My friend and I thought our pie was wonderful, but my husband wasn't thrilled with his choice. Very friendly place.

We went to Bobkat's looking for some homemade goodness and left disappointed. The pies were very average, but incredibly overpriced (2 very small slices came to $10). We got the daily pie which was a chocolate cream, and a slice of the raspberry jalapeno rhubarb. The chocolate cream was essentially a very runny chocolate pudding that oozed all over my... More

After a day of hiking, a piece of pie from Bobkat's is the best treat. I had a rhubarb slice with vanilla ice cream and it was delish!

This place does indicate they are a pie and ice cream place and was the perfect place to go for dessert after lunch. Between the two of us ice cream and pie were ordered and both were delicious. We understood they were closing for the season either that day or Sunday - we were here on Oct 1st. Glad we... More

Fun Place! Great pies, great ice cream, best chicken pot pie and salad specials! And a very cute place. Ice cream store in front, restaurant in back. Chicken pot pie was delicious, fresh, and cute with a chicken shaped crust on top! Ate several times there during our week in the Custer area.

This is the pie & ice cream destination in Custer, SD. We had dessert there almost every day on our week long trip. There were at least a dozen pies to choose from daily (by the slice or whole). The blueberry, strawberry/rhubarb, and coconut cream pies were delicious. Lots of ice cream flavors to choose from, too. There's also a... More

Wonderful, wonderful food! We had soup both days! Chicken Pot Pie, Buffalo Pot Pie, and Potato Soup were absolutely lovely! And then Bumbleberry Pie was incredible!

A man at the visitor's center recommended a few restaurants for lunch; said this place had good food & excellent pies. The pie got me & I was hoping it would be really good. It was excellent. All fruit, hardly any sugar, just good natural fruit-filled pie. The crust is thin and not lardy. Felt like I was eating a... More

The chicken pot pies here are supposed to be exceptional, but we tried one & were not impressed. The veggies appeared to be from frozen, & there was very little chicken. The mac & cheese was good, as were the slices of peach & cherry pie we had for dessert, but not special. Not worth a special visit.
