Bring the team!

Restaurants often struggle with large groups but after a baseball game this gang was ready to roll! Service was excellent and the food wide-ranging! My favorite were the fried asparagus! Only disappointment- no alligator the menu. Ha!We will be back!

My son and I stopped at 9:00 p.m. to have a beer before we walked back to the adjacent hotel. I was happy to see the sign on the door "local is the new black" which touted several local (SD) beers. The place was about half full of people. We asked the bar tender if he had a beer list... More

Ate a business lunch here yesterday - lots of choices. Place looks like it would be great to watch a football game on the weekend. Good food, reasonable prices, friendly staff.

Let me qualify my rating by saying was the service which pulled this down a point. Was seated and waited almost 10 minutes before the only server noticed we were there. Asked for wine and finished my salad before any wine shoved up. Obviously the best place to eat in town so is busy, but only one server is rediculas.... More

The staff is excellent but the kitchen is slipping since new management took over. The food coming out of the kitchen is sometimes cold and not the quality it used to be

This restaurant is right next to the Comfort Inn where we were staying and I'm glad we checked it out for dinner one night. We were seated quickly and the server was polite. I tried a mixed drink that wasn't my favorite but it was decently priced and well-made so I think it was just personal preference when trying something... More

Service was not good. We almost got up and left because no one would wait on us. I ordered the special and was later told it was sold out.

Snuggled away just east of Sioux Falls South Dakota just off I-90 is a jewel not often found in small communities like Brandon SD! First time I stopped there was not by choice but by Blizzard and the two times since have been by choice. Plenty of room for Family with a very nice room and nice amenities. The Bar... More

Super busy the night we came here. Ntn to right home about but after a long day of travel and search for a room to stay the night it was perfect and was right behind our hotel. It was a regular bar and grill but the food was good and service was good too. Would def eat here again if... More

I visited here twice thinking it might have changed but it retained it's abysmal service and food. The soup of the day was beer cheese and had the texture of old wallpaper paste. The taste didn't quite reach bland. Thinking they couldn't really screw up a hamburger I ordered it but it was quite tasteless. The others at the table... More
