Not thrilled. Food was just ok and the prices were a bit high for the off season. Only place open this time of year. Will not be back.

Walked from my nearby hotel, just wanting to get some beer and watch football. Very cool atmosphere in the bar. They have outdoor seating for summer time. Service was good and so was the food. Appreciated that they were open during the off season

Came here after a long day of traveling. Workers were pleasant and service was very good. Drinks were good as well. Steaks were good. I'd give the place another go around when in town. Nice quaint place and I give them credit for staying open...More

A salad, steak (petite cut), and potato for $17.00 was very good. AND they know how to do medium rare! The salad was attractive and tasty, the potato cooked just right, and the steak (though the knives aren't the best) was tender and juicy. I...More

Food was good..it was very expensive but I guess they could really charge whatever they want since they are the only restaurant open in the area. But it was good food if you are in the area for the winter.

We had a wonderful dinner with friends at BaRLee's! Very friendly and helpful staff. Overly generous portions. You have to try their homemade potato chips with your sandwich! Yummy!

This was the only place open this time of year. The food was poor. Service was slow and they were not very busy. Will not go back again.

Surprised that all other places were already closed for the season on October 28. Food was decent but overpriced. Our waiter was reasonably nice, but every other employee was unfriendly, if not surly. We'll drive back to Rapid City next time

We had a short wait to be seated, but we so appreciated having a restaurant open. We have been to Keystone in October before, but it seemed so buttoned up this year. They were short staffed, but the waitresses worked hard, were attentive, and stayed...More
