“Great place, open late”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We arrived in Custer at dark on our motorcycles and were tired and hungry. The only restaurant open was the Frontier Bar and Grill. The bartender/waitress/cook was about to close, but she welcomed us in with a wonderful smile. We asked her for a recommendation from the menu and agreed to try the Tatanka burger basket. It was wonderful! Plenty of food at a reasonable price. She was very friendly and informative about the area and helped us tweak our riding plans to make the most of our vacation. We never felt rushed and only wish we had more time so we could have visited again.

“Great little place in Custer”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

We stopped and the ribs. They are amazing! The service was great and we really enjoyed ourselves! We also got the gizzards, which were delicious! We got some take out, and the waitress included all the necessities! We will be back when we are in the area!

“Fast, friendly service”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We chose this restaurant based on its good reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We tried three different burger baskets and chicken fingers from the children's menu. Everyone loved it. Waitress was very nice!

“They asked us if we needed forks...”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We stopped in for a meal and was VERY disappointing. The server ask us if we needed forks for or cole slaw served in all 3 of our baskets. Do they do slaw shots here??? We are very use to eating finger/bar food but draw the line with cole slaw and fingers... The cod was dry and palatable only with BBQ sauce. My children's chicken strips were tasteless. The rib special was bone dry and gave my wife an upset stomach minutes later. My son's mini corn dogs smelled like old fryer grease. We did not enjoy any bar drinks. Many 5-6 beers would have helped the meal...

“Rip Off”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

People were great at first. Food was good but tiny the burger was a hair bigger than a slider. They had a very faded sign ot front saying "Burger baskets $5.50 from 11a to 5p" so we went in and ordered burgers from the section of the menu labeled Burger Baskets. After getting the check and questioning the full price charges i was informed that it was only the plain hamburger basket that was the special price. I said OK, but thought thanks for telling us that after we got the check. After all we asked about the special before we ordered. As i was walking out, the waitress, bartender, and cook were talking crap about the stupid tourist questioning the bill, loud enough for me to hear, thanks for that folks. All in all it felt like a scam to get more money out of "stupid tourists" (their words not mine)
