We had lunch and breakfast here and were not disappointed. Good service and good suggestions from the staff. Clean, nice surroundings with quick service and quick food to the table. Always good traits when traveling.

We always camp at the Legion Lake Campground when we're at Custer State Park. We've eaten here often through the years. It's a good solid place to dine. The Breakfast Quesasilla was great and eggs, hashbrowns, toast and sausage was good as well. Coffee and service both wonderful. I understand it's going to be rebuilt this next year. I'll be... More

Biscuits and Gravy and omlets were very good and fill you up for a day of adventures in the beautiful state parks. Small menu but good service and good coffee.

We had breakfast here one morning during a stay in the park. They have a nice selection, and the portions were large and very tasty.

We had a nice breakfast in this casual diner. We opted for full service. It looked like coffee and pasties were also available to go. There is a small general store connected to the diner.

Stopped for breakfast. Food was very good. Service was very good. Price was fair. We were there early morning and the place was empty, but by the time we left, it was filling up. Go early and enjoy the quiet and good food.

Cheerful, friendly service in this casual dining spot. The food was basic American fare, much enjoyed by our crew of hungry hikers. It cost about $40 for a family of 3 to have appetizers, drinks, lunch and tip.

We ordered the turkey sandwich and a reuben. Reuben arrived with no sauerkraut or dressing. Turkey sandwich had a bit of turkey on huge slices of bread without the described cheeses, bacon or bbq sauce. Returned both sandwiches to the kitchen, same sandwiches came back, reuben did have the kraut and dressing, turkey sandwich had one of the cheeses, the... More
