“Dipping Sauce”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

I can't remember what it was called but it's a buffalo burger with a dipping sauce like a french dip. Very good. Sweet potato fries were great and there were plenty to share.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

We found this restaurant with a tip from a random store clerk. Great food and fun atmosphere. Very busy home-town restaurant.

“Expensive, with rather mediocre food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

I guess I wouldn't go out of my way to visit Woolly's Western Grill again. We wanted to sit on the deck, but were told not to because the flies were bad. So we sat in the rather large, pole building type setting and ate our meal. Being from South Dakota, when we go out to eat steak, we expect it to be fabulous, and we are willing to pay a bit more for it.

The steaks were very overdone, and by the time anyone came around to check how things were, others in our group were already finished eating. We talked to the very friendly manager, and she offered us some chocolate cake for dessert. We obliged, only to find out the very expensive dessert was added to our bill. Sorry, but we won't be going back to Woolly's when we visit Hot Springs.
You've got a good idea going, but some things need to be "fixed."

“Service has improved!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

After initially being disappointed with the service, things have improved noticeably. Service is much better, especially when visiting during non-peak times. The staff and management seem to be really trying to improve both the service and the menu items. Meals that are consistently good are burgers, steaks, their fish sandwich, and the Mexican dishes. Desserts seem to be getting better. My only gripe is that during most of the year, the restaurant is closed on Sundays and Mondays. Bottom line: good place for a pleasant, unhurried meal.
