Not as bad as reviews! And I'm gf!

So this was the ONLY place in town we could find open, other than Pizza Hut and this one doesn't have the gluten-free pizzas. I was soooo reluctant based on the reviews but we were too side-tracked with all the attractions around the area so we were very late with dinner. Service wasn't awesome but... read more

The place is dirty, my wife's beer was luke warm, and our food was horrible. No ordered the ribeye steak which I was told was from South Dakota, I ordered it medium, and it came well done. Worse yet, the steak had a tainted taste. After complaining the took it off the bill. But it was too late, for the... More

Lots of different beers, but the food ( and service) sucks! I suggest you go someplace else. What a shame , I used to like this place.

We were drawn in by the exterior, BIG MISTAKE. We should have followed our initial plan to walk the length of the main street before selecting, but we were hungry. The food was horribly dry and pricing for what you got. The service was very slow, even though they weren't busy. Would not return!

We ate here one night while staying Custer. We thought it was okay. It's more of a bar and grill than a restaurant. They do have a kids menu and my youngest was happy with his meal. None of us were displeased with our food although the total bill was a bit pricey. Service was okay. I didn't find the... More

First the waitress dropped our drinks, the bill was incorrect, the salad with our main course was one leaf of lettuce and it's not really cheap. Don't go there!!

Good location but food was not good Ordered salad and a burger. Salad tasted like it came out of a bag. Burger very dry. Not the cleanest place.

I didn't like this place the minute we walked in. Hard to describe, just funky and depressing. We passed a busy restaurant to go upstairs to the Dark Horse. Surprised when we walked in at dinner time and it was nearly empty. The server was nice, but it seemed like he didn't know anything on the menu. Bad sign. My... More
