Great outdoor places

Long, long wait for food, even when uncrowded. Reasonable prices, average food. Easy location. Though I try this restaurant every year, I give up. I went somewhere else the remaining days of my trip.

Very much a dive cafe which is okay but it didn't feel clean to me. Prices were high for the type of place it was. Across the street from Evans Plunge. I couldn't get past the "decor" of Dales and choose not to eat there and opted for a hot dog at Evans Plunge instead. Just didn't get a good... More

Yup, it's a small town dive cafe. Service was quick & friendly. Ate here twice. One days special was meatloaf & mashed potatoes - it really was good.

Dirty just plain dirty we saw lots of cars while driving through Hot spring SD and said what the heck looks like a booming place. Well it is packed but just about the dirtiest place I've ever been to. I tried to get past it but I couldn't. I guess if you live here you have learned to accept it.... More

It was okay food and a bit pricey. I had a buffalo burger and fries. Not the best burger patty. Waitstaff could work on friendliness.

When you first walk in you may not be sure about it when you see "Stuff" for sale hanging everywhere... lots of NRA & veteran & Sturgis. Service was quick & friendly & it was definitely a place where the locals go. Small salad bar but things were very tasty. I especially liked their broccoli salad.

We ate breakfast at Dale's for the first time last year when we were in Hot Springs for our vacation. The food was pretty dang good but our waitress seemed to be really hating her job. Did her job just fine but not a very personable soul. Fast forward to our 2015 vacation. We definitely wanted to have at least... More

Nice little local eatery. Coffe shop, relaxed casual atmosphere. Food was good. Service good. Unremarkable but totally acceptible for a quick bite on the way through town.

Stopped for lunch on our way to the Mammoth Site in Hot Springs. The pot roast and mashed potatoes with gravy were just like my grandmother used to make. Salad bar was plentiful and included soup. The pies looked awesome! Very good family restaurant.

Basic tables, but good service and reasonable menu. Not licensed so no beer. Simple, but hearty food. We went for dinner, but seems more geared up for breakfast.
