“Known for their beef - so order the steak and enjoy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Made a day trip to Butte, stopped at the Derby many years ago and wanted to try it again. I enjoyed the petite filet and the baby red potatoes and home made bread. Nothing much special, if you like live keno you can eat and play. I wouldn't make a special trip to Butte to eat here, but would come again if we are in the area. Steaks cooked perfectly and they put a dab of butter on top, makes it rich but very tasty.

Mediocre overpriced food with a slightly sleazy atmosphere.

“BEEF!!! Great Steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

We have a cabin in Dillon & been in/out of Butte for several years but never tried The Derby until now. It was great. Beef is so much better in Montana and they cooked it perfectly medium rare (usually overcooked in Washington state). Very friendly and professional service - waitress was a sweetie. Atmosphere was a throwback to the "old days", the 70's/80's. Kids/Sr menu available and was well portioned for a growing 10 year old boy. Loved the place. A little pricy compared to the places we eat at in Dillon but worth it for us to get good beef that doesn't exist in Washington. Don't judge by the outside, it is family friendly - go in and enjoy!
