Dine with the presidents and enjoy a delicious array of food choices for breakfast, lunch or dinner at our newly remodeled dining area: Carvers’ Café. Cozy up to the fireplace, constructed with rock blasted right off the face of Mt. Rushmore while savoring a hand poured latte or cappuccino brewed at Rushmore Roasters. Sit a spell during a beautiful South Dakota blue sky day on Grandview Terrace and enjoy a Dakota Bison Burger grilled from locally sourced bison charbroiled at Memorial Grill. Looking for something heartier? Try the New England Pot Roast or Lemon Pepper Chicken from Dakota Kitchen. For a healthier meal, go to Black Hills Harvest where you can enjoy a healthy, but filling Wojapi Wrap or Chef Salad. Save room for dessert like our home-made fudge, or Monumental Ice Cream cone made with Thomas Jefferson’s original vanilla recipe from 1780; both available at Memorial Team Ice Cream. The dress is always casual, the setting always relaxed, and the view is, well, monumental at South Dakota’s only certified four-star green restaurant.
