The Pitchfork Steak Fondue in Medora has come a long way in the last 50 years.
What started with a single pot in the back of a truck has grown to become a big, nightly undertaking. We’ve gotten used to serving thousands of tasty steaks fondue-style each summer. But we’ve never had a summer like this!
For the first time in our history, we served more than 50,000 steaks at the Pitchfork Steak Fondue in a single summer in 2021—50,383, to be exact!
So to celebrate the milestone, we decided to give away a very special gift to the lucky 50,000th guest: an authentic Pitchfork Steak Fondue pitchfork. (Don’t worry, we deep cleaned it!) Have a watch!
We hope you are as excited for the Kat Perkins September 7 concert as we are! Her performance on August 22 was absolutely fantastic and we can’t wait for you to see the concert everyone is raving about.

There are many exceptional dining experiences in Medora! The most unique is the Pitchfork Steak Fondue. Where else can you savor a fondued 12 oz. rib-eye steak as you overlook the Badlands from atop a bluff at the Tjaden Terrace. We might be a little bias but Beth Schatz Kaylor who writes the fabulous blog Rhubarb and Venison agrees, the Pitchfork Fondue and the Medora Musical make for a wonderful evening! Here are a few snippets from her recent post about the Pitchfork Fondue and Medora Musical.
“Deep fried steak. That’s supposed to be the star attraction at the Pitchfork Fondue in Medora, ND, but I’ve gotta tell you, although the steak is great, the view from the Pitchfork Fondue dining area is simply spectacular. Bring your camera.
But back to the food. As any visitor knows, when you go to Medora, you have to make a night out of 1) the Pitchfork Fondue, followed by 2) the Medora Musical. My carnivore husband LOVES the Pitchfork Fondue. As someone who treads a little heavier in vegetables than meat, even I admit that this is one tasty steak. Throw a steak in a pot of boiling hot oil and it sears immediately, creating a juicy cut with a crispy crust. As a crust fanatic, I completely approve of a crusty steak. A country band plays as diners load up their metal lunch trays (yay for reusable trays!) with coleslaw, baked beans, baked potatoes, raw veggies and Texas toast. The sides aren’t particularly interesting – they all play second fiddle to the meaty entree. “
