We got the steak tips and fried. I thought they were tender and delicious. But the fries were great. They were topped with garlic and cheese. They were fantastic.

We stopped in here to grab some supper after seeing Mount Rushmore and driving through a wildlife area. It was one of the best meals of our 10 day long trip. My husband got the bison filet mignon and said it was wonderful. The steak tips are what I got with the garlic parmesan fries, and they were good as... More

We ate dinner here twice. It has decent burgers. Clean. Nice decor. Friendly waitstaff. Avg price for area. Full bar which is a limited option in custer, so it's a plus for restaurant if you want a mixer with your meal.

One of the best in Custer. I always eat in the bar area although I'm not a drinker. They have many TV's and each table has their own TV. The food in good. The service is good. I've never eaten on the roof but understand it's an experience. The chicken sandwich and salmon salad are my favorites.

Went there with my husband, we got a bison burger and an elk burger, both of which were good, but not amazing. Unfortunately my wine was corked, but it was replaced for a good one. The seating areas are nice and the amount of tvs was great for a sports bar.

Ate outside up on the deck overlooking the main drag of Custer ND. Had salads, craft brews and shared the Flatbread Caprese app. Food was fresh and we'll prepared. Our lovely server Coco was extremely friendly and helpful with our selections. If touring the Badlands area this is a nice place to stop.

Really enjoyed this place, as a visiting tourist. The place was very busy which is always a good sign, and had a decent atmosphere, it is a restaurant / bar. The service was excellent. The menu had plenty to choose from, most of the table went for the buffalo burger which everyone enjoyed, I went for the pizza with buffalo,... More

We felt lucky to get a table but they rallied and found us one upstairs overlooking the bar area. I had the Margherita Flatbread and my husband had the Pulled Pork Flatbread. Both were very good and we wanted a lighter dinner. The service was exceptional, very good servers and great suggestions!
