Steak was cooked to perfection

Great flavored steak cooked to perfection with lots of choices for side dishes. The noodles with white sauce were amazing.

We have always had good service and food, however the decor is unchanged for many years. The steaks have always been very good.

The food here is as others have noted in the reviews. The steaks are outstanding and the service was very good. We did read other reviews talking about service, but ours was very good. This is a stop, if you are in Montana for vacation.

We were brought to a table, and it took at least 15 minutes before waitress took our drink order. 40 minutes to get our food, they were not busy, it was a Wednesday night. We arrived at 7 pm, got our meal at 7:40, pasta was cold, chicken sat under a heat lamp, dried out

Are you sure this is for the Derby Steakhouse? We don't have a heat lamp and all food is cooked to order. If this was the Derby, I assure you this is not a normal experience. Our hostess as well as our staff are trained to attend to guests as soon as they are seated. Please email me at patch_3535@yahoo.com... More

We came here highly recommended from the Holiday Inn Express and we were immediately drawn into the restaurant by the wonderful smells drifting from the kitchen. The food was EXCELLENT, the service outstanding, and the bill was very reasonable. My husband loved his chicken- it was very moist on the inside, and crispy and nicely seasoned on the outside.

We had dinner there last night and it was a treat, as always! The Derby is a restaurant, bar, and casino, which doesn't differentiate it at all from almost every other eating establishment in Butte. What does make it stand out is the quality of the food and the excellent service. This is only one of our visits to the... More

I cannot speak highly enough of my visit... we had an amazing ribeye, melt in your mouth delicious. The spinach salad, wontons, baked brie and lemon cake were stellar. The wait staff were attentive and friendly. I'll definitely be back!!

I had the lobster with ribeye that was absolutely delicious and more than enough food for two people let alone just me! There has only been one other place I've had horse radish that is to my standard of awesomeness and theirs topped it. Pretty sure I could have shot fire out my nose. I also loved the bread that...

We ate here while staying at the nearby Holiday Inn Express and really enjoyed the experience. The hotel staff referred us. The steak was a little tough, but the plate held lots of food...and it was nicely presented. The atmosphere is small town friendly and we recommend you check it out!

Anytime we visit Butte we eat at the Derby. My dinner consisted of the spinach salad which was great. I ordered the petite filet,medium and with red potatoes. My dinner was fantastic. My friends ordered the huge T-bone (which was overcooked) and the steak and lobster (which also was overcooked). The only problem that really made the visit unacceptable was... More
