Exceptional Dining since 1909

From the remains of the McLaughlin Tie and Timber sawmill, the Glendoris Inn was opened in 1909 and Spearfish Canyon had its first lodge and eatery.

With over 100 years of exceptional service and food, the Latchstring Restaurant continues that tradition today with all homemade menu items. Whether it's a romantic dinner for two by the roaring fireplace or the whole family, the Latchstring has a menu that is sure to please all!
