What a nice place. The pies are amazing. They are so good and such a nice selection. Due to the size of the slices it was our dinner that night.

Amazing Bumble berry pie! Incredible combination of Apple, strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry and rhubarb. My favorite pie! We stop by here every time we get to the Blackhills. They are full every time so we always get a pie to go but It looks like now they may be adding on. They do close during the off season.

Stayed in Custer for 4 days and hit this place up twice...their pies had us coming back. A piece of pie with a scoop of ice cream is about $5.00....not cheap but well worth it. You can sit inside or at pick-nic tables outside. It also has a retaurant in the back of their building, but we did not eat... More

This is a fun place to go for dessert. We love to try all of the different types of pie. They also have an amazing rhubarb plant out back that they use to make the rhubarb pie.

Chicken pot pies followed by four different types of desert pies, peach, peanut, blackberry and strawberry. And the best banana milkshake ever. Cool and cooky place, great waitress, quick service

My friend and I thought our pie was wonderful, but my husband wasn't thrilled with his choice. Very friendly place.

We went to Bobkat's looking for some homemade goodness and left disappointed. The pies were very average, but incredibly overpriced (2 very small slices came to $10). We got the daily pie which was a chocolate cream, and a slice of the raspberry jalapeno rhubarb. The chocolate cream was essentially a very runny chocolate pudding that oozed all over my... More

After a day of hiking, a piece of pie from Bobkat's is the best treat. I had a rhubarb slice with vanilla ice cream and it was delish!

This place does indicate they are a pie and ice cream place and was the perfect place to go for dessert after lunch. Between the two of us ice cream and pie were ordered and both were delicious. We understood they were closing for the season either that day or Sunday - we were here on Oct 1st. Glad we... More
