Traditional pub fare served in a fun atmosphere. The Knuckle Saloon’s open floor plan gives you plenty of space to roam around, mingle and play a game of pool.

LAR also offers a variety of entrees, sandwiches, tacos, steak tips, burgers and more.

LAR serves brunch on the weekends from 10 am-2 pm. Try their Bloody Mary bar, and enjoy bottomless mimosas.

One Eyed Jack’s Saloon

A fan favorite during the Rally, the world-famous One Eyed Jack’s Saloon has great bartenders, a great atmosphere, and great music. But be forewarned: this is not a kid-friendly establishment.

Stop in for a drink and watch the main drag from one of their many outdoor balconies. Check out the second floor to see the bar’s famous dancers. 

While you’re there, grab a bite to eat. One Eyed Jack’s has a wide selection of steaks, sandwiches, salads, vegetarian options, and appetizers. Top it off with a slice of apple pie or the whiskey cherry cheesecake. 

If you’re heading to the rally early in the day, stop by for their all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast, which runs from 7 am through 10 am every day.

One Eyed Jack’s is only open during the Rally and is just a 12-minute drive from our Vacation Court Lodge.

Iron Horse Saloon

The Iron Horse Saloon is more than just a restaurant – it’s an entertainment destination. With more than 25,000 sprawling square feet of indoor and outdoor space, the Iron Horse has three stories of balconies with great views of the drag.

Step outside into the stage and party area, which fills an entire city block.

The Iron Horse, like One Eyed Jack’s, is only open during the Rally, but it’s a must-visit if you’re here in the late summer.

Our lodging in the Black Hills is just a short drive from the best eateries in town. Bring the whole family – many of our rentals sleep up to 12 or 16 people – and enjoy all that Sturgis has to offer.
