Christy Schlumbaum

Great service, drinks and food! I had the crispy chicken sandwich. It was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. My margarita on the rocks was also great. The man that waited on us was very nice and made sure we were taken care of but didn't go overboard. I will eat there again.

Sheila Fox

I was really impressed with the food selection found on-line and decided to have my Birthday party here. We were seated in the Vault...a private room that was really fun to hang out in and get a little noisy without disturbing other customers, plus the 2nd door allowed my smoker friends to step quickly outside and get back to the party with ease. Then there was the food YUM! I do have to day the menu, although creative all the fonts make me dizzy as I was trying to read it. My group started out with the Goat Cheese Spinach Dip, stuffed mushrooms and the ahi tuna appetizer. All three were delicious! My favorite was the stuffed mushrooms! My Entree was the rosemary Chicken and I had split it with a friend, after tasting it I wished I had the whole portion! Our Server was friendly and had a good time with us, was very attentive to details and a blast to have! Thanks for a Great Birthday Experience!

Christophina Lynch

Awesome burger!

Ryan VanMeter

The food was very, very good. The service was very, very slow. Ordered a beer, waited at least ten minutes, waitress came back and said they were out of that beer. Not a big deal, ordered another beer, got it promptly. Ordered a pita, waited probably 20 minutes. Waitress came back and said they didn't have all the ingredients needed for what I ordered. Ordered a Market burger instead, which was awesome. Ate with a group of of 12, six were adults, and everything was delicious. We saw many people seated much later than us eat and leave before we even got our food. Again, great tasting food, service was lacking. Would go back and try again.

Amazing atmosphere! We had one waitress who was serving the whole restaurant and she still did an amazing job at our table. I ordered the veggie pita and I will certainly be coming back for it, so delicious! Also, they have cheap drinks on Thursdays which is really great.

Great food wonderful service. The decor is awesome and plenty of room. The food presentation was awesome as well. I ate the seared ahi tuna, it tasted amazing. We were driving by on the interstate and decided to look for a nicer place to have lunch with the family, this fit the bill perfectly. Worth taking the extra time.

My boss and I were traveling through Brookings, SD on a business trip. We did a quick search on the internet for a good place to eat in Brookings, SD and the old Market Eatery was rated as #5. It looked charming on their web page and the menu sounded mouthwatering and high end. It exceeded our expectations. The dining areas were warm and inviting. The decor was appealing and outright fun to look at and imagine in my home. HOWEVER, the food was incredible. Kudos to the chef....the goats cheese/spinach dip was "to die for". Smooth and creamy and full of flavor. We both had the special - Black and Blue New York Strip Steak with mashed potatoes. Yum....the steak melted in my mouth, and the mashed red potatoes and roasted brussel sprouts were a flavor explosion that had me cooing. Portions were sizable; in fact so much so, I was getting full with the goats cheese/spinach dip appetizer. While I just couldn't eat one of the desserts at the restaurant, I did bring home a rich chocolate cupcake with cream cheese/peppermint frosting. It was such a pleasure eating it for breakfast the next morning. I just wanted more. I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a dining experience. It would be a great place for a first date, or a girls night out, or even an after work "I deserve this - pampering" . It is second to none in my book. And I look forward to going back every time I travel through Brookings, SD. Thank you staff and chef.

A little slow, food was good.

Becky Hofer

LOVE their seared tuna.


Price is decent, but the portions are small. The food is inconsistent. I like the four-seasons style room. I'd equate it to a more interesting Applebee's based on food type and price, but what do I know. Update: I've been there twice since and both times it was just plain bad. Artichoke dip was a thin consistency, thinner than any cheese soup I've had, and the asparagus in my pasta was browning. Just lackluster food I wish I hadn't spent money on.

Trina Baker

Love this place

Jordan Ensz

Just a absoulute awesome relaxing place and an awesome burgers!!

Jessica, Tree Ring Art

Delicious food, amazing cupcakes!

Cheryl Glazier

Used to be a great place for dinner and drinks. Drinks are good but food is mediocre and they need to train their servers. I think we were the first table she ever served. Terrible.

Allen Jones

Past visits were average food. This time, better.

Audie Baker

Great food, great prices!

Delicious food and fantastic service before, during and after our recent event. Cool setting - we loved it and will definitely be back!

We had a medium size party. The service and most of the food was pretty good. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating.


Thad Drietz

Awesome food. Lunch service was a little slow

Ben Petersen

It's solid enough to keep coming back, but each time there is a issue with our food or drinks. Heads up, if it's craft beer night you have to ask for their list, the specials aren't on a menu and their on tap beers aren't one of those. Food is executed well with unique twists that brings us back wherever we are in town.

Ashley Abrahamson

Curt Herron

Excellent food, great service.

Misty Cowell

First time there and my daughter and i were so impressed with old meets new feeling. Its industrial yet country. Just felt super cozy. It was ladies night and happy hour so we couldn't beat that. We tried a few different drinks, the mojito was the best one i have ever tried, the bloody Mary's are more citrusy and i like hot and spicy but still good. I love blue cheese and had their burger and it was so good. My daughter loves pasta and went with alfredo. Very tasty and enough left over to bring home to share. Not to mention our waiter was super helpful with helping us to decide what to try and he even brought us out a tray of desserts to try. We were so full that we brought our desserts home for breakfast.

