We stayed at the nearby K Bar S Lodge for a couple of nights to visit Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park, and during that time we ate at Powder House twice for dinner.

Our first night's dinner in the Rapid City area, recommended by our cabin owners, was the Powder House Lodge Restaurant. A comfortable, casual atmosphere with friendly staff was impressive. Even better was the food! Delicious steaks, appetizers, and sides. We could have eaten there every night! Definitely a restaurant to enjoy. Great for couples, families, and friends.

Great little gem of a restaurant within the Powder House Lodge Office and Check-in building. I had a 12oz cut of prime rib and could not have been more pleased. Cooked to perfection with a very tasty aus jus accompaniment. Wife had the chicken parmesan and ate every bite. A glass of Merlot for me, and a very good Pinot... More

I realize it's a tourist town, but it just seemed really expensive to me for 2 people having dinner. We arrived right as they opened, so service was really great since we were about the second diners in the place. Our server was very attentive, answered all of our questions, brought our food promptly, and was really nice. The food... More

the wait to be seated was long but the food and service was worth the wait! They have the little buttons to let you know when a table is ready for you. Very good wine selection!

Did not expect such good food in small tourist town. Loved it so much and planned to go back for the 2nd time if we did not leave early. .it was so yummy. Buffalo steak is good, I ordered stuffed Quails. It cam with three most tender quails I ever had. Big portions. Better to make reservation.
