We loved the food and Toby was very helpful in pointing out things to do in the area. We recommend the trio of meat appetizer kabob consisting of elk, bison, venison. Something for everyone on the menu!

The restaurant had a varied menu to satisfy all tastes. Also had a very nice kids menu. The food and service were excellent and the only negative I would have to say was that due to the fact that it was the busy tourist season we did feel a little rushed with dinner in as much as the plates were...

I ate here after visiting Mount Rushmore. I had been advised to make reservations and did so. I wanted to try something different so ordered the "game sampler". It included bison ribs, bison sausage, mixed-game sausage, and an elk steak. Price was about $25. The ribs were very good although I would have preferred the sauce on the side. I... More

The motel we stayed at recommended this restaurant as one of the best places in the area. Being right outside of Mt. Rushmore, I expected an edible meal with a few choices but never expected the great food and service that we received from this restaurant. The meals were cooked to order, large portions, many choices, great variety with an... More

The menu is extensive and we were all happy. I recommend the Fisherman breakfast - eggs with trout - the coffee... More

Powder House Lodge is the only real "foodie" restaurant we found near Mt. Rushmore. Most of the other places we ate at were very average. This place definitely tries to offer a much more unique and interesting menu. We didn't like everything we ordered but were happy to at least try some new things and take a break from the... More

What a surprise! We were willing to accept OK wholesome food, but were treated to amazing, tender and tasty dinner offerings. The server Morgan was a lovely and warm young lady who added to the ambiance.

This is a great place to eat. It is rustic and very clean. The service is wonderful. All of our meals were very good, and the variety is also very good. The prices are reasonable.
