Not sure why there are so few food-and-booze places in this town, but when we finally found one, we settled in for a meal and drinks. The loaded hush puppies were Interestingly good. The pulled pork was adequate - good but not fabulous. The Dare...More

No, no, no, do not go! I understand this is a small town & not tourist season, however we waited at least 45 minutes for our food. There was only one lady running the front & although she did a good job the cook did...More

Have been here a few times. Food is always good and service is always slow. So if you have time to spare, try the Vault

Food was good. Service was good. Paid $9+ for a burger and fries but the burger wasn't huge and only got about 20 fries. Everything was good but I like to be full when a leave a restaurant. I wasn't.

It was impossible to get a table in any restaurant in town except the Vault. So we went in. The food is okay. The waiter was harried and gruff- quite unfriendly. But we wanted food and we got it. Nuff said.

Sorry for the odd title - but it captures my impression of this place, which was a positive one. We had dinner here after visiting Mount Rushmore. After eating at many smaller, no-frills local places while on our tour (which I did enjoy immensely), this...More
