Experience the Best & Only Dining at Mount Rushmore

Dine with the presidents and enjoy a delicious array of food choices for lunch or dinner at our newly remodeled dining area: Carvers’ Café.

Dakota Kitchen

Hearty meals for a hearty appetite. If you’re looking for fine food with a finer view the Dakota Kitchen is here to serve.

Memorial Team Ice Cream

The Memorial Team Ice Cream station is named in honor of the baseball team formed around the Mount Rushmore carvers. Some workers were actually hired for their pitching and fielding skills, not their carving prowess. The Mt. Rushmore amateur baseball team took second place in state competition in 1939. Impressive life-size photos of the carvers in their baseball uniforms can be viewed in the parlor while one of our friendly staff scoops an ice cream delight just for you.
