The personnel were very friendly and served our meals according to restaurant rules. Food was presented very well, with the chef's selection. Waitress was very accommodating and out going.

We love eating at Latchstring. It is a wonderful place to go as a couple, family or with friends. Their food is delicious and the views from the dining room or deck are gorgeous! Some of the staff continues from years to year, but during their busy season they hire young people from the college in Spearfish as well as... More

This is was wonderful to have so close by the Spearfish Lodge where we were staying. The food was great. The atmosphere, especially the deck seating was one of a kind! We ate four meals there and they were all very good food and we have developed somewhat refined tastes over the years and recognize good food. Probably not like... More

My husband and I have been coming to this restaurant since we honeymooned here in 2001. You can't help it; the scenery is amazing, it's a seemingly pleasant place to stop while driving through beautiful Spearfish Canyon....until you actually try and get waited on. Seriously, we are here maybe once every year or two and it's the same tired, lazy,... More

Lovely scene, lovely service, good quality food at inexpensive prices. $28.00 with tip out the door. Quality eggs, dark orange yolks, great coffee, oustanding fried potatoes, fantastic artisan bread. Thick cut bacon perfectly prepared.Mia, our server was informative and classy. Well worth the money. Great place!

We at both breakfast and dinner here. The service was prompt. The breakfast buffet was excellent with quite a few choices. Dinner was very good as well. Seated quickly, no wait. Order taken right when we were ready. Food was hot and served as described.

The setting here is gorgeous and the building is beautiful. The restaurant is very clean and nicely appointed. We were greeted after about 1 minute and seated quickly after that. The service was good, until I mentioned a problem, then it declined immediately. We ordered Salmon and Buffalo T-Bone as our entrees. All went well until the entrees were served.... More
