restaurant suggestions

We will be going to South Dakota this next week. We will be visiting the following areas. We will be in Lead, Deadwood, Custer State Park, Wind Cave, Keystone, Sylvan Lake, and Sturgis areas. We are looking for some restaurants suggestions in these areas. We will have a few lunches out and a couple of dinners. We like all types of food and we will would like to go out for a steak dinner one night.

Thanks for the suggestions!

For steak, the Alpine Inn has only filet for dinner at a very reasonable price. The downside...it gets extremely crowded. Many show up at around 4:30 and get a table in the bar so they can get in the 1st seating. If you don't mind a later dinner, you could arrive after 8 p.m. and probably have a lesser wait.

The State Game Lodge has a buffet lunch that is highly rated on this site. Food is excellent at Blue Bell Lodge. Both are located in Custer State Park and have excellent bison and other game choices. I have also read positive comments on Sylvan Lake Lodge. Jake's or the Deadwood Grille in Deadwood are frequently mentioned as being very good. Also, Cheyenne Crossing at the entrance of Spearfish Canyon is well rated.

I'm sure others will chime in with suggestions. Have a great trip, and let us know if you need any additional help.
