This place was very unique. A person could spend hours in here just looking at the things on the wall. The waitress staff was friendly. The food was good, wasn't too costly either. If going through Keystone worth checking out. We enjoyed the buffalo burgers.

Very nice atmosphere. We eat here every time we visit the Black Hills. Prices are reasonable for a tourist destination.

My party stopped by here for lunch while touring and it was just a great place to eat! The decor was very interesting, full of Old West arcana for the history buff. The wait staff was super friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious!...More

We were staying in Keystone and actually had dinner here twice because we enjoyed the first night's meal. The food and the service are both good and we enjoyed the 'Wild West' look of the place. Try the buffalo stew served in a bread bowl...More

We recently ate at Ruby's for an early dinner after hiking the Black Elk trail with our two dogs. We were exhausted from the almost 7 mile hike and needed a good meal. We also needed a place where we could eat outside with the...More

Keystone is small and since we were there at the end of their season, not any options for dining but Ruby House did not disappoint. Fabulous filet, with a Caesar salad and a baked potato was perfect. At other tables we noticed great looking burgers...More

We had lunch here during our 1880 Steam Train stop. The service was very good and the food hit the spot on a cool damp day. The decor is historic with pictures of American presidents and other important figures. This is a good option when...More

I splurged and ordered a steak, which was not great. The food seemed typical institutional fare. The service was good, but the place was crowded and it was not speedy.

Yes you can make reservations! Call ahead of time, or go in the restaurant and let them know what time and day you want a reservation for and how many people! If you don’t want to wait I recommend getting reservations!
