Ordered a medium rare sirloin and it came medium. Should have sent it back as it was pretty dried out but had decent flavor and quite tender. The wild rice mix was ok, maybe 20% wild rice and the rest brown or something similar. Could have used a few mushrooms or celery bits to spruce it up a bit. Service... More

Pretty fair here. It lacks the useless superlatives of the 5 star reviews and avoids the whiny nonsense prevelant in the 1 and 2 star numbers. I'd say this reviewer is spot on and we thank him for the evaluation. New menu soon. I'll see if these items can be addressed. Hail Caesar my man... Robert Joseph peppermill@threeriver.net More

Had the Sandhills Fried Fish Dinner. My husband had the Chicken Fried Steak. He said the meat was so tender you could cut it with a fork. Melted in his mouth. Fish was great. Homemade Ranch Dressing for salad. Everything cooked to perfection. Great service.

I'll be back for sure! The steak was amazingly cooked to perfection. Moderately priced, but when food is good prices aren't a problem!

At the fish dinner with baked potato and salad. VERY GOOD! Large portion. More than I could eat. Breading on fish good and not too thick. Enjoyed meal. Excellent service.

Steak every way you can imagine! Even prime rib nachos! Filet, Ny strip,and rib eye all approved. Also had their award winning burger no complaints but you must like meat to enjoy this venue.

The entrees are large and you can still make a meal of the appetizers. Adult beverages are top shelf and the micro brews available are tasty and cold. A great place for cocktails and dinner afterward with a significant other or group!

Sharyl was our waitress tonight, she was wonderful. Her suggestions/recommendations were right on. We had the best steak we have had in as long as we can remember! The potato, mushrooms, salad and drinks were over the top and we will actually consider driving 5 hours to eat here on a regular basis! Thank you! Peggy Bush Peggysb2003@msn.com :)

We had dinner at the Peppermill tonight, and it's no wonder that it is the number one restaurant in Valentine. We were greeted cheerfully by a hostess who saw us to our booth and chatted. But I guess she really was a server because she was our server for the evening. Sheryl was a real addition to our meal. We... More

Popped in after a meeting. Had the beef tips and fries. Friend had the steak nachos. Both were huge and flavorful. It's a great place to grab a beer or a full meal.
