If you eat here you must do the mystery dinner. We do it about twice a year because it is pretty expensive, but worth every single penny. I've never been unhappy with what we've been served. We have never gotten the same thing ordering the mystery dinner. And I love it because I would never order any of the things... More

We loved the breakfast buffet that was included with our room at the Adoba. Eggs, crisp bacon, sausage, biscuits, gravy, French toast, fruit, and pastries. Juice, milk and coffee were also available. We did not eat lunch or dinner there but they had a crown every meal during our stay at the hotel.

My unenjoyable evening started in the Adoba Hotel's 445 Martini Lounge where I sat at the bar for a pre-dinner relaxing drink. That was very soon to turn into a very quick drink and leave. The two bartenders working on Friday June 26 were highly unprofessional. The one working the left side of the bar (bigger of the two) berated... More

This is located in the hotel we stayed at and the breakfast was so good. The choices were numerous and the wait staff very friendly. It is also very busy.

We received coupons for free breakfast at check in. This was a typical continental breakfast, but served in a nice restaurant. Juices, cereals, eggs, biscuits and gravy, etc. Adequate, but not outstanding.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I was disappointed to read you were less than enthused about our breakfast buffet, since it is so popular with our guests. We are one of only a handful of Rapid City properties that offers a full complimentary hot breakfast with eggs, bacon, sausage or ham, breakfast potatoes, french toast,... More

Enjoyed the omelet bar (free for guests), and watching breakfast made right in front of me. Good, friendly people in there, and a great day-starter.
