Food is low quality with high prices. Staff is snotty. It is very loud in the place. We did not enjoy our visit.

My family ate here on June 29 and July 1. The first night we sat in the main level dining area and I had a very tasty elk burger. We were also given a stack of local postcards and told to pick a couple. The second night we sat at a both in the bar area, and each booth had... More

We went here based on the good reviews. The rooftop was closed so we sat on the main dining room. It had no character or atmosphere. Very plane. I have to say the same for the food. I had the locally caught walleye. The way it was prepared and presented looked to be gourmet. It was nothing special. Pretty tasteless.... More

The food was average (the temp was warm but not hot) but the server was friendly and helpful. I would not return for the price.

We have been traveling around the country and eat out quite a lot. We have discovered that the Mid-West is still stuck in pretty much the "meat and potatoes" mentality and pretty much the same menu items everywhere you go. We were delighted to find Buglin Bull in Custer! It was a refreshing change from the usual Mid-West fare. Don't... More

This place was by far the best food we ate on our vacation in South Dakota. The food was excellent and the service was really great.

This is a great sports bar, and there is an attached resturant. We have only eaten in the sports bar side. They have private TV's in each booth. So we could watch exactly what we wanted and could see the whole game. The service was fast and the food was good.

We wound up coming here as the first place had a huge wait. Unfortunately this place also had a huge wait but we got in right away because we were willing to eat on the rooftop portion. Eating up there was fine although they seemed to make it sound like it wasn't all that great. The service was iffy and... More

Buglin' Bull is a brew pub with 4 tasty brews. We tried them all in the beer flight and then had a pint of our favorites. The 3rd floor patio is very comfortable and offers a great view of main street. Highly recommend.
