Description: Located inside historic Cedar Pass Lodge in Badlands National Park we are open seasonally serving visitors breakfast, lunch and dinner from April 15 until October 15. If you don't have time for a sit down meal, the store also sells "Grab N Go" sandwiches, salads and snacks. For years we have been known for serving visitors to the Badlands our authentic Sioux Indian Frybread - homemade. Diners also have a variety of options from fresh soup and salad bar to wraps, salads, chicken, Tatanka dogs, plus locally sourced buffalo and beef. Not only will you find healthy options, we also offer South Dakota made wine, beer and desserts, too, including the official dessert of South Dakota - Kuchen. We truck in SD State University ice cream from the school's dairy farm and creamery in Brookings, SD where they raise cattle and process their own ice cream. It is delicious! We are the only place in the western part of the state to be fortunate enough to have this scrumptious addition for your pleasure! Pleased to be serving our guests during the 2014 season during the following schedule: Apr. 15 - May 24: 8:00 am - 6:00 pm May 25 - Sept. 2: 7:00 Am - 9:00 pm Sept. 3 - Sept. 30: 7:00 Am - 8:00 pm Oct. 1 - Oct. 13: 8:00 Am - 6:00 pm Last seating in the restaurant is 30 minutes prior to Cedar Pass Store closing. Bus Tours Welcome - especially with advance notice!

I first had Indian Tacos here, and I can't find any to compare to it. It's made with Indian fry bread instead of corn tortillas, so it's not lo cal. Oh well... Delicious and very filling; enough for two light eaters. The service wasn't bad either.

We were getting a little antsy in driving from the Rapid City airport to the badlands. There is literally nothing on the way where you can stop, so it was nice to make it to the lodge. Cozy and basic. The Indian Taco was interesting but strange. The Indian bread is really good.I would definitely try that.

This is typical of most of the national park restaurants. You are, after all, a captive audience - nothing else is even close by.

We were directed to the Lodge as being the ONLY place to get breakfast in Interior. Although they only had one server working when we got there at 8am, we did manage to get food without too much of a wait. And, big jugs of coffee and fixings were available to get you started. My meal was a standard egg and hash-browns affair with a very generous supply of well-prepared bacon. Husband's pancakes were huge and very good. Not a bad start to the day!
