reservation, is where it happened. Besides the battlefield there is a large veteran cemetery, some tipis to inspect, a building with artifacts of the time and the battlefield itself plus the 7th Cavalry cemetery. To... More

We stopped here for a late lunch after we toured the Battlefield. It was a great choice. The servers were native Americans and the most polite and friendly we have encountered. I had to order the Buffalo (Bison) Burger as I do everywhere it's available. With a side order of Frybread and honey I was in paradise. Cooked to perfection... More

This is a really nice gift shop and a great little restaurant too with a lovely view over the battlefield area. There’s nothing else nearby as an alternative so it’s just as well that this place is as decent as it is

We stopped at the Custer Battlefield Trading Post after touring the Little Big Horn Memorial. The store is filled with wonderful native art and jewelry as well as souvenirs and tee shirts and too many things to mention. We also had lunch in the cafe and it was good. I had the Indian taco and my husband had the buffalo... More

We stayed nearby in our RV to tour the Battlefield, and the campground staff recommended this place. We thought it was a tourist joint -wrong! The food and service were great and the restaurant was filled with a mx of tourists, local Crow Indians, ranchers,etc having Sunday lunch. We ordered Indian Tacos with great fry bread you finish off with... More

Unfortunately we couldn't eat at the café (too late for lunch, too early for dinner). We did, however, spend a long time in the shop. Superb Plains Indians craftsmanship alongside cheaper, touristy stuff (careful, not all genuine Indian). The beadwork and quillwork for sale are beautiful!

Review mentioning KFC is NOT the Trading Post, but shopping center next door. Trading Post is almost directly across from National Monument entrance and looks like a Wooden Fort, complete with wagons, tepees, and 7th Cavalry guidons flying. Fun place for a simple lunch - nothing fancy, but nice selection with some American Indian items on the menu. Trading Post... More
