We ate dinner here and we each had a hamburger and enjoyed it. The price was good and the interior was nicely decorated. We ate there because it was within walking distance to our hotel.

Meal was okay but not up to what we expected from reviews. We did not try their desserts. Service was average.

I was actually going to go to a pub for dinner but a local suggested going here instead. I was a little tentative since they were doing major road construction right in front of the place, but figured I take a shot. Sat at a booth since i wasnt sure if there was a bar of not.

We had a very friendly and helpful server. My dad had liver and onions and absolutely loved it. Sweet potato fries were great. I had chicken quesadilla, it was great. The chicken and French fries on the kids meal was very good. We had to save room for dessert. Everything was excellent!

Food was fine, drinks were pricey. Server was ok at best. I think it would probably be a better stop for breakfast than it would be for dinner like we did.

We went for breakfast and then a day later for dinner. Both meals were wonderful. We ordered off the Bargain Bob's breakfast menu so it was reasonably priced. For dinner, some had steaks and pastas, but I went with one of the daily specials - locally caught trout. It was good! Prices were no better or worse than an Applebees... More

My husband and I went here as part of our honeymoon. Yes, it is a bit expensive, but in our opinion it was worth it: the food was delicious, and the wait staff took exemplary care of us.

Restaurant right next to our motel. Having breakfast before the days travel. Meal okay but a little greasy. Prices okay, a little high on some items. All in all good place to start your day.

We were told this was one of the best places in rapid city but we were not expecting to spend that much money. The food was good but not worth the amount of money we ended up paying.
