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.

Wish we had eaten lunch here, I thought it was just a pie shop. Some good looking items on the menu, especially for Custer SD. We did make a point of stopping for dessert. I had raspberry/rhubarb/jalapeno - I thought it was fabulous. My husband had blackberry - he is much more of a pie connoisseur than me - he... More

Tried the Bumbleberry pie. It was very good. The pot pie was wonderful on a cold rainy September evening.

Short summary: less than average food at expensive prices! My husband and I stopped for a late lunch about 2pm during a week day. Although the servers were very friendly, the meal was not at all worth the stop. The prices are very out of line with the rest of the region, and other than purple- the atmosphere was, well-...
