The food was very good and the service was prompt. The view from the restaurant is scenic, with the high mountain walls lining the canyon. On the bottom of the canyon, Spearfish Waterfall feeds into the creek, near the hotel.

We enjoy visiting the Latchstring and the beauty of the log building and it's location. An easy walk down to the falls adds to the experience. The food is average. We prefer the menu items over the buffet.
