For several years I have enjoyed a lunch in Diamond Lil's with family and/or friends. The food is very good. I especially like their soups and salads. Not everyone is always up for buffets or big meals. The atmosphere here is fun. You get good service from friendly staff, and the prices are reasonable. I would expect nothing less from... More

Friendly bar tenders helped us watch baseball & soccer. Cold beer, good prices and food. we discovered this place by accident. Worth the walk up the steps or if that doesn't work for you they have an elevator.

Kevin Costner fell in love with this area during his filming of "Dances with Wolves" and has invested in a casino and restaurant. Diamond Lil's is on the second floor of his building, above the casino and below his upscale restaurant. It is a very nice bar and the food was great. We loved the displays of memorabilia from his...

When in Deadwood you have to go to Diamond Lil's, the food is excellent, & reasonably priced, the staff is friendly, helpful & knowledgeable about what's on the menu. And their soups are the best.

Stayed over in Deadwood on our tour through National Parks with Archers Cosmos (excellent tour). After a very busy day, dragged ourselves up the stairs and collapsed onto a bar stool. Where we sat for the rest of the evening enjoying the food, excellent beers and very friendly and informative bar staff. We usually avoid any bars linked to a... More

We enjoyed our lunch here - we both had sandwiches which were very good. The atmosphere was great - large life-size shadow boxes filled with clothing worn by Kevin Costner in his movies. While waiting on the food, it was interesting to walk around and look at these. Our service was good, too!

This is another one of our "go to" places. The atmosphere is fun as the walls are decorated in many movie posters and outfits the actor Kevin Costner wore in his movie roles over the past several years. The staff will even let you look around the area if your not interested in having a drink or bite to eat... More

The food was good with portions plentiful. Nothing special about it, however. Service was very friendly and fast. If it wasn't for all the Kevin Costner memorabilia, it would not be any different from any other burger joint.

Even the very fabulous bathroom with tub jets was decorated in vintage style. Very clean, very plush. We had the 3-bed room, and though it was the middle of Kool Deadwood Nites (with all the vintage cars, motorcycles and partyers), we slept really well! Then went to Jakes upstairs for breakfast and the Deadwood bus tour right outside the front... More

Just had an awesome (Diamond Lil's Supreme) pizza and the all-time-best Bloody Mary I've ever had! So glad we stopped in after a day of sightseeing!!!
