The food was excellent. There were about 28 of us who went there to eat and the waitress we had did an excellent job. I got a steak with trimmings and artichoke dip. I think it was about $46.00 but it was wonderful.

Great food and great atmosphere! The decor is pretty amazing. We went on a Sunday for lunch and service was prompt. Our server was very attentive. Best place we ate while visiting Rapid City!