Gary Carlson

Jen Cleveland

Tere Pedersen

Excellent food and service. Unique medium priced signature menu for those who desire more than the average chain restaurant choices. The building was a bank and still has the Vault door. Our party had the chicken stirfry, cajun salmon, pita, burger and steak. Full service bar.

Kollin Volkert

Had a great Bloody Mary and an amazing Burger!

Chase Carlson

Best lunch date spot in brookings

micah hayes

This is a great place to grab a drink or a bite to eat. They have great atmosphere here with excellent decor. And it's one of the few places in town that you can grab a drink on the weekend without it being too crowded. I highly recommend the angry orchard on tap.

Chad Nicola

Went for lunch. Food was great and prices were reasonable.

Adam Weger

Dallas Peters

Food was really good as it usually is. The service was really lacking on our last visit. The waiter would never come back. The waitress at the table next to us was awesome. Maybe it was our waiters first night?

Food and service was good. Disappointed with the cheesecake, may have to try the cupcakes next time


We were here with a group last Summer. It wasn't busy, drinks took forever to get, and weren't right when we did get them. There was a bug in my salad. The waitress apologized, and took my salad. She did not offer anything in exchange or replace it or compensate for it on our bill. We reluctantly went back again recently. How could it be worse, right? It was! I ordered a steak, medium. It was warm and bloody. The drinks still took forever. And service in general was terribly slow. They also had to tell us they were "out" of several menu items. If you are looking for a place to eat, choose elsewhere.


My fiance and I went here the other day and it was AMAZING. I had the Old Market Burger and it was incredible and the fries were literally the best fries I've ever had. My fiance had a Chicken Pasta I wish I remembered the name of. It was incredible as well. We will definitely be coming back. I'd recommend this to everyone.

Andrew Garman

Great place to eat! The drinks were made to perfection. It was easy to tell the food was made with very fresh ingredients.

Jason Norgaard

The food was good and the service was good.

Kelley Wininger

New Year's eve, waitress slow... Food took forever, even after the waitress kept telling us they were OUT of pulled pork, mashed potatoes, gave wrong orders, food was cold and had no SoCo... Very disappointed,... Sorry for waitress as she only been there for 2days...

Alice Gardner

Menu was limited. Serving size was small. Service was good.

Jessica Heard

Alfredo was watery. Spouse asked for shrimp with his entrée and it never came. All our cocktails were watered down. Soup was good though...the three previous times that we've been here, we've had mediocre experiences. This time, everything was poor.

Taylor Beckstead

Is a nice place to sit and wait for food. We waited 10 minutes to get just ordered for drinks. Then about 20 minutes finally got food ordered. Then waited another 30 for or more for our good to come out. Just not enough people to serve and do stuff. Also wasn’t super busy either so that couldn’t be an excuse.

Jake H

Food is good, but the beer selection is far below average, and either the website or the waitress was wrong because our lunch was not half off between 2 and 4 like the website says.

Lacey Dawn

Chance Wulff

Todd Schneider

over priced

Service is slow. Hit or miss on food depending on the night. Amazing deserts

Peggy Sourile

Interesting menu choices. Good prices.

Lauren Johnson

The food here is absolutely delicious! It is the perfect spot to grab lunch with a friend. The atmosphere is cozy and it's also family friendly. Service is relatively fast and friendly. The fries are especially delicious and unique. They serve Coke products instead of Pepsi which is always a plus in my book. All in all it's a great restaurant!

Chuck Point

Great food nice atmosphere.

Justin Heard

I had never had a Manhattan that tasted like an orange slice in a glass of water until here. I've been to Old Market 4 times now over 3 or so years. Each time has been mediocre to awful, with 3 experiences being the latter. My drinks have always been watered down and the food has been poor. I would not recommend this establishment to anyone.

Jennifer McIntyre

Amazing vegetarian options, including the Adult Grilled Cheese with veggies.

Anna P

Rusty Wienk

Consistent quality. Good service.

Good food but small portions and spendy for what you get. It's a nice older style place but for this area it's a spendy place.

Jodi Morton

Great food, love the atmosphere of this place. Expect the dining experience not to be fast. All servers are friendly.

Matthew Penner

Anna Tellekson

House salad with seared tuna plus cucumber ranch dressing.....Best salad ever!

Jesse Shuman

Just a good place to be.

Luis Duque

Great food and great service!

Daniel Friedrichs

My "blue cheese" burger was a rubber ball, MASSIVELY overcooked and without any discernible blue cheese. The "fries" were actually slices of battered potato. Everything was WAY WAY WAY too salty. Everyone in our party commented that the food was insanely over-salted. My five slices of potato probably had 10x the salt of a large order of McDonalds' fries - they were nearly inedible. One member of our group has celiac disease and specifically ordered a gluten free option (and the menu specifies items as "gluten free" or not), yet she later suffered considerable GI distress consistent with consuming gluten. The kitchen apparently does not understand how to prepare gluten free food without contamination. If your gluten free diet is some sort of elective health food kick, fine - but those with serious allergies to wheat should NOT trust this restaurant.
