Friends had highly recommended this restaurant, so we went here for lunch during a basketball tournament our son had in Spearfish. We were able to see beautiful scenery on our route to the restaurant and enjoyed a terrific meal of Indian Tacos and the most spectacular desserts! All homemade! The carrot cake is to die for! The employees were very... More

Whether traveling up Spearfish Canyon or down from Lead, Cheyenne Crossing is a great spot to stop for a sandwich, Indian Taco or a piece of pie. It's not a large place and wait times can be long during the summer and fall; however, we were seated immediately. The waitress was friendly and efficient. Always enjoy the puzzlers that are...

We visited here for a late breakfast on a recent Friday and were the only ones in the restaurant for at least 30 minutes which meant we had undivided and excellent attention. Their menu does a great job of telling you what they're famous for - so I snuck in a sourdough/buckwheat pancake in lieu of toast and MAN was... More

Cheyenne Crossing started off as a stage coach stop for the Deadwood-Cheyenne Stage back in the 1870's. Now it is a great 'local' place to stop for a meal or a slice of their famous pies. The portions are enormous and the quality high. The breakfasts (my favorite) are excellent. It's located at the crossing of H-385 to Lead/Deadwood and... More

The food is very good and the staff congenial. I like the rustic appearance. There is a lot to do in the area.

While traveling to Sturgis this past year, we stopped in for lunch before heading down Spearfish Canyon. I had heard good things about it. Nice rustic appeal on the inside and convenient at the corner of Hwy 85 and State 14A Spearfish Canyon turn-off. We were seated by the kitchen doors even though there were several tables open elsewhere in... More

Anytime we are by Deadwood we try and get here. My husband has breakfast with the buffalo sausage and sour dough pancakes and I have the Indian Fry Bread Taco, which absolutely divine!
