Definitely above the grade for the area.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the Best Western up the road. We ate dinner here every evening we were in Keystone during our week-long visit to the Black Hills. Nothing else seemed to measure up. The food was outstanding with up-to-date menu items, as opposed to the usual tourist fare... read more

We stayed at Powder House lodge on our way back from Yellowstone. It was a great place for some downtime after a busy trip hiking and sightseeing. We went to Mount Rushmore one afternoon, but spent most of our stay in the cabin and at the outdoor pool. The restaurant was fabulous! We are there twice a day during our... More

I have eaten here many times and it has always been wonderful! I last ate here in July of 2013, but have been there many times before. My husband and I both agree that this place has the best food in all of the Black Hills area!

Stayed at the lodge and this onsite restaurant had great food. Came in the off season so it was closed for lunch, but breakfast and dinner were great.

One of the best steaks I've had in a long time. The Lodge was closing for the season the next day but you would never had know it by the quality service and excellent food.

Originally visited the Powder House Lodge back in '95 when a vendor who's a native SD told me about it. We visited per his recommendation and were not disappointed. We did indeed have the primed rib that night. Fast forward to 2014, bringing teenage daughters with us this time as well as travel companion family. We all agreed we wanted... More

We were a party of two couples. We stopped here for breakfast in route from Deadwood to Mt. Rushmore. This worked out great as the breakfast was outstanding. The servings were good size and the service excellent. Very pleased that we happened upon such a great place for breakfast.

First impressions were excellent. Beautiful location, facility, and ambiance. The wait staff was extremely professional. My impression was that the GM of the restaurant has managed high end facilities before. Unfortunately, that is where the positive impression ends. The food was below average at a reasonable price and down right poor at the prices they are charging. It is truly... More
