Very good food

a little on the the higher end price wise but some of the choices are well worth the cost, the wild boar osso buco for example, very very tasty

Usually the only place open in the winter months. Buffalo is on the menu along with the typical American cuisine. Great bar area!

We had lunch here while in Custer, SD. It was a very nice atmosphere, with good service and very good food. I had a buffalo burger and my wife had beef tips. Both were very good. I would recommend stopping here to eat while in Custer.

The Buffalo Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms are amazing! They also have a great drink menu including their delicious home brews. Our waitress was friendly, and though my burger was overdone the atmosphere and enjoyment made up for it. The Monte Cristo and Pulled Pork sandwich were favorites. I would definitely go back!

I always enjoy Sunday morning during the winter time at the Bull. Brad makes a great omelette and you can order pancakes or French toast along with the full buffet. It's a great place to chat with locals.

Ate there my last night in Custer. A great find! Ate in the bar section, which has tall tables, as well as booths with their own tvs that you control! How clever! Had a great drink and an awesome steak. Would definitely eat there again. I also bought a Buglin' Bull t-shirt. Very cool and a great meal.

This is a combination Sports Bar and restaurant. The restaurant part is in a separate room, and we did not experience that. The bar portion has booths with individual televisions so you can call up the game of your choice. We were eager to watch the political debates, so we reserved a booth and they were most accommodating. When the... More

Good burgers in a local sports bar. Enjoyed the wine and beer flights, but the service could have been better. Overall worth a visit.

This restaurant looked like an obvious choice for five hungry cyclists as we rolled into Custer. It has a nice storefront and a good location. The restaurant was not busy whatsoever when we arrived, but they had no seating for 5 available. Four of us climbed into a small high top booth, and the fifth pulled over a vacant nearby... More
