Decent Food

We chose the Bumpin Buffalo because it it's a "Bar & Grill". After a long day on the road and riding the 1880 train we wanted a cocktail before dinner. We assumed that "Bar" meant it has a full bar. Not so, they only serve Beer & Wine and I find that misleading. So just be aware of that if... read more

Great appetizers, good food with in a great atmosphere. We ate here at least twice the week we camped nearby. Fun to hang out on the rooftop deck.

Bar food menu was okay and overpriced. Waitress was less than enthusiastic about serving us. Would not recommend this bar and grill. We were hungry and desperate for dinner. This was a last resort!

The service was incredibly slow. It was around 7:30 p.m. and not very busy but they had ran out of the specials, took forever to get our food and we felt like we were an inconvenience to them. There are plenty of other places to eat in town. The food was so-so and not worth the wait.....

Stopped for lunch and ate on the roof. There were 10 of us and we all selected something different. Everyone was pleased with the service and the food.

The same Brunswick of pool table and bowling alley fame. I had the taco salad. My wife had the sirloin tips. The food was great. They have a good selection of... More

We eat here every time we are in Hill City or Lead. The food is always great at a fare price. This go around at the 75th, the burgers weren't as good as normal. It seemed as if they were pre-cooked and reheated. They were dry but were eatable!! I am sure it was hard to keep food rolling at... More
