Best chicken potpie in the world!

We stayed at a campground in June 2015 close the Custer and we stopped the Purple Pie Place twice. Once for ice cream and once after visiting the caves for lunch and we tried the chicken pot pie which was AMAZING!

We stopped for a late lunch in mid-September at this casual restaurant. They were very busy even mid-afternoon in the off season so we were seated in the ice cream parlor area. Our lunch was very good-nothing fancy just tasty homemade food-but it was obvious the pies and ice cream are the main attraction here. There was literally someone buying... More

Ice cream ok, thought the pies were ok too. Lots of people there so maybe they had something different than we did.

This is not a fancy fine dining restaurant. It has good sandwiches, good ice cream and pie. The prime rib dip was as good as I have had anyplace. My wife enjoyed the BBQ pork sandwich. Although we enjoy the sandwiches we come for the pie. One time we actually started out in Montana and headed here just for the... More

I was really excited to visit Bobkats because it had good reviews. I was not very impressed with them. I was expecting something more original. But the staff was friendly.

Pies are really good as well as the food. The food is very fairly priced. I have been here several times over the course of three years as a seasonal employee in the area. The food and service has consistently been great.

While traveling this place was recommended to us for pie. There were 4 of us, only 3 of us had pie the other had a hot fudge sundae. The Apple pie was "good" but the berry pies left a lot to be desired - not very fresh especially the blackberry piece. The customer service was less than friendly - we... More
