Great Breakfast

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

Unfortunately have to order food & drinks to go in order to go outside. Food was good. Restaurant clean. Staff was friendly even when it was super busy at dinner time. Great stop after wildlife loop road and before Needles Hwy. Small gift shop also.

We stopped on our way from our Needles Drive in mid afternoon. The people were very nice, but it looked a little disorganized. When the food arrived my wife's Cobb salad was very good ad my chicken cheese melt with fries was served hot. The lake is beautiful but watch the shore for geese droppings. Hint: give your entire order... More

This charming little restaurant sits right beside Legion Lake in Custer State Park. The food was decently priced and very good! I had the turkey ranch melt with baked potato soup and coleslaw. The coleslaw was really good - was a mix between marinated and mayo style. My husband had the buffalo burger and he really liked it! We will... More

We stayed in one of the cabins and would walk down to the restaurant for breakfast. The egg sandwiches were delicious and filling. Pancakes were also good. They serve Starbucks coffee. The service was friendly.We did not get to try out lunch or dinner but I highly recommend them for breakfast.
