Keystone is the tourist spot at the base of Mt Rushmore. If you walk the boardwalk this is a good place to take a seat - inside or outside. It's kitschy period and exactly what you want on this kind of trip. The food was quite good - I had the ribeye. The house Chardonnay was a little sweet. But... More

We read some really horrible reviews of this restaurant and ate there twice last week. When we first arrived we expected the worst and were very pleasantly surprised by the attentive service, the reasonable prices, and the wholesomeness of the food. We had bison steak, bison stew, salads , a bottle of wine all very decently prepared and presented. This... More

We ate lunch/dinner here after going to Mt. Rushmore. I had the Buffalo Ribeye Steak cooked medium and it was Great. My son ordered the grilled trout and it was not good. Very dry. The waitress promptly ask him if he would like something else and took it off the bill without being asked to do so. I was impressed... More

It is really pretty in the restaurant and feels elegant but you can feel comfortable going dressed casually. Service was great from both the dining waitress and the bar waitress from the bar next door. Just a note - you must pay (and tip) separately but not a big deal. My son and I had the buffalo burgers and fries... More

We loved the saloon feel and the cocktail waitress outfit. Service was very good, almost too fast (rushed). Food was just average but large selection. Kid friendly

We have eaten here multiple times and have always had good meals and great service. The old saloon decor goes well with the area and makes for entertaining viewing while waiting for your food. The menu is varied. Some things are overpriced, but it is a tourist area.

If you want a good meal, other than pizza and/or hamburgers, there are not many places to eat in Keystone. The Ruby House is one of the good places. In July, or possibly other summer months, the flies are everywhere, and a good fly swatter will add to the meal and the entertainment.

We had a late lunch here recently. The menu had lots of variety. The beer was excellent. We had an appetizer with battered onion rings, vegetables, mozzarella--it was huge and tasty. I had a veggie wrap. It too was very large with lots of veggies. It had a little too much mayo for my taste but this might be how... More
