Not what we expected to find in a small town in South Dakota. Steaks were fantastic in a classy, upscale place. Extensive wine list and excellent desserts. Could imagine this restaurant in many major cities across the US.

Food was okay - nothing spectacular. Steaks were cooked to order (medium rare) but still very tough. Over priced for the quality of food. Service was okay - a little lacking at times. We would probably not go here again.

Wow! An unexpected find during our stay in Mitchell. We had a great dinner & excellent service from Kristine. Met the friendly owner and enjoyed our conversation about wine with him. We very much enjoyed after our long travel day! Yum.

We had a large group of about 15 Monday night dine here. Drinks and food were excellent but our waitress was amazing. She handled our whole table on her own and everything came out perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant.
