Good food at very reasonable prices.

Great food, home cooked. Service is excellent. One of the owners greets each and every guest. A wonderful place to stop for locals and visitors.

The staff were quick to accommodate our party of 12, and service was quick and efficient. The food was very good, although not much was gluten free. The others in the party really enjoyed their Indian tacos. Very friendly, nice atmosphere.

This little cafe in Spearfish Canyon doesn't look like much but the food and service is awesome. Very friendly staff. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Historically this was a stage coach stop - nice little restaurant at a crossroads after coming through Spearfish Canyon. We loved the food, took home their famous carrot cake - unlike any you've eaten or will have again. I could have eaten it until I was sick, but we only had one piece. :-( Several of us had the Indian... More

We stopped here before traveling through Spearfish Canyon. Very convenient location at the Lead end. They have a good bit of unique gifts and apparel that you won't find in the other gift shops around Lea or Deadwood. It's worth a look....

We stopped here for lunch before we did the Spearfish scenic byway tour. It was small, but really cozy. Beautiful scenery surrounds it. We both had an Indian taco. SO GOOD. Loved the local atmosphere and large portions. My husband got a piece of the homemade carrot cake to go and said it was one of the best he has... More

We visited this place more than ten years ago and discovered the delicious Indian tacos. Apparently many others have also discovered this gem because the previously tiny restaurant has expanded greatly - - probably at least quadruple the size. But the food was even better than we remembered. The Indian Tacos are superb - - - probably the best meal... More

You haven't lived till you have tried their carrot cake which is the perfect way to top off your lunch or dinner!

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
