We chose to eat dinner here because of the TA reviews and the recommendation from the lodge we were staying at. With a bill of $72 for just two adults (only one alcoholic drink), I expected tastier food. My husband ordered the prime rib and I ordered the parmesean halibut. The prime rib wasn't very tasty and it was fatty... More

The restaurant is part of the lodge (cabins) located just outside Keystone/Mt Rushmore area. it is worth the very short drive to get away from the noise & T-shirt shops along the main road to this more tranquil setting. The menu offers everything from steaks to local catch Walleye, full bar & delicious desserts.

We stopped here for a late lunch and found it to be great. I had a west coast burger (I believe is the name) and it was cooked well and was very flavorful. The fries won accolades from our entire group, they were great. The staff was attentive and helpful on even discussing the nearby attractions. Definitely recommend this place.

Most restaurants in Keystone are family style or buffets - which are not our style. We drove around a bit looking for other options and found the Powder House. The food was much more creative than we were expecting and the wine list was extensive and reasonably priced. It's a bit out of the way but worth the trip.

The restaurant has a rustic look and feel. The staff and menu are anything but rustic. The wine list is extensive and a good bargain. The drinks arrived as ordered and prepared perfectly. The food was absolutely wonderful. This restaurant is a true gem in a very touristy area.

We were at Mount Rushmore and trying to choose a place for dinner for our big group and saw the great reviews for this place. We had an enjoyable time visiting with family but service was a little slow even with 2 servers. I'm basing this review on my family's experience. I never got the appetizer that I ordered. The...

Some of the best food in the Black Hills! We all enjoyed our meal. Service was ok, they seemed very busy. Would recommend going anytime breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Great outdoor seating!

Powder House has been one of the best restaurants in Keystone for a long time. We ate there several times and every time it's been delicious. Our last experience wasn't very pleasant though. Our server seemed to be in a hurry every time she came to the table and yes they were busy , but there were other servers around... More
