The Restaurant that’s Worth The Drive to the Black Hills of South Dakota
Would you drive 385 miles to eat dinner? How about if it's a Once-In-A-Lifetime Meal? The kind of meal you'll tell stories about for years after.
Eatthis.com sought out the Once-In-A-Lifetime Meal in every state and highlighted Skogen Kitchen (29 N 5th St, Custer, SD 57730) as the best in South Dakota. If you think a hotdish casserole or something coming out of a fryer is what we're talking about, then think again.
"The restaurant serves globally-inspired fare with a focus on local ingredients," Eatthis.com said about this Custer favorite. A review says that Chef Raney's place is "...a very fine dining experience without being pretentious."
Chef Joseph Raney is a rising star on the South Dakota culinary scene serving up Pork Shank, Duck, Salmon, Beef, Dover Sole, and Maine Lobster Cavatelli.
Anytime you see housemade on the menu, then you know your dining experience is going to result in a positive review. Just like Steven from Scottsdale, Arizona:
My family gathered for the first time in nearly two years in the Black Hills. Several of us had seen this restaurant online and wanted to try it. There were 7 of us and we were all wowed by the food and service. Great inventive locavore menu and presentation. Everything we ordered was very good. This place would be at home in any big city. ~Tripadvisor
While enjoying a weekend getaway or extended Black Hills vacation, reservations are a must. You're just minutes from Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, and a picturesque drive to Lead and Deadwood on Highway 385.
