We have family in this area, and always enjoy dining at the Branding Iron. Steaks are excellent. Servers are pleasant!

I do wonder about some of the other reviews. Do they really know what a great steak or burger tastes like??? service was good and atmosphere fine clean but food is just ok. I'd love to find a place that I could say was great locally.

A friend and I drove to Devils Tower from Rapid City for the day. It was after one-thirty when we left and we were looking for a place for lunch. We passed through many tiny towns which either had no café or they were closed Monday. We grew hungrier and then we drove into Belle Fourche 😀. I pulled in... More

Our service was really good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our prime rib was really good. Our sides and salads were ok. They put cream gravy on mash potatos ordered with steak. Kind of odd. The baked potatoes were under cooked. The ranch dressing is not good. But our prime rib was excellent.

Came along with two friends for dinner. Unfortunately being a vegan there wasn't much on the menu for me (was able to get a few sides) and more importantly a beer (and had two "local-ish" ones to choose from. Waiter was very friendly and service was rather quick.

The Branding Iron is located conveniently off Hwy 85 with lots of parking. The menu leans heavily to beef! The menu says 'best tips in town' referring to a regional favorite: steak tips. They were salty and a little soggy so they didn't really live up to the hype. Not a very big portion of fries with the dinner portion... More

Great service friendly atmosphere, the food was great, the steak was cooked perfect, I am used to paying for a good steak so the price didn't bother me a bit, $52.00 for 2 Ribeye dinners I thought that was very reasonable!

This is the best place in the area to drink and has the best atmosphere. I didn't have any food, so I can't tell you what that is like, but if you are looking for a low-key locals place with good music on the weekends, I highly recommend it. I was shocked I only paid $4 for a jack and... More

Service was great and friendly. My husband and I had the Prime Rib Dinner and both his steak and mine were cooked to our specifications. Our kids had the burgers and they were also very good. Very reasonably priced for the prime rib too. Thanks guys!

The food was tasty and decent quality but we all ordered the prime rib and it was served very thin and not rare as ordered. Loved the seasoning. Drinks were good, especially one of their local micro-brewery beers, if you're in to those. Otherwise, average bar selection and wait staff very friendly and accommodating. Ambience was fun and fitting for... More
