“Visiting from bismarck north dakota. Saw the pictures and reviews of this place and had to see for myself. The service was so fast and friendly we were in and out in 25 minutes. The food was well prepared, and cooked to order. If you are getting the breakfast burrito, I suggest you get bacon and sausage because you deserve to spoil yourself right? Slather it up with some of their hot queso cheese and you will be talking about this breakfast for years to come. The carmel roll was definitely fantastic as well. I could recommend the carmel or cinnamon roll both, as they look like the same base roll, but they either ad a rich buttery carmel sauce too or a generous portion of cream cheese on the cinnamon roll. The 2 items listed cost $25 and some change. And in this day and age you cannot get a generic breakfast for 2 from McDonald's for the same price, but I doubt that you will even remember that the next day. Will definitely be back when back in the area.“

“I had the pancake sandwich and since I have a sensitivity to eggs, I asked for hash browns instead of the eggs. The hash browns were delicious. They're just what you hope for when you get hash browns. Nice and brown on the top and soft in the middle. The pancakes were good, although I couldn't finish 3 big pancakes. I kind of wish they offered 2 and lowered the price a bit. The coffee was weak. It has no flavor. It wasn't horrible. It just didn't taste like much of anything. The bacon was excellent. Service was excellent!“

“Do not miss this restaurant! There were 4 of us and we had the Indecision special. When you order it, everyone in your party has to order it. My hubby is a meat and potatoes guy, so we thought we might have to order something else but our server Hannah said she could request meat forward. We had 4 courses. The first was a lemony shrimp with butter lettuce and blood orange pico de Gallo, then a kale salad with roasted parsnips and lardons. Then walnut parmesan pork with fried sage. The last was beef with a veal demi. Everything was so tasty. The portions were smaller, but my husband is a big eater and sharing my meat portions with him and the Princess Fiona dessert we were just fine. Definitely planning on going back. Service was excellent and I'm dreaming about the pork and sage and the veal demi. This was the most delicious meal I've had at a restaurant in a long time and all of our party agreed.Parking: Parking is definitely limited. Snag a spot as soon as you see one, or get there a little earlier.“

“Was visiting my daughters and their families here in Rapid City and neither of them had been here before so decided to give it a shot to celebrate my birthday. The atmosphere was great… service was amazing and to top it off a very generous patron anonymously paid for our meal! When we asked the waitress who it was so we could personally thank them, she said the individual doesn’t want to recognized. So both of my daughters’ husbands were unable to join us to celebrate as one was out of town and the other was sick…. Both of my daughters are in their third trimester so let’s just say we were all very hungry and wanting to enjoy! Thank you Shipwreck for the great experience and also to the generous individual for picking up our tab!“

“A staple of the west Rapid community for decades the atmosphere has never really changed, which makes it impressive. Employees embrace the culture, and the service is almost always good to the point it's a shock if anyone ever has a bad day when doing their job. The food is always edible and good. Portion sizes, though, are on the small side. So if you're overly hungry, it's either going to cost for more, or you may have to go elsewhere.“

“We have been to wings and rings a few times now so I guess it’s time to write a review. The first time I visited this restaurant I ordered some of the appetizers for a meal and they were alright, nothing to brag about. I think if anything the garlic Parmesan fries were pretty delicious. The second time I visited I ended up getting some cauliflower wings and loved their sauce options. Now the last time I went I tried their Korean chicken burger and this is where it is at. I highly recommend this burger and make sure to upgrade your fries to the garlic Parmesan covered. The atmosphere is a typical sports bar with no hard liquor but several different taps available. The wait staff has been great and I have nothing to complain about there. Great selection on their menu and choices for everyone. Would recommend as a place to take family or friends who are really picky and chicken is always a winner.“

I had the Buffalo Meat Loaf and the Flourless Chocolate Cake. Everything was amazing. The restaurant was beautiful, the food was delicious and the service perfect! Our server, Grace S, was amazing! She took great care of us. She was knowledgeable and very attentive. I asked her to suggest a good local beer. After asking me what I liked, she brought a great beer. Their musical choices were stellar! I doubt we will ever drive through that area and not stop in.“

It was a handmade pattie, not premade round. The little general store also sells groceries. Do not go here if you are high maintenance. It is, definitely a little hole in the wall where people are hard working, kind and serve a mean cheeseburger.“
