This stop was a last minute evening visit. We had no sea when the light show would go on so got there an hour too early. The gate attendant indicated food was available. When we entered the museum and gave the lady our ticket, she mediate my advised the restaurant was closing at 8 PM and we would need to... More

This place is at the base of the Crazy Horse Memorial and is a part of the museum/gift shop complex. The food was good. Not great, but good. Surprisingly, the prices were pretty reasonable. Usually, these tourist-trap type places are over-priced. The service was a little slow but, that was because we were there after Labor Day and they were... More

Really not very good food. The view of the monument is phenomenal, but my daughter and I were both ill in about two hours from the meal.

The food was very good. I ordered the buffalo stew, everyone else ordered a hamburger, it was all good. Service was great. Great view of the mountain.

After our trip to crazy horse, found that the restaurant was closed (Special event) ? So went without the Buffalo soup, researched the menu online and had my order ready. The attraction was great. But have a plan B ready just in case.

After our awesome visit at Crazy Horse Memorial, we decided to eat lunch at this restaurant on-site. The hostess told us to come back in 20 minutes and she didn't take down our name or assign us a number. There was still available seating inside. We resorted to going next door to their snack shop and ate there. They have... More

The service is mediocre, the food is mediocre, the prices aren't too bad so why not. The view is good!

Actually it was the only real choice at Crazy Horse but a good one none the less. Good food, reasonable prices. Ask for the quiet dining room. Or at least just tell them that you prefer a quieter area. It was late July and there were plenty of kids around, some louder than others. We did get a table in... More

This restaurant is located right in Crazy a horse memorial. By the time we got there, the rush was long gone. The server was very pleasant, but our order took forever. Not sure why since my sweet fries were cold. My husband ordered their bison stew and can tell it was sitting around for awhile. My daughter gad the chicken... More
