Best Pie EVER!

I love this pie so much when I was in Custer I have a friend in the area send them all the way to me in CALIFORNIA! If you are in the area, you HAVE to try their amazing hand made pies! So good! Ok, I am going to go have my friend send me another one right now! :)

I love stopping in at this place when I travel thru Custer. The ice cream is delicious. Iif you want a little more have that ice cream on a warm piece of pie. What I wish was that the set up in here was more stream line. Currently you must stand in line in the "dinning" room to get to... More

This place has the most AMAZING pies, I could live off of them. Great atmosphere, and I find it really nice that every time I go in there I am greeted by Bob and Kat's (owners) smiling faces and they are always so friendly. The staff is also great and for how crazy busy it gets they always have great... More

Small portions at high costs. Pie was good, nothing I would pay the high prices for. The pie place attracts because of the unique style of the building. One trip was enough.

I am surprised that you found our portions small. Everyone says that the pies are so much larger and better than the previous owners, and the food with it foot long prime dips, chicken pot pies larger than Marie Calenders, 30 oz shakes, and over sized scoops of ice cream are a great value from when Reetz's PPP. I am... More

Every time I go to Custer, I aim to have a slice of their amazing rhubarb pie. They warm it and put ice cream on it. The best treat EVER. I also ate lunch their once, no expecting much from a pie place, but it was really great! I hardly had room for my favorite pie! This is a must... More

Good selection of pie and ice cream. Always busy and always good. No trip to Custer is complete unless you stop here for a treat.

It was fantastic - it was crisp, tasty and fresh. We had to split a piece and get it to go to eat later because we had too much dinner at the burger place. But it was so worth it! Wanted to try many more pies and ice creams, but one can only do so much in a day.

Based on the fantastic reviews, we decided we had to try this place, given that we were staying in Custer. We were enthusiastically not disappointed! The pie was fantastic! I had a kind of pie that the restaurant called Bumbleberry pie, I believe. My spouse had apple pie. Both slices of pie were delicious, and we definitely recommend this place... More
