We ate at this restaurant 2 times during our SD visit. This restaurant has some great things going for it. From our impression it is owned and managed by local people. The location and design of the restaurant are 5 stars. A lot of hands-on work went into remodeling and decorating. Service is excellent. Hosts and servers are friendly and... More

Nice atmosphere, great buffalo burger with loads of sweet potato fries. Chicken steak was very good too. I ate here twice over Labor Day weekend. Once solo and again with two friends. Enjoyed both meals.

Great place for a bit of a fancier meal, without breaking the bank. If you're not local and want to try local fare - definitely take a chance with the buffalo sirloin. Simply fantastic. The popovers were to die for as well. Good service, clean facility, great good and moderate prices made this one of the best meals of the... More

After my great experience with Desperadoes last summer when I was out there, my granddaughter and I went there twice on our trip this year. She loves the ribs there. She claims it's the best she's had. So good....we went there the first 2 days we stayed in Hill City. She wishes that Desperados had a restaurant in the area... More

My husband had the bison steak which was very delicious. My sirloin was dry and had no flavor. We both had smashed potatoes and gravy which was as another reviewer described...gummy with no flavor. Salad was ok. Popovers with honey butter were delicious. These were served before the meal. Owner and server were very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was... More

The fare was mediocre and pricey. We didn't feel the food was equal to the price. We had the walleye, which was served with the skin on-giving the filet a "fishy" taste. The sides were lackluster. The food wasn't bad-just over rated and too expensive for what we received.
