We tried for supper after reading the reviews but the dining room was closed. The gal at the lunch counter said it was really hot in there. (This was 5:30 on a Thursday night and we were the only people there). The only option was filthy barstools at a sticky counter. We passed. The rides look scary. Older than me... More

We honestly didn't stop here too long, so this review might not help anyone. We drove by it on the way to Deadwood, SD. We pulled in to take some pictures, but because we were on a time crunch, we kept driving. In hindsight, we wish we would have gotten out and enjoyed the place. It looked like a lot... More

We stopped here on our way to Deadwood. The guy that served us in the diner was great. Very friendly and personable. The food was good, and when we ate in the diner it felt like we were in the 50's. From there we went into the Elvis memorabilia store. The staff was great. There's so much to see, and... More

Starting with the food - the girl cooking did and awesome job great burgers, dogs, fries, onion rings and cold beer ... then we had to walk off all that ... they had an... More

Wow-it's a crazy sight. A carnival, 50s diner, midway (arcade/carnival games), and collector's/toy shop nestled in a beautiful forest in South Dakota. Quite refreshing as they have plenty of grub and alcoholic and non-alcoholic cold beverages. Really stopped just for the restroom but the classic cars and hard to find collector's items wooed me. I have been to several tourist... More

Stopped in between lunch and dinner on a weekday. There was only one other family there. Wasn't really hungry, but I had fried pickles with ranch dressing for the first time. I really liked them. My husband had a vanilla shake, and he enjoyed his treat too. But I did observe the "freshly cut" french fries - - wow, they... More

We had so much fun reminiscing and just enjoying a walk back in time. There was all kinds on nostalgia for the 50's, of course it makes you want to buy everything (because of the fun memories attached to them), but we were really good and didn't buy.. just poked, it was really neat. We didn't get a chance to... More

I found this place odd in the middle of all the natural beauty. Kinda an eye sore and pricey too. I think this would be better in the city.

Loved the music playing, the ferris wheel going. It was almost evening, and we were driving by and noticed this roadside little community. We stopped and browsed through the stores. They had all kinds of things from the 50's for display, and others to be purchased. We didn't eat, but would have loved a milkshake, or hotdog. It was just... More

My family stopped here on one of our "tourist days." We go to local attractions and enjoy our area. We stopped here for ice cream on the way home, and sat at the counter. It was fun, and the staff was very friendly. The milkshakes were delicious, as was the apple pie! We will definitely return soon to try the... More
