Good place to stop in for breakfast

Stopped in for breakfast, spouse has a breakfast burrito with hash browns it was very good and more than she could eat. I had toast with couple of eggs which was cooked as ordered and very good. They were busy but servers did a good job of taking care of everyone. Did not try but they have... read more

Stumbled by the front window and read "All You Can Eat Catfish" and we were sold. We then found out they also had a steak and shrimp platter, so we ordered both. Little did we know we would be eating Surf & Turf for dinner that evening and at a very reasonable price. The service was truly with a smile... More

Came here for lunch while on vacation in the Black Hills. We visited in the off season, so not many places were open, so had little to choose from. Tried it because of the many positive reviews. Wish we hadn't! It was during the week, so it wasn't very busy at lunch time. We took a table in the back... More

Great food at a reasonable price! We each had the steak and shrimp special on a Sunday. Good food, great service and busy place. One of two places open in town on that day in December! Would definitely come back to this gem!

The staff worked really hard to keep everything moving, yet they kept a very friendly attitude as the place was packed due to the tree-lighting parade. Atmosphere is as you would imagine a home-style, small-town cafe should be. Prices were good, the service was excellent, but the food just didn't do much for me. Perhaps I had unreasonable expectations, but... More

This cafe on Main Street offers hearty homestyle meals and burgers. The weekend all you can eat ribs was a treat. Portions are very generous and one serving was more than enough. The ribs were tender, lean, and full of flavor. The cafe also offers a salad bar and although the selections are somewhat limited, everything was fresh. The service... More

We walked here to eat after staying at the Alpine Inn, and the breakfast was wonderful. The waitress was super friendly, and the Banana Pecan pancakes were great. The place had a small-town / local cafe feel to it, and was neat to eat at on a Saturday morning. I would definitely recommend for breakfast if you're in the area.

We spent the day riding the Harley through the Black Hills in South Dakota. We stopped for lunch at the Hill City Café. It is pretty much a ma and pop place but don't let that fool you. We received great service and our party of eight were all smiling. I had the country fried steak which turned out to... More
