This place brings back childhood memories when my Dad used to smoke cigars. So I love going in even though I am not a smoker. The staff is always helpful so I can pick out the perfect smokes as a gift.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the selection of cigars expansive though frankly you can not beat their time house cigars. It's a great place to kick back and relax. If you come during the day, be sure to be on the lookout for my favorite 4 legged staff member. 10 out of 10 recommend and will keep coming back for more.

Awesome cigar joint. Great service. Great selection of tobacco. Great seating. Great place for sports viewing on one side, and great casual seating on the other. Just hands down one of the best cigar places I’ve ever visited anywhere. Awesome spirits and beer selection for those who prefer that. Could use a better nonalcoholic selection of sodas though. Otherwise a very excellent place.

While visiting Rapid City I learned of The Tinder Box and I went to have a nice cigar. The establishment met my expectations. There has a good selection of cigars at prices for every kind of consumer. The chairs were comfortable and it was quiet. A good place for contemplation and relaxation with a cigar. I wold recommend as it met my expectations.

This is an excellent place to sit, converse, read, enjoy a cigar or a pipe or a beer or glass of wine, people watch, and make a new friend. I did on my first visit.

Though I am a non-smoker, I always enjoy visiting the Tinder Box to buy special Xmas gifts for others. I really enjoy the smells inside this cozy store as it brings back childhood memories. Great little shop with a nice selection of cigars to meet everyone's tastes.

It's hard to believe a place like this exists in 2019. Sharply dressed, friendly staff and guests alike. At the same time, you are always welcome to "come as you are". Classy, elegant, and you can smoke fine tobacco with the enjoyment of knowing you're among pals. Exquisite decor, uplifting music, fabulous ventilation. One of my favorite spots in Rapid City.

Dear ancientkow, Thank you for our 5-bubble review. We are happy we are one of your favorite spots in Rapid City. Our business was conceived with the simple idea of customer service first and cigars second. So, when building the concept we tried to bring an upscale smoking experience to Rapid City. We appreciate your comments and your business! We hope to see you again soon, Caroline, Chris, Andy, Jon, Jimmie Lynn, Amy, Ethan and Frisker the cigar dog.

While visiting the area I decided to check out the Tinder Box. I was camping and so I needed some cigars for the late night campfires. I must say, I've been to many cigar lounges, but none like this. Incredible atmosphere and very friendly staff. The selections were good also. If you like cigars, or even if you don't, do yourself a favor and stop here. Even if it's only for 5 minutes, you'll be so glad you did. Grab a cigar or two and head out, or stay for a drink and a smoke. What a fantastic place!!
