If you're asking yourself where and what to eat...

Dakota cuisine showcases the bounty of the mountains, plains and rivers of the west. Discover some of our regional specialties during your vacation: Buffalo (steaks, roasts, burgers, jerky), elk, walleye, rainbow trout, pheasant, Dakota Beef and our local twist on foreign recipes: Indian tacos or Cornish pasties (pronounced pass-tees).

Whether you choose from one of the dozens of casual dining eateries or prefer a more upscale fine dining atmosphere, we offer an outstanding variety of restaurants, cafes, chuckwagons and supper clubs. Because the Black Hills is a vacation area, dining ambience here is casual and informal. There is not a single restaurant that would presume to require you to wear a coat and tie. A better choice would be a golf shirt and slacks or a nice blouse and fashion jeans. Even your new Black Hills souvenir t-shirt will fit right in. Bon appetit!
