When in the area always have at least one meal here. The veggie burger and Reuben are our usual choices, always good. Sad to see the mural was painted over. I was told the online "art critics" didn't approve. Big blank wall not an improvement...

Yes online reviews referred to it as tacky...but that's ok as something new will be coming! Just got done with all new flooring!

Service was great and food was reasonable. We enjoyed our omelettes. It was a quick breakfast stop and satisfied our hunger. It is located downtown and close to local shopping.

Saw it listed in Trip Advisor in the small town of Chamberlain. Located off the interstate downtown on the river. Very quaint diner full of locals for lunch. Service was good. One of our diners said it was the best chili had

When driving through South Dakota, we usually eat at places close to the road. This time we thought we’d drive into Chamberlain and try someplace new. So happy we did! Food was good and the chocolate chimichanga was beyond amazing. We will go back again...More

So happy we drove a bit longer this morning. We had a delicious late breakfast, pancakes, omelette, bacon, etc, good coffee. Friendly people and nice fishing decor. As we have found in many of these family-owned cafes, there were daily specials, well worth the price.

We stayed one night in Chamberlain. Tried the Anchor grill for dinner and liked it enough to come back for breakfast. Friendly service and good food. Plus a full bar.

Friendly service but the experience was just OK. Two out of our three orders was incorrect but they did fix it relatively quickly.
