We were staying at the KOA and spent the day at Mount Rushmore, checked out a few places in Rapid City to celebrate my birthday dinner while on vacation. We first checked the "Vertex" at the top of the Alex Johnson Hotel and they were going to charge us $20.00 just to ride the elevator up 9 floors! Forget that!... More

When out-of-town guests visit from San Francisco, Salt Lake or DC, we take them here to experience a slice of fine dining, which always gets rave reviews. The quality of service, food preparation, and selections are always appreciated. Expensive, but great for special occasions.

We had dinner with a bottle of wine and could not have been more pleased with the service or quality of the food. My companion had the duck and I had pork tenderloin both cooked to order and succulent. The wine was attended to throughout the meal, our server was very attentive. Warm bread and garlic butter were offered before... More

Had the buffet that was included with the hotel. Fairly small selection but good food, a little more up scale that traditional hotel breakfast. Wait staff was non existent never saw anyone after we were seated.

My girlfriend and I made a reservation for Mother's Day, thinking we might find it hard to have a breakfast on Mother's Day. We sought out an early reservation based upon this restaurants' excellent rating and location downtown. We walked into the restaurant to be greeted by a gentleman, holding a coffee thermos. We told him we had a reservation.... More

We had not dined at this restaurant for a few years. The last time we dined here our food was ok. This time it was nasty. Our event started off with a hostess who acted as if we were bothering her by stopping in. She said nothing as she sat us. The waiter was equally unremarkable. The food was mediocre... More

The buffalo ribeye and the lambchops were excellent. We were seated at 7:25 and ordered by 7:35 yet our food wasn't served until 8:20! All meat was served medium rare so it shouldn't have taken that long. Also, we had a few questions about the menu and each time the waitress didn't actually know the answer and had to go... More

We love your schnitzel and the fresh salad that comes with it. It's fresh and the portion is a great size. Also you bread with the herb butter is wonderful.

I can't believe this place gets good reviews . The food was decent, but the atmosphere here was horrendous.

This was our very first time to this restaurant. We received a four course mystery dinner. The salad was the only part we didn't like. But the appetizer, dinner and dessert more than made up for it. We couldn't have the wine due to our various medical conditions. The staff were friendly. The price point is an issue, but I... More
