We ate breakfast and dinner at the lodge on two days. The breakfast skillets are very generous and well-prepared. Came back the second day because I wanted to try the caramel roll - a bit disappointing as the roll itself was not very flavorful. For dinner, be sure to try the buffalo meatloaf. We also enjoyed the burgers. We were there after the summer rush so perhaps the staff had more time. They were all very friendly and accommodating. One evening our waiter graciously moved us from the dining room to the bar area so we could watch the game on TV.

Pros: Good food, gorgeous setting, mixed and vintage decor.
Cons: Young, unengaged staff (very busy watching TV and using phones in lobby), lack of mood music (they did turn some on after I asked them too). Definitely felt like our business was taken for granted.
Ho-hummm

Oh it was excellent. The buffalo was pan seared in onions, not too tough, not undercooked. The fried pickles did surprise me; whole pickle spears battered and fried.
It was delicious.

This restaurant is located in a nice cabin in Custer State Park. Great atmosphere and the food was good too. The service was pretty slow though, especially towards the end when we just wanted to pay the bill and get on with our day, but had to wait a while for the check.
