“Great Prime Rib”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

The prime rib was some of the best i've had. Since it says it is the oldest bar how could I resist not having a drink there.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. We are very glad you enjoyed the Prime Rib!

Chef Tom and staff take special care to make sure you have the best experience possible! Now, if we could only get Tom to tell us the secret behind that tasty prime, we'd be set! On second thought, maybe we'll just keep that to ourselves!

“Great food, usualy great service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

Couldn't wait to get here, last time 3 years ago it was great. They had a guy singing which was great. Went to the counter to be seated and a older lady gave me a dirty look and walked away. Luckily there was a young man there working and he took great care of us. Maybe she was mad because I had my 2 kids with. He couldn't have been nicer. Great food as always though.

“Killer portions!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Ate last night at Bodega. My girlfriend ordered the small chicken fried steak as did the wife in our traveling partners. If they would have shared, the take home box would have been smaller. I ordered the regular sized CFS and needed a suitcase to haul off what I could not finish! We used to live in Texas and eat this often but these matched anything from the Lone Star State. Perfect white gravey. Nice service. Give this place a try..but you now have been warned about the portions!

“Not good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

My wife offer a sirloin steak and had to send it back and ordered the shrimp instead. She didn't like the shrimp either. We were battling flies for our food the whole time. My son and I ordered the prime rib. It was OK but nothing to brag about. If you really want a good steak or prime rib dinner, drive to Rapid City and go to the Dakota Steakhouse.
