  Pheasant Dining Room, State Game Lodge - Custer State Park, SD

On US 16A about 2 mi. w of the intersection of US 16A and SR 36 - 14 mi. e of Custer.

This place is dripping with history. The State Game Lodge and Resort served as the "Summer White House" for President Calvin Coolidge in 1927 and was visited by President Dwight D. Eisenhower for several days in 1953. It was built in 1920, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The rustic, homey decor and untamed environment belies the fine dining experience awaiting visitors in the Pheasant Dining Room. Their unique menu features wild game specialties prepared by a professional chef. Choose from buffalo ribeye, cowboy beef ribeye, roasted cornbread stuffed quails, elk loin, grilled salmon, red deer chops, fresh local trout, or one of a number of other entrees. A house specialty is the pumpkin seed encrusted pheasant breast served with cilantro rice and cumin spaghetti squash. (which I highly recommend.). Even the garden salads have flair... containing spiced candied pecans, oven dried apple chips and goat cheese. The servers are extremely knowledgeable and attentive. A children’s menu is available (includes a buffalo burger). The Pheasant Dining Room’s oneness with its beautiful surroundings and local culture provides for a truly one-of-a-kind experience. This is fine dining, therefore be prepared to pay. Our bill was $89 for two adults and two children. Reservations are recommended. (605) 255-4541
