“There are better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Breakfast reasonable and good portions. Lunches are are pretty good. Dinner however needs improvement. The steaks themselves are pretty good, but side dishes lack. The mashed and garlic mashed are instant potatoes. The bread is a piece of Texas toast you get out of the freezer. The veggies are usually awful, they are frozen and steamed. Salads are iceberg pulled out of a bag. Desserts are food service types pulled out of a box. Wine list average at best. The place has potential but a ways away from achieving it

“Incredible steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

My husband and I had a completely enjoyable dinner. We had the Mineral Palace Ribeye and WOW what a meal. The salad was fresh, the steak was tender and delicious. The steak is a huge cut of meat for two people. and the sides are each persons choice. Our server was terrific. The best dining experience we've had in Deadwood!

“Consistently Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

The Gem Steakhouse & Saloon located above Mineral Palace in Deadwood has a large variety of steaks as well as other delicious menu items to choose from. Some recent selecitons include the Motherlode Quesadilla (chicken), Merrick's Garlic Ribeye 12oz & Dority's Black & Bleu Steak 8oz sirloin. Our waitress was very pleasant and our experience is always enjoyable when having dinner here. We love the bar and patio weather permitting of course. We will stop here again soon.

“Great Food--Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Once again, the Mineral Palace Hotel and the Gem Steakhouse have outdone themselves in support of our annual Ski For Light event. The food, the service and the friendliness go way beyond expectations.

“Wonderful Food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner after finally finding the restaurant. It's upstairs of the casino by elevator. The steaks were tender and the prices very reasonable. The salads were fresh and cold. The service was fast and the waiter informative. The best meal we had in Deadwood!
