Good dinner in Custer, SD

If you're visiting the Mt. Rushmore/Black Hills area, we can highly recommend the Sage Creek Grille in Custer. Unlike the other steak/seafood/prime rib places in town, they make everything from scratch, inluding breads and desserts. We weren't in the mood for a big dinner, so DH had the buffalo burger, perfectly cooked and accompanied by scrumptions fried-in-butter red potatoes - he had a second helping of potatoes for dessert. I had a salad and the house soup, a pork stew, served with three slices of some the best sourdough bread I've had away from the west coast. The wine list is small, but well-chosen, not the usual distributor selection, and the beers show thought as well - several microbrews, many from the midwest, at a reasonable $3.50 a bottle. We'll probably go back tomorrow for a steak.
