If you love a good pie, as i do, this is a must if you are in the area. We stopped in based on the reviews here and were not disappointed. The sandwiches were good, but the pie was the draw! We had strawberry rhubarb, which seems to be their specialty, and it is served warm from the oven with... More

We stopped late afternoon 4 ice cream & pie; ice cream was Blue Bunny- lots of flavored 2 chose from & my husband had homemade cherry pie. Line moves quickly, lots of help & Bob runs the register. My husband is a "pie expert" & gave it a big thumbs up.

Not impressed with the rude staff. The man at the register (I assume he is the owner) acted like we were inconveniencing him with our presence. Not to mention the fact that this "Pie Place" had a very small selection of actual pie. You can get better selection at Perkins. The rhubarb pie was ok, nothing special.

I had staff issues the day you visited and because of that several of our employees were interrupting me while I was trying to count change. I was not on my game that day and apologize if I came across rude. We have an assorted selection twelve pies which are baked fresh everyday including peanut butter pie and several cream... More

We stopped here when we saw the fun purple and pink painted exterior. My daughters loved the ice cream and also the purple pig on the porch. My husband and I both enjoyed the rhubarb pie. Delicious! It's a must stop when visiting Mount Rushmore!

Cute place! Busy parking lot so we figured it had to be good, right? No. It was GREAT! The French dip was seriously delish! Large portion too. The kids liked the mac and cheese. Of all things, my son raved about the roll! The cherry pie was out of this world! My only regret is that we didn't stop here... More

Had a very nice lunch here. My teenage boys enjoyed the chicken pot pie which was the special of the day. I had the chicken salad sandwich recommended by the waitress and it was delicious. We topped of our lunch with some delicious pie. I had the strawberry rhubarb a la mode...yummy! My kids opted for the ice cream and... More

Easy to find in the purple building. The place itself is really cute and the pies are delicious. We tried the rhubarb and the bumbleberry and both were excellent. The bumbleberry was so good that we returned and bought a whole pie to take with us. Would highly recommend visiting the Purple Pie Place while in the Custer area.

We stopped in for some pie and ice cream after a day of hiking in Custer State Park. The place has a nice selection of different pies and ice cream with ample sitting inside and out. The portions of pie are a very nice size and the pie is heavy! I commented and the gentlemen behind the counter brought a... More

Loved the outside of the building and figured we would give this fun looking place a try. Good lunch time selection of sandwiches and such. Very tasty food. And very good service as well. They had a raspberry rhubarb jalapeno pie on their menu, so had to give it a try :) Plus it was recommended by a couple that... More
