We had escaped the crowds in Deadwood and headed for Spearfish Canyon, hoping to find a nice place for lunch. We almost drove past but were drawn in by the the quaint exterior and inviting porch. The restaurant was busy, so we browsed the gift shop while we waited for our table. The smells coming from the kitchen were tantalizing.... More

We came here for the advertised "indian flat bread" thinking it would be a fun cultural food to try. If you're from the east, we call this Fried Dough. Although tasty, it was just state fair food with powdered sugar. Nothing special about it. However, the place has great breakfast and lots of local flavor - we overheard some great... More

The staff was super friendly and the restaurant was clean and... More

This is worth the drive wherever you are in the Hills. Friendly staff and awesome food. The best corned beef hash I've ever eaten, accompanied by an enormous pancake. My husband had the Broken Arrow and raved about it. He left a third on the plate, try as he might, he couldn't finish it. The bean sauce was out of... More

Cheyenne Crossing is a great stop before or after enjoying the scenic Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway. The staff is always friendly and helpful and the food excellent. I always enjoy a stop there, especially when showing visitors around the Black Hills. The Indian tacos are very popular for sure! Worth a visit!

We had a late 11 am breakfast there, and it was wonderful. Another couple was eating lunch at the same time. They had Indian tacos, and they looked really good. We came back for supper several days later and had the Indian tacos. We're from Oklahoma and often have good Indian tacos. These at Cheyenne Crossing were equally good. It... More

Stopped here after driving the Spearfish Canyon scenic highway & it was amazing! Indian tacos & carrot cake was our dinner!!! Portions are humongous, husband & I split both items, best food on our vacation. Reasonable prices, in addition to that there were 2 kids' meals on our tab & total was around $30. It's actually not too far from... More

Love this place! I have been coming here with family on and off for 33 years and love it! The breakfast is amazing and the history of the place is pretty good too. Great place to start or end a tour of Spearfish Canyon!

We were riding motorcycles to Spearfish Canyon and found this gem to take a break at and have lunch. Varied lunch menu and a nice gift shop to check out too. Service was good and food tasted good too!
