My wife and I went to dinner on March 17th and we were looking forward to a great steak house dinner. While the outside looks like your in for one of the best diner experiences you soon fine that they spend more money on the looks of the place then on the food itself. We have been to a lot... More

We have always loved the Dutchman's Hideout Steakhouse at the Mining Camp. The food is great; for wine lovers, a good choice is available. The servers have always been competent and friendly. When we have visitors, we always take them here for dinner. We live in the area for three months, and just ate there for the fourth time this... More

We were told by a local to try the beef ribs. About half of us did along with a choice of potatoes and corn on the cob. All diners were delighted with chicken, prime rib, steaks large and small. Seasoned Mashed potatoes were tasty and the mesquite grilled corn was a little tough but worth the chomp. We felt it... More

This restaurant has been advertised as a place to go. We would not go back. We arrived on a Saturday night . The prime rib tasted as if it had freezer burn. The waitress was not friendly. She appeared to not want to be there. Did not like complaint about food and did nothing about it. Restaurant connected with shows.... More
