If you aren't in line at 4:30, you're going to have to wait to get in to eat. Believe me, it's worth the wait. Probably the best Filet in the Midwest. There are people that come here from Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, just to eat and...More

Great selection of desserts. Cash only. Only a few main dish choices during the week. Worth going once for the experience but not a main stay for us.

This place was Fantastic! You put your name down on the list and they give you a time to come back to be seated. We had about 45 minutes to wait so we walked around downtown Hill City. The restaurant only gives you a couple...More
