This meal was included with our stay at Rough riders Hotel. I thought the food was very good. I understand that they have live entertainment part of the time. Can't speak for any other meal but this one was good.

For our family of five, we paid $85 to eat substandard buffet style food. The Maltese was closed due to a shortage of workers, so we were a bit stuck--the Pizza parlor--the only real alternative--was packed. So, a few carrots later, the kids left hungry and we left with a good lesson in planning ahead. Do yourself a favor. Plan... More

Stopped in Medora for lunch after a wonderful trip thru the South Unit of T. Roosevelt National Park. We should have realized by the lack of customers that our experience was going to be less-than-acceptable. Walked in to find a "buffet" hidden in the rear of the hall, and after paying $ 27,00 + for our two meals found the... More

The food wasn't great and there wasn't a lot of selection. I'd kind of wished we'd gone to the pizza place across the street. It was nice that it was all you can eat and we found things for the kids and ourselves to eat, but it wasn't anything to write home about.

This was included in our Rough Rider hotel stay and was very convenient. Your standard buffet breakfast with nothing bad but nothing to rave about either.

Burgers were OK, little pricey, nothing too exciting, seemed like quite a wait for burgers. Ordering and pickup window could be better applied.

They charge $15 for a plate, yet they can't bother to replace the old food after it has sat out and gotten dry and crusty. Even worse, some of the food was as cold as the quality of their service.

Well, if you count pudding and canned fruit slices then there was more than just M&M's chocolate cookies. Think 1/3 or less of Golden Corral choices but this is a resort area and the price is very reasonable with that in mind. We were warned that it was 20 minutes to closing and someone did come and warn us just... More

We usually go here for their all you can eat breakfast. They serve 3 meals daily but for us the breakfast is the best and best value. Lots to eat and usually always very good.
