“Yet another mediocre, at best, meal in Hill City”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011 via mobile

We stayed in Hill City during the Sturgis rally and ate here one night. The meal was a few steps below bad buffet food and we are by no means gourmets. The steaks were all very overcooked ... rare coming out medium well. The chicken was microwaved, as were the baked potatoes. The salmon was so bland and so dry it was completely flavorless. The atmosphere was rustic but fine. The service was also lacking and we had to ask for drink refills every time we needed them.

“Terribly Disappointed!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2011

I was so terribly disappointed in our meal when we visited this last week. I used to live in Rapid City, SD and considered going to Chute Roosters as a treat.
I ordered the Buffalo tenderloin, ($22) which I was told was one of their specialties. I received a tiny, dried out, over-cooked piece of meat and a very small (and equally dried out) baked potato for my $22.
My wife ordered bourbon chicken breast. The meat appeared to have been boiled. It had no flavor, (other than the bourbon sauce) was dry and had a very unsettling texture. Her plate also included string beans which were certainly canned and seemed to have been cooked hours previously as they were grey and tasteless.
We stopped in at approximately 7PM, so I don’t know why the food was presented in such appalling condition
Our waitress was very nice, but disorganized. My wife ordered mushrooms with her dish, but never received them, even after asking the waitress twice after receiving her dish sans mushrooms. I don’t blame the waitress, but rather management. Our waitress stopped by several times to apologize for our issues, even bringing by a survey and telling us to be honest about our experience and the problems we had with our meal; however management never even bothered to stop by our table.

We enjoyed our meal while vacationing in the area. We had a party of 11 and the service and food were wonderful.
