After reading the reviews we were a little skeptical. We did not sit outside because we are not smokers. Our waitress (Kate) got our drinks within a minute, and took our food order. We both got the steak sandwich. It wasn't a great ribeye, but...More

Ate lunch here. Really good pulled pork burrito and excellent salsa. We ate outside. Came back for a drink that evening and went inside. It's basically the local dive bar as far as décor. But it was okay.

Service was slow. Took a long time to get our drinks. Food came at same time. I would have order another glass of wine, but the waitress disappeared. Also, I was afraid I would have to wait awhile for it. We were sitting outside, where...More

We didn't stay long enough to eat or drink. First person encountered in the place was quite honestly one of the rudest waitresses I've ever had. Didn't want to get drinks or a menu for us. The place wasn't that busy but apparently she wasn't...More

I would not recommend this place. Only one waitress to seat you, serve, you and assist you. I was very disappointed in this place. She was the only one so the service was more than slow, flies were just about anywhere you looked, and you...More

Eating at the Mangy Moose is a great place to relax, have some great food, adult beverages and people watch while sitting curbside.

Nice western style restaurant, tex-mex, interesting food. Spartan service, but at least efficient. Didn't like so many smokers in outside restaurant area. Smoke ruins food taste.

Very slow service. Sat for at least 10-15 minutes before anyone came to take out drink order. Nice outdoor space along downtown but service is way too slow.

Sturgis rally 2016. Not a large crowd at all at this place. Service is non existent if you are not sitting at the bar. This is a great place to sit and watch the street traffic. But once again, been here two times before, could...More

Mangy Moose has been owned and operated by a single woman for over 20 years. We spent those years becoming the best bar in the southern hills, and offered your typical bar menu of burgers and appetizers. We have grown to a place that sells burgers, Mexican food and a great ribeye steak on the outdoor grill. Our cooking facilities are minimal and it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the high volume of hungry customers. Our food is good and most things are made fresh from scratch, but we have the most square footage on the block and a lot of steps to get food and drinks for the hundreds and hundreds of people that stop by each day. We love to have you visit the Mangy Moose and have a good time, but if you are in a hurry... you may sometimes be disappointed in the wait. There is usually live entertainment on the outside stage to enjoy, with a full liquor bar. Please keep in mind that we are doing the best we can with the facilities and staff that we have. We are a BAR with a limited menu, that happens to sell food, and not a RESTAURANT that sells alcohol. Everything on our menu is good and we have specialty foods that you can't get at any ordinary restaurant. If you are in a hurry and looking for a large menu, we are probably not what you are looking for. But if you are looking for a great place to sit on the outdoor patio and people watch, or a great place to enjoy a cocktail, a beer, or a glass of wine and have a bite to eat... you won't be disappointed.
