I couldn't come to South Dakota without having a buffalo burger and this was a good place to have one. Great view, average prices you'd expect.

We ate here prior to watching the laser light show. Our server was friendly even though it did take a little while to get our food. Prices are similar to other establishments in the area. My buffalo burger was good.

We'll worth eating there while at Crazy Horse especially since you will still be there for the Light Show. Very good food. Terrible service. They need to train their wait staff in the basics such as don't ask about dessert until all patrons have finished eating and they have cleared the dishes from meal.

We were at Crazy Horse rather late in the afternoon and, based on the recommendations we'd been given in Hill City, decided to eat at The Laughing Waters. The view of the mountain was great. Our server was friendly and efficient; beverages were refilled as needed. As it was late afternoon, the place was not crowded, we were only one... More

...and you won't go wrong. A little piece of deliciousness and worth the visit. Our server was fine, so I'm guessing we got one of the good ones. A nice accompaniment to our visit to Crazy Horse.

Visited in the off-season, so not too many people there. We were able to sit near a window overlooking the monument which was nice. The place was clean and the food ok. The Native American Taco was good as were the sweet potato fries. Patty Melt was just ok. Cost about $10/person for lunch. Avoid the coffee. I couldn't put... More
