Excellent!

Passed through here in early August 2014. Had the best breakfast I have had in a long time. The sweet cream pancakes are excellent, I wish I had their recipe! Service was good, great environment. Overall a great place to have a meal. I would stop here again if I was in the area.

Ate at the Slate Creek Grille several times this spring and the food was always excellent. One time they were swamped and we waited a long time, but usually not much of a wait. Denver Omelette is my recommendation.

Went to slate creek on 3-21 for dinner. Was only one waitress on staff and waited 15 min before acknowledging we were there and offered drinks. My spouse and I ordered dinner off the dinner menu. I had ordered Spaghetti and meatballs from the entree menu (11.99) as the menu said included a potato option as well. When I ordered,... More

Tried the Slate Creek Grille for breakfast while visiting Hill City. It was a week day and later in the morning so it was not busy. Our waitress, Cindy, was friendly and attentive. Service was quite fast, but seeing it wasn't busy helped I'm sure. There is a separate dining room from the bar area which is nice. Traditional western... More

We stopped because it was convenient. The service was very poor. When I inquired with our waitress about the "slow" service, she stated that she was the only waitress. Well, there were only three booths with people in the Grille. So, I asked if she was cooking as well. She said no. Food was edible but not great. We ate... More

The Slate Creek Grill is a staple establishment around the Hill City area of the central Black Hills. The menu is varied but primarily meat and potato's whether its burgers or steaks and fries, baked, or mashed. If your into the basic good food to eat and travel on to the other sights in the Black Hills then Slate Creek... More

Stop here for good food. Service is ok. Don't expect great decorum. Simple tables and chairs and a bar and pool table in the middle.

This is a restaurant and bar in Hill City. There are not a lot of restaurant choices in the city so we tried this one. We arrived and were seated immediately. Our server came to take our drink orders and then she disappeared for quite a while. Somehow we got our order in but we never saw our server again.... More

Our food was great! We ate dinner there and breakfast the next day and both were very enjoyable! The prices were great especially for a tourist town! The people were friendly, but the service was slow both times.
