Fabulous Setting/Great Carrot Cake!

So many good things to eat on the menu, you need to go more than once. The waitstaff is always friendly and they always help you with the puzzles on the table. The Broken Arrow is a must for breakfast and the Indian Fry Bread for lunch#

We visit the Black Hills every year & Cheyenne Crossing is always on our list of places we want to get back to! We were there in late October this year & so we called ahead to make sure they were still open & the hours they were open as they have modified hours during the off season. We were... More

For us it's a tradition to have breakfast at Cheyenne Crossing when we visit the Black Hills, and we visit every year. The place is a small building with big plates and great food. worth the trip

Don't understand the other reviews about this place. It is so dirty and owner(that is who he said he was) Said he didn't care if we liked food or not, he liked it and that is all that matters. Glad lots of people like it, but I will never stop here again

This restaurant is only ten minutes south of Spearfish Canyon Lodge so it's a great option (of very few) nearby if you are staying in the canyon. Not sure why is is listed as a Lead restaurant since it's not in Lead. Good service, yummy home style food in a quaint setting. Indian taco was great.

We stopped here for lunch, and I had a delicious pulled pork sandwich. The bun was lightly toasted which gave it a wonderful crunchy sensation along with tender pulled pork and tasty sauce. Afterward. a peach pie came with whipped cream on the side and a sprinkle of blueberries... delicious!

This is a "must do" when viewing the beauty of Spearfish Canyon! The sourdough pancakes, sweet rolls and side pork are not to be missed. Side pork tastes as if bacon kissed pork chops. It is highly addictive! Some things have changed since we last visited. The decor looks like your Grandma decorated it with lots of fake flowers and... More

We had guests from Springfield IL and driving through Spearfish Canyon, Rough Lock Falls stopping for lunch at the Cheyenne Crossin Restr was a "must do" on the list for quality of food, great friendly service and of course for the history of the facility. The tart for our guests was the Indian Fry Bread for dessert.
