Stopped here with family only after the Black Hills Burger and Bun company was standing room only for lunch and then again dinner service. Not a ton of choices in Custer in terms of variety. Saw this was rated #13 out of #35 or something and decided to give it a shot. We walked in and it was empty.....never a... More

Got in town after 9pm on a Saturday night and every other place that we stuck our heads into was either closing or closed. Not so the Frontier Grill, and we were immediately invited inside when I asked if we could still get dinner. French onion soup was to die for, not the traditional kind with bread and gloppy cheese,... More

Traveling to Custer State Park, didnt see many optioms to eat in Custer. Burgers were so so, service was great. But we could bring our dog to dine with us so we were happy.

Welcomed our dog on the patio. We enjoyed our dinner without worrying about leaving our dog. That is very helpful when traveling with a dog.Waitress was very helpful with tips about what sights to see. Would recommend this restaurant especially if you are traveling with a dog.

I dont understand the other reviews. I do not see how their food is good or great. It's ok. It's not the best burger in town by any means. They are frozen patties that you can buy at a grocery store. The tater tots were tasty and that's about it. Service lacked.

We arrived with a group of about 40 motorcycle riders. Speed of service was an issue but I don't think they were prepared for our group. So, I think the organizer of the event may need to provide a "heads up" next time. Our server was polite and friendly. The kitchen staff were likely a little overwhelmed. We'll make a... More
