Red Rock Diner

'm rating red rock as a restaurant in Wall. Idk why people are so hard on it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ you're in a small town.

Red rock is one of the only restaurants in town. The service is fine. The food is fine. I grabbed the ribeye which had a crazy thick fat cap. The roll was nice and soft. The steak was fine. I asked for medium rare but got medium. They have a lovely patio outside. Your steak comes with a basic salad bar. Yup the salad bar is a bagged salad with a handful of fresh toppings. It's fine. Nothing special.

I would grab a burger with their tots or the mashed potatoes with white gravy.

Pink P (Florida)

Stopped here for lunch and got seated right away. Small town, old fashioned diner, which is exactly what I was looking for. Large menu - mostly breakfast items and burgers, some Mexican dishes. Prices were very good for the large portions they serve. Waitress was friendly and attentive, food arrived quickly, it was hot and it was good. Highly recommended and I would definitely return.



We were in town for a wedding. We had great food, large portions and our waitress was amazing. We had everything from Fried pickles, breakfast food and a bacon cheeseburger at our table. Everything was good. Prices were reasonable.

The Classic American Cafe
This place is what all chain cafes and diners pretend to be. It's feel is legit from serving the small town since 1936.

The surprisingly broad breakfast and lunch menu is served all day. You can just about hear the homemade pies talking to you, vying for your attention.

Make it a destination rather than just a pit stop.



I promised myself when I got home from pheasant hunting that I would write this review. My large group of ten had breakfast two straight mornings and we were all very impressed. Prompt service and the food came out so fast we were all surprised. Every order was different and our server’s had every order nailed perfectly. Great food at reasonable prices. See you next year!

Rollin Wheel


Great small town diner. I had the prime rib, it was perfectly mid rare, as ordered. Hash browns were crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Salad bar had a good selection of toppings along with macaroni and potato salads, fluff and pudding. The wait staff was efficient and friendly.



We had dinner here on Friday evening. The restaurant was nearly full but the service was prompt and friendly. I could have made a meal out of the salad bar. It was good and fresh. I had a hamburger steak and waffle fries. The hamburger had a nice flavor and the fries were very good. The prices were reasonable. We'll be back.

Pounders Pub & Grub


Our favorite place to eat when visiting our kids.  Football games are on multiple TVs, great customer service and never a bad meal!!



Great find during a recent pheasant trip - food was great, tons of beers, full bar. Great place to watch some football after shooting a limit of birds.


Cambell Street Cafe


Great old school cafe
Food and service was excellent. Place is very clean and staff was friendly. Old school small town cafe experience!……..


Hidden surprise that came up on GPS search after car wash. Parking lot full of S.Dakota plates - always a good sign if the locals eat there. Seated right away, busy but not over-crowded. Breakfast plate was huge, got my two eggs worth and the sausages were as thick as a BRAT!! Blackberry Jellie! Yay! Travel buddy got the chicken fried steak done to perfection! It was a GREAT meal, excellent service and full coffee. Fresh cinnamon rolls were almost as big as a dinner plate!


Spearfish Breakfast House

Good food, friendly servers (and manager), fun decor. We dropped in on a busy Sunday morning after checking out of the local KOA, hoping for for a casual, simple, sit-down breakfast of eggs and pancakes before getting on the road. We were not disappointed. Pretty busy and they seemed short-handed (the times we live in now) but service was surprisingly quick considering the number of patrons vs the number of servers.

Lewie's Burgers

Love this place! Had the bacon cheeseburger with sautéed mushrooms. It was amazing. We all had French fries and Mac and cheese balls. The Mac and cheese balls were pretty standard, but the burgers and the service were awesome.

Summerville Store and Cafe

We stopped here on our drive along less-traveled roads from Dickinson to Badlands National Park. What a find! It's part convenience store, part bait and tackle, part local cafe. The decor consists of photos of Big Fish Catches, taxidermy, and quaint homemade quilts and potholders. The shelves are stocked with free hunting and fishing regulations, last-minute camping supplies, and cold drinks. And the food was basic, tasty cafe grub. (German food is occasionally available to those who call well ahead--I was salivating at the next table's plate of sausage, potatoes, and cabbage.) I had a perfect turkey club on white toast; my husband had a grilled cheese on dark rye with sweet potato fries. Mostly locals inhabit the space, but everyone treated us as if we were regulars

The Covered Wagon  Cafe

We stopped here on our drive along less-traveled roads from Dickinson to Badlands National Park. What a find! Good food, good prices, good service. This is a great place to stop and get a bite to eat. I got the Reuben and cheese curds which were both delicious. I’m excited to come back and try their buffalo burger.
