As others before, we stopped here after a trip to Mount Rushmore. What a disappointment! First, with several tables open, the wait staff said it would be several minutes before we could be seated. Once we were seated, we overheard another wait person explain the reasons a young boy should not drink a diet cola because of the sugar substitute... More

A few friend and I stopped here on July 20 for lunch after visiting Mt Rushmore. Started out okay, short wait for a table although there numerous open tables available. Seated us at a booth for 6, there was 7 of us. Food was edible, nothing special. Flies were thick and we had to fight them for out meal. When... More

We stopped here on our way back from Mt Rushmore - we just arrived in South Dakota and I was attracted to the "BBQ" sign. So we gave it a try. I wanted BBQ chicken - They were out of white meat chicken when we got there - so I ordered the chicken strips... ummm... not great. They were the... More

We walked up from the Alpine slide. Chose to sit outside because it was a nice day and honestly cooler outside than inside. I had the Hawaiian pulled pork sandwich, my husband had the brisket Philly. Meat was dry, but they have good homemade sauce to help with that. Good flavor. Nice staff, and the couple that was sitting outside... More

We were starving after driving the Iron Mountain Road and this was the first restaurant we encountered going into Keystone. It's part of a big strip mall full of souvenir shops. The BBQ was okay, but a little pricey. We had to eat outside and fight the houseflies for lunch. (On our ten day trip, seemed like lots of restaurants... More

The food was good and had some great flavor. The kids led the wings and the brisket was good. The chicken sandwich was very dry, but the potato salad and baked beans made up for it. You might have to fight the flies for your food. The place could be cleaned and the staff needs a smile. Won't eat here... More

Food is way OVERPRICED and not that good, plus it gave me the runs. The waitress was fighting with the cook and rude to other customers. Flies were everywhere.To call this place BAD is an understatement it was TERRIBLE. Please don't make the same mistake as I did. Go elsewhere, your wife, kids, wallet, self respect and colon will thank... More

We had beef brisket and BBQ on a wonderful bun. The kids had chicken strips and hand-cut homemade fries. The potato salad was wonderful! Service was great and we all left full. It was a bit pricey, but it seemed like everything in Keystone was overpriced. For 2 kids and 1 adult meal, it was $55, not including tip.
