We ate here for dinner the first time because we were staying in town. We were wowed right away. The 'poke of the day', a starter, was an ahi tuna concoction on a fried wonton shell that was one of the best things ever. My husband had the fettuccine with seasonal veggies-also great, and I had the short rib on... More

Ate here twice as we love home made food and while it wasn't world class it was very good food. I had the wild salmon for lunch and my husband had a blt with crosscut fries [now THEY were world class!] and it was definitely above average. The next night I had the airline chicken breast and had mashed potatoes... More

Our hotel highly recommended this restaurant and we found out why. The food, the staff and the surroundings were all top notch. All three courses were prepared to perfection! The artwork on the walls was fascinating, highlighting a local artist. Perfect ending to an awesome day spent in the Custer area.

My husband, daughter and I arrived for lunch during a weekday. We were "non-greeted" (no "welcome" nor smile) by the 'hostess" who took us to a table by the window. As we do not like to be seen eating by passers-by, we politely asked for another table, as plenty were available. The hostess was obviously put-off by this request and... More

First off, the owner of this grill is a marvel to watch. This was a busy night, yet due to her incredible ability to do multiple jobs at once, things flowed efficiently. She served as host, bussed tables, setved food, and continually checked in on the kitchen. Perhaps they were short on staff the night we visited, but there seemed... More

Not my first time at Sage Creek Grille in Custer, nor will it be my last. I was a solo traveler early on a Friday evening around 6 pm and was given the option of a table for bar setting. I had the salmon and it was the best meal I have had in quite awhile. Love the local feel!

Service slow. A couple seated before us that arrived after us., we sat 10 minutes before drink order taken...when food arrived I was actually shocked. Nice piece of salmon however the couscous, 3 small tablespoons separated on the plate. If they were going for presentation, they failed. The price of this entree was $22. I was incredibly disappointed. My husband's... More

Wonderful quaint restaurant in the town of Custer. The menu is well rounded and changes through out the year. The chef uses local protean and vegetables and also has a tasty spin on the food offerings. A must stop if you are visiting and a defiant come back as a resident.

The beef cut of the night was a rib eye. Both mine and my wife's were done to perfection. A side of green beans and mashed potatoes accompanied our meal. I started with a bowl of potato soup (with bacon). We finished a bottle of wine between us and one of us had room for a small desert.
