Definitely a great find in a very small town. Service and staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed dining here and ended up returning next evening because of good food, good service and super friendly staff. All and all we would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a wonderful atmosphere.

Visiting SOUTH DAKOTA means trying buffalo meat. I ordered the buffalo prime roast and it was the best piece of meat I'VE had in a long time. Melt in your mouth medium rare and seasoned to perfection at a very reasonable price.

The food & atmosphere was great. Micro beer only 2.50 during happy hour. The staff is very friendly. Thank you!

We stopped for beers and they have a nice selection of local beer. I believe they have 25 taps and only a few are national brands

We've been on vacation for two weeks and eaten in some super cool resturants - from the outside Dark Horse looked like it was going to be another neat brew pub -- it was not. Food was average - and a bit expensive - my son got the shrimp and my husband the walleye - both were $20 each -... More

Was wanting a steak so I stopped in at dark horse. I had to be seated by the bus boy, only to have 3 waiters glance at my table and keep talking. After 10 mins my wife went to the bar to get service. A waitress finally came over and said they were very busy. We ordered ribeye steaks only... More

We had dinner there while on our vacation and had horrible service, seemed like the wait staff didn't have good direction from management or something. Had to repeat our order several times, took forever to get the drinks and good, won't go back. I will say the potato skins were good though. Place was hot too, they have some issues... More

Had family out eight on trip to Custer the attention of staff was very good and food was excellent. Had Reuben and first time I did not ask for sauce to be removed it was delicious. Everyone in my party enjoyed the food and the evening. Was also kid friendly and staff very sociable.

Stopped after -2 hours in the car looking for some good food. We ordered the 20 oz Cowboy steak…big disappointment. I raise and butcher beef so I know what a 20oz looks like. The steak we got was cooked as ordered, but only a 12 oz steak at best very disappointed. Suggestion go elsewhere.

They do have a great selection of beer, but the food is just average. The evening we went the place was empty. They really need to learn not to give instructions to their employees on how to sell the food while a customer is within earshot ... does not make for a good impression. As a customer we don't care... More
