Good food and good beer. The beer is brewed right in the place. Food was good. Staff very friendly. A lot of firefighting memorabilia. You can eat inside or outside. They have a Winery and a gift shop. Is family friendly.

Traveling through South Dakota and there were signs for this restaurant everywhere. We drove out of the way and well off the beaten path to get there. There was no parking so we had to park and walk to the restaurant. Once we got there, we learned that there would be a 30 minute wait. It was pouring the rain and they don’t have anywhere to sit and wait inside. They do allow you to walk around their store or the winery next door. But, when a 30 minute wait turns into almost an hour it would be nice to have waiting area seating. My daughter had the kids chicken fingers, my husband had a barbecue combo of some sort, and I had the Reuben. We also ordered an artichoke dip. The food was average at best and for the quality was overpriced. We were seated upstairs which was a nice atmosphere but the waitresses had to run up and down the stairs for everything we asked for which made the wait time for requests much longer than an average restaurant.
If you are traveling through South Dakota and looking for somewhere to eat, I would not recommend wasting a couple hours or more of your time to try out this restaurant.

Why would you advertise for 100 miles only to serve salad that was sitting too long? The cool thing is this is located inside an old fire station. Our waitress forgot silverware and acted weird when we asked for it. The table at which our family was seated was pretty wobbly. We aren’t that picky about food, but it’s nice to have it fresh. It really isn’t a great family restaurant unless you like bad food memories. Maybe it’s better as a bar?

We waited 30 minutes at 7pm on a Sunday night. Great ambiance, service, and food. We got fish and chips, fish tacos and ribs. No complaints. Local beer was good too.
