Always have a good meal here and the decor is unique. Cost for a family meal here will be a little on the high side but very good food.

This restaurant tries to create the feel of an1890's western saloon and features, mostly, beef dishes. The food was reasonably good, if somewhat overpriced. One strange feature was that the restaurant and bar were separate entities, with separate bills.

I was really surprised that a restaurant on the main drag in such a "tourist town" offered more than location and ambiance. I had the best steak I've ever had in this restaurant. The decor is created with a variety of antique items. Some years ago, the lower end of main street, including the Ruby House, in Keystone was vandalized... More

Stopped in after a long long day of traveling and sight seeing. Parked and walked up to this area. The looks were appealing as the smells of deliciousness triggered our taste buds as we read the outside menu. We were very satisfied with our choice. I ordered the Bison Steak which melted in my mouth. The Service was excellent and... More

I enjoyed the old town feel of the Ruby House. The food was very good and they had a bar attached to the restaurant. Our family enjoyed eating here.

Its a great place to walk into if you want a look at a traditionally styled saloon complete with some amazing photos and furniture. Wait staff are all dressed for the part as well which makes it a great experience for something different. The food was ok - but very fatty and not great cuts of meat. Most everyone around... More

One is impressed by the high ceilings and the wild west decor, predominately in red. The menu is filled with American favorites and moderate prices. We really enjoyed our meal and certainly can recommend the Ruby House Restaurant to other travelers visiting Keystone.

Keystone is a strip mall a honky tonk souvenir and little snack shops catering to the tourists heading to Mt Rushmore a few miles away. This full service sit down place is very good --right on the main Winter 16A street we walked from our motel--friendly staff, above average food and you can get wine, beer or cocktails from the...
