Not very Timely

We were leaving a hotel adjacent to this restaurant and thought we would stop there for a quick breakfast. We stood in the lobby for about 5 minutes. This doesn't sound like a long time, but when you are standing there, it is. There was one person cooking and that is all the staff we saw. There... read more

Might be the worst meal we ate in South Dakota. Try the gas station instead. We all had burgers, which should not be hard to screw up. Just take my money. Won't return. It was close to our Hotel, and recommended - yeah...no.

We were recommended to this restaurant by our hotel. When we walked in we were seated fairly quickly but service declined from there. The young man who helped us seemed like he normally didn't wait on tables, and once he got us started it was like the waitress who was there was supposed to take care of us (I think... More

Would not go back. Upon entering restaurant which was pretty empty, we stood at counter and had to wait to even be acknowledged. Then when the girl asked how many and we told her, she handed us the menus and said we could just find a seat ourselves. Ok. The waitress we had was very personable and did come and... More

I had the Holy Terror Burger. Even though I asked for no onions it still came with them. The hot sauce was sweet which I found weird and the fries tasted frozen. The service was a little slow but not horrible. My waitress was friendly but the other was on her phone when I walked up and just looked at... More

Accessible from the “Famous 1880 Boardwalk,” the long, narrow Railhead Family Restaurant is connected to the Mount Rushmore’s White House Resort and serves as the motel restaurant. The White House Resort is a very nice motel, and we’re glad we stayed there. The Railhead Restaurant offers mediocre food and service at inflated prices, and we’re sorry we ate dinner there....

Stopped in because it was next to our hotel. They should be ashamed! Poor selection. High prices. Food looked like unappealing. We left and never came back.

Skip this restaurant. Strange menu and limited choices. What they do serve is bland and tasteless.Lots of other choices in town.

Says they have buffet in promos....hit n miss. Terrible service and very poor food quality. Go elsewhere. This used to be a prime place to eat but has fallen into very poor disrepair and quality.
