Description: Mangy Moose has been owned and operated by a single woman for over 20 years. We spent those years becoming the best bar in the southern hills, and offered your typical bar menu of burgers and appetizers. We have grown to a place that sells burgers, Mexican food and a great ribeye steak on the outdoor grill. Our cooking facilities are minimal and it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the high volume of hungry customers. Our food is good and most things are made fresh from scratch, but we have the most square footage on the block and a lot of steps to get food and drinks for the hundreds and hundreds of people that stop by each day. We love to have you visit the Mangy Moose and have a good time, but if you are in a hurry... you may sometimes be disappointed in the wait. There is usually live entertainment on the outside stage to enjoy, with a full liquor bar. Please keep in mind that we are doing the best we can with the facilities and staff that we have. We are a BAR with a limited menu, that happens to sell food, and not a RESTAURANT that sells alcohol. Everything on our menu is good and we have specialty foods that you can't get at any ordinary restaurant. If you are in a hurry and looking for a large menu, we are probably not what you are looking for. But if you are looking for a great place to sit on the outdoor patio and people watch, or a great place to enjoy a cocktail, a beer, or a glass of wine and have a bite to eat... you won't be disappointed.

“OK for a drink - outside”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2010

Typical touristy joint, which has a strong odor of tobacco, so they clearly permit smoking (unlike most places in the region). We stopped for an iced tea in mid-day and drank it at the outdoor tables, which was OK, but nothing to recommend the place at all.

“Great atmosphere, good food and open late!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2010

This was one of the few restaurants open past 9pm and we were thankful it was. There was a great selection of beer and ample liquor. Dree, our bartender, was fantastic and also had good sight-seeing suggestions. She made our eating experience even more enjoyable. Many menu choices -- the food was tasty and cooked to order. Being a vegetarian in S.D. was challenging but not at the Mangy Moose. Even their salsa was excellent! The atmosphere was happy for everyone seemed to be laughing and having a fun time.

“hungry hunters”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2009

after a long day archery hunting, we were disappointed that the cook was leaving early and there were only leftover taco stuff left on the menu at 7:00. We saw several other biker guys come in to eat, but left hungry also.
