“Rough Riders Restaurant the Best Place in Town”

We didn't stay at the hotel, but partook of the beautiful restaurant. The room is large, very well appointed and the staff was excellent. The menu diverse enough for all appetites, and our meals expertly prepared.

“A Good Place for Breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

The Rough Rider Hotel is the premier hotel in Medora and of course it has a premier restaurant inside. Having had breakfast in the old hotel, before it was remodeled into the current one, we decided to have our first breakfast there. The menu was good, the prices were not outrageous and the quality of the food was excellent. Our server, a young man from Argentina, was very good, knowledgeable about the menu as well as any other questions, plus very aware of our table and any thing we might need. This restaurant has many Roosevelt paintings and family pictures on the walls and it is quite interesting to spend some time perusing them, most especially if you have an interest in Theodore Roosevelt. The atmosphere is conducive to taking your time and eating in a leisurely fashion.

“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

One of the very best meals on our 2 week trip. Everything is done right here so kudos to the owners/managers/chef and servers. Menu is full of varied choices, great bar and wine list and beautiful dining room. This is fine dining in a delightful western town in a beautiful National Park!
Be sure to stop, spend the night and enjoy.

“Well timed, friendly effective service, great menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

While we've been to Medora many times, this was the first time we've visited this restaurant in over 20 years.
Beautifully orchestrated menu.
Our server was excellent and the service I observed for other tables with different servers also looked like they had all been trained well.

Price range for the quality of menu and resulting dishes was excellent.

Will visit again.

“Fine dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

The food here is excellent. Well prepared and a varied menu. No, this is not your usual tourist town burger place. And the prices are the same as if you dined at a fine dining restaurant in one of the larger cities in North Dakota. Very attentive staff from various countries and states gave the restaurant a cosmopolitan vibe that you don't always find in a small town in North Dakota.
