Chose it online based on website and menu but nothing we wanted from the website was actually available (prime rib, appetizer platters). Environment was pleasant (besides excessive flies from the door being kept open) and casual but servers didn't offer info about soups or specials....More

Had an excellent meal. Waiter wasn't the greatest but did his job. Management was very cordial and seemed appreciative that we were there. Will be back again. This is a big improvement over a year ago.

Environment was great but the food not so good. Macaroni and cheese was over cooked by microwave, and the vegetables were under cooked

Wings are so GOOD. I had the ribs and not so good. I thought they would be cooked more like how the wings were. Even though I didn't enjoy the ribs, I will be back to try other things in the menu.

We've eaten here many times and the food quality and service are very good! They have a wonderful salad bar and it includes soup when eating lunch.

I feel like the beverages were overpriced, as was the shrimp scampi. Our waiter seemed to be overworked. The hostess was very cordial.More

I have enjoyed the food at Badlands but service is hit or miss - Has recently been remodeled and love the new look and atmosphere - I like that there is a patio now, but it is a little close to the busy road
