Good food!

The food was good, we got the Dakota Buffalo Burgers and fries ... They were very tasty, the waiter was very nice, well groomed young man, and took care of us well. The guys that came out of the kitchen while we were eating had terrible appearances, it curved our appetite. But we were almost done... read more

They had really just opened for the season and were very short staffed and yet we were served one of the best burgers and onion rings we've had in a long time. New management so pay no attention to the old reviews. Kitchen manager and chef even took the time to come out and inquire about the food. We overheard... More

The chicken salad sandwich with homemade fries (even with skin on!) served promptly & courteously made being with friends a great celebration! Thank you Chef D!!!.

Good breakfast and great service. Interesting take on eggs benedict with southern style gravy that I enjoyed. Worth the stop.

The Railhead has new management with a new Executive Chef for 2015. What a difference! Last year the food was horrible so this is a big change. Nice simple menu with good selections. My meal was great. The new Chef came out and introduced himself and was very nice. I will eat here again as long as that new chef... More

Home cooked/affordable food. I had fried pickles for appetizer, portabella mushroom sandwich with an awesome garlic aioli sauce, excellent iced tea (I love good iced tea with a good meal), and bread pudding with a bourbon sauce. My fellow diners had prime rib, catfish and burgers. All of it Delicious! Can't wait to go back.

We stopped in the Railhead for a bite of lunch during a tour of the Mt. Rushmore area. Service was friendly and quite attractive, and the ambiance of a 1950s diner is delightful. The food isn't five star quality, but this isn't that kind of restaurant. It is a menu of simple dishes from a family establishment, and thats perfectly... More

Stopped here for lunch on our vacation to Mount Rushmore. Service was good. No complaints. Good for a quick bite. Would come here again.

I decided on this restaurant for one simple reason - it was open. The staff were really friendly and can't be knocked at all, and the food isn't bad. The buffet was basic and I would have expected a tad more choice (and it to be warmer) for the money $9.99 if I remember correctly. At least the coffee was... More
