What a restaurant. Huge menu with many choices. The hamburger is huge. It didn't fit the bun. And delicious. The Fry Bread taco salad was wonderful. You don't leave there hungry!

“Not Too Loud of a Bugle”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We had dinner at this restaurant and the food was average or even below average and the service was about the same. Will choose a different place to have dinner the next time we are in Custer.

“Walked out”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

We went on a week night in Custer's off season, 2 adults and 2 kids under 10. Less than 1/4 of the tables were filled so they were not very busy. The bartender seated another couple that walked in ahead of us then returned to the bar to wash glasses. We stood in the door area by the "Please wait to be seated" sign for several more minutes until a waiter asked if we were waiting for a table and said he'd be back. He returned shortly--the bartender still washing glasses where he can plainly see us--and we were seated. However, the same waiter then returned to the dining room 3 times over the next 20 minutes without ever returning to our table. First, he brought drinks to another table and cleared their dirty drink glasses. On the second trip he cleared dirty plates and asked that table if they'd like more drinks. On his third trip--keep in mind he's close enough we can hear the entire conversation--he brought appetizers to another table and cleared more dirty glass/plates. Another waitress also came to a nearby table took an order and ignored our attempts to ask for her help. After being in our seats for over 20 minutes without even being offered a glass of water we left, walking by the bartender who was unconcerned about our departure, and went elsewhere to eat. It is unfortunate because the location is great and the bar area has a neat atmosphere but there is so obviously NO training of the wait staff and poor management. If I could give the service a zero it would not be low enough. Can't comment on the food or its value since we didn't have any!

“Good food, good atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We liked it there. Were there 3 times during our stay in Custer and felt like friends when the waitress greeted us and talked to us after the second time. Burgers were great, staff very friendly and the atmosphere exactly what we were looking for. Live music on the upper deck at the weekend was fun too.
