Food and service was mediocre, but we enjoyed the building and atmosphere. If I went again, I would just go for a few drinks and eat elsewhere.

Great experience! Took the train into Hill City from Keystone. Had enough time to walk into town and have lunch at this restaurant. Lots of unique menu options and great service! Enjoyed our meal very much.

We decided to take a chance. I liked the name! The food was good & hot. Service was swift & courteous. The bumpin blueberry lemonades were very tasty. I recommend it for lunch.

After leaving a different restaurant this one made up for the lack of service at the other one. Service was prompt and we got our food quickly. The food was hot and tasty. Drink refills were quick and often. We would eat here again.

The place was crowded so we were seated on the second floor. The waitress was very attentive even though she had to trudge up and down the stairs with our food and drinks. Salmon was very tasty!

We walked into this place and sat down and bought a drink. The waitress came back for our order and proceeded to tell us they basically had no food left. I asked her why she didn't tell us there was no food left before we bought drinks, she did not have a good answer. Would not go back there.

Always try to spot the Bumpin Buffalo for a beer and sometimes something to eat. Wives were of shopping so brother in law and I went to the Buffalo for beers. When the wives showed up, we decided to have a some appetizers too. Good place for eats and beers.

I had a quick stop in Hill City for lunch. Bumpin Buffalo looked like the right place. Good selection of local beers and gives off the Western feel. Food was nice.

Be sure to stop here! Food was good and burgers are plate-size! Great food for the price and neat place. Does close during off season.

We didn't actually choose this place to eat in but, if you go in September and it's after 7 p.m., your choices are limited. As with all the small towns in South Dakota, you'll find people wandering the streets trying to find something that is still open and serving food. It was extremely busy. There were tables upstairs and seats... More
