We arrived at the lodge on a Friday night and the restaurant and very full. We waited about 10 minutes for a table but was amazed that the food was very good and the prices reasonable. There must have been a lot of people from other hotels because the restaurant seems to seat more than the lodge accommodates. The service... More

Best in the area! The Cajun linguine and baseball cut sirloin were excellent. Fabulous service. Great rustic atmosphere and a great value. We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner.

My husband and I liked this place to eat so much we went back twice. They have a lot of game on the menu so don't miss the chance to try something new. They also have a good wine menu. I had pheasant one night and buffalo the next. Both were very well prepared and delicous. The staff were friendly... More

I really wanted to try a bison steak for the first time, and this restaurant was highly recommended to me. It was fantastic! I thought the bar prices were a little high for you get, but the food definitely made up for it. My server was great and explained to me how bison meat is cooked differently and helped me... More

Booked budget cabins 21 and 22 in advance for me and my parents for a family road trip to South Dakota. (My brother and his large family stayed in the larger motel style cabin up the hill from us) This section of quad cabins is off to the side of the front desk/restaurant building. You have to pull into a... More

We ate both breakfast and dinner at this restaurant, and the food was delicious. The staff was very friendly. We were able to have their special for dinner - buffalo prime rib, and it was fantastic. A little pricey, but well worth it, and less than at big city fine dining restaurants. We wanted to go back again for another... More

The town of Keystone is a meca for tourist. If that's what you like you will enjoy the crowed eateries that line the Main Street. We were fortunate to find the Powder House lodge a few miles outside town. Their menu was extensive and would have something for every palate. I had wild quail (3),mash potatoes and a medley of...

Sure didn't expect the quality of food and service we received when we pulled into this restaurant/lodge. Traveling through the area and timing a return to Mt. Rushmore for the lighting ceremony, we decided to have dinner here. WOW!! The menu was diverse and exotic and the food/service were spectacular. Have to say that the decor/atmosphere did not fit the... More
