Great friendly service

We spent the evening hiking Harney Peak and were starving afterwards. Everything seem to be closed so when we called this place we expected them to say the same. Instead the lady happily replied that she had a crowd and "what's one more?" They were very friendly and we didn't feel rushed. My... read more

We pulled in for a bite to eat with modest expectations, but wow - this place was great. Would definitely eat here again. We ordered the ribs and a BBQ chicken sandwich. Nearly everything on the plate was homemade and delicious. The owner was friendly and very knowledgable about the area. If you're driving through Custer and looking for great... More

Its a bar that serves basic food. The fried mushrooms were good and they had a good selection of beer. They were very short staffed so service was slow but all around it was ok.

We enjoyed our meal here. I had the burger with the jalepeno popper on it and thought it was a great burger! Brought our small kids and they were welcome. Nice patio out front to enjoy on a nice day. The burgers were a little small, they give you the option to upgrade to a bigger patty, which I would... More

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
