Stopped for lunch on the way back from Rushmore. Didn't expect much but boy was I wrong. Best Monte Cristo I ever had! The sauce is usually a weak tasting yogurt strawberry mess. This was a strawberry compote. Just super. I want another right now!

We had a late lunch here after visiting Mt. Rushmore. The selection of food was good and we had soups and sandwiches. I had the bison chili bowl. It was very good.

We had a family dinner at this restaurant on a Saturday night after spending the day cruising around the Black Hills. The food was great. Service was excellent. They took great care of a table of 8 teenagers and younger.

Nothing bad about the place as the people were nice and the service good. Our meals were somewhat bland and nothing "special" about them. Not a lot open in Keystone in mid October so we were happy it was open.

After visiting Mount Rushmore, we knew we'd struggle to find something open this late in the season and were pleased to find Ruby's open for lunch. What marvelous luck for us! Not only was the food really, really good (definitely try the ham & potato...More
