My wife, sister-in-law, and I dropped in on the recommendation of someone we met locally the night before. We weren't in the mood for alcohol, so I regret not trying some of the beers. I did have the BLT and fries and the unsweetened iced tea. I was delighted by the simple meal gone good. Kudos to the sandwich maker.... More

Came with the kids for a later supper. Very nice waitress. Had several appetizers, kids chicken tenders, and shrimp dinner. All good! Their supreme nachos are really loaded. More than a meal or snack for four. Fried green beans best anywhere.

We stopped here for lunch and sat at the outside deck on the roof. Had the bison burger, fries, potato salad and Cole slaw. The slaw and potato salad were homemade and tastes great! Our server was personable and outgoing.

Fun atmosphere, nice people, great food! Stumbled across this bar and grill for lunch and was not disappointed. My husband had a wonderful buffalo burger and cold beer. Our kids enjoyed soda in bottles for a special treat with their lunch. Our family of 6 would definitely go back if ever back in the area.

Went there on a Saturday afternoon, sat upstairs on the patio where there was a nice breeze. Had some beers and nachos. The food was great. Only bad thing, we could not get bar service (Bloody Mary) upstairs, only beer. The lack of Bloody Mary led to a BIG mistake the following day. See my review of the TERRIBLE FOOD... More

Hot day, but the upstairs patio was fully shaded and with a good breeze - it didn't feel hot at all. (Full downstairs, almost full upstairs... busy time on a busy day!) Server - really good! Friendly, helpful and prompt! Length of wait (for food) - totally fair for how busy it was there! Buffalo burgers... disappointing. Way too dry.... More

Went here with young kids, late at night after exploring the Black Hills. Good food and service. The roof top patio was a great place to eat and relax.

There are a limited amount of restaurants in Hill City. We tried the German joint, but is was too crowded and they take cash only. After moseying down the street, We found Bumpin Buffalo and glad we did. Service was very good, and we shared a ginormous salad and a burger platter where the meat was twice as big as... More

Busy and efficient service is the hallmark of this popular spot with its typical western menu. We had fried chicken steak, reasonably priced for a tasty, massive platter, with a draft beer on the side. A perfect experience for us from the coast.

Thank Patricia C
