Enjoyed dinner at this place in May. Service was attentive and quick. The steak and buffalo were cooked to perfection. Presentation was appetizing. Greeted by several staff members when arriving and leaving. Extensive wine list for those interested in having wine with meals. Casual dress is welcomed. Give this place a try. They serve all three meals.

I ate here with my sister and daughter a couple of days ago during our vacation to South Dakota . It was on the list of best restaurants in Keystone. Granted, that's a short list, but the food was good. I had the buffalo burger and it was a generous size and tasty. My sister had the fish sandwich and... More

It's situated on the road between Keystone and Grand Rapids alongside the Powder House Lodge. Great homely welcome when I arrived - almost like they knew me. Very attentive polite waitron -... More

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. I had the Chicken Cordon Bleu two out... 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.
