“It doesn't get any better than this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Let me start off by saying we were sold on this place before we even got there. We have a very picky eater and she wanted a hotdog for dinner. The folks at Crow Peak Brewing suggested Killian's to us for a good burger. My husband called Killian's to see if they offer a hotdog on their kid's menu. He spoke to the owner, Nick. Nick told my husband that they normally do not offer a hotdog, but if that is what it would take to get him to come in and try a burger, he would personally walk across the street, buy hotdogs and cook one for our daughter. DONE!

We left Crow Peak and went straight to Killian's. Our waitress was Katie and she was terrific. We told her about the phone conversation with Nick and she said, "Great. No problem!" We ordered the eggplant dip with sweet potato chips, the Black, Bleu and Peppadew Burger, the Cowboy Classic and the hotdog. The food was delicious. The service was wonderful and Nick is a hero. If you are in Spearfish, do yourself a favor and go to Killian's. You will not be disappointed! And Nick, THANK YOU!!

“Yes in Deed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Came in around 1:45 on a weekday. Not crowded. I was looking for pub food. This turned out to be the place. The wait staff was friendly. We had the local dark beer and the bangers and mash. It hit the spot. One order will work for two people. If I travel thru this area again I would make it a stop on my way. Well done!!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

We stopped here with some friends who are just as picky eaters as ourselves.
Everyone was pleasantly surprised.

They served Sushi, since it was Friday, and it was fresh and very nicely done.

Everyone is our part ordered a steak and everyone's steak was cooked just perfect. I know the chocolate and pepper steak sounds weird, but try it! It's awesome!

Even the two year old had Mac n' Cheese that was so good she actually ate it without being her two year old self.

We ll eat here again ;)
