What an incredible area of the country to spend quality family time together. Walking around in the Park and admiring the spires is quite an experience.

Cedar Pass Restaurant

Cedar Pass Restaurant

Our restaurant provides a variety of locally and regionally sourced dishes to our guests for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We make our own fry bread each day for our Sioux Indian Tacos - large fluffy fry bread topped with refried beans, buffalo meat (or vegetarian option of spicy black bean burger) topped with shredded lettuce, tomato, cheddar cheese and a sprinkling of black olives. Served with a side of salsa and sour cream the Sioux Taco is a large treat in the Badlands.

We proudly serve CHERRY BEAN coffee in our restaurant. Cherry Bean is a FAIR TRADE, ORGANIC, INDEPENDENT coffee supplier based in rural Parker, South Dakota.

There's a selection of other entrees including vegetarian and gluten free dishes available, hearty locally sourced beef and buffalo burgers, free range chicken, steaks, line caught sustainably sourced fish, plus fresh soup & salad bar. Interested in trying something different? We serve South Dakota made wine & beer. Be sure to ask about our daily selections of Kuchen, (the Official Dessert of South Dakota) and South Dakota State University made Ice Cream. The ice cream sampler plate is delicious!

Whether you grab a mid-day snack or make time for an enjoyable meal, take a break to see the far-spreading views of the Badlands spires from a table at the Cedar Pass Restaurant.
