Stopped for lunch on the way back from Rushmore. Didn't expect much but boy was I wrong. Best Monte Cristo I ever had! The sauce is usually a weak tasting yogurt strawberry mess. This was a strawberry compote. Just super. I want another right now!

We had a late lunch here after visiting Mt. Rushmore. The selection of food was good and we had soups and sandwiches. I had the bison chili bowl. It was very good.

We had a family dinner at this restaurant on a Saturday night after spending the day cruising around the Black Hills. The food was great. Service was excellent. They took great care of a table of 8 teenagers and younger.

Nothing bad about the place as the people were nice and the service good. Our meals were somewhat bland and nothing "special" about them. Not a lot open in Keystone in mid October so we were happy it was open.

We saw this restaurant on the way to Mt. Rushmore and decided we would stop for lunch the next day. We were so happy we did. The interior decor gave the feel of a step back in time. Lots of pictures of the early 1900's...More

After arriving at our Lodge, our group went to Ruby's because it was basically the only place open. The service was good and the food was good. The prices were a little on the high side but again this a tourist town.
