Better than expected

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. The salad was served on a cold plate, and was very fresh. The steaks were very tender and actually quite good. The baked potato was cooked just right. The service was exceptional. If you wanted to play Keno you could. I would recommend... read more

I told the manager, that I have dined all over the world. My father and I dined at the Derby restaurant, and I was a bit apprehensive as I walked in. The staff was outstanding, and the food was delicious. The quality of the food was as good as a fine dining restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised, when the bill... More

Amazing steaks...great service. I can't say enough about our experience at The Derby. The spinach salad was delicious and the steaks were cooked to perfection. Our martinis were well made. Our server was friendly and knowledgable. My husband and I will definitely be back the next time we're in Butte!

It was a 200 mile detour on a trip to Washington from Utah, but it was worth every bite to have dinner at the Derby. Once you try this fine steak house you might find yourself willing to go out of your way to get there. No fancy lace table cloths or violin players. Great food with many unique twists,... More

I have spent the last 7 years traveling around the USA for work. Every week in one or two, sometimes three different states. Traveling so much can get monotonous, so I decided to find the best steak in the nation. That steak was at the Tavern on Rush in Chicago. The Derby Steakhouse had a NY Strip cooked to perfection...

We ate at the Derby for a family celebration-18 people- we called to let them know it was a big group. The restaurant was not busy at all- Wednesday night. The server told us we all had to have the same sides because it was such a big group- are you kidding me..we had to choose the same potatoes-really-aren't you... More

My husband was craving a steak and several people had recommended The Derby. We went early on a Saturday evening and were seated right away. The menu had a nice variety of choices and they had a full bar menu. I had a chicken and pasta dish which was wonderful and my husband's steak was cooked how he ordered it.... More

We decided to try the seafood dish even though our waitress said to eat steak. My wife did get a Filet which was really good and rivaled big city steaks. The seafood dish was good, but don't expect a Ruth Chris seafood platter as the pieces in it were smaller but good. The real gem of this place is the... More

The Derby is dated and is an odd combination of fine dining and gambling. Where you can enjoy a filet mignon and check to see if you've won a keno game at the same time. One would think this is a negative combination but it makes the experience all the better. The staff is friendly and available and the food... More
