Ruby House Restaurant, Keystone, SD

Soon after our arrival in Rapid City, South Dakota, last Saturday afternoon, the lovely Robin and I were treated to a late lunch at the Ruby House in Keystone, South Dakota.
There we stepped into the Old West in the turn-of-the-century dining room appointed with red velvet draperies, period pictures in antique frames, and antique hand guns and rifles.
Despite its appearance, the Ruby House's history dates only to 1970! The original establishment was destroyed by a devastating June 1972 flood, and a subsequent structure was gutted by fire in 2003. The Ruby House and its next-door neighbor, the Red Garter Saloon, were reopened for business on May 20, 2004.
I had the huckleberry chicken salad, and it was different and delicious. Robin had a hamburger and fries, and enjoyed it, too. The service was attentive and efficient, and if the company hadn't been so enjoyable we would have enjoyed our surroundings even more.

The Ruby House is located at 124 Winter Street in bustling downtown Keystone, South Dakota.
