Great view from the roof terrace!

We enjoyed the view of Hill City and the surrounding hills from the roof terrace and also loved the beautiful wooden bar - the beer is good here too.

This is a favorite stop for us. Eat upstairs. The staff is friendly and the food is good. We just happened to be there during a hail storm. The waiter/bartender was so accommodating. We couldn't leave because we were on motorcycles and he made the experience much more comfortable. Watching the storm from the upstairs deck was amazing.

Our family of six was seated promptly and my Chardonnay was cold. We tried the Moose Drool dark lager and will be picking up some to take back to IL. Our burgers looked dense, but were delicious. I highly recommend this as a fun stop in Hill City.

The buffalo burger was okay, but not worth the 30 minute wait after ordering. We didn't get water for 15 minutes, despite half the tables being empty. We were in high tourist season, so you'd think they'd want to impress.

The food was excellent. The atmosphere was fun. We were hoping to eat on the roof, but they couldn't fit a large group up there. It was still a fun place to be.

We came to the Black Hills region to see the many sights and pre Sturgis 2015 culture. Lots of Bikers but not so many you couldn't get around. Any place with the name Buffalo Bumping deserved a visit. Plus it has been recognize on road trip food sites for serving a fried beef dish called Chislic. The Chislic was great... More

Here for the summer, keep coming back! Best beer price, best chicken sandwiches ANYWHERE. Staff is friendly, bar atmosphere, balcony was a little disappointing because you can't see much over a board they have placed across the view.

Stopped in for a late lunch. Food was excellent and selection was nice for a place which has such a prominent bar. The food was reasonably priced relative to similar places throughout the Black Hills area. We ate on the roof deck (which is covered). The afternoon breeze added to the nice views. The beer was good. The only notable... More

I had the chitlicks, which were marinated sirloin tips deep fried with a super sweet and smoky barbecue sauce. The side of fries was out of this world. My husband had the fish and chips and enjoyed his meal. I'd recommend it highly! !!!

My girlfriend and I rode into Hill City with a buddy. Bumpin Buffalo looked cool. Let me just say the buffalo burgers we had were cooked perfectly. They were delicious! The fries were equally as awesome. The staff was very friendly. The rooftop deck is a really cool place to drink a brew and watch the bikers. Will definitely go... More
