“Excellent lunch, great shop”

Custer Battlefield Trading Post
Attraction details
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We stayed nearby in our RV to tour the Battlefield, and the campground staff recommended this place. We thought it was a tourist joint -wrong! The food and service were great and the restaurant was filled with a mx of tourists, local Crow Indians, ranchers,etc having Sunday lunch. We ordered Indian Tacos with great fry bread you finish off with honey. The shop had a huge range of merchandise...tourist goodies but also fine quality Pendleton goods with beautiful Indian motifs. Very friendly staff, lovely restrooms. Marvelous spot, right across from the Park Service entrance to Little Big Horn.

What a great place to find those wonderful things to purchase while on vacation. The Indian jewelry is stunning and the prices range from moderate to expensive!

Was able to find several piece to purchase as well as a wooden bison!

Great stop!

Unfortunately we couldn't eat at the café (too late for lunch, too early for dinner). We did, however, spend a long time in the shop. Superb Plains Indians craftsmanship alongside cheaper, touristy stuff (careful, not all genuine Indian). The beadwork and quillwork for sale are beautiful!

Review mentioning KFC is NOT the Trading Post, but shopping center next door. Trading Post is almost directly across from National Monument entrance and looks like a Wooden Fort, complete with wagons, tepees, and 7th Cavalry guidons flying. Fun place for a simple lunch - nothing fancy, but nice selection with some American Indian items on the menu. Trading Post is much larger inside than it appears, so lots of items to see and shopping is excellent. Hard not to pick up something from this fascinating area. Stop here before, during or after your battlefield tours. There is no food service in the Battlefield area or Visitors' Center.

Great place to visit. Just outside the Battlefield entrance. Have painted, crow-style tipis out front. Anything you could think of is probably in there, as is a cafe/dining. They also have lots of Crow beadwork hanging on the walls. And just when I thought I'd seen it all, I looked up and the ceiling was covered in craftwork! Prices a bit high on some of the craftwork, though.
